This is how 2 referees rated Adam:
Let me briefly introduce myself. I am Adam. I started learning foreign languages around 25 years ago and started tutoring in 2010. I am experienced in giving tuition in Spanish, French, Italian and German. I have helped many people in the time I have been tutoring.
As you can probably tell from the number of languages I tutor, language learning and teaching is something I am passionate about. Helping others to learn subjects I love is my dream job and I am more than happy to help anyone with a desire to learn/improve their language skills. Tuition is my only job, so I can dedicate my time to ensuring that you get the guidance and support that you need.
I am an experienced tutor in all the languages I teach. I first started tutoring over seven years ago and since then have helped a number of people with lots of different abilities. Some learners who used me for sessions are now living abroad. Some people learn a language for work purposes. Recently a customer got a promotion at work after improving their Spanish. Others just enjoy using their language skills on holidays.
I tutor on a one-to-one basis, but regularly tutor couples, family members and friends learning together.
I decided some time ago to focus on adult learners, as I feel that tutoring adults is more fun. Most adults do not have exams or assignments to worry about and we can really focus on your needs and wishes.
During sessions you build your confidence and knowledge of the language through theory and speaking practice. You need to have knowledge to be able to create sentences, but you also need to practise the language to gain confidence. One problem people often have before coming to see me is they have knowledge, but lack the confidence to use the language. In sessions we regularly practise your skills to increase your confidence.
One concern many people new to language learning have is they will not learn quickly or will somehow waste my time if they struggle. Most people do not struggle and often people surprise themselves at how much they pick up. Sessions are designed around you and only you. If you learn quickly, that is great. If you need more time, that is also not a problem. I am here to support you and although we both want you to progress, my main aim is to help you to progress at a pace that suits you.
My aim during tuition is to help you to achieve the most you can in a relaxed yet productive environment. I appreciate difficulties learners face with learning a language and try to explain everything in plain English. Anyone can learn a language with the right support.
