AboutKirsty

With an outstanding background as a professional teacher with over 9.5 years of teaching experience, I bring both passion and expertise to help each student build their skills and confidence and therefore achieve their goals!  I teach all ages and abilities.

 

Learning should be fun and enjoyable! My teaching approach is adapted to suit the age, ability, aims and interests of the individual student. I use a variety of resources including games, videos, exercises, flashcards, actions, sounds, conversation ...

Personal Introduction

I am 33 years old and live in Manchester, England. I have completed an MSc in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship from Manchester University.

 

I enjoy watching films, listening to music and reading books. I like playing hockey, cycling and going swimming. Also, I love learning about people and cultures.

 

Experience

Since June 2012 I have been tutoring many nationalities online and face-to-face.  I teach English and to students of all ages and abilities, both online and face-to-face, and I am really enjoying helping my tutees achieve their dreams. 

 

From 2009 to 2011, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to teach college students in Guangzhou, China.  I taught English and business and my students then went on to study degrees at universities all over the world.

 

Education

In April 2014, I completed my Masters in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship at Manchester University, England and have achieved a 2:1 in Business Management from Newcastle University, England.  I went to a highly prestigious school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I received six Highers (2 As, 3 Bs and a C) and ten GCSEs (8 As and 2 Cs).
