About Me

Dear Family,
My name is Amber, and I was born in Wiltshire, Southwest of England, home to one of the most famous landmarks, Stonehenge.
I am a graduate of London College of Fashion which is voted the best fashion school in the world, notorious in the fashion world and a test, portfolio, and interview process. Alongside the Open University where collectively I studied Fashion Business, Children’s Literature, and Cognitive Psychology, attaining an honours degree in Science. I furthered my studies with a Postgraduate Diploma in TESOL and Applied Linguistics from Anglia Ruskin, Cambridge, which was recently voted in the top hardest universities in the UK to get into. I am a trained TEFL teacher and obtained my TEFL from TEFL England.
At the start of my teaching career, I taught English at a summer camp in Bergamo, Italy. I have also taught both English, Geography, Maths, Science, and Spanish depending on the student’s needs.
I enjoy all types of teaching and have taught all ages and in all types of environments. I am always concerned about my students' academic and emotional well-being and have tried to remain in touch with them all. I like to help students on a one to one basis and set up a timetable for that purpose. I am extremely dedicated to assisting my students to reach their full potential and am especially good at coaching them for public or private exams and entrance interviews, alongside progressing efficiently. I have helped students get into Universities in Australia, receive internationally recognized certificates to showcase their level of English and overall improve their level of English. I am just as devoted to younger students and like to ensure that I am addressing both their strengths and their weaknesses. It is a great pleasure for me to see their progress.
I was brought up with a strong emphasis on manners and morals. I aim to be kind to everyone and to act fairly and with respect. I am patient with my pupils but do not let them get away with not studying! I am extremely polite and adaptable and have been brought up to put others first and treat others as I would like to be treated.
I like the theatre, the cinema, reading and learning about new cultures. I love languages and try to grasp the basics of any countries language where I live, with a basic knowledge of Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Italian, French, and Russian.
I am quite sporty and love kickboxing, pilates, tennis, yoga and running. I like going to museums and art galleries and showing my students how exciting these places can be.
I hope this gives a little picture of who I am. Warmest wishes and kindest regards, Amber

My Experience

Dear To, whom it may concern,
RE: Career Teaching Opportunity!
Since completing my TEFL in the beginning of 2013, I have worked in a variety of educational settings. These include teaching in Indonesia, Malaysia, The Maldives, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Russia, Kuwait, Italy, Taiwan, China, Germany, Switzerland and England. My international experience with different nationalities and cultural differences is vast. I have developed many valuable skills while teaching diverse groups of students including both children with learning and mental health difficulties and gifted children. I am proficient at individualising the curriculum to meet each child’s individual needs and designing resourceful lesson plans that accommodate different learning abilities and interests.
I enjoy being creative and utilising new ideas and approaches to improve the learning environment for my students. I have incorporated a variety of hands on activities, fun manipulates and learning projects to inspire and motivate the students. This also includes the integration of technology across the curriculum.
I am passionate about empowering children and helping them develop to be the best person they can be. Part of this process includes close interaction with parents to encourage participation and reinforce learning in the home while building the child’s self-esteem and confidence.
I am well aware of the high standards and it would be a wonderful challenge for me to be part of your staff. I look forward to discussing the opportunity with you at your earliest convenience. Please feel free to contact me via email.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Yours sincerely,
Amber Robertson
