I am a qualified and passionate former teacher of Languages (German and French) who loves nothing more than to help pupils reach their potential. From experience, I have seen pupils struggle in the classroom environment and therefore disengage from the subject, which is such a shame. However, I have found that a little one-to-one guidance and support works wonders in building confidence and improving ability.
I have worked as a Learning Mentor, specialising in Special Educational Needs in a Secondary school, as well as teaching some French and support in English in addition to help GCSE pupils in schools reach their targets.
I can offer support in grammar, specific speaking, listening, reading and writing skills which the exam requires as well as coursework and homework. (Beginners - ALevel)
I am also available to tutor English up to GCSE too.
I am willing to travel or tutor from home depending on distance.
Please don`t hesitate to contact me if you would like more information regarding flexibility of availability or travelling distance.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to helping you in any way I can.
