I am a retired teacher. As I no longer work in school I am available most weekdays to teach students. I enjoy contact with students,getting to know how they learn best and devising strategies to help them absorb information.
I have a Modern Languages degree and I taught for 15 years in mainstream schools. After early retirement I started to give private tuition, both in my home and at the student's. I have a wide range of experience both with individuals and small groups. I have done revision courses for GCSE in French and German, English as a Second Language (privately and for Social Services) and have worked privately for several years teaching a child with Special Needs.
I am very versatile and I especially enjoy making motivating teaching materials to suit individual needs. I realize that students learn in different ways and all have individual personalities so that the approach to learning has to be tailored to their requirements.
