I am a British native speaker from the U.K. with an easy to understand neutral accent .I have a PGCE in primary education holding qualified teacher status and have taught a whole range of ages from kindergarten to teens. I have over 5 years of teaching experience both nationally and internationally in schools and international colleges. I also hold an Oxbridge Bachelor degree and a TOEFL certificate allowing me to teach English as a foreign language to adults and children and have approximately 3 years of teaching ESL online to both children, teens and adults from varying backgrounds, cultures and levels.
I am familiar with teaching adults business English from a variety of professional backgrounds as well as to students who wish to improve themselves and practice everyday conversational English . I also have the knowledge and skills of preparing students for their IELTS examinations, interviews for jobs/universities etc.
I have a lot of experiences of with teaching 1:1 as well in groups and my approach is interactive, engaging and creative especially with children.
My main focus as a teacher is to meet my students exactly where they are and I like to get to know them to personalise their classes and cater to their learning needs . I recognise the importance of clear and straightforward explanations where students participate actively. I am patient allowing my students time to think about what they want to say and how they want to say it.
I offer feedback and correction as progressive to learning and motivate my students by using a variety of different resources where appropriate such as visual aids etc.
My passion is teaching and I love to engage and motivate students in meaningful conversation which can be applied to real life context. It is crucial to me as a teacher that my students are enjoying classes with me and feel that they are making progress.
I am dedicated to my students and wish to encourage and inspire the endless possibilities that open up when we speak another language which invariably enrich our life experiences.
I look forward to meeting my prospective students and getting to know you to help you to fulfil your true potential and reach your goals as successful language learners ! Teresa
