Information About Janet - Staines teacher - (10 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Janet:
I have been teaching for 32 years - A Level and GCSE German and GCSE and A level French. I am particulary proficient at preparing GCSE students for the Speaking and Writing exams and I add value to all the students I teach and my students achieve excellent results at all levels. My success is due to careful planning based on students' needs according to information I learn from rigorous and purposeful assessment. I am available to tutor for GCSE, iGCSE French and German, AS and A2 German and French. I am familiar with all exam boards and their requirements.
I have taught in 4 schools where I have taught German and French from Year 7 to A level. I have over 30 years teaching experience and I love my job, particularly teaching and learning with the students. I am Head of Languages, Head of German and also a professional coach and help all levels of teaching and non-teaching staff to help themselves to move forward. I know what exam boards are looking for so that students can achieve their highest grades possible at GCSE and AS/A2. Students I have tutored privately have achieved grades higher than they started with. Students and parents appreciate my knowledge and experience. All my private tutees so far say they have enjoyed being taught by me and I have helped them to feel more confident.
I introduce new vocabulary in a variety of ways which I then practise and reinforce with students so that they are confident. I do this using a range of activities so that they have the opportunity to listen, speak, read and write. I know that a sound understanding of grammar is essential for students to achieve good grades and to be able to use the language more independently. I use regular assessment to check for understanding and so that I know what to plan so that students can progress. I teach study skills and exam technique, including essay technique, translation and how to develop good answers for the oral exam. I can teach Literature and Film at AS and A2 German and French. I am competent and confident in teaching for the new GCSE, AS and A level specifications and know what examiners are looking for and can prepare students for all aspects of the exam.

I would highly recommend. Thank you so much.
We were able to have lessons at our house and at Janet's house which made life a lot easier.
If you are looking for a tutor to help your child/teen, want to see them enjoy learning, with an aim to bring out the full potential then call Janet.
Janet listened to what my son said, understood what I was worried about plus pointers from his teachers and created an individual lesson plan that worked!
Thank you Janet.
In my son's own words 'she certainly knows her stuff'.
