Personal Description:

Hello! My name is Debbie, I am 40 years old and I live in Ipswich, Suffolk, which is my home town. I'm enthusiastic, have a good sense of humour and make lessons as enjoyable as possible. I love to travel and language learning. I have spent a year abroad studying French in Pau, France, and Spanish in Murcia, Spain. I'm currently learning Greek, so I completely understand the trials and tribulations of learning a language. I have recently had books of language resources published by Linguascope.com and have a logical and lateral puzzles book in French being published soon.
I'm available for tutoring at my address, (or within easy cycling distance from my home). I charge £5 extra for tutoring outside of my home. I will happily teach anyone at any level from absolute beginner to A-level in French and absolute beginner to A-Level in Spanish. I am also happy to coach English as a foreign language at any level.

Tutoring Experience:

I'm a fully qualified teacher (QTS) with thirteen year's experience of teaching French and Spanish up to A-level in Suffolk comprehensive schools. I have been a lead teacher for Spanish and also Head of Department. At one school, I implemented a successful absolute beginner to GCSE Spanish course in 20 months for students. Results spoke for themselves with many students achieving A and A* grades.
I have a full enhanced DBS (CRB) certificate.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to adapt my tutoring to the strengths and weaknesses of my students. I plan lessons to cover all four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing, and use a wide range of resources.
I feel it is important for students to understand the end goal, so therefore will usually dedicate the first lesson to understanding the exam specification and establish their current level in order to move forward.
I try to inspire confidence and a love for language learning.
