English and French Tuition in Oakham

Hi! Bonjour! Здравствуйте! Dzień dobry! My name is Michael and I have been a lover of languages for as long as I can remember. I am about to complete a BA in Modern Languages (Russian and French with Polish) from the university of Sheffield. I understand that learning a foreign language can be a daunting task, but it is also one of the most rewarding! Why not give it a go?

Tutoring Experience

2019- Present: Voluntary teacher of English as second language to Russian natives in the format of personal, one-to-one video calls.
2018-Present: President of university Creative Writing Society, in which I lead how-to style seminars, focusing on SPAG (spelling punctuation and grammar) and ideas on boosting creativity.
2017-2018: I led a Polish-learning club, where I helped people to consolidate grammatical concepts that were being introduced on our course.

2016: Russian subject prefect. In sixth form held a club for year 7s and 8s to come and learn the basics of Russian (learning the alphabet and basic introductions)

Tutoring Approach

My lessons tend to be centred around verbal communication, discussing any topic that you are interested in. This is often reinforced with grammar worksheets and information at the beginning of the session. However I am adaptable and can tailor the lessons to the your needs, abilities and wishes. For instance, if you are more interested in mastering the grammar, I am happy to lead an intense grammar-orientated lesson. Or, on the other hand, I am happy to treat the lessons as a casual, but structured, conversation, where you can pick up skills from repetition and listening. My priority is to ensure that you are comfortable as you develop your linguistic skills. :)
