Information about Dan
I am a freelance linguist with a a BA in Contemporary European Languages (French and Spanish) and am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists in London (CIOL). I teach fun, friendly French and Spanish tuition to all learners of all levels, taking infinite care to tailor my lessons accordingly around the needs and desires of every individual learner.
My lessons suit any student who needs help with their work, anybody looking to learn either language from scratch or for an advanced speaker who wants to sharpen their skills, I enjoy helping any learner to reach their goal. Making each lesson as fun, diverse and interesting as possible is what I strive to do.
As a tutor, I offer the strongest passion for the subjects I teach, the communication and organisational skills necessary to put together and deliver an engaging lesson each and every time and the commitment to understanding and accommodating each student`s specific reasons and interests in learning French and Spanish. Yet, I have learned the importance of bringing other qualities to the table: I pride myself on having a fun and cheery personality, a great sense of humour and the most can-do and can-do attitudes!
Availability: I am available weekday afternoons and evenings and at weekends. I provide lessons online via Zoom and Skype.
As advised in my profile, my travel radius is within 5 miles and back of Basingstoke.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have been giving private tuition for the last few years as a supplement to my freelance translation work, although my first foray into tutoring began many years ago at university. I was fortunate enough to study Modern Languages at university and as part of my extracurricular activities enjoyed the opportunity of giving overseas exchange students one-on-one English tuition. Since then, I have had the pleasure of teaching a diverse range of students of all ages and levels, each with their own goals, desires and needs for learning French and Spanish.
My philosophy is simple: any topic a student wants to cover, however much time they wish to spend on it, whatever their reasons for learning either language, my goal is to get their French and Spanish level to where they want it to be.
Feedback For Dan (1)
Dan is a very experienced tutor who gives out quality lessons every session. He also provides the lesson notes of the lesson to you in a powerpoint so that it is very easy to review them at home. He is reliable, organised and always has his lessons prepared and always knows where we left off. He is very experienced in french and often dispenses really helpful information that you wouldn`t from book or apps that help you sound more natural when speaking. His price is extremely good and I feel he is 100% worth it if you are looking for a tutor.
