Home Tuition for French and Latin in Haslemere

I am a French graduate who has lived in France and I have taught French extensively from age 3 to adult over a period of more than 30 years. However, over the last 20 years I have taught Latin as well as French and can offer both subjects up to A Level. I am retiring from my teaching job in the summer of 2017 and will therefore have much more availability than before. Most of my tutees come from word of mouth recommendations.

Tutoring Experience

I have 30 years teaching French in schools and tutoring individuals and 20 years teaching Latin, both up to A Level standard. I have worked as an Examiner for AQA for a number of years at GCSE level. I have taught Latin at Prep school level since 1997 and at GCSE/A Level since 2005 and am familiar with most of the set texts which are part of the literature specification.I am an Examiner for A Level Latin Prose Literature for the new specification for first examination in 2018.
required so far.

Tutoring Approach

My initial approach is diagnostic. What does the tutee find difficult? Which areas does he/she wish to focus on? I will set work to do and give detailed feedback as to what and where improvements are needed.
