As a secondary teacher with additional experience of adult education and private tuition, I believe that competence in one or more foreign languages is very important for academic,work and leisure purposes. I am 57 years old and married with two grown-up sons. I enjoy singing in two choirs, walking, theatre and of course European travel!
I have taught languages for over 30 years both within the State and Independent sectors up to GCSE and 'A' Level.
I have also taught adult evening classes within Newcastle and North Tyneside, as well as doing private tuition within my local area. I am now focusing on individual tuition across my 3 languages of French, German and Spanish but will also consider group tuition. My rates are between £25 and £28 up to and including GCSE and £30-33 for 'A'Level, depending on whether I travel or the student comes to me.
I am friendly, patient and understand the needs of students as I have considerable experience of a range of GCSE/IGCSE and 'A' level syllabuses in Languages.
I consider my work with students to be a partnership, and would hope that they put as much effort into this as I do in my preparation in order to make good progress.
My approach is centred on the individual targets and ability of my students.
