English, English Grammar, English Tutoring, English Spelling, English Punctuation
About meHello, My name is Tara, and I live in the UK. I've been teaching English online for about 8 years. I teach students 18 years old and over. I like to focus on everyday natural language, and I want to help students reach their full potential with their speaking. I can also help students with their grammar, writing, pronunciation, reading, and I can provide listening exercises for homework, or any other homework a student may prefer. I can assist with business English, technical English (I recently helped someone with engineering terminology in English), and we can do general topics too. I have helped people prepare for the IELTS and TOEFL exams in the past, and I would be happy to help out with this again. I think anybody can learn a language from scratch and improve on their existing skills, but they need a patient teacher who is willing to break language down and explain things using simple vocabulary. I will also provide pictures of objects to help people retain vocabulary if they want me too. I use Wikipedia and news articles to do this. I am registered blind, which means I use a computer with a screen reader. A screen reader is software which converts the text on screen into audio, so that I can hear what is on the screen. When I teach, I always use headphones, so I don't disturb my students. I'm happy to use a webcam when I teach, in fact I prefer it if students can see me. I can provide students with Word and PDF documents if they require. I have a bachelor's degree and a postgraduate diploma in translation with language technology. I speak French and Spanish to an intermediate / advanced level. I also speak German, Italian, Greek, Russian, and Norwegian to a beginner level. I can read some Portuguese too. I love learning languages, and I like to learn some of the student's native language to help them a little bit. I understand the difficulties and frustrations students face when learning, and I would like to help people through this. Languages are fun, but they can be challenging too, and if I can help people overcome any difficulties they may have with English, I will be very happy.
