Hello! I am based in Stratford upon Avon and I am able to travel within most of the Warwickshire area. I have a Joint Honours Degree in French and Spanish from Coventry University and I am passionate about languages! French is a language I love and through tutoring I am hoping to share my knowledge and improve the linguistic proficiency of my students. Although I have studied Spanish I would like to specialise in teaching French. I have over 15 years experience in industry, as my previous career was in Recruitment and Sales. I love working with people and I have lots of experience of working with individuals via training and mentoring.

Tutoring Experience

During my time at University, I taught English to Spanish adults and young people. This was achieved via group sessions and on a one to one basis. I have been tutoring students for over 5 years now in French and I have significant experience of tutoring French at GCSE level. All the students have a different proficiency in French however I am able to tailor each lesson to suit their individual needs.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is tailored to each individual. I have an open and positive approach and I am able to be flexible depending upon the needs of each individual. I feel that my tutoring sessions should be fun and promote a sense of achievement. I work very closely with each individual to understand areas of concern and we constantly evaluate our work to ensure all areas of the course are covered. I feel it is essential to form a strong working relationship and to create a stimulating environment in which to learn. I also encourage individuals to work where they feel most comfortable whether this be in their own home or at a different location.
