Passionate polyglot/ Qualified teacher of French/ Spanish & Persian:
Enthusiastic linguist and ex- Head of Languages with 20 years’ experience of teaching in various environments, in both primary and secondary schools as well as teaching adults’ courses, and teaching online. I love teaching languages, encouraging and supporting my students in their learning.
My students benefit from a tutor with an excellent accent, subject knowledge, and a wealth of resources, interactive or traditional to challenge them where necessary, and to support them in their language learning journey. I treat each student individually as everyone’s need is different. During the 1st session, this will be discussed to help me plan lessons accordingly. My teaching style is a mixture of old and new methods, so no one lesson is the same as another. Homework will be set if requested.
I have a BA in French Literature and Linguistics (1st), and a post-graduate Certificate of Education in teaching of Modern Foreign Languages. In my career, I have worked as a Principal Examiner, Head of Department, Head of Year, and Languages Teacher of French, Spanish, Persian (Farsi), and English as a second language. I have taught students as young as 5 to adults. I teach conversational language for social occasions, language for achieving a specific qualification (GCSE/ A-Levels), and business language.
At the moment I teach in an international school online, and I tutor privately in the evenings and at the weekends, but I am available, I can be flexible to suit my client's request.
