Languages and Yoga: French, Spanish, English and Hatha Yoga

I am a London-born, fully-qualified, professional translator and private tutor. Having lived, studied and taught in both Spain and France, I am fluent in both languages and conversant with the countries' cultures and traditions. I worked as a T.E.F.L. Teacher in Paris during the 1980s, teaching English to business groups and the unemployed on government training schemes.

I hold an M.A. with Distinction in Applied Translation Studies and have been working as a language tutor and translator since 2008. Primarily teaching KS3, GCSE and 'A' level students French and Spanish - with a particular focus on fine-tuning their language skills as part of their exam preparation - I also teach English and English as Foreign or Second language.

My tuition, including reading and listening comprehension, written work, oral and grammar, adheres to coursework requirements for the main exam boards and is tailored to the individual students or their learning difficulties. I aim to complement and support the students using a combination of curriculum designated text books/material, on-line language learning resources as well as my own text books. I also provide Skype lessons.

I feel comfortable teaching children, teenagers and adults of all abilities and possess an intuitive understanding of problems encountered by language students. I treat children and teenagers as equals, a winning formula that helps to engage them, establish a good tutor-student relationship and develop their confidence.

I have a current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Reference for Lisa's French Tuition

Lisa tutored me through my A-Level French. My teaching at school during GCSE had been extremely poor, and i was miles behind the rest of the class at A-level.
Lisa was extremely helpful in fast-tracking my French Language skills up to the standard required. She was patient and very clear, with a fantastic way of explaining grammar which somehow made sense (it never had done before!). She taught me to have the confidence to speak freely and not be intimidated by the language. She had many good tricks for remembering conjugations and other bits of grammar, and was a very thorough and yet patient teacher. I think that i owe my ability to confidently have conversations in french today to the french conversation work she did with me during this time (i have not studied french formally since A-Level). In my French oral exam I achieved almost full marks.
Overall, I found her to be both a very engaging teacher, and a very kind and nurturing person who was very supportive throughout my exams and stresses.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
Close to full marks in my French Oral Exam (A*), where before i found speaking very difficult. grade B overall at French A-Level, where without her help i would most certainly have failed.
