English Tutors in Herefordshire and English Tutoring in Herefordshire
A professional linguist in translating / interpreting and a qualified teacher of French (my mother tongue) with a background in Secondary schools (10 years), I am a patient and creative tutor whose main focus is to help you achieve your language potential regardless of your starting point. I am a friendly and compassionate teacher with a broad experience in teaching both young learners and adults at various levels, from conversational French to A Levels and business French. In addition to teaching French, I am also an English literacy specialist in a local secondary school with successful and proven outcomes.

I have a ‘can do’ attitude and know that with a flexible approach all students can make progress. Developing confidence is a key to success. Having an open mind-set and encouraging the student to try tasks in different ways, modelling what successful writing looks like, scaffolding reading comprehension to build skills and encouraging thought processing through speech are all part of the teaching process. Helping a child who struggles with English to achieve a 4 at GCSE is just as rewarding as seeing a very capable A Level student achieve an A* and get into their first- choice university. With over 30 years teaching experience in the UK, internationally and most recently at a British boarding school in China, I have a working knowledge of the different examination boards syllabi and am currently registered with one of the leading GCSE examination boards as a senior examiner. This enables me to take students through a step-by-step process of meeting the success criteria for GCSE and A Level. Currently, I live in rural England where I have become adept at teaching online. I love countryside walks, cats, English tea, reading and international travel.
