Personal Description:

Highly experienced( 25 years), trilingual and results driven secondary teacher and avid linguist.

Furthermore ,I lived in France for ten years prior to qualifying with my PGDE ,( 6 in Paris and in Lyon ).Languages have opened so many doors in my life.

I have helped countless students of all learner profiles improve vastly in languages over the years and thoroughly enjoy teaching.

Tutoring Experience:

I perfected my French while teaching in France for nine years ,in a private school in Haute Savoie, 2 years in Lyon and in Paris in 'formation continue' for 6 years and have taught in six secondary schools( all levels / all abilities ) in Dublin up to honours leaving cert level with a high success rate.Furthermore,I taught English and French at secondary level in Valencia for three years

Currently,I am teaching French in Secondary and providing tailor made tuition in French and Spanish.
* I will be recommencing English tuition from January 2019 ( Junior & Leaving)

My focus in French is from Junior cert up to university level

Professional translations are also available.

Approach to Grinds:

My approach is to make your lessons extremely learner centered and help you enjoy seeing your progress .

To this end,I always adapt my lessons very carefully to suit each particular student's learner needs and learner style.

Digital technologies figure consistently as I make all my French and Spanish lessons up to date with easily accessible resources.

It is also paramount that I empower my students with skills to help them practice in the spaces in a dynamic manner that allows faster progress.

After an initial lesson,(where I assess your prior language acquisition and areas to focus on ),I go at your particular pace for progress while simultaneously challenging you via active methodologies to build on your learning ,maintain motivation and enjoy learning and seeing your progress.

*Please note all classes are held in Portmarnock !*****

2) How can I be assured I am making progress? *****

Your feedback on particular areas will attest to your real progress ! ( provided by me, your results and what you will notice about your new language acquisition and ability to use it with far more ease!).

3) How long are the courses ?

You could take 8 / 16 / 24 ( full year )classes after an initial trial lesson ( the first lesson will deducted).

RATES 2018/19

1 one-one lesson( 1 hour 15 ) €€50

8 lessons= €400

*One to one lessons are most productive as this is where real learning takes place as students can ask any questions and I can address specific difficulties much more easily than in group settings and cater for the students learner style and monitor progress closely.
