Information about Kate
As a fully qualified EFL teacher and a graduate of French, I am passionate about languages and enjoy both one-to-one and small group tutoring in French and English as a Foreign language. I think learning should be a fun experience for younger students and adults alike, and tailor my lessons to the age, level and personality of my students. I teach EFL at all levels and French up to AS Level. I hold a Trinity College ESOL Certificate and a degree in French and Politics (2.1) and lived in French-speaking Switzerland for two years. Being just a few minutes` walk from the Ashcombe school and central Dorking makes my house very accessible. I often teach from home as I have access to all my resources, but am flexible and very willing to travel. I have references available and get most of my tutoring through recommendations.
Availability: Very flexible
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: Having taught EFL at an FE college for 13 years and French to adults, I now enjoy tutoring at home which I have been doing for over 5 years. I am very familiar with Cambridge EFL exams and GSCE and AS French and try to keep abreast of changes to the syllabus.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Kate (3)
I am delighted to have found Kate as my French Tutor. Being a mature student, absolute beginner and a little self-contentious when speaking French, Kate makes me feel completely at ease and structures my lessons to suit my specific needs.
Kate has been the perfect choice for my 13 year old son who was struggling a little with the nitty gritty of the French language! She is friendly, knowledgeable and professional and understands how best to help and which areas to concentrate on. I would have no hesitation in recommending her excellent tuition service.
Kate is an extremely good teacher, I would highly recommend her.
Kate has strong knowledge of the language and a great teaching style, which
makes it fun and not so intimidating for an adult beginner at french such as
myself. She also have the patience of a saint and will tailor all of the
lessons to what you would like to use when you are away, so you are not
learning things you wont use! A*! :)
