My method of teaching is to make sure that my students understand the meaning, form, pronunciation and appropriacy of every English word that they learn. I then help them to strengthen their knowledge by giving them a variety of texts and videos to listen and read, making sure they are interested and challenged while using all of their skills.
I am recently graduated from CELTA, so I know lots of techniques and methods to help you learn English! I have also been an English Teacher for five years, in both England and Spain, to students of any age from 3 to 70!
Kumon Teaching Assistant (October 2014 – October 2018)
My role at Kumon is to assist children with their maths and English work, as well as marking and recording their progress. The job requires expression, understanding and knowledge of the work the children do and I enjoy my role very much. It also requires a lot of diligence and persistence as the students can often struggle with many types of work and we have to adapt to be able to help each student. I also began to privately tutor the Kumon Instructor’s daughter in Spanish in 2017, in order to prepare her for her GCSEs. Both activities have been beneficial to my understanding of teaching languages primarily to non-native students.
Au Pair – Alcorcón, Madrid (October 2018 – Present Day)
In my gap year, I made the decision to improve on my teaching experience by moving to Madrid to teach English to Spanish-speaking children and adults. In my particular job here as an Au Pair, I give grammar classes to my 2 students (whose family I stay with) and communicate to them all exclusively in English, sometimes giving Business English classes to the parents as they at times can need additional support in English for work. On top of this, I also give the extended family private English classes which take a similar set-up. I find this job to be very gratifying as it makes you more aware of common issues that Spanish-speaking English learners face and encourages you to be creative and devise methods to overcome students’ issues with difficult English grammar.
Shadowing – Sheffield City Council, Information Department (August 2017)
Over the summer, I had a work placement in the Sheffield City Council’s Information Management department, in such a time where GDPR (the EU law replacing the Data Protection Act) was becoming increasingly relevant, I attended some of the first meetings that the Information department held in other parts of the Council to help and explain the functions of the new legislation and how prior arrangements for the dealing of information would need to change to suit it.

I am punctual and am able to keep time well
