Experienced and Engaging Languages Tutor

I am an experienced languages tutor with over 7 years of private one-to-one and small group tuition experience and more than 1500 hours in contact time. I have a degree from Oxford University in French and Spanish, have lived abroad for over 2 years perfecting the spoken aspect of my languages and have taught in primary schools, secondary schools and adult learners.

I'm a passionate and enthusiastic teacher who engages enormously with children and young adults, always aiming to find each child's precise needs and setting clear objectives for them not only to advance academically but also to feel in control of their own progress in the subject too. The aim is to help make them independent learners within the subject. Being a self-made fluent speaker of French and Spanish, I understand the fear and anxiety that comes with taking the first steps into learning a language, as well as the time and dedication you need if you are to make progress. For me, the rapport we create is essential to great progress and this involves a lot of trust and fun as well. I believe in positive trial and error which is key to taking risks and exploring in language. Mistakes are never bad! It's how we learn! Creating an environment in which students can take risks allows them to progress really quickly. I'm currently guiding 9 students through GCSE and A level French and Spanish, tutoring both students who are entirely homeschooled and those who need extra support at school and am often asked to tutor other subjects as and when they're needed.
