About me

Hello, My name is Lauren and I have considerable amount of experience teaching English as a foreign language as well as Spanish.I am a native English speaker and first studied English at school in England. I started teaching English as a foreign language in a school in Bolivia back in 2001 and taught there for over seven months during my gap year. I then went on to volunteer at language schools in Reading, Bath and Bristol. In 2014 I studied at City of Bristol College for a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) awarded by Cambridge University and then in February 2015 I started teaching English at a language school in Swindon, UK. I have taught classes ranging from elementary to advanced and private classes and am comfortable teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. I am patient, kind and approachable and try to always tailor lessons to students requirements and needs.

I first started studying Spanish when I was 12 at school and went on to study Spanish at college and university. I was awarded a first class honours degree in Spanish and Italian from Exeter University with distinction in spoken Spanish and Italian. I have worked as a Spanish tutor since June 2013 and have taught Students as young as 7 and adult learners as well. As well as living in Bolivia I have also lived in Italy and Spain and love different cultures and learning new languages.

Teaching Approach

I always try to be approachable, kind and considerate when I teach. I listen well to my students and ask for feedback on lessons. I try to make lessons varied and interesting and practice the four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. I try to reduce teacher talk and let students speak as much as possible. I put an emphasis on fluency and conversational skills and on having fun in lessons as much as possible. I help my students to feel more confident in using their new language, particularly in everyday situations. I try to teach functional and practical language as much as possible as well as idioms and more complex words and phrases.

About me

Hola me llamo Lauren y tengo mucha experiencia en enseñar el inglés como lingua extranjera. Aprendí el inglés primero en la escuela y el instituto y cuando tenía 18 años fui a enseñar el inglés en una escuela y instituto en Bolivia. Enseñé allí más de siete meses a nivel primario y secundario.

Después de terminar los estudios en la Universidad y trabajar como traductora unos años fui voluntaria en escuelas de idiomas en Reading, Bath y Bristol. Luego en 2014 estudié en Bristol para ser profesora de inglés haciendo el certificado CELTA (Certificado en Enseñar el Idioma Inglés a Adultos) que fue otorgado por la Universidad de Cambridge.

En febrero de 2015 empecé a trabajar como profesora de inglés en una escuela de idiomas en Swindon y tengo experiencia en enseñar a todos niveles desde elemental hasta avanzado. Soy muy paciente y tranquila y siempre intento ser accesible.

Desde junio de 2013 trabajo como tutora de español y enseño a estudiantes desde la edad de siete años tanto como adultos.

Teaching Approach

Siempre intento ser paciente y flexible y procuro escuchar bien a mis estudiantes. Tengo siempre en cuenta las necesidades y requerimientos de mis estudiantes y escucho comentarios pues siempre busco mejorar mis clases.

Enseño las cuatro habilidades de escuchar, leer, escribir y hablar pero pongo énfasis en hablar correctamente y con fluidez. Intento enseñar el lenguaje útil y functional tal como modismos y lenguaje más avanzado cuando sea pronto el estudiante.

Quiero que mis estudiantes se diviertan mientras aprenden y por lo tanto uso actividades divertidas e interesantes. Por supuesto enseño la gramática también de forma comprensible.
