I tutor a range of ages from nursery school children applying to primary school to university graduates learning English. My most frequent clients are children studying to take their 11+ exams.
I practice the ‘Presentation, Practice, Production’ methodology of teaching in my lessons. I start each lesson with a short warm up activity. I then move on to a presentation, teaching the skills and knowledge required. After this I provide worksheets for students to practice what they have learnt. I conclude by giving the student an activity which enables them to present what they have achieved in that lesson. I also provide weekly update emails to each parent to keep them informed of progress made in each session.
My teaching experience includes 3 years of professional tutoring in London, along side teaching English in schools in Kenya, Rwanda and Brazil and volunteer work in local primary schools as a reading mentor. Furthermore I am currently studying a Teaching English as a Foreign Language course which helps build my knowledge of lesson planning and teaching techniques.
What I do when I am not tutoring:
Alongside tutoring and studying ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language,’ I am a playwright. I write for Blue Song Theatre Company, which produces plays that tour around the UK.
