Modern Languages and Business Studies
Information about Helen
I am Helen, born in the UK and I am an experienced, qualified foreign language teacher based in London SW20. Typically my students are based in South West London and Surrey but I also teach via Skype which enables those who live further away to have lessons with me.
After finishing my studies in French & German in Leeds, I then lived and worked in France in the Alsace. I later took up Italian back here.
Since returning to the UK, I have worked in the commercial domain where the use of my languages has always been required. I started tutoring 13 years ago and now it is my focus.
I teach students of all ages at all levels of proficiency and also work in the business sector.
In addition I teach English to non-native English speakers so that they can become confident in speech and grammar.
Availability: During the day for adult students to suit
After school hours and on Saturdays
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: Experienced local tutor for language tuition in:-
French to GCSE/IGCSE, A’Level, International Baccalaureate, University level & beyond
Italian and German to GCSE/IGCSE
Fully conversant with all exam boards and syllabuses
(Have full valid DBS disclosure)
Also teach conversation and practical language skills
to adults whether for business or pleasure.
I carefully assess where my students have gaps in their knowledge and then build on them through grammar and vocabulary. I therefore give my students the building blocks to create their own sentences in writing and speech.
I work with their textbooks but also provide my own material to make lessons more interesting. I also use interactive material as well as focusing on past papers and oral exams to help gain confidence in the language.
I engage well with all my students and make the lessons enjoyable and less like an extension of school. My conversation classes with adults are always fast-paced and fun, and my students very quickly widen their vocabulary and gain confidence in the new langua
