Qualified Online TEFL Tutor in Southport area Offering Lessons For Written and Spoken English.

Methodology

I am a friendly and patient tutor, who likes to have input from the students when planning lessons in order to ensure their learning needs are addressed. My lessons are structured so that the students are engaged throughout. This could involve using games or introducing question and answer props, depending on the level of tutoring the students require. At the end of each lesson feedback is a helpful tool to be used, and suggestions should be viewed constructively.

Background

I have been qualified to teach English (TEFL) since 2013, and have had the privilege to teach a number of Filipino students prior to them embarking on careers in nursing. I did not charge for these lessons as the experience in teaching was invaluable.
I also have several teaching qualifications and am qualified to tutor children from a young age, having diploma qualifications to support this.
I have current experience in tutoring young children of primary school age, and take pleasure in watching them reach their full potential.

Lorraine's CV

LORRAINE HARDMAN

NATIONALITY BRITISH


PERSONAL STATEMENT


FOLLOWING MY EARLY RETIREMENT FROM THE CIVIL SERVICE AFTER THIRTY FIVE YEARS, I DECIDED TO TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RE -EVALUATE MY ASPIRATIONS, AND TO STRIVE TO EMBARK UPON A LEARNING CURVE WHICH WOULD LEAD TO A NEW CAREER OPPORTUNITY WITHIN THE WIDER EDUCATION FIELD.
MY NICHE SOON BECAME CLEAR WHEN I VOLUNTEERED TO TUTOR FILIPINO MEDICAL STUDENTS ON A VOLUNTARY AD HOC BASIS, HELPING THEM WITH THEIR ENGLISH SPEAKING AND WRITING SKILLS. THIS WAS REWARDING TO BOTH MYSELF AS I REALISED THAT TUTORING WAS MY FORTE, AND TO THE STUDENTS WHO FOUND IT EASIER TO INTEGRATE INTO THE HOSPITAL SETTING AND OVERCOME THE LANGUAGE BARRIERS. IN RETURN, THEY DID NOT HESITATE IN REFERRING THEIR COLLEAGUES TO ME FOR TUITION.
I EXPLORED THE PATHWAYS TO PROGRESS INTO THE TEACHING SPHERE, AND AM NOW A FULLY QUALIFIED TEFL/TESL TUTOR (MASTERS GRADE A) CERTIFIED, AND HAVE ATTAINED MY LIFE COACHING DIPLOMA WITH CPD ACCREDITATION.
MY AIM NOW IS TO USE MY ACQUIRED SKILLS TO TUTOR STUDENTS WHO WISH TO LEARN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, EMPOWERING THEM TO BECOME PROFICIENT IN THEIR WRITTEN AND SPOKEN WORK.
