My teaching method is based on the communicative approach to learning. I demonstrate a new language function and allow students to work together and discuss their answers in the language they are learning. I have experience providing classes to students of all ages (infants, children, teenagers and adults) and at all levels (complete beginners to C1). I have also had 15 hours of training and 11 hours of observed teaching in the Vaughan teaching method.
I am a native speaker in English and a fluent speaker of French and Spanish. I have a Masters in TESOL and I have 4 years experience teaching ESL in schools and as a language tutor. I have taught Cambridge YLE, KET, PET, FCE and Trinity 1 and 2. I also have experience tutoring Spanish GCSE and French A-Level.
