Tutor bio: Karen
My name is Karen, and I’ve been working as a freelance online tutor with EtonX since its conception in 2015. I was new to teaching online, and enjoyed, from the start, the challenge and freedom that online teaching brings. Up until then, I had worked as a classroom-based ESOL/TEFL tutor both in the UK and in Spain, having qualified as a CELTA teacher in 2011. Now, I continue to work both in the classroom and online.
What I love about working with EtonX is the quality of the online activities and classroom activities and the diversity of the students. It’s exciting to be part of a new way of teaching and learning, and I, along with my students, continue to learn and grow by taking part.
Tutor bio: Patty
My journey into tutoring for EtonX began in a London Secondary school over twenty years ago. My shift to teaching online has enabled me to continue as a teacher and to expand my horizons, both professionally and geographically. I can still teach traditional subjects such as GCSE English and Literature, but I can also be part of an educational shift which emphasises the significance of life skills beyond the academic studies. With EtonX, I enjoy the privilege of accompanying groups of young people on their journeys into self awareness and development. In delivering group classes, joining their online discussions and monitoring their progress through the self-study tasks, in just a matter of days or weeks I can see them develop confidence and insight as they grow more team-like; supporting and encouraging each other as they practise their new skills. The course participants expand their world-view through a global classroom and experience the fun of connecting with diverse locations from a safe space.
What our students say...
“My tutor was really helpful. She prepared really well for every tutorial. She always had a really positive mood which influenced me a lot and she also guided me how to use my e-portfolio effectively. When me and my classmates were having discussions, we all raised different views and it enriched my horizons to a certain extent.”
“My tutor was called Patty, and she was very nice and always interested in my opinions and I felt like I could ask her any questions and it was a very nice atmosphere in class. Also, the time was very well organised.”
“The EtonX Writing Skills course offers multiple skills about writing different types of essays. The tasks are affordable, and the tutor is so nice and friendly.”
