About Tutor

I am a passionate linguist with a first class honours degree in Spanish and Italian with distinction in spoken Spanish and Italian from the University of Exeter, Uk. I also speak basic French and Romanian. In addition I have a CELTA certificate to teach English as a foreign language. I have lived in Bolivia, Italy and the UK and love languages and learning about different cultures. I really enjoy teaching and I am a patient and kind teacher. In my free time I enjoy baking cakes and going for coffee with family and friends. I also enjoy reading and going to the cinema as well as travelling to different countries. I am able to discuss various topics from current affairs and politics through to travel and fashion. I can explain grammar in a simple and understandable way and I will help you to grow and develop your language skills.

Experience

I have taught English in a school in Bolivia as well as to refugees and asylum seekers in Italy and private individuals in Spain. In addition, I taught in a language school in Swindon, UK for over two years and also in a language school in Bristol, UK. I have also taught business English and online English for several years.

Teaching Approach

I try to tailor lessons around each individual student and feel the need to be flexible is essential. This is because each student has different needs and abilities and different learning styles.
I try to focus on a communicative approach as I believe it is important for students to get talking and communicating from an early stage.
I try to use as much multimedia and interactive materials as possible.
I listen to what my students want and strive to incorporate their ideas and needs as much as possible.
