Personal Description:

Bonjour/Hola/Hello! My name is Robert and I'm an enthusiastic and friendly, well qualified and experienced teacher of French, Spanish and English based in Rickmansworth, Herts.

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. My aim as a languages teacher is to foster my pupils curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Through my teaching I enable my pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. My teaching also provides opportunities for my students to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language.

Teaching languages is something I enjoy passionately and I believe with the right support and increased confidence, students can achieve their goals in their given language.My style and approach is relaxed and informal and my aim is to focus on the students needs and to make language learning an enjoyable experience whether the student is with me for help with their school exams or whether it's a more mature student wishing to learn French or Spanish for pleasure or business reasons.

Witnessing my students become passionate about a country as they delve into its language and culture and revel in their newfound ability to communicate is uniquely rewarding.

Tutoring Experience:

I have almost 20 years of teaching experience as an employed school teacher. I have taught both in the state and independent sectors,including at two leading public schools namely Wellington College and Merchant Taylor's. I teach all levels, from complete beginners through to Common Entrance, 13+, GCSE, A level and university level as well as mature students wishing to learn a new language for the fun of it or for business purposes. In addition I'm also a GCSE examiner.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach effective examination technique. All levels. Tailor made flexibility; one to one individual tuition and small group workshops. I adjust my teaching to the needs of the individual pupil and I'm adept to covering all of the specific GCSE and A level curriculums and syllabuses.

My past and current experience in schools has given me the knowledge of the standards required at exams. I also have experience of harnessing individual learning skills and I love to make my lessons fun with a wide range of different activities. Many students ask me to help them with essay writing, preparation for oral exams, as well as of course listening, reading and grammar.

Wherever possible I try to base my language teaching on a wider understanding of the French and Spanish speaking countries, their peoples and cultures.

Witnessing my students become passionate about a country as they delve into its language and culture and revel in their newfound ability to communicate is uniquely rewarding.
