About me

While conscientious and hard-working, I am also very personable and enthusiastic. As a student myself, I am well acquainted with the challenges involved in studying modern foreign languages, and so can easily identify with students and aid them in overcoming these difficulties. Aside from languages, I am also very passionate about the creative arts - in particular, dance, drama and music.

As a student myself, I am well acquainted with the challenges involved in studying modern foreign languages, and so can easily identify with students and aid them in overcoming these difficulties. Aside from languages, I am also very passionate about the creative arts - in particular, dance, drama and music.


Whilst in Paris on my Year Abroad, I taught weekly classes to primary level french students learning English with Anglofun Schools. I continued tutoring languages privately to GCSE students via Skype whilst I was in Madrid studying. Throughout A levels, I worked as a private tutor in French and Spanish and taught a wide range of ages: from primary school students to retirees. Within my secondary school, however, I tutored GCSE students in French as part of my modern foreign language prefecture role. I also mentored younger students with comprehension difficulties.

While maintaining a level of professionalism, I like to make my students feel as comfortable as possible so that they can achieve their full academic potential. Every lesson plan is tailored to the individual student's needs, with a clear structure and a defined objective. My lessons are always varied so as to ensure the student is both challenged and intellectually stimulated; however, in every lesson, I am to incorporate listening, reading, writing and oral activities, as these four skills are paramount in successful language learning.


To measure the student's progress, there will be "mini exams" every 8 weeks which will test the student on content learned over the previous two months. There will be a 5 sections: vocabulary, grammar, written comprehension, listening and written expression. There will be a separate oral test every 8 weeks which will be topic-related. The aim of these mini tests is to recapitulate new content learned, which can then be used later as a useful revision resource.
