review(s) for Aaron.
Aaron was really thoughtful when he was unable to fit me into his schedule by providing the name of another tutor who would be able to provide lessons.
I have since commenced lessons with the tutor Aaron was able to link me with. My tutor made sure before the lesson what level I was and asked what I already know so she could prepare appropriate work for me. That was brilliant, as it meant we would commence the lesson straight away when I arrived.
My tutoring has been absolutely amazing, and I cant imagine being where I am today without my tutors help. Not only is his friendly and approachable nature really encouraging for you to try your best but also you feel free to ask questions about the language. The way he tailors his teaching style to your needs is really helpful and effective. I always look forward to my sessions, as he makes sure to do a range of activities and exercises every time to expand and improve on all areas of your language skills, but also to ensure its always kept interesting. His attentive teaching style also ensures that if theres something in particular youre not sure on or struggle with, he will happily spend an hour on it to make sure that youre confident in everything you learn. Since I have been taught by Aaron (2 hours every week) my A-level language course has become so much easier, and I have improved from a C average to getting A`s now, as he has helped me to understand and really begin to speak the language. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is either struggling with languages (which was myself a few months ago) and needs some help to boost your confidence/ability, or even if youre wanting to be even better and to challenge yourself, as he is great with all capabilities.
Clear and precise German Tuition. The German tutor is knowledgeable and goes at a pace comfortable for my learning. The German tuition covers the basics, you might need to know, and the tutor assists with pronunciation of words, which is very useful. I am taking a trip to Germany again and I feel that I could put a few things into practice. I have my lessons over Skype, as this worked best for my learning. The German Tutor is friendly, and I enjoy each lesson I have. It would be suitable for people, all stages, or knowledge of the German language. I highly recommend.
I have been receiving excellent French tuition over Skype. My tutor is very clear and concise and really helps me in structuring my essays. He also focuses a lot on my weaker areas of grammar, which I have come to learn are a bigger part of French exams than I had initially thought. When going through an exercise, my tutor will highlight words/phrases that I have gotten wrong and give me a chance to correct them myself, which I have found very useful. All lesson timings and work that I need to do are clearly stated, and for the few times I have needed to rearrange our Skype lessons, my tutor has been very accommodating.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Bespoke Languages Tuition.
Aaron has been teaching Spanish for our son for his GCSE. We are very pleased with the progress he is making. Good teaching methods and professional approach. Excellent tutor. I would highly recommend Spanish tuition with Aaron. Lessons with Skype is convenient and effective too
An excellent choice for me, as I have found, as an adult learner, exactly what I was looking for. Very satisfied!
I can genuinely say that Aaron is the best teacher I have ever had. I found him only 3 weeks before my interviews but his dedication and motivation were amazing and we managed to cover so much, including works by Lorca, Márquez and Camus. He has taught me not only to analyse texts but also to enjoy the process, a task that used to be very daunting, and he has made grammar that was previously difficult and complex seem perfectly simple! By having lessons over Skype, I was still able to continue with lessons when I was abroad. I cannot speak highly enough of him and I couldnt recommend anyone better for Oxbridge Spanish and French tuition.
After having had Aaron as a French tutor for a month now and I would safely say that I have made considerable progress as a consequence. Immediately Aaron was able to recognise weaker areas in my ability and thus provide productive and focused sessions to combat these problems. I have gathered not only more confidence in French, but excellent advice on such things as grammar, pronunciation, common mistakes and many more various skills. After looking back over a months worth of sessions, I have surprised myself how quickly I have progressed in French and would without a doubt recommend Aaron as a tutor to anyone seeking tuition in languages.
As an adult learner, I find learning with my Spanish tutor from BLT very enjoyable and effective. He shows a true passion for the subject, and empathy for the struggles with learning a second (or in my case third) language. Each session is structured with clear learning objectives that motivate me to strive for best results. With interactive games, this Spanish tutor makes language learning actually fun and memorable. Most importantly, mistakes are not merely corrected, but explained and revisited to ensure long-lasting understanding. For faster progression and independent learning, sessions are also supported with high quality exercise books. By offering a mix of online and offline tuition, he manages to stay flexible with his students and reach a good agreement for both parties. Easily the best Spanish tuition I`ve ever received, and I thank him for all my success.
I was very impressed with the German tutor as my son had an exam within a couple of days of the tutoring and needed a quick `booster` session. My son learnt a huge amount in just one lesson and it really helped.
very efficient with sorting out a tutor with times that suited me, up until my exam.
Aaron has been an amazing tutor in aiding my daughters progress in her A-level course. He has helped her develop both her vocabulary and her grammar but more importantly her confidence, which is vital.
Aaron is a great tutor that has really help me with my french by focusing on a grammar and giving me greater confidence.
My son started tuition in June of this year. After the first tutorial with Aaron he said he felt he had learned more in the session than he had all year. He really likes the one to one, the constructive criticism and being spoken to as a young adult. His confidence has grown tremendously and he has moved from the foundation to the higher paper and is gaining top marks. Not once has he moaned about having to put in the extra hours or the tutorials and because he recognises the benefit he looks forward to them. Most importantly, he has become enthusiastic about learning languages and has enrolled on a language course at sixth form college.
Aaron is coaching my daughter to support her A level French studies and hopefully secure a top grade. He is very personable and thorough and the Skype session format and his teaching style suits her particularly well. So far very definitely so good.
I have used Aaron for 3 months and have seen an outstanding improvement in my own understanding of Spanish and learnt a vast amount of vocabulary .He straight away pointed out my weaknesses in my Spanish , which was my grammar and tenses , and we addressed them together straight away .He uses a wide range of techniques using a variety of websites and learning literature.I do homework to ensure I have a full understanding before progressing onto the next topic. I believe he has improved all aspects of my Spanish and continues to improve my preparation for my examinations in the upcoming weeks.I believe my tutor is perfect for me as he possesses all the grammatical knowledge and a great understanding of the language to assist me in adapting my casual Spanish , learnt from my families upbringing , into grammatically correct Spanish and providing me with a full understanding of grammar and array of vocabulary to improve my examination results .
Excellent Spanish tuition. Each lesson has been structured and clearly planned. I now feel much more confident with all aspects of communicating in Spanish. I would highly recommend this great value, professional and tailored service!
I have been using Aaron for 2 weeks now and he is excellent in every way. Reliable, patient, a great communicator and although in early days is making a real improvement to my sons understanding of Spanish.
Very happy to date.
My son has been inspired by Aaron French tutoring.My son said I dont mind giving up my free time to learn French. Yet at school he struggles.
I`ve been extremely happy with the service and wouldn`t hesitate to recommend your service.
Aaron has been excellent. He has really helped my daughter.
