Information about Colin


I`m Colin, an experienced linguist of some 30 years having lived, worked and taught French and German in France and Germany over that period. I am also an experienced teacher of Spanish and Italian with relevant work experience using those languages too.

I`ve also been a senior business leader with particular emphasis on commercial development both in the UK and overseas- in fact my first degree is a 1st class BSc honours degree in Business Administration so I am qualified and experienced to teach Business as well as foreign languages- I really enjoy mixing my extensive experience in the sales and marketing arenas with the academic theories, particularly in the area of strategic marketing planning where I have been able to implement so much of what I learnt at university in the working environment.

I currently tutor a mix of GCSE, A level, adult learners, degree level and company executives at all levels including right from scratch. I also work with a number of native speaker associates who offer additional languages

I am also absolutely passionate about both learning and teaching foreign languages and in addition to the languages I teach, I have learnt a number of other languages as an adult learner so am aware of the process and effort required to reach your linguistic goals!

Having spent so much time recently in country, I am familiar with current idiom and language, not just textbook vocabulary

Wherever possible, I like to use recent source material from the media and am more than willing to conduct all or the majority of my lessons in the foreign language once a certain proficiency has been reached

I also pay articular attention to developing a good accent and pronunciation right from the outset to develop the confidence of my tutees when they come to use the language themselves outside of the classroom.

You will find me friendly, approachable and always willing to help, but I am also very ambitious for my tutees, so I will push you to dig deep and really get results

Availability: Weekday days and evenings

My teaching is based out of a location in the North West-close to St Helens WA10.

My tuition fees include travel up to 5 miles from St Helens , otherwise, for distances greater than this, travelling expenses will be charged

After School

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: 1st Class Honours degree, Institute of Linguists qualified and 30 years hands-on experience of speaking and teaching French and German

I have lived and worked extensively in France, Spain/Latin America, Italy and Germany. My work was in relation to sales and marketing and I held senior management/directorship positions in those roles using French, Spanish, Italain and German as my daily working languages to manage colleagues, clients and suppliers.

I have also recently spent time in local schools acting as teaching assistant to familiarize myself with the current curriculum

I am experienced in coaching both adult learners from scratch and developers as well as school and university students taking specific exams.

I am familiar with AQA, WJEC and EDEXCEL syllabus requirements for GCSE and A Level.

5/5 Rating

Colin has been tutoring my daughter for A’ level Spanish for the past 4 weeks. Not only is he reliable but he always arrives early and equally leaves late - providing much more that just one hour of tuition. My daughter has quickly established a rapport with him and is visibly growing in confidence. Colin is calm and supportive but also extremely knowledgeable with respect to not only languages but also the A’ Level syllabus. I would recommend him as a tutor to any language student.

Colin is a very knowledgeable teacher and I thoroughly enjoy our lessons. Colin creates an environment which puts you at ease yet is still professional and dedicated to the job at hand. Colin is well prepared for all lessons, with books and writing boards which is helping me progress every week.
