Information About Prue - Swindon teacher - (12 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Prue:
I am currently pursuing a varied career as a specialist coach in French and English as a Foreign Language (Accent Reduction/Softening included) - as well as Latin.
I have taught extensively in schools, colleges, industry/commerce (eg Michelin Tyre Company) and freelance.
Organized, enthusiastic and motivating, I enjoy the proven ability to communicate material successfully to individuals and groups of all ages, and have accordingly gained the respect, appreciation and love of hundreds of students (young and old) in my 25 years' experience as a teacher, lecturer and private tutor.
Key words for me as a trainer are clarity, simplicity, patience, variety, appropriately graded steps, achievable but real challenges, empowerment and fun - all with a view to ensuring my students make the progress and enjoy the learning satisfaction they deserve.

Before meeting she asked me questions on why I wanted to learn and how exsperience I am - In Order for her to have an idea before the lesson. I needed it for an audition and had little time. The amount I learnt in just one hour has blown my mind!! I’ve learnt so much in just two sessions and already feel so much more confident in the language! She explained everything and why things are pronounced - she went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and didn’t overwhelm me with too much. Best teacher I’ve ever had and I got complimented on my speaking and pronunciation of the language at my audition!! Just after two sessions. Could t recommend enough. Thank-you so much
I would highly recommend her.
Its fun to learn with Prue because she makes it fun and completely makes me feel at ease.
Even when I have felt a little uncertain, Prue has encouraged me to keep pushing forward and to act as if I were confident. Reinventing yourself and believing in your continuous improvement are gifts from Prue, and I owe her a debt of gratitude.
Someone that stands by your side and shows devotion with no end. The person that encourages you to reach for your dreams and goals. The only person in the world in whom to confide your deepest fear of speech and who helps you to pronounce and articulate your words. Someone you're blessed with… I call mine Prue!
