Me, myself and teaching
My name is Sofía Borrego Morena and I was born in Andalusia, South of Spain; although I was living in Torroella de Montgrí, in Catalonia, for ages. Torroella is a cultural village with a huge historical past in the middle of the Costa Brava.
I am the youngest of four sisters which two of them are living in England nowadays. Moreover, I have got a son, Arnau, he is studying at Barcelona’s University. He is smarter than me and I feel very proud of him.
I studied Art History at the University of Girona. I used to be art reviewer and now I am looking for a permanent position as a teacher. My master degree and other qualifications permit me to teach some languages as: Spanish, Catalan, French and English for foreigners. I have been teaching languages for students and adults for more than 3 years. In UK, I have been teaching Spanish and French to KS3 and KS4, and I am capable to teach Spanish in KS5.
My students are a bit different than me, when I used to go to Secondary School, same problems but dissimilar behaviours. I found them very active and with clearer ideas that I used to have. For this reason, I try to training hard and catch up about all the new ways to approach to teach.
To sum up, I would be delighted to be part of your educational team at the School. I might be able to offer some substantial and enjoyable lessons.
We take humanitarian learning and experience direct from the field to the classroom for analysis and dissemination, and back to the field for immediate implementation.
Everyone finds exams and tests stressful, and if your child could do with some extra support, our teachers have a proven track record of providing first class tuition in their subject/s specialism. Our teachers have the ability to help your child to achieve their true potential, which could mean moving up a set in school or a grade higher than predicted at GCSE.
Our teachers will come to your home at a day and time that is convenient for you and your child. All materials are provided by the teacher and if you are happy for them to do so, they can liaise with your child’s class / subject teacher to ensure your child gets the most out of tuition.
We have a full range of range of subject specialist teachers who can provide tuition covering all the new specifications:
Maths and Numeracy English Language and Literature Languages Humanities
This list is not exhaustive.
When we say 1-2-1 tuition, that’s exactly what we mean. No other pupils for the teacher to focus their attention on, just your child.
You might suspect that your son or daughter has dyslexia if their reading and writing skills are not developing as you anticipated, despite the fact that he/she is articulate and has good oral language skills. You may notice that your child struggles to ‘sound out’ words when reading or be unable to recall whole words such as ‘the’, ‘and’ or ‘was’. You may notice that your son or daughter easily forgets simple instructions and appears to day dream much of the time. All these are characteristics highly associated with dyslexia.
Other signs to look out for are:
They are struggling with spelling, writing or reading and or numeracy. They are not progressing as quickly as his/her peers or not progressing at all. Their speed of processing, whether spoken and or written language, is slow. They may be forgetful of words. They may have low self-esteem.
We are able to complete dyslexia screening assessments, full diagnostic assessments and DSA (Disabled Students Allowance) assessments using highly qualified personnel that have active registration together with an approved Assessment Practising Certificate with the professional body PATOSS (Professional Association of Teachers of Specific Learning Difficulties).
After your child has been assessed, you (or they, if they are over 18) will receive a report that outlines the outcome of each test completed. The report will also contain recommendations of what support is required to assist your child to make progress in the areas where they are having difficulties.
If you think that your son or daughter may have dyslexia and nobody appears to be listening to you, we can help you. If you require an up-dated assessment of your dyslexia in order to access support at University, we can help you.
