Information about Jane
I am a native Spanish speaker and lived in Spain for 12 years where I became a very proficient and experienced TEFL(Teaching English as a Foreign Language) tutor working with primary, secondary and adults on a one-to-one and small group basis. I also developed some Business English courses for a local college.
My degree in Management Studies and French and 3 years living in France allowed me to further develop and perfect my fluency in French. In France I gained experience tutoring to different groups of students, from secondary and pre-University to ski instructors.
I also lived in Shanghai for 3 years which gave me a perfect opportunity to achieve an intermediate level in Mandarin.
In the U.K., I have been tutoring students in
French and Spanish at GCSE level, focusing on fluency in speaking, grammar and use of the correct expressions. Working as a teaching assistant in secondary gave me an insight into the curriculum in GCSE and A level Spanish and French.
I believe in working with the student and personalizing their tuition from the very beginning.
My goal is to build the students confidence and motivation as well as develop their fluency and understanding in the foreign language.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been teaching English as a Foreign language abroad for 15 years and private tutor in Spanish and French. Experience working in Secondary schools at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A level in French, Spanish and Mandarin.

Jane has been tutoring my daughter for nearly a year with IGCSE French and she is expected to achieve level 5.

She knows the curriculum
Both my children are tutored in English. They both say that they love working with Mrs Jane and look forward to her lessons. It has made them more confident, and has helped them to better they`re communication skills.
Jane knows her French and Spanish
Only had Jane for a couple of weeks so far but is already giving my 12 year old so much confidence in the ability to learn Spanish, would highly recommend Jane as a tutor, listens and prepares the lessons well to the need of the student
This is probably the third or fourth time that I`ve tried to relaunch my French learning and the first time that I may actually succeed! Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and patient and not at all like a `teacher` which is just what I needed to kickstart my French learning again.
