Private Online English and French Tutor

I have a Masters degree from University College London and earned a 1st Class Honours degree in English at the University of York. I have spent the last five years teaching in Spain, France and the UK, both privately and in academies. My main interests are languages and creative writing. I am also a poet and songwriter and play the piano and guitar.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching English Literature and Language for five years now, and teaching French for the past three years. I have experience working with young learners, 11+ candidates, GCSE candidates, A level students and adults. I've been a support teacher (in English Literature) in a UK secondary school and I've worked in various UK schools as a coach and workshop facilitator. As a CELTA-qualified EFL teacher, I have experience teaching English to mixed-ability, multilingual, monolingual, group and individual classes, with children and adults. To date, I've taught in Oxford, Paris, Brighton, Barcelona and Nice.

I have a particular interest in teaching music and creative writing should you be looking for personalised creative learning for your child.

Tutoring Approach

I was lucky enough to be tutored myself during my GCSEs, so I am confident in my ability to recognise effective tutoring methods. My own approach is largely dependent on the needs of the pupil, to be considered in the first lesson. I am keen for my students to take a leading role where possible, suggesting topics for the lessons and identifying their own areas for improvement. I believe this is the most rewarding approach for the student. The most important thing is that the student is comfortable with the way that the lessons are planned and taught. I think it is valuable to use set guidebooks and course books where available, but also to move away from these with more imaginative (often more creative) learning strategies, to ensure that learning is enjoyable, fulfilling, new and challenging.
