Private English and French Tuition in Hove

Hello parents and carers!! I'm an enthusiastic, reliable and dedicated teacher with a passion for languages. I am a Certified Tutor as recognised by Training Qualifications UK, who are OFQUAL regulated. I am also a qualified teacher with QTS and a TESOL. I have been tutoring for years!

I am a bilingual foreigner: born in Italy, lived in South Africa and moved to England in 2012. I am thus a native speaker of Italian and English, with a British/South African accent. I studied French from the age of 10 onwards, so I am a fluent French speaker.

I have many years of experience teaching primary and secondary students as well as adults!

Tutoring Experience

Teaching in state schools and tutoring since 2012.
I have taught MFL (French, Italian and Spanish) from Year 7 to Year 13.
I have tutored children as young as 2, working with gifted learners and SEN such as dyslexia and autism.
In tutoring I have focused on Literacy and Numeracy, French and Italian for beginners and intermediate students.
I have also taught English at 3 summer schools and several private schools for English as a Foreign Language.

My qualifications: Level 3 in Tutor Training, PGCE in English and Modern Foreign Languages, Trinity CertTESOL for teaching English as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach

Tailored to the individual's needs. The first step is always for me to ask about the student's experience, goals, fears and requirements. From there I will tailor a program that suits that specific person, bearing in mind also their age.

Online and face-to-face. 1:1 and small groups.
