Oxford Modern Languages graduate with 9 years` experience, enjoys teaching teenagers and gets good results
I`m an outgoing and confident communicator who enjoys working with teenagers and helping them achieve their full potential. As well as tutoring, I have worked as an exam invigilator in a local secondary school for the past 7 years, so I`m very familiar with the demands of GCSEs.
I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for German and Spanish and making lessons fun and memorable. Lessons are tailored to individual needs and ability and prepared thoroughly in advance. I also provide extra materials on grammar and vocabulary free of charge.
Practice in speaking forms an important part of the class, as there is little time for this at school. With lots of practice I build students` confidence in speaking and writing, which are usually the most challenging skills.
Naturally I can help students get to grips with grammar, as well as widening their vocabulary and I provide extra exercises to help them practise.
Outside my teaching work, I love the outdoors: walking, gardening, and wildlife.
Availability: Mon - Fri after school, occasional Saturdays

Experience: I have been working as a private tutor for 9 years, working mainly with students aged 12-16. My experience includes preparing students for GCSE exams and improving on predicted grades. Contact this Tutor
