I’m an enthusiastic, creative and committed teacher with a wealth of experience having taught adults at all levels since 2000 and children 7-18 for the past eleven years.
My teaching style is firm but fair.
I acquired, through experience, the ability to make languages accessible to students with diverse needs by creating an active, stimulating learning environment and differentiating by task and outcome. Therefore, I can easily identify what the individual student needs and tailor lessons to meet those needs.
I incorporate a wide variety of materials to keep students fully engaged in the grammar and the culture of the target language, such as visual power points, games, songs, interactive websites and video clips.
I have a TEFL Certificate and have worked with EAL students in schools.
Our daughter recently started Spanish lessons with Ada in preparation for her GCSEs later this year. She attends lessons with a friend of similar ability and has made great progress already. Lessons with Ada are well structured and focused but are fun too as she uses a range of activities – the hour literally flies by! Ada has provided such a big confidence boost and has helped in the preparation for oral exams. As a native Spanish speaker, Ada has improved their listening and speaking skills and also reinforced the amount of vocabulary required. We are delighted to have found Ada and highly recommend her.
In the short time my daughter has been tutored in Spanish, I have seen a tremendous improvement in her confidence and subject knowledge. We are very grateful to Ada and would recommend her without hesitation.
