Toby

Edinburgh Tutor

I'm Toby, offering patient, engaging and supportive tuition in French, German and music. I have a BA Hons from Jesus College, Cambridge in Modern and Medieval Languages (French and German) and a PGCE in Modern Languages from Bristol University. I love learning languages as much as teaching them, and have since added to the list Finnish, basic Icelandic - and even a smattering of Gaelic. In addition to tutoring, I am a freelance violinist and teach violin and viola: so if you want to improve your string playing whilst practising your French, I'm your man. I'm happy to travel to any part of Edinburgh, and also to offer tuition in my home, if that's more convenient.

Tutoring Experience

I'm a fully qualified teacher of French and German and have been teaching and tutoring languages, as well as teaching the violin, for some years now.

Tutoring Approach

My approach is flexible and tutee-led: I am equally happy to go right back to basics, hone in on a particularly troublesome point of grammar or just provide general conversation practice. I have a lot of my own resources, and will produce tailor-made material to suit specific students. I will work to any exam syllabus, as required, or structure lessons according to the desired outcome.
