After passing my TESOL course I started teaching English privately to au pairs and other students who have relocated due to differing circumstances.This has enabled me to build up some useful experience and a variety of materials for their different levels. Also from teaching different nationalities I've been able to acquire a good knowledge of other cultures and problems encountered when learning another language. As I learn Spanish I'm also aware of the difficulties that a student can have and the constant challenges and motivation needed to continue. When teaching I always try to be flexible and keep my lessons as interesting and stimulating as possible to meet the needs of the individual. As I work part time with young children I also have a unique opportunity to be involved in some of their learning, which is also very rewarding.
