Information about Florence

I am a reliable tutor with a PGCE from the UCL Institute of Education, ranked best in the world for education, and eight years of teaching experience that includes work in both schools and private homes in England and abroad. I have taught all ages from three year olds to adults and in many different countries. I am enthusiastic, hard working, caring and have a strong knowledge of the UK curriculum.

I speak five languages and am passionate about the benefits of language learning. Last year I was a student ambassador for the Association for Language Learning (ALL) and as part of my teacher training scholarship attended APPG meetings at the House of Lords to discuss language related issues.

As well as languages I teach a range of primary subjects and entrance exam preparation.

Florence tutored my daughter for GCSE Italian. Florence is an excellent tutor. She is engaging and enthusiastic about her subject. She arrived on time and proved to be flexible if we had to re-arrange any classes.
My daughter was predicted a 5 but with Florence’s help she was achieving 8s in recent past papers.

Really pleased with Florence. My daughter connected with her immediately and she really enjoys and looks forward to her sessions. Florence is very calm and patient and explains things really clearly.

Florence teaches English Language & Mathematics to my daughter on a weekly basis.

I have found Florence to be friendly and approachable. My daughter enjoys learning with her and there has been a notable improvement in my daughter’s abilities in the areas in which Florence has provided tuition.

Florence is flexible in her approach to teaching my daughter. Although I originally asked Florence to teach general English reading and writing skills, I have on several occasions asked her to teach specific areas in Maths and English to complement what my daughter has been working on at school. She has been able to meet these requests without difficulty. I also asked Florence to set homework to accompany what she has been teaching, which she has also done.
