Yue's feedback about Solenne (Beginner French tuition near Orpington)
I have been learning languages for more than 20 years, and have had a dozen of native/non-native language tutors, and Solenne is by far the best tutor I’ve had (not one of!). Solenne impressed me from the get go, she asked me in detail about my French and language learning history in general and my purpose and goal of learning French. She then gave a very professional introduction about her teaching approach and methodology for a learner learning for interest while we were still communicating through the platform. Skeptical as I was in the beginning, I went and first tried with a different tutor who had a lower charge out rate, since I am a beginner learner who is only learning for interest. After two sessions, I realized that it didn’t suit me, as there wasn’t a methodological structure to follow, and I was learning random words and phrases. I immediately reached back out to Solenne. Since then, I’ve been learning French with Solenne for about three months now. And here’s a typical breakdown of our 1.5 hour session: we would first start by going through the mistakes I made and questions I had in the homeworks (yes she gives homework! The only way to progress), followed by a 15-20 minutes conversation in French where I try to answer and ask questions with everything I’ve learnt (along with made-up words by me lol). We would then move on to learning some new content, covering some new topics, knowledge points, listening materials, vocabulary package, grammatical/sentence structures (not all in one go!), in the end a quick recap and homework. Solenne would always be very patient with me, and encourages me to express myself in French freely even though I have doubts about sentence structures/words. I find listening particularly challenging, she would always encourage me to grasp key words first, and the essence of the content next, which largely helps me overcome my fear for listening materials. She would also takes care to note down the parts I struggle with, and would help me practice these areas through different activities, this helps me to develop a upward spiral learning pattern. What truly makes Solenne stand out as a tutor, is her care for all her students (she calls her students as her children haha). She would listen to your needs and goals, and develops a tailored approach for each of her students to cater to everyone’s learning goal/speed. I find it astonishing that she always knows where we’ve left things off and what I’ve struggled with before. I would highly recommend Solenne to anyone who is looking to learn French and truly wish to actually being able to speak and communicate freely at the end of the day. A truly remarkable tutor!
Kim's feedback about Claire (Beginner French tuition near Orpington)
My daughter had a very good first lesson with Claire. She helped her to pick up some new words, understand the difference in French feminine and Masculine's and decided the best teaching style. I would recommend.

Linda's feedback about Diana Beatriz (Beginner Spanish tuition near Orpington)
I have had 9 lessons so far and haven't lost interest, which is a first for me! I find Diana very committed and wanting to draw the best out of me. She uses various methods of teaching which keeps the interest going and at the same time reaffirming what has already been taught. I would definitely recommend her.
Elliot's feedback about Angela (Beginner Spanish tuition near Orpington)
Amazing Teacher!! I have been having lesson with Angela for about a year now and she is a fantastic teacher. I love her approach to teaching and how lessons are both rewarding and catered to you. To top it off Angela is a lovely and patient person who makes learning Spanish a lot of fun! So glad I found Angela through this website!
Shuaib's feedback about Angela (Advanced Spanish tuition near Orpington)
Angela has been a real saver for us. In the 12 months we have worked with Angela, my daughters written and verbal Spanish has significantly improved. Angela's style of engagement is friendly yet firm and her dedication to improving her students language skills is excellent.
Kay's feedback about Angela (Intermediate Spanish tuition near Orpington)
Our daughter was struggling with her A Level Spanish course and there were genuine concerns that she would fail. We decided to employ the services of a tutor and found Angela through FirstTutors early in 2015. Angela helped build confidence with oral work and supplied helpful strategies for written work resulting in our daughter achieving grade B. We have no doubt that Angela's enthusiasm for her own language and her commitment to our daughter was key to this success. We would highly recommend Angela for anyone wishing to learn or improve their Spanish.
Terence's feedback about Michel (Beginner French tuition near Orpington)
Michel is simply brilliant. He is very patient and understanding and has identified my style of learning. I have about 1% of understanding and knowledge of the French language. I am not perhaps the quickest person to learn a new language as I have a fairly technical mind and can not easily comprehend something unless I am able to see the mechanics behind it. I do truly believe that we are all good at something. Language is not on my list yet! However Michel can see my wiliness to learn and although I feel my progress is very slow and labour intensive, he has not once given the impression that I am a loss cause! Michel is a very pleasant man and very easy to get along with. I really look forward to my lessons, even if I come away only learning the odd word. The key to success is firstly to have an excellent tutor like Michel and secondly to have the wiliness to learn something that is completely alien to you and accept that things will be hard at times.
Sam's feedback about Michel (Intermediate French tuition near Orpington)
Michel was receptive to our learning needs and flexible around our schedule.
Frankie's feedback about Angela (Intermediate Spanish tuition near Orpington)
Our son has only had three lessons to date with Angela and we are delighted with his progress, in particular the confidence he is gaining in speaking Spanish and his improved accent, which is exactly what we requested Angela to work on with him. Thank you Angela.
