I am a Modern Languages Teacher within a Secondary School, with 26 years experience in teaching children from P5 to S5 year groups. I have also enjoyed tutoring pupils in preparation for O Grade, Standard Grade and Higher examinations, or simply teaching conversational Spanish to adults. I am an energetic person who prides herself on her ability to communicate with her employer, clients and pupils alike. My strengths are in the classroom or face to face teaching, making lessons interesting for my students.
In 1996 I started working part-time in order that I could spend more time with my young family, whilst maintaining my chosen vocation. As a part-time teacher I was given the opportunity to teach primary pupils in helping them prepare for modern languages in secondary school. I found this an extremely refreshing and rewarding experience as younger pupils were very receptive to new languages and showed great interaction between pupils and teacher.

Claire has been wonderful helping my son with his French before his national 5 exam, she has lots of patience and was really able to get him to understand the subject. Recommend her to anyone looking for a French tutor
Excellentprofessional tutor, made us feel at ease and comfortable in what was a new learning environment for us as a couple ,would definitely recommend her to others
Just what you expect from a tutor . My daughter settled in straight away and is now enjoying learning her higher Spanish and it is down to Claire fostering her interest and giving her the confidence to do well in this subject . Would highly recommend this tutor and site to parents in the future .
