Information About Jillian - Renfrew tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Jillian:
Languages are my life! I am very passionate about all things French and teaching French and Spanish is my raison d'etre. I work in Inverclyde and have done for the past 14 years. I am enthusiastic and young at heart and would consider myself extremely responsive to each individual's study needs. I completed an additional teaching qualification in Spanish 6 years ago which has been both a pleasure and a challenge. I live in the West End of Glasgow and enjoy holidaying in France and Spanish-speaking countries. My pupils at school would probably describe me as firm but fair!
I graduated in 1999 from Strathclyde University and have been teaching French ever since. I have taught all levels from Primary 6 - S6. This is my fourth year teaching Advanced Higher French and I have taught Higher French for 12 years. I also mark National 5 papers for the SQA. I am always extremely proud of the certificated results I achieve. I have taught N5 Spanish for 2 years and Higher Spanish for 1 year. I am also a verifier for the SQA for N5 and Higher Spanish. I taught in several schools in Glasgow before I got my permanent contract in Inverclyde. I have privately tutored in the past.
I have a wealth of resources at my fingertips and would be happy to provide extra materials for my tutee. I would expect learning or written/ reading homework to be done on a weekly basis and we would go over it during the lesson. Exam techniques will be discussed and practised as well as vocabulary learning, activities to learn and test verb and practice in all 4 skill areas of modern languages: reading, listening, speaking and writing. I am happy for my tutee to bring any school homework they need to complete and I can check over work undertaken at home.
