As a qualified linguist, with a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages, I worked for several years as a senior level bilingual PA, initially for a French Canadian stockbroker in the City of London and then for the French cognac house Remy Martin, also in London. Following a move to Hertfordshire, I became PA to the Managing Director of Mothercare International - the division of Mothercare UK responsible for the company`s worldwide franchise operations. I now live in Pennine West Yorkshire with my husband and two children, and have spent the last few years teaching French and Spanish as a private tutor.
Availability: Weekdays and weekends.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Over the last few years I have spent about 20 hours a week teaching French and Spanish. My clients include children and teenagers, but my main focus has been adults, most of whom wish to learn the language because they have a holiday property in France or Spain, they visit the country regularly, they intend to move to the country, or just for fun! I have, therefore, taught at all levels - from absolute beginners to `A` level students needing a bit of extra help.

I needed to look for a Tutor For my 14 year old son so he could continue with Spanish (doing french at school but no option 2 be able 2 do 2 languages at school). We are very pleased i found Jackie. My son is enjoying his lessons & feels he is & will progress well. I would most definitely recommend Jackie

Jackie is very professional and helpful. Highly organised, takes time to understand my needs and prepares lesson plan to align. Highly recommended
My son is taking his GCSE next year. He has had a few lessons so far, and feels he has made great progress with his school work. Jackie is professional, very friendly and has tailored the lessons to meet my sons needs incredibly well. Would highly recommend.
Jackie was wonderful, very informative. Jackie breaks everything down and makes it easy to understand, just wish we had more time for more lessons.
Only two sessions so far but good
Highly recommended, extremely professional excellent tutor. My son really looks forward to his lessons and is progressing quickly.
Proactive, empathetic, understanding and excellent tutor. My son was completely turned off by the subject but Jackie is bringing him round. A result!
Excellent teacher. Well structured lessons, very good handouts and works to the pace of her pupil. She`s encouraging, pleasant to be around and very knowledgeable. Couldn`t recommend her more highly.
Really enjoying our time with Jackie, only done a couple of weeks but we`ve learnt more in this time than we thought possible. Jackie is making the lessons fun but very informative, tailoring to our needs which is so important to us. Really pleased we found her!
Jackie is an excellent tutor and her method of teaching is superb - she explains things so that you understand easily and can ask questions at any time - I would recommend her to anybody wishing to learn Spanish or French - I look forward to my lesson every week.
