Most enjoys being a teacher because: “I am excited to see the progress of my students and share their enthusiasm when they learn something new or understand a concept. I enjoy communicating with students from many different backgrounds, with varying abilities and personalities, through learning Japanese.”

Language taught: Spanish

Most enjoys being a teacher because: “I always have in my mind that the process of teaching and learning a language is like the construction of a building. At the beginning it is slow and challenging, but at the same time it is important to create a good foundation. Later it becomes more and more enjoyable.”
Top language tip: There is no single ‘correct’ way of learning as every student is different and they will always find which strategies work better for them. However, I always encourage students to be consistent and committed, as if you can dedicate a few minutes a day, every day, you will be far more successful than if you spend one or two hours studying, but only sporadically.
Languages taught: German and English
Companies trained: Paxton Access
Most enjoys being a teacher because: “I enjoy working with both individuals and groups – either having the dynamic of a group or the advantage of tuning in to what an individual wants and needs. As a teacher I can draw on my strengths such as differentiating between what is important and what is not; giving as much input as necessary, and leaving as much space for students as possible.”
Top language tips: Find a time slot every day, if only for 10 minutes, and allow yourself to make mistakes when speaking.
