Liverpool Tutor

Hello, my dear friend,

Please choose me as your tutor, according to my skills, teaching, research profile and human qualities. I am flexible to travel, free of charge, in Liverpool and Merseyside, but also for a small fee, to Wirral, Lancashire, Cheshire, greater Manchester and to other North West England, North Wales and Midlands England destinations. I have a multidisciplinary background, from literature and foreign languages to philosophy, religious studies and communication. I graduated my Ph.D. at University of Paris, Sorbonne, recognized and considered by NARIC comparable to British Doctor of Philosophy degree (Ph.D.) standard. I have also obtained a post-doctoral fellowship at University of Edinburgh (The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities) and taught and studied in India and Romania, both at university and high school levels. I have a Certificate in Spanish obtained from Instituto Cervantes. At present, I work in a French research project at University of Liverpool, School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies, Department of Modern Languages (French). I taught French at high school level. I have studied German since I was 6 years old in a German school. I have often traveled to Italy, Spain, France and Germany, having learned these foreign languages both from books and from lived experience in these countries. I own a Certificate for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in the UK and a CRB. I have an extensive teaching experience in the UK as an MFL supply teacher (French, Spanish and German) and as a cover supervisor in various area of the Humanities in several colleges and high schools from Liverpool, Merseyside, Wirral, Cheshire, Lancashire and greater Manchester. I've been successfully tutoring MFL for GCSE and A Level Exams and Tests, also Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning and English (Foreign Language).

Tutoring Approach

My training style is very interactive, combining theoretical with live examples. I teach with or without support, while acknowledging that having a visual support proves to help audience internalize better the information given. I support a combination of training practices, combining self training and one to one coaching solutions, enabling the trainee to practice and learn in different ways.

I can either come to your place for the tutoring lessons or you please come to my place in Liverpool. I can help you with assignments.
