Information About Caroline - Rickmansworth teacher - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Caroline:
I am a highly qualified and successful teacher with 25 years' experience of teaching students of all abilities in the UK. Previously Head of Languages in a secondary school, I have a passion for France, spending 11 weeks a year there, and my knowledge of French is completely up-to-date as opposed to text-book French. German is the other language I am qualified to teach.
I am the former Head of Modern Foreign Languages and Vice Principal in a secondary school and have taught French to students of all abilities, from beginner to A level, as well as German to GCSE Higher level. I am fully conversant with the current requirements of the exam boards. My students regularly obtain results 2 levels above their predicted grades and have even been known to enjoy their language learning!
As well as whole-class teaching, I have extensive experience of private tuition with both children and adults; my youngest student is currently 7 years old and my eldest is 87. I also teach couples and individuals preparing either for holidays or to relocate to France.
I have taught French in a state primary school to 240 enthusiastic little people and have Skype students across the globe, from Canada to Hong Kong. When I am in France, I offer Skype sessions to any of my students who wish to have even better continuity of teaching.
First and foremost, I want my students to enjoy their language-learning experience. When having fun, my students feel relaxed and are then more likely to retain what is being taught. As a private tutor, my lessons are completely geared to the particular requirements and interests of the students, whether patiently coaxing and cajoling a reluctant teenager towards a GCSE pass, helping a potential Oxbridge candidate to obtain a starred "A" grade at A level or providing opportunities for adults to resurrect their rusty French in order to add an extra dimension to holidays in France or even retire abroad. No two lessons are the same but they are all enjoyable.
