I teach children of almost all ages, starting with those at pre-school/primary school, through to those studying GCSEs on to sixth-formers studying for A levels.
I help those who are going on holiday, regularly spend time in French- or Spanish-speaking countries, or those who want to live abroad.
I train organisations to acquire and improve the language skills of individuals and teams, enabling them to converse more confidently in the workplace, in both Spanish and French.
I have lived and worked in France and Spain – and have over twenty years’ experience of language teaching in schools, colleges and universities across the West Midlands. I have delivered a wide range of courses, including GCSE, A-level and International Baccalaureate – as well as on HND and degree programmes.
I am degree-qualified in both languages, have a Certificate in Education and a Diploma in Business Spanish from the Spanish Chamber of Commerce.
I’m fully checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), which was previously known as Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).
I can teach one to one or groups of people at your home, school, business or at my home. I can offer everything from non-examination tuition to more academic courses for GCSE and A-level, working to suit the learners’ schedule and progressing at their own pace.
My rates depend on the level of learning and the number of classes needed. Please contact me to have a chat about your needs.
Spanish and French language tutor
With a passion for learning and speaking foreign languages, and over twenty years experience of teaching them, I have always ensured that my enthusiasm for language learning is instilled in all of my students, both past and present.
Initially my career began as a lecturer at several further education colleges and universities in the West Midlands, prior to becoming a private tutor. I have also taught French and Spanish clubs in primary and pre-schools – as well as delivering language training to blue-chip companies such as Goodyear Dunlop and Rover Group.
As a former examiner of GCSE and A level French, I am familiar with the demands of an examination syllabus and fully understand what is required to achieve a good grade. I have proven success helping my students to do this.
