About Alison

Highly Experienced and Qualified Language Tutor

I am a fully qualified Modern Languages teacher, specialising in French at all levels and English Language (EFL/ESOL).

I am a native English speaker who lived and studied in France for 2 years to become fluent in the language. I also teach German and Spanish to GCSE level and have lived and taught in both Germany and Spain.

I have over 12 years' experience as a tutor and enjoy high levels of success with both children and adults, from Beginners to Advanced speakers. My approach encourages you to focus on what you do know, rather than worrying about what you don't. Creating a library of 'building blocks' upon which to construct your language learning experience enables you to feel confident right from the start and to take control of your own learning.

I am based in Kew.

Enjoyable confidence building

Written by Lesley B
I participated in weekly small group tutoring sessions for a few months with Alison to improve my French. I had been learning French on and off for a couple of years but was still very much at a beginner level. Thanks to Alison's expert and enjoyable tutoring I easily progressed to a reasonable intermediate level and now feel confident to use my French in a practical situation and inspired to continue learning. Needless to say, I wholeheartedly recommend Alison!
Subject:

Confidence speaking French at a reasonable level in a practical situation.

Fantastic tutor!

Written by Alex T
Alison is a very thoughtful and insightful tutor. She listens to your wants and needs for a learning environment, then adapts her style accordingly to ensure that you get the most out of your time. She uses a variety of techniques (including flash cards, textbook studies, films and general conversations), which helps you to improve upon your skills and build a good foundation for future independent learning. Most importantly, she builds up your confidence for you to feel able to use your language skills. A high level of knowledge in grammar and culture, Alison is a great choice for a tutor.

Outcome:
I went from having a theoretical knowledge of French, to being able to confidently speak in a conversation. I was reminded that there is always more than one way to practice your skills.
