Information about Caroline

I am a highly-experienced and highly-qualified teacher, previously Head of Modern Languages and Deputy Headteacher in a Hertfordshire secondary school. I also have 4 years` experience of teaching in a primary school. I now run my own tuition business, concentrating on providing high-quality, stimulating, supportive and fun tuition to students of all ages.

My teaching approach is essentially that my students should be relaxed and have fun during their lessons, whether aiming for a grade 9 in GCSE or struggling to achieve that all-important 4/5 for Maths. Maybe you need support for A level French or perhaps you are looking for an excellent 11-plus tutor who will support you every step of the way? Or are you an adult wanting to learn French from a sympathetic adult who understands the different challenges of learning a language later in life?

My students frequently obtain results at least one grade above school/college predictions and my adult students, without exception, feed back that their travel experiences are more fulfilling and enjoyable with the confidence that they obtain from their language learning with me.

Whilst fully conversant with the current (ever-changing) requirements of the exam boards, I am equally happy to teach for pleasure!

Availability: I have daytime availability for homeschoolers, adults or young people who are out of school for other reasons

I have some weekday afternoon/evening availability.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: Secondary school teacher.
Former Head of Languages at a Hertfordshire secondary school.
Deputy Headteacher with responsibility for Lower School and primary transition.
Head of English at a Pupil Referral Unit.
Extensive tutoring experience in French, German, English and Maths to children and adults of all ages.
Primary school languages teacher.
Eleven plus tuition

My daughter looks forward to tuitions every week which says a lot about Caroline and her methods of teaching

Caroline was amazing. Always encouraging and patient. My daughter has some learning diffiuclties so Caroline was able to work through several different methods of teaching with her and adapt her teaching to find ways that worked best, which was really helpful and built up my daughter`s confidence. Resulted in getting a 7 in her GCSE which she would never have achieved without Caroline`s help. Thank you Caroline.

Caroline is an excellent tutor I cannot recommend her enough!! She was extremely knowledgeable in her subject but also gave my son so much valuable advice on exam technique and tips for doing well. My son was very reluctant with the idea of a tutor initially but after his first session with Caroline, he praised her immensely and couldn`t wait for his next lesson! She is very friendly, approachable and extremely competent and I can`t recommend her enough!

Caroline is a fantastic tutor, very professional and conscientious and my daughter feels at ease in her German sessions. Caroline`s approach has helped my daughter to start growing in confidence just after a few sessions. She actually looks forward to studying German now, a subject that she wasn`t keen on previously. Thank you Caroline, so happy to have found you :-)

Caroline is not only delightfully friendly but clearly a very competent French tutor. She`s been able to put our son at ease and is happy to work patiently at his pace, encouraging him and developing new ways to help his learning. We can highly recommend Caroline to anyone looking for a French tutor.

Caroline has only by working with my daughter for a month and I can already see a big improvement in her attitude to French (the marks will come later).

Caroline allows my daughter to work on the areas she has difficulty with and has gone patiently over some of the very elementary building blocks that she did not understand. I cannot speak highly enough of the early signs of improvement.

Caroline is very experienced and has a lovely manner. She got the measure of my daughter very quickly and in two short sessions has made a big difference particularly to my daughters confidence. I really couldn`t recommend her highly enough.

Caroline is a fantastic tutor who has helped my son get to grips with GCSE French. She has understood his needs perfectly and with her tutoring style and humor seems to have made this difficult subject enjoyable for him to grasp. Caroline has given my son a fighting chance to pass this exam with a decent grade. I would highly recommend her.

My daughter has only had one session so far with Caroline but really enjoyed the hour and felt that Caroline can help her to progress as she needs to. She felt very comfortable with her and left the session with a much needed confidence boost.
