Highly experienced French, Spanish and EAL tutor.

A native English speaker, I am a passionate linguist with a degree in Linguistics & Phonetics with French and Spanish from the University of Leeds. After graduating, I went on to teach English, French and Spanish in an international boarding school in Switzerland. Here I became fluent in French and Spanish and gained invaluable experience in teaching international students at all levels and ages. I have now returned to London and am looking to continue my tutoring in all three languages.

I provide a bespoke one to one service in teaching children of all ages French, Spanish and English to all levels: inc. beginner, intermediate, advanced and specialise in GCSE, iGCSE, AS/A2 levels, IB and university tuition.

I have travelled extensively whilst working as a tutor, providing opportunities for me to immerse myself in various cultures, feeling truly at home in Switzerland, Mallorca, Italy and Greece. Each destination presented new challenges but together they have left me with a plethora of linguistic skills and an invaluable knowledge of each society and its norms.

Refrence for Lucinda Williams

In the summer of 2014 Lucinda was teaching French B SL of IB DP to my daughter Tamara. Lucinda brought a lot of teaching materials and her lessons were always very interesting and productive. Tamara enjoyed the lessons with Lucinda and when she was back to school her progress was obvious. Lucinda is a very attentive and serious teacher and I am confident that her teaching potential will benefit her future students.

My daughter's completed her IB DP with the highest grade 7 in French B SL - there is a lot of Lucinda's input in that mark.

Referecne for lucinda Williams

Lucinda was an excellent tutor for my son at Josh. He is usually a confident learner but was really struggling with Spanish. He settled straight away with Lucinda and she knew when to stretch him and when to support and guide him. She made the lessons fun and relevant and took the time to find out exactly what the curriculum required.
Subject:
Sociology
Outcome:
He passed his Spanish GCSE and was delighted!

Exceptional French tutor

My son who is 10 years old has been having French tuition with Lucinda for a year and a half. He was in the bottom set for French last year and wanted to improve his language, vocabulary and grammar skills. Lucinda has been an incredible tutor to him. She makes lessons enormously fun, varied yet packed with lots of learning material, advanced vocabulary and grammar. He has learnt so much without even realising it. He did so well in last years summer school exams, thanks entirely to Lucinda, that his school moved him straight to the top set for French this year. And thanks to her incredible teaching and continued support this year he got the top French mark in the year group in both the winter and summer exams. Lucinda is a very talented and gifted tutor who has a deep understanding of both the French language as well as how to teach it well to students of all ages and abilities. We couldn't recommend her more highly.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
Moving from the bottom French set to the top and getting the highest marks in school exams

Best tutor we ever had!

Lucinda taught our daughter for French GCSE. She was a reluctant learner and had grown to really dislike the subject and resented the fact that we had suggested she do extra French outside of school. As her cousins were French we had insisted, but several good tutors were unable to meet this tricky challenge. Then we found Lucinda; she effortlessly managed to engage our daughter and within a couple of sessions our daughter found that she was actually looking forward to the lessons! Lucinda was so professional, knew exactly what was required of the syllabus, and was very responsive to the type of learner our daughter is. She taught with humour and was so friendly and kind that our daughter started to learn and retain what she hadn't been willing or able to before. Her enthusiasm, expertise, patience and wit coaxed our daughter along to get a grade that we hadn't thought possible, but more importantly laid the foundations to enable Lara to communicate in French at a meaningful level with her family. I asked my daughter to give me one word that summed Lucinda up and she said "perfect!"
Subject:
French
Outcome:
B grade at GCSE, but more importantly reversed our daughters dislike of the language, leaving the door open to develop her skills in the future
