After 6 years our wonderful languages tutor is moving on. We are on the hunt for someone who can teach primary and intermediate-aged gifted children a foreign language as part of our one-day-a-week gifted programme. Obviously, this amazing person will need to be fluent in the language offered, have the ability to 'pass it on' to kids, have a good understanding of the characteristics and needs of gifted children, and have a good sense of humour. Our last tutor was a parent of gifted kids and this certainly helped her relate and work with the kids. While a trained teacher would be great, we can offer support in planning if necessary.
Choice of language is open. Classes in the past have done introductory French, Japanese or Italian.
If you are in Auckland, preferably central or east/south-east, looking for something a couple of hours a week, and the description above sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you. Email me direct for further details (click on my name and the email will open up.)
