Personal Description:

I have always loved the 3 languages which I studied at school (French, Spanish and Latin) and which I then continued to study at University. They have enriched my life and I believe that everybody benefits from learning a foreign language. I have lived and taught in France and also completed an additional super-intensive Spanish course in Salamanca. The three languages I have studied and taught all complement each other.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught Modern Foreign Languages for over 20 years to KS3, GCSE and AS/A2 Level, having worked in 2 outstanding schools in Essex; a single sex selective school and a co-educational school in the independent sector. I have also worked in comprehensive schools and have taught all ages and abilities. As such, I have an excellent knowledge of the curriculum and experience of preparing students for public examinations, including Oxbridge entrance. I taught Latin to KS3 over a period of 10 years. I am also a private tutor and have Examining Board experience. I am currently working as a Tutor to Key Stages 3,4 and 5, as well as in a business environment. Several of my tutees are adults who are wanting to improve their fluency and understanding of the language. I am also preparing students for GCSE Latin and for Common Entrance Scholarship examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

Personal tuition is very rewarding as it offers the possibility of addressing specific areas of difficulty encountered by the student. Greater awareness of examination technique and attention to grammatical accuracy can be highlighted and can make a huge difference to individual performance. With personal attention, a student can be really motivated and encouraged to achieve his/her goals and potential, often finding the confidence to enjoy and appreciate languages more. I enjoy seeing this process at work and have great empathy with my students.
