Hello! My name is Nancy and I am a primary teaching assistant working full time at a school in Hackney. I have studied at King`s College London for a BA in French and Hispanic Studies at King`s College London. I have been tutoring students of all ages in French, Spanish, and English as a foreign language for 6 years both as preparation for exams or as conversational practice and have found it both enjoyable and rewarding. I like to teach in a friendly, informal setting and am able to adjust my teaching methods to your needs and preferences. I am familiar with the GCSE and A-Level syllabus for English (both Language and Literature), French and Spanish, as well as the primary syllabus for all subjects.
I am also more than happy to proofread your work for spelling, grammar and general flow in English, and am happy to work with you online via Skype or email.
As I work in a primary school, I have a full enhanced DBS check which clears me to work with children.
I am available to teach in your home or in a public place (coffee shops have always worked well!). I will always ask to meet in public at least initially in the interest of safety - please don`t take this personally!
I look forward to meeting you!
Availability: Monday - Thursday 4.30pm onwards (depending on location)
Saturday - Sunday mornings
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have taught a number of students of a range of ages over the past few years and have had good success in building confidence and raising exam grades. In the past I have worked as a foreign language assistant at a large Manchester college, taking small conversation classes and assisting with written work and grammar. I also spent two months in France 4 years ago teaching English to a 3 year old girl! I am currently working as a general teaching assistant in a year 3 class in a primary school in Hackney, gaining experience before beginning a PGCE. In my role I work closely with children from a range of backgrounds and with varied attainment levels, including children whose first language is not English and who have special educational needs (SEN).
