About Me

Multilingual, Creative, Flexible, Patient, Sociable, Enthusiastic, Dynamic, Hardworking



Originally, I decided to take a Masters in English Literature to teach English in Luxembourg, my hometown. However, now that I have the relevant academic and practical qualifications I want to develop my teaching career here in England. I have been working as a teaching assistant and as a teacher of English and French as foreign languages since 2010 in various schools in both Luxembourg and London. Teaching and studying languages in different countries has given me an opportunity to discover a range of different learning and teaching environments.

I have a CELTA certificate (Pass B) and an MA in English Literature completed at Kingston University London. I also have an MA in Multilingual Communications from the ‘Université Libre de Bruxelles’ in Brussels and a BA in Modern Languages (English/Spanish).

I have taught both English and French as foreign languages. At Language.lu in Luxembourg, I was responsible for establishing the weekly educational programme for the students who usually attended an intensive 1 week course. At Aline Mayrisch high school in Luxembourg, I team-taught English to students aged 15/16 years for an English option class. I established the programme and evaluated the students at the end of the year.

I have studied and speak 5 foreign languages fluently, and therefore understand what it takes to learn a foreign language. I love teaching. I believe I am a patient, creative and hard working person; qualities which I think are important to be a good teacher. I am motivated and reliable and I always do my best to use the skills I have acquired in order to meet the needs of the students I work with.

I am a tutor of Italian and English as a foreign/second language. I had the opportunity to teach in different contexts with multicultural groups of students from many countries and backgrounds. I am currently teaching Italian to individual students and corporate clients with different language requirements and purposes. I have also conducted a preparation course for Italian GCSE and A level exams in London. I teach to all levels and ages using a communicative and student-centred approach. My lessons are very interactive and focused on real life and cultural situations. I care about my students’ learning progress and achievements and I am keen to guide them in a friendly, dedicated and respectful manner. Moreover, one of my main goals as a teacher is to enable my students to enjoy the experience of communicating, thinking and reacting in a foreign language.

Carina
French from non-native fluent speaker (Learn from someone who learned the language myself :)
How will a native speaker understand the struggles of learning their own native language? How will they know what's the most difficult thing about their mother tongue? Stop signing up with native French speakers and learn from a person who speaks French fluently after having studied it from primary school all the way through to my professional career.

EFL classes for all levels from a CELTA certified teacher, conversation classes for Spanish beginners/intermediate
My name is Sophie, I am a Hispanic studies graduate with three years experience teaching EFL. Previously I have worked in a UK based FE institute delivering English classes and assignment support. However the majority of my teaching experience was gained in Spain, most recently working in an academy for teenagers and adults. I also have experience working in two primary schools, teaching a classroom of English teachers and providing guided tuition to students aged 7-24. As such my content was extremely varied and highly specified to the students individuals needs and goals. In March 2017 I completed my CELTA , achieving a PASS B grade. ​I have a true passion for teaching English to foreign students, arming them with the necessary tools to thrive in a multitude of environments.
