I have been a Modern Languages teacher at secondary school level for 18 years and have been tutoring French and English (as a foreign language) for approximately 7 years.
I have taught students of all abilities and backgrounds in both England and Scotland. I am up-to-date with all aspects of the MFL curriculum - from primary school through to Advanced Higher. I am also familiar with the current requirements for GCSE and A level. In addition, I hold a CertTESOL for those students requiring English tuition.
First of all, I establish where exactly my tutee needs help. Then, I plan methodically for each lesson with distinct objectives in mind. I believe that learning a language involves making mistakes and then learning from them. Therefore, I always create a friendly, fun and relaxed atmosphere to ensure that my tutee benefits from the best learning environment.
