  • Description

    Hello! My name is Matilda and I love teaching, and so combining this with improving me Spanish would be the dream. I am very much a people person, so I love to interact with both children and adults alike, as well as making new friends.

  • What skills do you have?

    I have a range of teaching experience: I teach French in a primary school, I taught English in India for 2 weeks, I taught drama at a youth club, and I taught in a school for disabled children for a term. Furthermore, I have much waitressing and childcare experience. I was head girl at my school, meaning I gave assemblies to the whole school, I lead a team of pupils and I had regular meetings with staff members. I have done lots of acting which has given me the confidence necessary to teach classes and interact with people I don't know. At GCSEs (the exams at age 16) I achieved 9 A*s, and this year I completed A levels (final exams) in Spanish, French and Philosophy in which I am predicted 3 A*s. After my gap year I am going to Durham (one of the UK's best universities) to study Spanish and Arabic. I have lots of ideas for English lessons, and I speak a high level of Spanish but it of course can be improved.

  • Languages spoken

    I speak English (native) and have a high level of Spanish and French (Top grades at A level)

  • What else ...

    I am a very keen actor and singer, playing roles like Eponine in Les Mis and the MC in Cabaret, and I have my grade 8 in singing which I love. I love to cook (very much an amateur), I love getting to know new people and cultures, and I'm very outdoorsy.
