English Tutor avaiable
Experience: 2 years
Hello, my name is Thomas and I am a native English speaker from Ireland. I come from Dublin but I am currently living in Dortmund, Germany.
I am an experienced English Teacher and certified by CELTA. I can teach you with a planned curriculum which includes vocabulary, grammar, listening, reading and writing exercises or you can set your own pace. Either way I will prepare your own individual lesson plan which includes setting specific English learning tasks. I believe that teaching is like a journey and my aim is to plan with you where you want to go and take you to your destination.
I have helped students with general English conversation skills to more comprehensive grammar structures. I believe that students learn by listening and speaking and that enough practice and honest feedback from your tutor is very important. I feel it is necessary for students to have the right pronunciation and meaning of a word.
I can help students with presentations, CVs, and job interview skills. You can discuss and choose with me the context you wish to learn in and we can draw up a needs assessment together.
I enjoy learning and studying. I returned to college as a mature student for six years and gained a BA in Sociology/Anthropology, a higher diploma in Social Policy and a MA in Social Work. My background before college was in Finance, Administration an Retail Management. For the last 2 years I have been working full time as a Social Worker in Ireland with children and adults of all ages and cultures. I am currently learning German so I can understand how difficult it is to learn a language and believe that a good tutor should possess good listening skills, empathy and patience. I am passionate about teaching so let me guide you step by step in achieving your goal towards English fluency.
