Information about Loretta
I am a qualified languages teacher with over twenty years teaching experience. I have experience teaching GCSE and A Level French and I am passionate about helping students to reach their full potential. All tuition is tailored to the individual needs of each student and the majority of students choose to remain with me for over a year until they have completed their studies.
Having studied French at University and lived in Normandy, I went on to complete my PGCE at the University of Bristol. I then taught French, German and Spanish at a number of secondary schools and to all abilities. I have been doing private tuition for a number of years for students of all ages and abilities, including adults.
Availability: Any time Monday-Saturday.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have worked in a number of secondary schools teaching French at KS3, GCSE and A Level. Additionally, I have lots of experiece doing 1:1 tutoring at home and abroad for GCSE and A level, as well as Common Entrance. As a qualified MFL teacher I have also taught German and Spanish at primary school and KS3 level.
I have also taught adults, from beginners to intermediate and beyond, which I find very satisfying. There are many people who have had poor experiences of language teaching at school and who as adults, get great satisfaction from conquering a language.
I am very knowledgable about current exam board syllabuses, and have an extensive range of material to guide students through exams. All my students go on to exceed teacher predicted grades and I am delighted that some have gone on to study languages at University.

Feedback For Loretta (3)
Loretta is brilliant! We started lessons with Loretta just a couple of months ago for our daughter, year 11. She was struggling with A Level French after cancelled GCSE`s and finding it hard being in a class full of students from French speaking families. I can honestly say that Loretta has taken our daughter up a couple of levels and massively improved her confidence in a very short time. Loretta got our daughter to catch up very quickly on grammar and vocab, improve her speaking and listening dramatically, and, in particular, she was able to empathize, inspire and give really valuable advice on how to stay calm and maximize marks in an exam. The transformation in our daughter is amazing. We just cannot recommend Loretta highly enough!! Thank you so much. Rod
Very helpful tutor. I am studying A Level French. Loretta has helped me a great deal more than I expected, and has devoted lots of her time outside of the lessons to gathering resources to help me in my A Level.
Thank you, Loretta :-) Rachel
