This is how 2 referees rated Andrew:
I am a friendly approachable linguist with a genuine passion for Spanish French and German. I have lived in Spain, France and Germany and have taught many learners of differing abilities and ages - secondary school pupils, sixth form students, adult learners and languages for business use. Enhanced CRB check and references available from various schools & colleges.
Many years teaching adults for leisure / fun and students for exam success. My GCSE students last year improved from grade C/D up to grade A* (new GCSE GRADE 9) . My 'A' level students increased their grades from grade C/D to grade A* or A/B. I am a fully UK qualified (PGCE) secondary school and sixth form teacher.
I have over 25 years experience teaching beginners, GCSE, A/S and A2 level in German, French and Spanish in two outstanding UK private / independent secondary schools where exam success was paramount. Examiner for GCSE and A level for two exam boards.
As a former Export Sales Manager and Marketing Linguist I also have experience working for a multi national computer company and an international textile company using languages for business… In addition, 25 years experience teaching adults privately and in evening classes. Further experience teaching in an F.E. college and a sixth form college.
I can teach for exam success, for fun or for business. I think languages should be enjoyable and hope to inspire you to achieve your aims. I will adapt my teaching methods to suit your learning style and ability … whatever works for you. In depth knowledge of many exam boards, (AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL, WJEC) including the new WJEC EDUQAS and new AQA Specifications for both GCSE and Advanced Level.

Teaching GCSE requires much more careful, exam focused preparation from an experienced teacher/ examiner, which is why the tuition rate is slightly higher than the beginners' rate.
After our first lesson I was about to offer you the beginner rate but you decided not to return. In 25 years of expert tutoring with many successful students, this situation has never happened - but I appreciate your decision & apologise for the misunderstanding. Good luck with your studies.
Best wishes. Andrew ☺
I am sure you will enjoy your stay in Nice, France, now that you are able to communicate a little with the locals !
