I love teaching and especially private tutoring as it gives me the possibility to invest more and focus more on fewer students at a time. I have several years of experience in tutoring/teaching foreign languages (French, Spanish and ESL), English grammar and writing. Most of my tutoring/teaching has been done in Europe and Africa. I have taught in private, small groups; I've taught preschool, primary school, high school and I also taught at University, MA level. I have experience as well in teaching adults and seniors.
I have studied child psychology and I have thoroughly studied and research many teaching methodologies (including my final BA thesis/dissertation which was in teaching methodology). After several years of trying different methods I now use just a few teaching approaches although most of the time it is a creative combination of several. I use the Natural Approach, the Communicative Language Teaching Approach and Total Physical Response all combined, at times, with Audio-visual aids. But, most important, when I teach, I look at each individual and his/her specific needs and learning abilities and I focus on those and using those I bring out the best of each student.
I have a BA in foreign languages (ESL included) and a Master in linguistics and theology. I have a college diploma in theology and another one in cross-cultural studies. I have worked almost 3 years as a linguist in Africa.
I love sharing my skills and knowledge with my students, I love to see them grow and improve and along the way I enjoy learning and improving myself.
