About Me

I completed a Degree in English Language and Literature in 2004. As part of my degree I had to study subjects such as Linguistics and units that studied writers such as Dickens and Shakespeare. Within the optional units that I chose to follow I studied a range of writers from Djuna Barnes to William Wordsworth and for the English Language part of my degree and I chose to complete units in subjects such as Teaching English as a Foreign Language and the Language of the Media. I enjoyed completing my degree and I feel that it allowed me to develop good oral and written communication skills and gave me a thorough and varied understanding of English Language and Literature.

After I completed my degree I worked for a few years and I decided to begin a Teacher Training course due to a long-standing interest that I had in building a career as a Teacher. I chose to complete my Teacher Training on a part-time basis through Weymouth College so that I was able to work whilst I was studying. Through my Teacher Training I learnt skills such as how to use ICT to advance the teaching and learning of students and of the importance of having a high level of organisation when teaching. Whilst completing my training I worked for HMP the Verne as a Supply Teacher on an as and when basis. Due to the environment that I was working in at HMP the Verne, I had to have a personal conviction when teaching the students and I had to recognise how to develop potential in others. When I was working at HMP the Verne I was employed by HMP the Verne and Strode College and I completed training activities through both organisations. For instance, as I was working in a prison I completed training on how to work safely in that environment and I completed courses that helped me stay up to date with relevant educational issues.

Since completing my teacher training I have worked for Language Schools in temporary roles, and I have worked for Teaching Agencies. When working for Language Schools I have had to complete additional language training in relation to teaching English as a Foreign Language. When working for Teaching Agencies I have also completed additional training such as safeguarding courses, which have taught me the importance of promoting and safeguarding the welfare of the students I am teaching, and I also completed a Team Teach course.

I feel that my experiences of working for the Language Schools English First and English 2000 allowed me to make good use of the knowledge that I gained through studying English Language and Linguistics whilst at University. For instance, as ESOL classes involve teaching the students a lot of grammar, when teaching this subject I was able to make good use of the varied knowledge of English grammar that I gained through studying Linguistics. As I often shared classes with other teachers whilst working for Language Schools, I had to work well as part of a team.

I currently work for Budmouth as a Cover Supervisor. I feel that my job at Budmouth has allowed to gain a good knowledge of the school. I have also completed CPD courses through Budmouth, which have helped me to improve as a Teacher. I have covered English classes in my current role and this has allowed me to gain knowledge of the topics that are covered in the English Department. For instance, I understand that the students study texts such as “Lord of the Flies” and writers such as Shakespeare. As I cover classes at Budmouth, I have to use my initiative when teaching and have respect for the staff that I am working with.

I am also currently working for a company that provides support staff for University students that have additional learning needs. I work as a Study Skills Support Tutor for a company called First Class Support and within my role I help students improve their study skills in any area that they feel they need help and particularly in improving their writing skills. I feel that working for First Class Support has helped me to improve as a teacher as I am supporting University students that are working at a higher level than the students in the classes that I normally cover.

Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

Mark
Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 24 years of experience.
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

Valentin
ENGLISH course - become fluent in English, communicate in English without prejudice
Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.
