My name is Rebecca and I am a qualified and experienced languages teacher in secondary education. I hold an upper-class honours degree (2:1) in English Literature and French from the University of Birmingham, including a Distinction in spoken French, and qualifications in MFL Education to Masters level. I am friendly, hard-working and highly passionate about languages and hold expertise teaching French at KS3, GCSE and A level as well as Spanish to KS3.
I completed my teacher training with 'Outstanding' teaching, before working for three years as a Teacher of French and Spanish in two London schools. I now work as a passionate MFL teacher and private tutor in Birmingham.
As a result, I have significant experience in private foreign language tutoring as well as an extensive knowledge of the national curriculum and examination requirements for French up to A-level and Spanish to KS3. Since I currently teach the new GCSE specification, I also have an in-depth understanding of the most recent requirements for these new and more challenging examinations, making me highly suited to supporting secondary school students who are due to take their GCSEs in the coming years.
I believe that motivation, a sense of achievement and fun are essential to the successful learning of languages and I instil this into my teaching approach. I also work to adapt my teaching style and tailor lessons to suit the aims, needs and learning styles of my students. I have strong skills in the planning, organisation and delivery of language learning and am able to teach to prepare students for an examination, or simply to further a student's skills and passion for a language.

Rebecca teaches MFL, she has always been professional and friendly and was like a breath of fresh air.
She always delivered structured teaching in time and she knew exactly how to tackle my daughter’s weakness according to current curriculum. She gave plenty of learning materials and homework for my daughter.
My daughter has made huge progress in a short time and said that Rebecca is the best French teacher she has ever had.
The sessions were completed by Skype which was brilliant as it meant no extra travelling and homework and materials could be sent easily, the whole process was a joy and I would have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca if you are looking for a French tutor.
