I am a 53 year old teacher of Spanish and French. I am married to a Peruvian and have 2 grown up stepsons. I love languages and really enjoy teaching them to others. I am a very patient and tolerant person and love to see students blossom as they gain confidence in the language of their choice.
I love animals, reading, walking, cooking and football!
I have taught Spanish and French for 30 years in secondary schools, 10 years as head of department. I have expert subject knowledge and a huge amount of experience teaching examinations. I have up to date knowledge of the latest exam requirements and good practice.
I also taught for 5 years in a middle school, have experience of teaching adults at an evening class and , of course, home tutoring.
I see tutoring as a partnership between myself and my tutees. I work hard to give them the best chances of success whether they are aiming to pass an exam or are learning a language for pleasure. In return, I expect the tutees to work equally as hard to ensure that they succeed.
