I am a qualified Modern Languages Teacher specialising in Spanish (although i am able to offer French to GCSE level) with experience of teaching across the 3-18 age group as well as adults who wish to learn for social and professional purposes.
After completing an MA Honours Degree in Spanish (Which covered Language, Politics, History and Translation), during which I also studied French as an additional subject during University, I subsequently completed a PGCE in Modern Languages, leading to Qualified Teacher Status and have since worked within schools and more recently through private tuition.
I have always worked within inclusive schools, therefore I am able to differentiate work to support high and low ability students, as well as those with Behavioural and Learning difficulties. I believe languages should be accessible to everyone, and I am passionate about doing whatever possible to make sure my students can access the curriculum with confidence and enjoyment.
My work as a private tutor, involves supporting students with exam preparation, students may need deeper grounding in the language, adults who need a language to boost their professional profile and students who need support, starting from the very basics. I have had great success with this with some students moving 3 whole grades in the space of 3 months. ( I am happy to provide references if required).
Don`t worry if you are a total beginner, a student who is struggling with their school work, or someone who has a desire to gain a new skill as an adult. Just give it a go, contact me and let`s see if we can make this an enjoyable and worthwhile experience!

I have primarily worked with GCSE and A-Level students for most exam boards (namely AQA and Edexcel) including helping prep students for the new GCSE, and supporting A-Level students with the literature component of their exam, as well as the oral exam.
In addition I have offered private tuition for undergraduate students, whilst completing my MA degree supporting them with Translation.
Finally I have worked with adults who wish to learn a new skill for social and leisure purposes, as well as others who wish to learn a language boost their professional profile.
