Information About Janet - Twickenham tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Janet:
I am an Assistant Headteacher and fully qualified German and French teacher at a very high performing comprehensive school in West London (top 10% nationally for value added). I am passionate about language teaching and prior to being promoted in my current school to Assistant Headteacher I was Head of Languages for 12 years. The languages results were and still are excellent and have always been in the top 5% of all schools nationally. I believe that language learning should be fun, yet challenging and many of my students have gone on to study languages at University including Oxford. I believe that speaking the language spontaneously and for real purposes enables students to express themselves and access the higher grades. I also believe that students should be able to understand how the language works grammatically so that they can be accurate linguists and are able to manipulate the language.
I have excellent experience at developing exam technique and boosting exam performance to ensure that my students achieve at the very highest level. I provide a wide range of suitable and challenging resources, including past papers and mark schemes. I am very familiar with the new 9-1 GCSE French and German specifications as I have been teaching the new specification since it has been introduced. I have many resources and strategies to enable students to reach their full potential. I also work as an examiner for AQA and have marked the GCSE speaking component this year for German. I believe that visual stimulus is essential, particularly for the speaking examination as students needs to be divergent thinkers to access the higher grades.
As a languages teacher I have a high success rate and have many happy and contented students. I take tutoring very seriously and I am reliable and committed. I would recommend being contacted as early as possible for bookings so that I can accommodate you. I am also available to tutor most holiday times.
