I studied French, Latin and German at university and have a BA 2.1 Hons degree in languages. I have always been very interested in languages and I find it extremely stimulating to motivate individual pupils to enjoy them and to understand them.

Tutoring Experience

I have 25 years of teaching experience in both the state and the private sector. I have taught French from prep school/primary age through to GCSE and A level across the age and ability range. I have also taught Latin and German through to GCSE and am familiar with the French and German iGCSE syllabus. I have also tutored privately in all these areas of expertise for 20 years and achieved excellent results with students consistently overachieving.

Tutoring Approach

I spend time establishing a good rapport with each individual pupil to boost confidence. I prepare interesting material to encourage my pupils to learn and tailor my worksheets to their specific requirements. Where relevant, I produce powerpoints to explain grammatical structures.
