Highly qualified ESOL and EFL Teacher and Examiner
I have over 15 years experience in teaching English as a foreign language, as both a teacher and a manager. I have been teaching and managing courses in London for the past 10 years , and previously taught as well as managed EFL schools abroad.
I have a TESOL diploma plus national teaching and ESOL qualifications. I have recently been appointed to the International ESOL Examiner panel for Trinity College, London. As part of this examiner role I visit schools in Italy and Spain to examine students.
I have taught classes at a range of different levels, including both general English and exam preparation for ESOL skills Life, FCE, CAE and IELTS exams. I have also taught Academic English and study skills to foreign students preparing to study both undergraduate and masters degrees in the UK.
I have delivered one to one tuition on site to business employees at an international company based in South London, as well as to private students at different levels.
I believe in spending a little time in getting to know my individual students so that I can ascertain the best activities to allow them to develop their English. Everyone needs to be inspired and motivated in order to succeed, as well as to be able to enjoy the learning experience. We would work together to set a challenging and purposeful learning environment by discussing my students’ study objectives, assessing their current level and then agreeing individual learning goals for their study.
Nicola managed ESOL and EFL provision at Kingston College for a number of years. She was competent and well liked by both colleagues and students. She is a good teacher and able to work with a wide variety of learners to achieve optimum outcomes.
To whom it may concern,
I was Nicola's student at kingston college for ESOL entry 3. I think Nicola Bamford is a one of the best English teacher that I ever had and also she is kind and pationt for every student.she was great and supportive teacher. She uses a humorous way to teach .it is easy to undrestand . Your faithful Soheila madadi
Nicola is my home tutor for English language. I'm having twice a week session with her and she was brilliant. My English speaking was really bad before until I have her as my private tutor. I can guarantee she will be an asset to any institution she's applying.
