Passionate and enthusiastic languages teacher
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I am head of the languages department at a secondary school in Twickenham with over 14 years` experience teaching languages. I also mark for two of the main exam boards, so am well-versed in what is needed to pass the exam.
I specialise in French and Spanish.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, I`ve been teaching online. I use a variety of teaching methods to engage and enthuse students of all ages and stages including songs, authentic material and games, whilst incorporating grammar in a fun way!
I started tutoring in 2017.
I gain great personal satisfaction from helping children and young people, and seeing the ‘light-bulb moment’ happen. Languages are a subject that many pupils find difficult, and I really enjoy working through the barriers with them. I want every student to reach their full potential whilst having fun at the same time!
I adapt my teaching to each individual student but I use a mixture of authentic resources, games and songs to bring grammar to life.
I love seeing students progress and really start to enjoy languages.
Languages are for everyone.
Students appreciate my personal touch and sense of humour. I'm also extremely encouraging and patient.
Motivating extremely reluctant learners! But honestly, helping students who struggle to get to a good standard and to raise their confidence.
I have a French degree and have lived and worked in France. I have studied Spanish to A level standard.
I feel passionately about the importance of languages to young people's futures and want to communicate that passion.
I love reading, playing tennis, cycling and spending time with my children.
I teach French to A level (AQA) and Spanish to GCSE (AQA) I am also an examiner for AQA.
