Information about Simon

Fully qualified Languages teacher with 28 years experience in adult education, colleges and schools offers individual and small group French tuition in the South Kent / West of East Sussex areas. Being mixed British and French-Swiss, I am able to offer authentic French whilst still appreciating the difficulties from an English speaker’s point of view. I am also qualified to teach Spanish to all levels and have years of experience in teaching the language.
I have a friendly approach and my lessons are very well organised with a sense of purpose. They are also individually tailored to meet the student’s specific needs. I have worked as a GCSE examiner on numerous occasions and have coached and taught AS/A level groups.
Should you be interested in either extra exam tuition, starting a new language or brushing up on previous knowledge, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you are willing to put in the effort, I can guarantee results from my end!

Simon has been the perfect tutor for our daughter, who is working her way towards her Spanish A Level. Simon has identified the areas that need improvement and we are very happy with our daughter`s progress.

Simon is just lovely. We had adopted the programme and his style of teaching to my rather unorthodox needs: my knowledge of French is very patchy and uneven, Simon very aptly defined it as "spiky", and I am away quite a lot. To top it all I have very set views on how I like to be taught and to learn a foreign language. What a brief! So it`s all a bit tricky to say the least. In all honesty I had not had much hope when I started, but now having met and worked with Simon my hopes and expectations have been restored. What, or rather who, a find!
