I am an experienced teacher of secondary Languages. I am patient, thorough and professional. I always tailor my lessons to suit the individual. I can help them to improve their performance and grade or to simply gain in confidence. My students have had great success over the years at all levels. I have many years` experience teaching French, key stages 3,4 and 5. and German key stages 3,4 I have been conducting Skype lessons in French and German. They are excellent for tuition of languages. We have voice and video. I can share notes and material onscreen. Tutees can ask questions, practice almost like one to one sessions

How would you describe your teaching style?

I prepare sessions carefully. They are tailored to each student, their needs and goals. I like a relaxed style as that helps students to learn and not feel stressed or pressured. I like to explain points, practise and use examples to make sure that the material isinternalised and then used with confidence.
