Vicki K. Tutor Profile
Hi, my name is Vicki and I'm a TEFL certified native English teacher. I teach students aged 17+ of all levels. I quaified and lived in Spain for 18 months: Madrid and Zaragoza, working as a teacher within language academies and as a freelance tutor with students whose language abilities were at varying levels.
My speciality is Business: work, career change, interviews and conversation for improvement and confidence. I have successfully assisted students pass their Cambridge FCE and CAE exams, and seen students gain confidence in presentation and/or communication with English colleagues etc. I continue to assist office professionals, who include a media business owner and the Spanish Civil Guard. My experience also includes assistance with IELTS.
Before being a teacher, I worked as a legal secretary for 16 years but also enjoyed various other roles prior to this: in office, leisure and hospitality. In my spare time I have many interests including photography, music, writing and wellbeing/meditation. In addition to this I really love to travel and have visited Japan: Tokyo, Miyajima and Takayama, as well as Europe namely Cyprus, Spain, Italy and Malta.
I really enjoy teaching English because I get to meet people from other countries and cultures; explore interested and new topics, but most of all help students reach their language goals both personally and in terms of exams or work. Being able to share my students experiences and successes, and offer support is my motivation. My lessons are focused on your needs and interests and are conducted in a friendly, mature and professional manner. As my student you should expect to practice talking and reading - both of which help the overall skills and confidence to reach your goals. For those who want additional practice, we can also agree homework.
I thank you for looking at my profile and I look forward to meeting you on Skype.
