Hello, thank you very much for looking at my profile and also making the first step in developing your skills even further. It would be an absolute pleasure to work with you on achieving your goals and doing so in a fun, dynamic way.

I am proud to say that I have over 7 years’ experience teaching English as a Foreign Language, as well as experience in numerous art related projects.

I can teach all ages and abilities and am especially fond of delivering fun, creative lessons for children. I can create visually pleasing PowerPoints, creative projects, roleplays, speaking activities and so on.

I believe I have a lot of transferrable skills which I have gained from various experiences, such as working in private and public schools in the UK, Spain as well as an online platform for the UAE, China and the UK.

Furthermore, I have experience in Planit CAD Fusion, Adobe Illustrator, spatial and kitchen design, sales, distribution, residential care work and a nursery assistant through work-based employment in addition to teaching

Services

Dear learners and anyone who is interested,

I offer a free consultation to gauge your requirements and interests. I also provide material including a mini quiz and a questionnaire to indicate a placement level and your learning style.

I can offer conversational English, Business English and General English. I can also help assist in various other areas such as helping with homework, preparing for an interview or exam preparation such as the First Certificate in English (FCE).

Certain times of the year, and following guidelines, I tend to carry out various activities including mini excursions to popular cities within the South of England, using local transport and navigating around a new area, ordering Fish and Chips, tea and scones, or a pint (dependant on age), watching a theatre performance, going to the cinema or museum and much more.

With regards to Art related services, I can provide one to one or group sessions. This can be for occations, themed events, or simply as a hobby or to learn a new skill.

I can provide an educational spin to Art sessions, such as learning about the origin and cultural aspects.

*All of the above are catered to the students’ needs and the costs are dependant on the program requirements. Conversational English is set at £15 an hour. Please make contact to discuss options further.

    My name is Raquel García, I work for the Students CAPS / PAC (Conversations Assistant Programme for Schools), and it is my pleasure to provide a testimonial for ODELL BROOKS. ODELL BROOKS worked as a Conversation Assistant in a school called JESÜITES SARRIA – SANT GERVASI in the province of BARCELONA, in Spain, and her employment period was from 1 ST October 2012 to the end of 31ST of March 2013 on an internship placement. During this period, she proved to be an exceptional Conversation Assistant. She was friendly and dedicated herself to helping the students improve their conversation skills. She was really enthusiastic to learn and work hard, and was also very good at organizing students and events, to help them learn English and to improve their conversation skills. Odell performed all tasks competently and with commitment and enthusiasm. She demonstrated the ability to work under pressure and to plan and organize tasks successfully to meet deadlines. Her strong interpersonal and communication skills allowed her to be in front of a class with children, I developed good working relationships with both her colleagues in the school where she worked, and also with the host family who she lived with. ODELL BROOKS was a great asset to our programme, and I highly recommend her for employment. Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
