Skills and Interests



Willing to adapt to meet the needs and demands of the workplace. Able to think on my feet and respond well to new situations and changes. 


Travelling is a great passion of mine and I love to immerse myself in new cultures. I have used many experiences in my teaching such as teaching about Islam using resources from Dubai and Abu Dhabi.


I am very confident at using a range of Windows and Adobe programs, including Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Movie Maker. I have had experience of using iPads and iMacs.


Through specialising in Modern Foreign Languages I am very confident and passionate about teaching MFL. I have basic knowledge of French, Spanish and Mandarin and I have studied German up to GCSE level. My recent experience of working with ESL learners both in my current class and in private tutoring lessons has greatly improved my confidence and passion for teaching English as a foreign language.

Strong ability to work in a team

I am very much a team player and throughout my work experiences and current job I have demonstrated my ability to develop effective, professional relationships with colleagues and communicate with children, parents and colleagues well.
