Information about Patricia

I am a linguist with a first class degree in French and Italian from Bath University and also A Level Spanish. After working as a translator for a couple of years, I trained to teach English as a Foreign Language and completed the RSA Diploma while teaching in Rome. As well as teaching EFL, French, Italian and Spanish at an FE/HE college and giving private tuition, I have also worked extensively in the business world, always using my language skills on a daily basis, particularly Spanish and French.

Availability: Currently available during the day and early evening, but not after 6.30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Weekends are also possible.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I worked for over 10 years at Farnborough College of Technology teaching English as a Foreign Language at all levels up to Proficiency, French A Level (evening class) and Italian and Spanish at beginner and intermediate levels (to degree and HND students). I also gave private tuition in French up to GCSE level. Prior to that, I taught EFL for 2 and a half years in Italy and London and later taught French and Italian evening classes in Woking and Camberley and gave private tuition in Italian.

Patricia has been amazing with the preparations leading up to my A-level French exam. She has helped me so much with my grammar and translation and especially my writing. I would highly recommend her for this level of tuition!

Patricia has been tutoring my daughter for her A level French for the last three months and I recommend her highly. Her lessons are very well structured and focused on my daughter`s areas of improvement. Patricia is very kind and keeps my daughter motivated to improve in her french. Patricia is also flexible with the timetable which is a plus for us. Great experienced french tutor.

Patricia has only had two sessions to date with my daughter to date but they seem to be going really well and we are pleased.

I am really enjoying learning french. I can not recommend Patricia enough. Each lesson has been structured and with purpose. We start by testing what we covered in the previous session. This really helps me with ingraining the detail. I personally find working one on one with a good tutor to be very beneficial and would advise anyone considering to speak another language to do the same.
