John

Bellshill Tutor

I graduated in June 2013 from the University of Glasgow with a joint honours degree in French and Spanish (2:1) and in December 2014 with a Msc in Translation Studies with Merit. My subjects this year were also French and Spanish. I study many languages and I have vast experience of the best ways to learn languages. I love languages and I am passionate about opening the many opportunities of language learning to others.

Tutoring Experience

I taught English for a year in Spain in 2010-2011. It was a great opportunity to see how pupils in Spain learn the English language and it taught me many new skills. I also have nearly 3 years experience in tutoring for Standard grades, Highers and the new national 4 and 5 curriculum. All my previous students have achieved A grades.

Tutoring Approach

I focus on what the client wants. My focus is mainly on structured learning with real life skills but also to pass exams. I have a number of resources which I would hope to share so that the learner learns feels comfortable with the language, whilst learning quickly. With languages there are a number of "hacks" which allow the learner to progress at a quick pace.
