I'm a friendly and patient tutor offering GCSE and A-Level tuition in French and Spanish. I recently graduated from Royal Holloway University of London with First Class Honours in BA French and Spanish, a Distinction in my French oral and the Florence Terry Memorial Prize for achievement in French. Between 2015 and 2016 I studied at universities abroad in Dijon, France and Salamanca, Spain, and after finishing my degree I moved home to Norwich to begin an MA in Applied Translation Studies at the UEA. As a recent languages graduate, I have a wide and up-to-date knowledge of formal and colloquial French and Spanish and I am very understanding of the challenges students face when learning foreign languages, whether they struggle with learning grammar or are afraid of speaking out loud in oral exams. I teach various techniques I have learnt to overcome these issues and I aim to help students build their confidence in a calm environment. I have experience of teaching content from a range of exam boards and I use my own resources to tailor each class to a student's individual needs and learning style. I offer tuition from my home in Eaton, but I am willing to travel to give tuition within two miles.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Rachel is an amazing find!
She is down to earth, friendly and approachable and immediately put my daughter, who was very much lacking in confidence with French, at ease.
She is amazingly well organised, always arriving with pre prepared work sheets based on the syllabus specification, which must take her hours of her own time and made especially for my daughter, which is so kind and thoughtful of her.
She is very knowledgeable, extremely patient and a very skilled teacher whether in terms of conversational skills, listening skills or written work.
My daughter's French in all areas has improved dramatically since Rachel has been helping her - we really couldn't recommend her more highly !
Perfect tutor! Very friendly and personable. Subject knowledge is excellent and has the ability to share her knowledge and passion for language. Delighted that we have found her.
