I am a fully-qualified teacher of modern languages (French, Spanish and English as an Additional or Foreign Language).
Languages are a passion of mine and essentially I wish to share with others the joy of mastering them and the worlds that they open up for us.
Availability: I tutor during afternoons and evenings on weekdays. My availability during these times does change as bookings are made, so please do get in touch to check this.
For one-to-one tuition I am usually able to travel to your home if you live in Thanet. I can also carry out small group tuition at you home (if you wish to learn with friends or family), however, I also tutor groups at fixed dates and times in Broadstairs (please see `My Subjects`).
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Learning languages has been a lifelong passion and study of mine. On leaving school, I completed an administrative course with a linguist component (learning business French and German), then later I gained a University-level Diploma in French, then a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Modern Language Studies, followed by a PGCE Secondary 11-18 (Post-graduate Certificate in Education) in Spanish with French.Contact this Tutor
I have worked for several years within state education as a secondary teacher, teaching languages (French and Spanish) from KS3 to A-level, as well as Culture. As part of my teacher training, I also taught English as an Additional Language in Belgium and Holland and gained experience of teaching languages at primary school and instructing primary school teachers on modern language teaching methodology.
Over the past three years I have moved my focus onto tutoring, specialising in teaching adult learners and secondary school students from GCSE to A-level or IB (International Baccalaureate) and EAL (English as an Additional Language) to adults. Over the past year, I have also been teaching (mostly secondary level) students English as an Additional/Foreign language at an International school.
