A qualified teacher of Modern Languages, my teaching experience over the past twenty-five years has included teaching French and German classes of all abilities and levels within the 11 - 18 year age group at secondary schools. As well as offering one-to-one tuition for GCSE and 'A' level, my pupils include adults wishing to learn French/German for business or personal interest. I have also taught adult evening classes to GCSE level and beginners French at primary schools in after school clubs.My lessons focus on all four language skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. The aim is to make lessons as interactive, interesting and relevant as possible and to ensure that all students achieve their full potential. Whilst using a wide selection of resources and learning aids, lessons are tailored to meet the needs of the individual.
