Information about Lorraine

I have retired from full time teaching and a career in senior management, but love using my experience in a relaxed, informal setting to help individual learners, or small groups of learners, to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding.

Helping people to learn something new, or get even better at something they can already do, is the most rewarding aspect of being a teacher. We all know what it feels like to struggle with something new, and experience has taught me that the best way to learn is to feel relaxed and to enjoy the experience. That`s why I have always sought to find interesting, fun ways of supporting my learners.

I have many interests, particularly music (all genres), animals and the countryside. France is probably my spiritual home - I love the country, the culture, the language. Two years ago I achieved a small personal ambition: I was taken for a French person when I was in France!

Availability: I am flexible - and can accommodate the needs of most people. It`s one of the benefits of being retired!

After School

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have taught a range of subjects (to both young and adult learners) at various levels during my career. I spent many years working in schools, teaching Modern Languages (French and German), becoming Head of Faculty, then Senior Teacher and Deputy Headteacher, before deciding to branch out into other areas of interest. I undertook some free lance consultancy work in performance management for the DfE. I also spent five interesting years with the Police Service, training new recruits and also running courses in Coaching and Development and Core Leadership Skills.

I returned to my roots for a couple of years, before I retired, working as a manager and tutor in college of further education. There, I taught ESOL, Literacy and Functional Skills English. Communication skills are so important in every facet of our lives, but particularly now that the job market is so tough.

Tim (Mr)

5/5 Rating

I really enjoyed Lorraine’s tuition and despite only having three lessons and having never learnt French before I was able to introduce myself and make simple requests. The tuition also helped me learn more on my own and also have me confidence in speaking. A lovely environment to learn.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your lovely feedback, Tim. I enjoyed our lessons too! You did really well to pick up as much as you did in just 3 lessons, and I hope your time in France will enable you to build on your knowledge.

Lorraine is a very helpful tutor who was happy to help me learn the way that works best for me, and clearly put a lot of work into the lessons preparing sheets etc. Her style is fun and I always enjoy the lessons!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave some lovely feedback. It`s such a pleasure to teach someone who enjoys learning....and has such aptitude. It makes my job fun and so easy! The icing on the cake will be when you use your French on your travels.

Dorota (Miss)

5/5 Rating

Lorraine is an amazing teacher and I was very fortunate to have her as my tutor. She has identified my biggest problems with the pronunciation at the first session and prepared the whole scheme of work for me. Every single lesson was relevant and she made an effort to keep it interesting - we have done some reading, listening, recording. Lorraine has an ability to describe things in a very simple way and explain the rules behind. Apart of being a great tutor she is also a genuine and warm person!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, Dorota. I have to say, teaching is easy and great fun when you have such a committed and able learner! Thank you!

Lorraine is an excellent teacher, very patient and encouraging. I would highly recommend her to other students. I have found my first 6 lessons very enjoyable and now feel so much more confident with my french, especially my pronunciation!

Tutors Response :

Hi Angela,
Thank you so much for your feedback - much appreciated! Have a lovely trip to France speak as much as you can and enjoy your first steps to building a new life there! Hope to see you when you`re back.
Best wishes to you both,
