Hi, my name is Jamie, I'm from London and I am an English and German teacher! I have been teaching conversational English and German since 2016. In that time, I have taught a range of classes in a range of settings, from conversation classes in a cafe-style atmosphere to business German/English classes in companies. I have taught in both Spain and the UK.
I like to have more informal classes in order to create a comfortable environment where students feel more comfortable speaking. I also like to teaching using audiovisual materials, such as with music. I belief is that students who are interested will be more engaged to learn and will enjoy doing it! It won't be a chore, but rather something that students look forward to. While I personally don't like giving homework (I understand that everyone is busy), I do have materials that students can look over, fill out and submit back to me if that is desired. I also prefer to have conversations with my students where possible, meaning that the students talk as much or more than I do, when possible (naturally this can be a bit hard with grammar!)
In addition to my teaching experience, I also have a scientific/technical background with degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biological Sciences. I also used to work as an engineer for a biomedical company that specialised in neurosurgical devices, so if you are interested in learning about more scientific or technical fields in English, or would like to learn the language using scientific-based materials, get in touch!
I really love teaching, travelling and translating! I am an avid reader, a bit of an adventurer, and I enjoy being very social, including going out at night. I also like to learn something from my students, so let's get in touch!
