I was a teaching assistant in a secondary school for nearly 3 years and was in charge of students from Y7 to Y12. I am currently teaching French in a primary school on Saturdays with pupils aged 5 to 10 and I also tutor students preparing for IB, GCSE/DELF, IGCSE and A-Level exams, aged 9 to 17.
I have previous experience with children ranging from 10 to 20 years old in English and German.
I was also part of the administration and examination department in a school for over 3 years and was involved in the running of exams. I have experience providing help and support to special needs students. I have a good understanding of various examination boards.
Any question, feel free to message me, I answer all queries :-)
Sullivan has been an extremely engaged and engaging French tutor to our 14 year old son who was not particularity keen on French. His lessons have been varied and have drawn on different resources offering a lot of opportunity for consolidation and practice. He has also challenged our son's French skills extending them occasionally into uncharted territory and allowing him to experiment with the language.
Sullivan tutored my daughter, helping her to prepare for GCSE French. Sullivan is a French national who speaks excellent English and we were very impressed with every aspect of his tutoring. His is reliable and punctual and prepared to travel some distance to tutoring locations. He has a calm nature and is a good listener and communicator. Sullivan is always well organised for lessons with worksheets and audio activities. He has an excellent knowledge of the French and the English language and is passionate about teaching. His lessons were always well prepared and considered and were appropriate to need. Sullivan will find out what his student knows already and then build a suitable scheme of work based on their prior knowledge. He set homework tasks each week to enable continuity from lesson to lesson. What we especially liked was that Sullivan tailored subject matter to the interests of our daughter which made the lessons even more engaging and accessible. We highly recommend Sullivan. He would be the first person to turn to should we need French lessons again.
Sullivan, is a polite and patient teacher.
Ready to help solve issues with fundamentals and advance of the language. Good use of language in creative writing and an excellent encouraging and motivating individual.
Will definitely use him again.
