Personal Description:

Hello! I'm Matt and I've just moved to Bristol to study a Masters course at the university. My love for foreign languages began when I first started learning French in secondary school.

Since then I've achieved a 2.i degree in French and German at the University of Cambridge, spent a year living and working in Paris and another working as a Language Assistant at The Skinners' School, a top grammar school in Kent.

At Skinners' I taught GCSE and A-Level pupils and I can easily adapt my teaching towards these exams, having achieved A*s in A-level and GCSE French and German myself. (Remembering of course that there is much more to learning a language than passing tests… !)

I also offer mock interviews for applications to languages degrees at Oxford and Cambridge.

A first trial lesson is free with no obligation to continue so don't hesitate to get in touch!

Tutoring Experience:

I spent a year working as a Language Assistant at The Skinners` School in Tunbridge Wells, where I ran French and German conversation classes and revision sessions for groups of one to five pupils aged 15 to 18, in addition to private tutoring experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I think that any kind of study should be driven by the pupil's interests and needs and guided by the teacher, so I am very flexible in running lessons. I can provide extra support for your current schoolwork, devise a personal programme to work on weaker areas or help you practice your spoken French (or a combination of the three!)

I believe that a good understanding of grammar is key to being able to use a language - as opposed to learning and repeating stock phrases - so I'm always keen to work on this if it could be of use to you. I try to break grammar points down to the basics and explain them in a straightforward way to demystify them; grammar can sometimes seem intimidating at first glance but approached the right way anyone can get their head around it!
