Letter to the family

Hi! I'm Nicky, a British student studying Russian and Spanish, hoping to find a friendly family to work for in Moscow.

I have previously tutored both children and adults of varying ages, but find working with children far more satisfying and enjoyable, and am hoping that by working as an au pair I will be able to build a close relationship with both the kids and the family I'm with. I believe a strong relationship is the key to effective and enjoyable teaching for both tutor and pupil, as well as when it comes to feeling comfortable with your employees.

I feel the various languages I speak and my experience as a tutor will be greatly beneficial for any family who wishes their child to improve their language skills, as well as being useful for successful and efficient communication. I also have experience in jobs which have required me to perform more manual tasks, such as cleaning, filing, and working in a kitchen, and so am undaunted by any other household jobs that are required of me.

I am friendly and professional, and pride myself on my work ethic. I love immersing myself in foreign cultures as much as possible, and am looking forward very much to being back in Russia. I am also very tidy and considerate - I appreciate that it can sometimes be daunting to let someone into your household, so I will always do my best to make sure you are comfortable with me and my work.

Experience

Having experienced working as a tutor with pupils of various ages, ranging from 3 years old to 49, I gain far more satisfaction and enjoyment from working with children.

In terms of children under the age of 7, I have tutored a number of British children in reading and writing in English. My responsibilities also consisted of spending time with them that was less focused on education, and more on chatting with them and getting to know them, in order to increase their confidence and social skills.

I also have experience of teaching English to non-native speakers. I spent several months tutoring two Spanish girls, and found it very rewarding to see their progress by the end of my time with them. I have also worked as a private tutor in Spain, teaching English to both university students and older adults.

I feel my experience in tutoring a variety of age groups is very beneficial, as it has equipped me with a variety of teaching techniques and approaches. It has also helped me get used to having to build relationships of different types and at different speeds, depending on the pupil in question. As a native English speaker with experience in both tutoring and learning foreign languages for myself, I feel I am excellently placed to help teach English, or any of my other languages, to any pupil.
