Personal Description:

I am an enthusiastic and motivated individual who is passionate about the importance of language learning and all its academic and social benefits. Languages are a core skill needed for today's world which is a much smaller place with advances in technology. Learning a foreign language and its culture develops your understanding of the world around you and helps you become a more confident individual with better communication skills.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 9 years of teaching experience in Scottish schools and have held my current post as a teacher of French at Tynecastle High School for 6 years. I have taught all of the SQA qualifications from Access 3 to Advanced Higher in this time. In addition, I have been an SQA marker for 3 years and have developed a deeper understanding of exam skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I base my teaching style around the learner in front of me. My wealth of experience allows me to develop personalised lessons so they can meet their full potential. I have an excellent grasp of ICT and have my own iPad to enhance lessons and help bring the language to life. I aim to use a variety of teaching tools to keep the focus on challenge and enjoyment.
