I am a qualified Modern foreign Languages Teacher employed in a Secondary School and Sixth Form College teaching French and Spanish from year 7 to year 13. I have been teaching French and Spanish continuously since 2000.
Although teaching Modern Languages in secondary schools and 6th form colleges is my area of expertise I have good experience of teaching French and Spanish at primary school level. I taught primary school children privately and I taught in after school clubs in primary schools. I also worked as a supply teacher in primary schools and during these days I fitted in a few languages sessions.
As a tutor I mainly taught GCSE students ahead of their GCSEs in whichever skill they needed help with. I also tutored a student of Spanish and French at degree level, helping her with her translation modules, grammar and cultural research.
My current tutees are varied and include a KS3 learner of Spanish who misses a lot of school lessons and doesn't want to fall behind , a GCSE Spanish student who is panicking about her approaching exam, and a Sixth Form biology student who is passionate about languages and wants to learn French so that he can take his family to live there. I find helping out these young people reaching their goal so uplifting and fulfilling.
I am very passionate about teaching languages. I always endeavour to learn new strategies and methods to improve my performance and ensure that my students leave the lesson with the feeling of learning something new. To me learning is not only about getting the grades, although this is very important. Enjoying languages is an important part of the learning process, and it is for this reason that I suggest engaging and fun activities as well as more academic and grammar focused ones.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you're looking for someone who is a committed tutor, focused around deep learning as well as learning for pleasure.
