Approach to Grinds:
My approach is to make your lessons extremely learner centered while allowing you perceive your real progress and keep motivated to improve further!
To facilitate this, I always carefully create lessons to suit each particular student's learner needs & style with their learning objective in mind.
Digital technologies are also an integral part of my methodology, as I make all my lessons up to date with easily accessible learner centered resources for practice.
It is also paramount that I empower my students with skills for practice between lessons, which allows faster perceptible progress!
*After your initial lesson, where I assess your prior language acquisition and areas on which to focus,learning is paced for progress while simultaneously challenging you via active methodologies to build on your learning.
In a course of 8 lessons, the 6th one incorporates a short evaluation & further learner strategies.
In a course of 6 lessons ,the 4th one incorporates a short evaluation & further learner strategies.
***** Online classes are available via a video conferencing tool hosted by me.
( you just need a computer or the app on your phone which improves the audio I will explain prior to commencing).
Online classes mean no travel or time wasted & help you link revision to the last lesson ,really speeding up progress & keeping motivation high!

TUITION RATES 2019/20

Why one to one rather than small groups?
*One to one lessons are most productive as this is where real learning takes place as students can ask any questions they feel unable to ask in a class setting and I can also address specific difficulties much more easily .Furthermore, I can cater for the students learner style and monitor progress more closely.
Each student receives individualised online support to complement the lessons and shared material.
Online lessons are via an online conferencing tool Zoom and I recommend installing it on your phone also for audio exercises and practice.
À bientôt / Hasta pronto / I look forward to working with you on your chosen language.
