Information about Wendy
I am a teacher of French and Spanish with many years experience in both the state and private sectors. I also lived and worked as an EFL teacher in France and Spain for 3 years. Although I am happy to teach at any level, GCSE and A level French and Spanish are my specialities and I have extensive experience as a GCSE, AS and A2 oral examiner. Most recently, I have taught the new specification `AS` and `A` level in both French and Spanish. If you need help in any aspect of language learning, I offer considerable expertise and a love of language teaching and learning, along with a professional and friendly approach.
Availability: Flexible to suit your needs. I shall, however, be away from 6th to 26th September.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: Having completed my Modern Languages degree at Durham University, I worked in publishing before training as a teacher at Cambridge University. I have taught both French and Spanish from year 4 up to GCSE and A level. Having trained in TEFL, I taught for English for 2 years in San Sebastián, Spain and for 1 year in Angers, France. I have also had experience in one-to-one tutoring, mainly to help students to prepare for their GCSE and A level speaking exams and in addition to this, I have run day and evening classes for adult learners.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Wendy (8)
Really helpful teacher
I thoroughly enjoyed my Spanish lessons with Wendy; I could not recommend her enough! Having never studied Spanish before I was apprehensive about my intensive University course, but Wendy soon put my nerves at rest. She was very patient with me and I never felt afraid to ask questions. Explanations were always clear, with the bonus of wonderful anecdotes on Spanish culture thrown in along the way. Wendy is a fantastic tutor and I would defiantly go back to her if I wanted to top up on my Spanish skills.
Wendy was really organised and well prepared; she was very familiar with the syllabus and the changes to the exam format.
My daughter found the sessions with Wendy really helpful and they definitely made a positive difference to her final A level grade.
Wendy is a terrific tutor, she is interested and very knowledgable as well as very keen to adapt to each student`s needs.
Wendy is simply excellent in every way! I am a somewhat apprehensive adult learner, totally new to the language. Wendy has made me feel very comfortable, We progress at my speed and I look forwards to my lessons each week. Professional, experienced, informative and fun!
My daughter has found Wendy`s AS and A2 tuition exceptionally helpful. She has many years teaching experience and is very knowledgable about the exam board requirments. My daughter actually looks forward to her extra lessons every week. Thank you Wendy!
We feel very fortunate to have found Wendy. At our first meeting she took the time to talk to our son about his learning goals, listened to him and has set tasks accordingly. Wendy is extremely knowledgable about her subject and has quickly built a rapport with our 17 year old son, who describes her as `brilliant` and feels he is already making good progress.
Wendy responds quickly to our messages, is reliable and flexible about times to meet.
We cannot recommend Wendy highly enough.
Mrs Wendy Braithwaite is professional and punctual. My daughter finds her easy to understand and has learn a considerable amount in a very short space of time. She is having assistance with her Gcse Spanish this coming summer.
