About Nassima

A* GCSE French and Spanish - Qualified Head of Spanish

Please send me a message if my availability does not suit you - I can make some arrangements if necessary during the exam period.

Qualified Examiner for Edexcel and AQA exam boards but am able to work with all other exam boards.

I am the head of Spanish at a secondary school in West London. I have worked with many GCSE French & Spanish students who were not reaching their full potential, especially with last minute exam techniques. I have pushed them beyond as far as they can go and as a result, all of my students have achieved an A* with my support. With the new GCSE requirements, I have ensured that all students understand the specification of their exam boards and how to reach that top grade 8/9.

I love teaching languages and I extend that love to my students. I focus on building confidence when it comes to speaking in a modern foreign language. In my tailor made lessons, I incorporate all four skills; listening, reading, speaking and writing and my students will always feel a sense of achievement. I am a currently a qualified secondary school teacher in French & Spanish and teach from beginner to GCSE level.

I studied at the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle in Kensington where I became a fluent French speaker. During my degree at the University of Westminster, I moved to Paris for a year to continue my French studies. Following my degree, I did a Post Graduate Certificate of Education at the Institute of Education specialising in Modern Foreign Languages; French and Spanish.

I am flexible, and work at a pace which is challenging yet manageable for my students. I have an excellent rapport with young people and like to work with strengths to improve weaknesses.

My lessons are fun and my students are happy!

Fantastic Tutor

Written by Elle U
Nassima tutored my daughter in preparation for the Written Controlled Assessment part of her GCSE. She travelled all the way to north London and fitted us in over Christmas with only a days notice. She helped my daughter to greatly improve her written CA and was extremely patient and understanding, as well as having a lovely, friendly manner. I am confident that my daughter's mark will now increase at least a grade. I would definitely use Nassima again and would highly recommend her (additionally, my daughter said that she wishes she had her as a teacher!).
Subject:
French (GCSE)

Lovely tutor

Written by Carlos B
Nassima is a professional and dedicated Tutor. She knows how to adapt to every different student and works very hard to plan lessons which are interesting and relevant. She has a natural flair for teaching and will slow down as much as needed. An incredibly patient person, she is kind and friendly.

Amazing

Written by Sara S
I love Nassima because she really has made a difference in my Spanish. I am more confident with speaking, and have learnt so many new words and sentence structures. I wish she taught me Spanish when I first started learning it. I highly recommend Nassima as a tutor.

I went from an E to a B in my GCSE and we still haven't finished!

Language Tutor

Written by Yasmina A
Nassima Iggoute tutored me for French and Spanish and was a fantastic teacher. She took time to plan our lessons and tailor made the classes for me as as my French was more of an beginners/intermediate level and my Spanish was non existent!
She has a relaxed way of teaching and lets you learn at your own pace and kindly takes time even after classes to look at your work or recommend ways to learn or do your homework before your next class.
I really enjoyed my classes with her and would highly recommend her for both languages.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
Improved levels of French and a good, solid introduction to Spanish.

Wonder French teacher!

Written by Hyacinth G
Nassima has been working with my son for two months now, helping him prepare for his GCSEs. I've seen incredible improvement with his interest in French since they've started and he's moved from achieving C's to solid A-A* results in all his practice tests and coursework.

I'd highly recommend Nassima as she is flexible to work around your own schedule and is very patient with teens.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
Currently A working on A*

Excellent Spanish Teacher/Tutor

Written by Joycelin L
I booked Nassima last year as a Spanish tutor for my daughter Nina, who was in Year 11 at the time. Before the tutoring sessions my daughter's grades were just about the average grade C/D I booked Nassima for two 1hour sessions a week, for 3-4months. By the end of the first month I could tell Nina's Spanish was improving from the feedback from her Spanish teacher in school. By the end of all the tutoring Nina's grades had vastly improved, Nassima helped boost her grades from C-Ds to A-A*. Nassima definitely helped with Nina's confidence a lot when it came to Spanish oral practicals.

I would highly recommend Nassima as a Spanish tutor.
Subject:
Spanish
Outcome:
Nina happily passed Spanish GCSE with an A* and has now chosen to take A-level Spanish.
