I started as a Volunteer Teacher at the Stirling School of English in 2013 while studying for my MSc TESOL and Applied Linguistics. This opportunity allowed me to put the theory, which I had learned on the MSc, into practice as well as give something back to the community.
The main focus of my classes was Academic Speaking; however I also gained experience in teaching Elementary, Pre-intermediate and Advanced learners. I even had a chance to teach Medical English on a one-to-one basis. Thanks to this fantastic experience, I was able to gain employment at a private language school in Edinburgh. Although it is ‘cheerio’ for now, I would be delighted to return to the Stirling School of English in the future.
