English Second Language Teacher (Native UK) with Honours Degree in Language and Linguistics

Hello! I'm Miya, a languages graduate (Spanish, French, Italian, English) and I love learning languages, so I understand first-hand how challenging it can be to learn and practise speaking a new language.

Classes can be:
- speaking only: practising getting comfortable speaking English with a native
- grammar based: doing exercises and translations
- from beginner to advanced levels of English

I have experience teaching English in language academies to people of all ages and abilities. I teach Cambridge, Trinity and EOI exams, as well as group child classes.

I am open to doing classes online (via Zoom or Skype) and we can meet at an agreed location in the city.

About Me

I am an energetic and fun 23-year-old from the UK. I am an English second language teacher in Valencia and have been living here for about a year. I studied languages at university and I love to learn about language and how it differs. For this reason, I love to teach others English and how it differs from their native language.

I love when my students ask me questions. Anything! It can be something grammar-specific, and if I don't know the answer, I will go and find out and get back to you with the answer!

Kids that love to learn and love to try out new things make teaching extremely worthwhile. Getting students comfortable speaking lets them improve at a much faster rate so I encourage speaking in my classes and active participation.

I teach using various methods: learning through games is always fun and lets younger students gain confidence in a second language. With adults, I prefer to use exercises based around grammar and translation. However, I teach adults that only wish to learn through speaking, and they like when I correct their mistakes as they speak.

Education

First Class (Honours) Bachelors Degree: Modern Languages and Linguistics from Newcastle University.
Spanish, French, Italian Language.
Linguistics (Philology) in English, Spanish, French

Experience / Qualifications

1 year teaching ESL in private language academies. Cambridge, Trinity, EOI exam boards.

Studying foreign languages is not always easy and less if you do not know the culture of the country. In my Spanish classes I will be able to offer you all my knowledge about the language (grammar, vocabulary, syntax, etc.) but I can also help you in literature or cultural aspects. We can also do conversation classes. I adapt to your needs. You explain what you want us to focus on and I will help you in the most dynamic way possible.

Joanne
Experienced Tutor and Teacher - British National Curriculum
I am an experienced primary school teacher of 12 years and a mother. I have taught in a wide range of different schools including international schools in Dubai, Germany, and Spain, and many inner-city schools in and around Liverpool. I particularly enjoy teaching maths and utilize a plethora of different creative techniques in order to instill both a love of learning and a clear, confident understanding of the subject. I quickly develop strong relationships with children as I am excellent at gauging them and their specific needs. I love talking to children in order to fully understand them and decide on the most appropriate methods to use with them. I like to provide children with a number of mathematical methods for working out a specific problem so that they are not reliant on one method alone and I find that this also helps to build their confidence. Obviously, I also greatly enjoy teaching reading and writing as English is my native language. I am highly effective at ensuring progress and advancing students' confidence and ability. I have worked in reception, year 1, year 3, year 4, and year 6 so almost the full spectrum! I have tutored children in all year groups and have 3 years experience of in tutoring. I also have experience teaching EAL children in the UAE, the U.K., and Germany and a variety of SEN children.

The modules are different depending on the level of the student. The classes are prepared and their contents planned to follow an evolution in the learning of the Spanish language. On the contrary, it is also possible to adapt the classes to the needs of the student, creating the content of greatest interest to him.

ENGLISH CLASSES TAUGHT BY NATIVE PROFESSIONAL PASSIONATE ABOUT HER WORK
When I plan an English class, I stick to the syllabus while, at the same time, incorporating my own exercises and activities to give students the opportunity to express themselves and consolidate their understanding. I put a lot of emphasis on communication as I believe that tutoring is not just talking at the student, but rather a two-way discussion. To this end, I use activities such as debates, roleplays and simulated interviews to show students real-life, practical situations to the theory taught in class. In terms of teaching English, my objective is to make grammar and vocabulary dynamic and interesting by presenting and discussing examples of possible situations which will facilitate comprehension.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** 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: => 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.
