Degree: Modern Languages (Bachelors) - Durham University
French, Spanish & Italian are all languages which I'm passionate about, having studied them to degree level and spent time living in each country, so I want to make them more interesting and accessible for all students, putting them in real contexts. Languages don't need to be complicated, as people are often scared by grammar, so I believe the best way to learn is through practising by speaking, not through repeating rules over and over. As I have also studied language teaching theory as part of my degree, you can be confident that I'm using the most effective methods to help you acquire a foreign language, with tricky grammar tackled in innovative ways.
I can offer classes in all three languages up to A-Level in a relaxed yet focused atmosphere, focusing mainly on speaking skills, but also helping to develop vocabulary, grammar and writing, whilst working through effective exam techniques and revision strategies. I'm also happy to introduce students to the culture through the language, making learning more enjoyable and stimulating whatever their needs may be.
These are the exam boards with which I took my own exams, so I am confident with the format and the kinds of questions asked. However, I also have experience of tutoring for the Cambridge IGCSE and the King's Scholarship exam, as well as teaching Spanish from scratch, so I can easily accommodate any exam boards' requirements.
-GCSE French & Spanish: AQA
-GCSE Italian: Edexcel
-A-Level French & Spanish: AQA
-A-Level Italian: Edexcel
I am generally very flexible, with most evenings and weekends available for tutoring, but I prefer to negotiate tutoring slots on a week-by-week basis to accommodate for upcoming commitments and changes to my schedule. After each tutorial, I always get in contact immediately to arrange the date and time for the next one.
I look forward to working with you!
