My name is Meheraj Sultana and I teach Maths and English at Learning First Tenerife. I completed my higher education in the UK and have extensive experience working in London, as well as Spain. I have been teaching for many years and have experience teaching in a variety of settings with students of all ages and abilities, including children with special needs.
I consider myself to be an interactive and dynamic teacher and therefore the majority of my lessons are about doing practical and enjoyable exercises that students can understand and where possible, relate to in everyday life. I find that this drives motivation and interest in the subject and it creates a good teacher student rapport, which is essential in the learning process.
English is my first language and teaching it as a foreign language is an absolute joy. I have taught it in commercial language schools, secondary schools and institutions of higher education and in Industry. I place a strong emphasis on learning through dialogue and role play, I find that this is a fun and creative way of expression, which students usually enjoy participating in.
Having studied mathematics and teaching it for several years, it has now become second nature to me. However, I understand that many students enter my classroom with a not-so-favourable view of maths. I appreciate that it can be a challenging subject and my aim is for every student to become better ‘problem solvers’. Even if they do not learn every math concept, the ability to analyse and solve problems will carry with them throughout their lives.
In three words, my students would describe me as patient, caring and encouraging.
My name is Sophie Emby and I am one of the English teachers at LFT. After I finished my degree as Psychomotor Therapist in Denmark in 1996, I have worked with children of all ages both in and out of schools, both in therapy and in more strict learning environments. I have been speaking fluent English since I was 16 where I spent one year in High School in Florida.
I moved to Tenerife in 2014 and found that my long time experience with children was a perfect match with teaching English and have since been teaching both children and adults, beginners and advanced students.
I greatly enjoy teaching English here and I am sure my practical way of teaching will be a benefit for the children. I focus greatly on the interaction between my students during class to encourage them to use the language more freely. I try to make the subject practical and easy to access as well as maintaining a positive and respectful environment.
My name is Kirsten Arentz and I am the German teacher at Learning First Tenerife.
I hava a degree in law but since 2001 I have been working as an German teacher. I am currently teaching adults, teenagers and children. I have worked in several schools, in further education institutions, for employees in hotels and other companies, as well as in the spanish “ Escuela Oficial de Idiomas“.
I enjoy teaching a lot and I find it very satisfying to see how my students improve their German language.
I try to teach my students in the most practical ways and to I try to motivate them to use the German language as much as possible in their everyday lives.
My name is Tim Porter and I am one of the English teachers at Learning First Tenerife.
My teaching experience comes from working as a sports teacher/instructor in the UK and France, teaching children how to canoe, kayak, climb and more. I coached young adults and my own teams to improve skills they already had.
I also worked as a teaching assistant helping students that either needed extra help to understand and those that were given more challenging tasks to push their learning.
I find it very satisfying when someone can learn how to do something that makes their life better in some way. This may be through learning a language to better communicate or a new skill that improves their life.
Because I am a native speaker my students are continuously hearing how to speak English with the correct pronunciation and often find themselves using more vocabulary to describe a word that they cannot translate.
For me, it is all about showing the students what they can do, sometimes in a way they weren’t expecting.

Leverages student feedback to create dynamic lesson plans that address students’ strengths and weaknesses. Implemented an Individualised Education Plan for students with unique needs.

My name is Marie le Guillou and I am French. I teach French at Learning First Tenerife.
I completed my studies in France, in Rennes and Marseilles. I worked for several years in different schools and with students of all ages.
Today I live in Tenerife and work with secondary students and adults. I like to share my knowledge of my language with my students and I think it is very important to work with a native teacher, especially in oral activities.
My classes are dynamic and allow you to discover French in a concrete way in relation to the everyday world. The exchange of interest is paramount and I adapt my classes to inspire my students differently.
In each class, I try to incorporate the different language skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing. Whether it is for pleasure or to prepare for an exam is essential to practice all forms of expression through all kinds of tools.
I can say that for me, teaching is second nature.
