My teaching method is multilevel - I provide class notes for grammar, phrases etc and take the time to explain the reasoning behind the grammar and language to help students understand why they're using specific forms, grammar etc. I believe that learning any language is dependant on making your learning applicable to you and what you want to say - so I very much aim to cater that to students and their needs and knowledge gaps.
I am a graduate, completing my BA in French and Irish language in 2013, graduating with honours. I have done further study in psychology with an interest in learning styles. I have a Native level C2 of Irish Language and a passion for helping people learn and understand how to use the language with understanding, as opposed to just learning things by heart.
I am a Teacher online and have taught both large classes (40+ students) as well as one-to-one tutoring - mostly for people picking up the language as beginners.
A testimonial from a student who has taken by online class:
"So, for the last 817 days (according to Duolingo), I've been learning the language in a sort of vacuum. Getting to know the grammar, vocabulary, and some pronunciation. Some spelling. And Duolingo has been great, but limited. I've read books about the history of the language and about the nuances of words and structure trying to fill in some blanks. The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know much!
This is exactly the kind of thing I've been looking for. Hearing Amy speak the words. Her explanations and slides. It is all starting to make more sense. I have enjoyed, also, the history of the language that she provided. I've nowhere near completed either one, but I feel like I've landed in exactly the right spot."
