I'm a highly qualified and very experienced teacher of French and German, from early stages through to University entrance level. I've worked in many different schools and supported learners right across the ability range. As a tutor I've worked with individual adults and groups seeking to improve their conversational skills as well as with many young people preparing for public examinations. I'm also a senior examiner for a major examinations board and the author of MFL textbooks.
Tutoring allows the learner that individual focus and targeted learning which can really overcome difficulties and lead to much more enjoyment of the language, as well as to examination success. My teaching style is relaxed, cooperative and interactive, while also being purposeful and aspirational. I want my students to work hard, enjoy what they're learning and to make the measurable progress which encourages them to keep aiming high.
