Qualified teacher of over 17 years tutoring engaging English, sociology, psychology and SEN lessons

I have always had a passion for education. This has left me in good stead to become a dedicated teacher driven to inspire students to achieve personal academic success.

I specialise in English, Health and Social Care, Sociology, Psychology and Special Educational Needs.

My particular strengths are an ability to work to pressurised deadlines and be flexible. I have a mature and conscientious teaching approach, which allows me to be innovative within the classroom. I believe in using various approaches to teaching, which facilitate the active participation of students and involve them fully in their group and individual learning. I have further enhanced my own capabilities as an educational practitioner and have grown and evolved considerably and have been graded 1 in lesson observations.
Having moved from mainstream teaching to special needs, has enabled me to expand my skills and depth of knowledge within this area. Working with small groups and on a one-to-one basis has greatly emphasised the need for individual learning plans and the need for flexibility.

During my teaching career, I have been involved in the training of trainee teachers. In each case, acting as a mentor and helping to support the development of skills of teaching and learning practice, whilst on placement. This experience also helped to develop my own teaching as it enabled the sharing of new ideas and good practice.

LIENZOS DEL SER: Clase 1 Comprendiendo la Arteterapia y Elaboración del primer Lienzo de vida.
"Mis clases de arteterapia son un espacio seguro y acogedor donde podrás explorar tu creatividad y descubrir nuevas formas de expresión. Las llamo "Lienzos del ser" y a través de diversas técnicas artísticas, como la pintura, el dibujo, el collage y la escultura, te invitaré a sumergirte en un viaje de autoconocimiento y sanación emocional. En un ambiente relajado y sin juicios, te guiaré para que puedas canalizar tus emociones, pensamientos y experiencias de vida en obras de arte únicas y llenas de significado personal. Cada sesión será una oportunidad para dejar fluir tu imaginación, liberar tensiones y encontrar nuevas perspectivas. No se requiere experiencia previa en arte, ya que el enfoque principal es el proceso creativo y la expresión auténtica. Aprenderemos juntos técnicas básicas, pero lo más importante será el viaje interior que emprenderemos a través del arte. Estas sesiones son ideales para aquellos que buscan una forma terapéutica y enriquecedora de manejar el estrés, superar desafíos emocionales, aumentar la autoestima y descubrir nuevas facetas de sí mismos. Serán un oasis de tranquilidad y crecimiento personal en un mundo ajetreado. Te invito a unirte a este maravilloso viaje de sanación y autodescubrimiento a través del poder transformador del arte. ¡Prepárate para sorprenderte con tus propias creaciones y para conectar con tu ser interior de una manera profunda y reveladora!" Como futuro participante de mis sesiones de trabajo te indico algunas de las informaciones adicionales que debes tener en cuenta, asegúrate de leerlas con calma y ver si resuenan contigo. 1) Disposición para explorar y expresarse: El arteterapia implica abrirse a nuevas experiencias y permitir que las emociones fluyan a través del proceso creativo. Te pido como participante que vengas con una mentalidad abierta y sin miedo a realizar toda clases de actividades, eres un gran artista y no quiero dudad al respecto :D 2) Respeto y confidencialidad: Dado que se trabajará con temas personales y emocionales, es importante establecer un ambiente de respeto mutuo y confidencialidad, y espero mantengas la privacidad de lo compartido durante las sesiones y si deseas que alguien te acompañe me puedes hacer la salvedad antes de comenzar. 3)Compromiso y asistencia regular: El arteterapia es un proceso gradual, por lo que se recomienda un compromiso de asistencia regular a las sesiones para obtener los mejores resultados. Lo ideal es que completes las ocho sesiones iniciales que manejan el aspecto de la Autoconfianza. Pero siempre será tu decisión lo que realmente valga. 4)Materiales básicos: Estas sesiones requieren de elementos básicos como un cuaderno de bocetos, lápices, tijeras, crayones, acuarelas, pinceles, recortes, madejas de hilos de colores, crayones pasteles y todo lo que se te ocurra y permita que tu creatividad fluya. 5) Ropa cómoda: Durante las sesiones es necesario que te desprendas de toda rigidez, es por eso que lo ideal es que tengas la ropa mas cómoda posible y que no tengas el riesgo de daño si surgiera alguna salpicadura. Anímate a ser el mejor artista. El ilustrador de tu nueva forma de ver la vida.

Tiffany
English tutoring with native speaker for all levels
Hello, I'm Tiffany! I've been teaching English for about 8 years now. It all started after I left the US to live abroad and has evolved in all types of ways. My approach is nothing pushy, I work with my students to see how they want lessons to go. I encourage my students to work on all points of language not just speaking. So some lessons can be grammar heavy, others we may focus on a light conversation because sometimes we just want to enjoy ourselves! Feedback is given and if it fits for the student homework is always available. *General English Lessons* We'll focus on all skills in these lessons! We'll read short articles, reviews and social media posts... These could be scientific or magazine articles. We'll listen and watch videos on interesting topics, learn different dialects and new words. I also use podcasts to hear how native language sounds in conversation. Grammar will also be a key element of our lessons. We'll analyze the most difficult areas, expanding your grammatical range. Writing is also important. We can look at how to write an email for work, an essay or even a simple sms. And, of course, speaking. We'll focus on your fluency and coherence, as well as expanding your vocabulary. Our topics can range from the pros and cons of living in a city to the future of life on Mars. I work on an interactive platform. You'll also have access to everything we work on during and after lessons on the platform.
