Whether you are a language beginner, advanced learner or want to brush up on your casual language skills, I can help you in French, German, Italian or English as a Foreign Language (EFL), through one-to-one or online tuition.

If you are pursuing a teacher training course (e.g. PGCE), or are a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in French, German or Italian, I can help you prepare your lessons and ensure you have the language skills you need to teach with confidence.

DBS checked, I have over 4 years of varied language teaching, and Head of Department, experience and am now involved in further language study and tutoring.
My passion is to share the enjoyment and satisfaction that language learning brings and helping students of all ages to reach their full potential, helping you get to where you need to be.

Experience and Qualifications:
Qualified Modern Languages Teacher; Head of Modern Languages.

Aberystwyth University (2007-11) French, German, Italian: 2:1, including Distinction.
University of Gloucestershire (2011-12) PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in secondary French, German.
The TEFL Academy Norwich (2016) Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Distinction).

Language lessons built on years of successful teaching experience:

N.B. for all learners: Depending on your language goals, objectives and choices, some lessons may vary in difficulty because of their specific objectives, and therefore fall into different level categories (see below for pricing categories). I base the levels upon the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the international standard for describing language abilities. Overall, lessons will tend to fall within a single level category, but it is also common that the context focus is switched to different, more challenging, levels due to the progress made. If you are unsure which specific level will be applicable to you, or want to check in advance how pricing may vary with particular lessons, please do not hesitate to contact me for further information where I will be happy to advise.

Upon finding out what your languages goals are, I offer a personalised learning programme to suit your style, with lessons adapted to focus on specific areas. I ensure learning is not only active and engaging, but also relevant and progress-focused to help you understand the bigger picture and in-depth components of your language learning, and to stretch your abilities with proven results. As well as listening, reading, writing and grammar, I build in a lot of conversational practice to enable you to move from strength to strength with confidence.

To ensure continuous progress, consistency is essential and I recommend 2 hours of tuition per week, with 2 hours of homework. I find that tutoring over a longer period is a much more successful way to engage learners and keep, rather than exhaust, their attention.

My hourly rates include full persоnаlisation оf resоurces tо yоur needs; including plаnning time, printing аnd mаking оf resоurces. Please note that I am able travel to you for your lessons; travel costs from my location are as follows:
0-1 miles = £0.00; 2-5 miles = 1.50; 6-9 miles = £3.00; 10-15 miles = £5.00; 16-20 miles = £7.00; 21-25 miles = £9.00.

Please contact me to find out about how you can benefit from a range of discounts available.

German / French / Italian / EFL:
Beginner / Survival / Primary / KS 1-2 / Secondary KS3: £34.00
Functional / Intermediate / Secondary KS4 / GCSE: £40.00

Proficient / Extensive / Expert / University £46.00

How to start:
I arrange to meet learners in a location that suits us both. Unless you are an adult learner, I will need to meet both you and your parent. The first session (consultation) is half price. I start by giving you further information and assessing your current language level.

For companies who require their staff to learn German / French / Italian / English, I can provide reports on progress as required. Please contact me for more information.

I look forward to helping you learn with confidence.
