Personal Description:

First and foremost, I am passionate about languages and language learning. In addition to my main languages of French and Italian, I have also studied, German, Spanish and Turkish.

I am an experienced teacher / examiner / tutor of French and Italian from the Northampton area and can cater for all ages and abilities.

I am focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - I will do everything I can to meet your expectations.

I have a BA (Hons) degree in French and Italian, a PGCE and an advanced certificate in Educational Management.

I am CRB checked.

I am an examiner in both French and Italian for three exam boards but also have considerable knowledge of all the other major exam boards.

I have lived and worked in France and have spent considerable time in Italy.

I enjoy all aspects of French and Italian culture and travel on a regular basis.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in both the State and Private sectors for over 25 years with almost 20 years experience as Head of Department/Faculty.

In addition, I have worked as a freelance French and Italian tutor for a number of years.

I also tutor pupils towards Common Entrance examinations in French and as a former Head of Faculty in the private sector, have a keen awareness of the skills required to succeed.

I have taught intensive revision workshops for both GCSE and A level during school holidays.

I have run weekly French clubs for KS2 primary school children and have organised French language and culture days for KS2 primary school children.

Teaching Approach:

Some pupils / adults struggle to learn a foreign language or are reticent to speak; I am a kind, patient tutor who works at my students' pace to ensure success for each individual and boost confidence, thus aiding knowledge and understanding leading to improved grades.

I believe that language learning should be an interesting and fun experience. The main principle is effective communication.

For students focusing on exam preparation, I also ensure that my students are secure in their knowledge and understanding of grammatical concepts and make frequent use of past papers.

I use a variety of materials including audio-visual in order to develop all four of the language skills, namely listening, speaking, reading and writing.
