Information about Dee

I am an experienced teacher with a strong child-centred (or student centred for adults), encouraging approach in my teaching.
I`m a positive energetic teacher who conveys that approach to my students.
Additionally, as a parent, I understand the pressures young people face from both sides.
I thoroughly enjoy speaking both French and Spanish and always aim to convert the positive experiences of languages in my teaching.

Availability: Monday , Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 5 to 7pm

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: Having spent 25 years as a Deputy Head in a Secondary School,I am now teaching there part-time and have much experience and success in Languages and Psychology to Advanced level. I have been a Head of Modern Languages in 3 Secondary Schools and am still teaching both French (up to A level) and Spanish (KS3). I have tutored in French recently and also taught in 4 Primaries in 2016 as a Languages outreach worker. My approach is child-centred and supportive and I aim to ensure the anxiety is taken away from a child`s experience of learning. I have one child in Year 10 and one just started University (thus understanding the pressures a child faces). I also personally achieved a further qualification in Maths in 2016 - reminding myself of the experience and challenge of further learning. Enjoying learning in my view leads to not only success but also greater self-confidence.

Dee arrives punctually and greets my daughter in French. She gives frequent feedback that both praises good work and is constructive about how to improve her skills. Dee quickly established a good relationship with my daughter and she looks forward to their sessions, and she is clearly learning about France as well as linguistic skills. Thank you Dee.

Tutors Response :

Thank you, Michelle, for your kind feedback. It is delightful to work at A level standard with your daughter who has a real passion for French and who works so diligently on her progression. I can already see the developing maturity in her quality and variety of topic work and skills. She has crossed the Gcse/A level divide swiftly. A bientôt !

5/5 Rating

I feel very lucky to have found Dee as a tutor for my son. Due to a change in options for GCSE my son had missed a whole year of French and so I needed a tutor that was able to bring him up to speed quickly. Dee`s level of experience and knowledge is amazing and consequently she was been able to quickly assess the gaps in my son`s knowledge and address them. She has built up a great rapport with my son over a very short time - not easy when dealing with a teenage boy! His confidence has increased dramatically and he has requested to continue working with Dee next term to ensure that he stays on track.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much Lisa - it`s a great pleasure working with you and with your son who is trying so very hard and making great progress!
