Information about Carol

I am an experienced French teacher with detailed up-to-date knowledge of the AS and A level specification and knowledge of the GCSE specification. I am a head of department in a sixth form college and have extensive knowledge of the A level curriculum. I can really make a difference to A Level and GCSE grades.

I know how individualised teaching and support help a learner improve their understanding, knowledge and confidence. I tutor through focused one-to-one support with learners, and tailor each lesson to the particular needs of a learner to optimise the impact of the tuition: A learner should feel the improvements within a few lessons and this improvement should steadily increase.

I have particularly positive feedback from students regarding improving essay writing skills; preparing for speaking exams; grammatical knowledge; and how to tackle translations. I have a lot of experience in helping students prepare for exams and identifying and focusing on those elements of the exam which will have the greatest impact on grade improvement. All of my A level tutees achieved A and A* grades in their exams in 2018 and 2019, one achieving an A grade from an earlier prediction of a C grade.

Availability: Weekday evenings and Saturdays

Experience: I have twenty years teaching experience. I currently teach AS and A level French and I also have experience of teaching IB, GCSE and Key Stage 3. I have experience teaching the following literary texts: "No et moi", and knowledge of "L`étranger", and the films: "Au revoir les enfants", "La Haine", and "Un secret". I have a lot of experience teaching French grammar at all levels, as well as many years preparing students for exams and developing their exam technique for the various different skills assessed e.g listening and reading comprehension questions, essay planning and writing, and the Individual Research Project for the A level speaking exam and translations.

5/5 Rating

Carol is an outstanding tutor who has really helped my daughter to understand her French works beyond the A Level syllabus. She has helped her better understand both the speaking and writing elements of French A Level, particularly improving her French essay marks during the course despite only being her tutor for the last few months and definitely made my daughter more confident about tackling the essays during the exams. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone seeking to improve their/their children`s French.

5/5 Rating

I was looking (not very hopefully!) for a tutor to help my daughter in the last few weeks leading up to her French A`level. She had gradually lost confidence in her ability and was concerned she wouldn`t get the A grade she needed for university. Carol was incredibly helpful. She spent quite a long time asking me about my daughter`s academic background / strengths and weaknesses, and similar amount of time asking my daughter herself. She then carefully planned her sessions to target the areas where most help was needed. Carol was friendly, encouraging, positive, professional and reliable. She was also very knowledgeable about the A`level exam and useful techniques / strategies to pass with a good grade. My daughter actually enjoyed her lessons and feels in a much better place to sit the exam - I can unreservedly recommend Carol as a tutor.
