Early Stages Teacher Stagecoach StourbridgeI worked as a teacher for children aged 4-7, spending our time together learning how to perform scripts, learn dances and bring life to music. As all of the children were at a key age for English speaking skills to develop, I would often work with them to improve pronunciation and learn new words whenever they came up! I would also have to create fun, varied and engaging lessons so that they never felt as though they were bored or 'at school'. I will use these skills while teaching with iTalki.

Teaching Assistant Stagecoach HalesowenI spent four years teaching children from the ages of 4-18 in singing, dancing and acting. As I was still young when I first took on the role, I learned how to teach on the job. I started off by supervising the children while the other teachers took a class, and then progressed into holding classes of my own and directing performances to be put on at the end of term. This is where I learned how to engage a class, how to speak to students and how to keep calm under pressure.

English Teacher Private TutorIn the years after completing my own GCSE exams and achieving the highest possible grades (A*'s), I decided to spend some time delivering private tutoring to those taking the same exams. I worked with students to master the English language and to use words in the most effective and powerful way.
