Sheelagh D

I was born in the romantic sounding Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland but moved with my parents, older brother and sister to London when I was a baby. At the age of ten we moved country again, this time to Wales, the land of poets where I grew to adulthood in a tiny Welsh village. I studied English Literature at the University of Cardiff and moved to London in my early twenties to seek my fortune in the publishing industry. After working for various publishing houses, I edited a magazine for a national charity.

I married and have a family of three children, all grown up. My son and one daughter are engineers and my other daughter works in international planning. Whilst at home I retrained as an EFL Teacher back in 1994 and became a Homestay teacher. I enjoyed this for several years while my family were growing up and then worked as an EFL Specialist Teacher in a London Secondary School where I taught English Language to teenagers. I studied for a Masters in Sociolinguistics in 2008 to 2010 and a PGCE in 2012. Presently, I work as an EFL Lecturer at a College of Further Education and last year I started to teach Homestay courses again.

I have recently started to teach classes online and I am looking to develop this further. When I am not teaching I play a lot of tennis, I go cycling round the London parks and tow paths and I practise yoga regularly. I enjoy visiting the centre of London where you will find me in the many art galleries or museums. I love the theatre and am a member of the British Film Institute and the National Art Fund. I also love travelling internationally and in Europe. In February of this year we visited Peru which was fascinating.

Peter T

My name is Peter and I have been a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language for 9 years. I have been working with Intuition Languages as a Tutor for 8 years. 

I enjoy working as an English Language tutor as I love the teaching, especially when I can explain a difficult area and the student appears to understand what I have taught.  I also enjoy meeting a variety of different nationalities of students and learning about their cultures. 

I am a qualified Lawyer and continue to work as a Solicitor (a type of Lawyer in England) for some of the time when I am not teaching. As such, I not only teach general English at all levels, but can also teach Legal and Business English. 

My interests and hobbies include keeping fit by swimming, jogging and going to the gym. I also have a 1966 British classic car which I enjoy looking after and driving. 

I am looking forward to meeting you soon. 

Anja S (German)

Seit meinem Zweitstudium zur Mittelschullehrerin (Englisch, DAF, Sport) habe ich Nachhilfeunterricht für jugendliche SchülerInnen gegeben.  

An der Mittelschule (Schüleralter 10-15) konnte ich vor allem die migrantischen SchülerInnen beim Lernen fördern und motivieren. Nicht alle SchülerInnen hatten es leicht, sich sprachlich zu integrieren. Ich habe die „multiple Intelligence-Methode“ angewendet und das hat das Lernen erleichtert. 

Nach einigen Jahren bin ich in die Erwachsenenbildung gegangen. Viele Menschen aus Krisenländern kamen in Österreich an. Ihre Sprachen haben ein anderes Alphabet, eine ganz andere Grammatik und viele der LernerInnen hatten nicht gedacht, dass sie mit 40 Jahren noch eine neue Sprache lernen sollen und eine Prüfung ablegen müssen. Es ist immer wieder eine Herausforderung, Menschen zu unterrichten, die beim Lernen noch am Anfang stehen. Wir hatten unser wöchentliches Frühstück, denn diese Menschen wollen sich auch mitteilen und zeigen, was sie aus ihrer Kultur mitbringen.  

Dieses Jahr habe ich in Südindien unterrichtet. Viele SchülerInnen waren sehr gut vorgebildet und Meister in der Grammatik und in der Artikulation. Wir haben das freie und spontane Sprechen und Agieren geübt und sehr viel Spaß gehabt.  

Ich bin auch selbst immer am Weiterlernen und versetze mich in die Rolle des Schülers. Das ist mir wichtig. Eigentlich möchte ich noch viele Sprachen lernen, auch mit einem anderen Alphabet, aber es ist ja noch Zeit.
