Hi, I´m Jessie. I come from Ireland, but these days I live in Spain. I have been teaching for just over 10 years. In that time, I have taught in the UK, Ireland and Spain. In the UK and Ireland, my students were from all over the world including South America, the Middle East, Asia etc. Since relocating to Spain, most of the students I work with are Spanish though I do have some students from other European countries.
I have learnt a lot from my students about the problems they face when trying to improve their English and I think I have developed a good understanding of what is needed to be a successful language learner. And of course, as a language learner myself, I am very familiar with the frustrations that come with learning and trying to master a new language.
I also have experience preparing students for English language exams including Cambridge PET, B2 First and Advanced/CAE as well as Trinity ISE exams and IELTS.
The most important thing for me is developing lessons around the individual. Not only do students have different goals but they often also have approaches to learning. I like to learn more about you so I can design lessons that keep you interested and motivated. I think it is important that we work together to set out realistic targets for you to achieve so we can measure the success of the programme.
