Information About Shirley - Prescot teacher - (8 reviews)
This is how 4 referees rated Shirley:
I am 47 years old with over 20 years' teaching experience. I taught French and Spanish in a secondary school for 17 years but I learnt Italian as an adult. I did GCSE and the rest of my Italian, I have learnt in Italy. I go each year to a school for Italian as a foreign language in different parts of the country. I have incorporated travelling around the country during my studies.
I have over 20 years' teaching experience of both French and Spanish, up to GCSE level in schools. In 2012, I left mainstream teaching and set up as a private tutor . During my time as a private tutor, I have worked with children as young as four years of age and also worked with adults who need to learn languages for work purposes, personal interest or as a hobby in retirement. Some of my customers took up their interest for languages when they bought a house abroad, some learn a language for work and some learn just for holidays.
I have a friendly approach to students and am happy to work as an individual tutor and also to a small group. I have found home tutoring to be extremely rewarding and enjoy seeing the progress that students make. I am happy to teach all ages from young children to adults who require language tuition for work or holidays or pleasure. Lessons are tailored to the individual needs of each student

She is friendly and is able to quickly adjust to your level of knowledge and your particular requirements - in my case for conversational business French, building on a base of mostly forgotten 'schoolboy French'
I love seeing language learning being used in real life situations!
I enjoyed working with Shirley and gained a lot from her. Many thanks, Ann
