Teaching English as a Foreign Language
Information about Sue
Since 2010 I have been teaching English and English for Maths as well as other subjects mentioned below. I have taught from primary age to Adult supporting children to develop confidence and excel at school and supporting adults adjusting to life in a new country. My teaching has included online teaching since March 2020.
Trained in Fine Art and French with Spanish and Brazilian I have worked at a high level where languages are concerned. This includes the rare bonus of being able to book art lessons through the medium of French or Spanish!
Also my experience extends to writing, proofreading and copy-editing. I have a lot of experience therefore across registers and genres. I have volunteered as a translator on the Polyglot website since 2008.
I have recently refreshed my practise by training in TEFL and TESOL experience and during my time working in education I had Special Needs and mainstream experience from 3 to 18. I have two Level 3 qualifications in Teaching and Learning and Childhood Development.
Above all I am a people person excited by learning and teaching languages. I realise what the best strategies are from my experience learning approximately eight languages - I am regularly embarking on a new venture - so am well equipped to support others.
I have an enhanced DBS on the update service and the `Bulletin numero 3` French equivalent.
