I am a multilinguist with considerable experience in teaching French and Spanish to a diverse range of students. I have a 100% success rate in terms of my students improving their academic grades. I am extremely passionate about my subject and committed to understanding and engaging with each new student's learning needs. I tailor my individual teaching programmes to ensure each student is able to develop and move confidently towards their goal, whether it be academic or personal. I choose to work with students who are committed to working towards their goal - they don't have to love the subject to begin with, they just have to want to improve, the love comes later, often when they discover how simple it can be and they start to see improvements in their ability and understanding! Among my previous students are Yas, a Spanish GCSE student who went from a predicted D to receiving an A* overall in 14 months, Roderick, who with no prior teaching since his French GCSE 16 months before we began, received an A* at French A Level after 7 months of home-schooling with me and Kendall, a French IB student who went from grade 3/4 to achieving a final grade 6/7 in 20 months - she called me up in Guatemala on results day so I knew it must be good news! Testimonials: "James tutored both my daughters for GCSE Spanish and they both received A*. This was particularly impressive with my eldest daughter who was on a Grade D at the end of Year 10. James accelerated Yasmin's learning rapidly over 6 months in Year 11, and changed her attitude towards Spanish from a boring difficult subject to her favourite! Aside from his in-depth understanding of the curriculum and effective teaching techniques, James is a lovely person with a great sense of humour, and the girls really enjoyed his company. We'd highly recommend James to anyone wanting to improve their grades and language skills." Zaya F - Spanish GCSE "James was simply brilliant in giving my son confidence in his ability to learn languages, which ultimately led to GCSE success. He possesses a magical ability to build self-esteem. Invaluable. Fabulous. Very highly recommended." Donna G – French & Spanish IGCSE "James tutored me in French for just over a year for the international baccalaureate. Marked out of 7, I originally achieved 3-4s in all my examinations. James helped with reading, writing and oral presentations. He helped me to increase my confidence in speaking and also taught me invaluable techniques for verb conjugations. In the end I was able to achieve a 6/7 in my final IB results. Thank you James !" Kendall U - French International Baccalaureate "James was instrumental in getting my son to an A* for his Spanish A Level this year. Over a period of 8 months James worked to improve Omar’s original predicted grade of B, focussing on some core grammar which had been missed by the school and developing his reading, writing and oral skills. James often made himself available at short notice to review and offer feedback on Omar’s practice essays for the literature part of the course. We are delighted with the result and with the high level of professional service that James provides. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend." Mehta F - Spanish A Level “My daughter Chloe was struggling with Spanish during year 11, she failed her mock and was really worried. We found James and he worked steadily with her for the three months leading up to her GCSE. I’m delighted to say she achieved a 6(B)!! Incredible...a fail to a B in only 25 hours tutoring! Thank you James, she couldn’t have done it without you!” Beth W – Spanish GCSE James tutored my daughter for just over a year at French Pre-U. Our aim was to secure a comfortable distinction. James knew the syllabus inside out and ensured no stone had been left unturned in her knowledge and exam technique. We were delighted but not too surprised when the final result came back a D1. We’re thrilled with James, his approach and the care he brings to each session. Such a star. Mikael J – Cambridge Pre U French "James is an amazing teacher. He got my daughter to a B in French GCSE from a predicted D, and my son to a B in Spanish GCSE from a predicted E. This helped my daughter to get to UCL and put the Russell Group within my son's reach. His teaching style is unique. Within minutes of arrival, he had won the respect of both my teenagers. He made himself available at weekends and in the evenings both in person and over Skype. I am so grateful for his help. I highly recommend him." Rachel G - French & Spanish GCSE "James is an outstanding teacher - he taught my son to find his own motivation & the confidence he needed to excel in Spanish. He brings the language to life and creates a self sufficiency in study habits that was wonderful to observe - the GCSE process was made palatable and non daunting ! I would wholly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor that cares about the child in the most holistic sense and leaves them with the skills to tackle languages independently post their time with him - he was an absolute star !" Shaleen Y - Spanish IGCSE "James is one of the best tutors I have ever met. He is clearly passionate about teaching and has such an engaging and enthusiastic manner. Anyone who is lucky enough to come across James has found a true gem. I cannot recommend him highly enough." Helen S - Spanish GCSE

Success in any subject area stems from confidence, and a thorough understanding of its core principles. I focus on building up a conceptual understanding from first principles, in a way that makes sense to the individual. I use different styles of teaching to keep students engaged, and provide them with skills and techniques which they can develop further in their own time before learning new skills in the next session. In the lessons we build on new concepts together, and I prepare materials to allow you to consolidate in your own time before we review it in the next lesson. My expertise is French at all levels. I use a wide range of resources online, and prepare word document materials for lessons and for you to use at home in your own time. I have been tutoring for three years and have had great reviews throughout. I can teach French at all levels, and provide GCSE biology and chemistry lessons. I have finished my 3rd year of Medical Degree (I am currently doing a masters in research), so I can provide very useful UKCAT/BMAT/UCAS advice in order to give you the best chance of getting into university for any chosen course.

I am currently studying for a DPhil in Pharmacology at the University of Oxford, having completed an undergraduate and masters in Biochemistry also at University of Oxford. I finished schooling at North London Collegiate School where I gained 45/45 in the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. I have had previous experience tutoring IB biology, chemistry, English, maths and economics as well as GCSE French, English, maths, biology and chemistry. I believe in altering my teaching style according to the student and have had experience in tutoring a variety of different academic abilities and ages. I am extremely organised and am happy to go above and beyond in regards to preparation and gathering resources to help the student. My experience in tutoring for IB and GCSE means that I am good at ensuring that all parts of the syllabus are covered and that the student is well informed of what’s expected in the exam. One of my IB students was recently admitted to Tufts University in Massachusetts while other students that I am currently tutoring for SAT are currently applying for numerous highly ranked American Universities.

I'm currently the Head of Classics at a high performing boys' grammar school in the London area, with three years of teaching experience at top London schools under my belt. In addition to serving as head of department, I am an experienced examiner for OCR (Greek, Latin, and Classical Civilisation at GCSE and A level). I have a great deal of experience teaching students of any ability, having pioneered Greek and Latin language clinics at my last school as well as supporting candidates working towards Oxford and Cambridge entrance. I am driven, curious, and passionate about the subjects I teach. Having spent my teens and early adulthood acquiring proficiency in several languages, I am always eager to impart my particular expertise. Educated at Trinity College, I am used to working in a dynamic and competitive environment. During my university years, I worked as a private tutor of Latin, French, German, Irish, and English Lit & Lang. I also worked as a voluntary tutor on a university outreach program, teaching students from disadvantaged local schools. In addition, I spent three years as an academic mentor in my department, meaning I tutored groups of first-year undergraduates in Latin and Ancient Greek. As a new teacher and postgraduate student, I am eager to continue developing my craft. My approach is a holistic and highly personal one, and I strive to use that which drives and inspires each student to aid their education. I am highly adaptable to student needs and I am open to innovative and unconventional learning styles.

I am a highly experienced tutor with over 7 years experience teaching and tutoring in private and public schools, as well as privately and online, in the UK, France and Spain. I am familiar with all major exam boards, and have been frequently noted for the passion and rigor with which I introduce and teach my subjects. I am a firm believer in the idea that education should be available to all, and that there is is student without potential. I thus make a point to help the student see the attraction of the subject. My methodology is focused on ensuring immersion in both the more theoretical and abstract principles of the subect and their application through practice and concrete examples. I aim to get the student applying themselves consistently as soon as possible, keeping a constant eye out for areas for improvement. I studied at the University of Warwick, Sciences Po, and the Sorbonne. I have worked as a teacher, tutor, translator, researcher, as well as business research and charity. I am fluent in 6 languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and German. I am also a teacher of Latin and Greek.

From 2018-2022 I studied French and Spanish at Queen's University Belfast and I have recently graduated with first class honours. My degree consisted mainly of grammar, translation and literature and in 2020 I moved to Madrid to teach English in a primary school. I want to help students who are studying modern languages because I understand how difficult they can be, particularly the exams. I am passionate about foreign language learning, travel and culture and I love sharing my passion with others. I have one year of experience teaching English as a foreign language and I am currently working in a private school in Colombia, working with children who are just three years old, as well as students who are seventeen years old. I am also working with the English teachers to help them improve their level. In my spare time I work in a language centre giving classes to adult students who are hoping to improve their level of English. In terms of individual lessons, I like to tailor my classes to a student's individuals needs. For example, if a student is struggling with a particular grammar topic I prepare a lesson to address this particularly difficult topic, to include PowerPoints and follow up activities to reinforce learning. I am currently enjoying my time in Colombia and travelling has allowed me to learn more about the differences between particular Spanish dialects as well as the different cultures in the Spanish speaking world.

I would like to help as many students as possible to overcome their fear of a subject and to build their confidence in their capabilities. My qualifications: - Masters Degree in Computer Science (which helped me to deepen my knowledge of Mathematical logistics and also improved my way of explaining different problems.) -Maths GCSE grade 9 -Currently: Three months of experience in a PGCE course for teachers in the UK and it deepened my skills and knowledge of how to provide outstanding lessons to my students. -Lots of experience on both face-to-face sessions as well as online tutoring on various other websites (with many 4 and 5-star reviews) -Duolingo English qualification (IELTS level 7 equivalent). I have started doing private tutoring here in the UK a number of years ago in order to share my knowledge with students as well as helping them to become confident with themselves and their capabilities. In my opinion, showing a student that they are able to solve a problem or understand something that they first thought out of reach can really improve their confidence and this is often the key to them achieving a good grade at school. Additionally, the lack of understanding from the previous years can prevent a student from learning during a lesson and make him or her feel demotivated by the subject. I believe I can manage to fix this by providing them with the right support and most importantly, going back to gaps in their knowledge that occurred in previous years. It is necessary for them to have a good foundation in their subject to help them move forward and be able to grasp more complex ideas. Furthermore, I already taught many university and mature students as well and I am always happy to modify my teaching methods to fit the age of my student. During my lessons, I aim to work at the pace of the students as it can help them not to be under pressure. I can give them all the support they need with an ear to listen to their worries and I provide lots of original exercises. Finally, the best way to learn is with practice. I, therefore, engage my students during the lesson to think about the concept they are about to learn as it will help them to feel like they are achieving something by themselves rather than being given the solution too easily. If you have any questions regarding my past or my teaching methods, please send me a message and it will be my pleasure to answer you. I wish you all the best during your learning journey!

How do you say 'tutor' in French?

One of the ways to say ‘tutor’ in the French language is 'professeur particulier'. For 'private lesson', you might say 'cours particulier'. Our experienced tutors can help you learn the basics and much more through their comprehensive French lessons in Cambridge! Explore the richness of the French language through Tutor House today!

Are French lessons in Cambridge worth it?

Definitely! With the help of our skilled French tutors, you will conquer the areas you struggle with, whether that's grammar, pronunciation, comprehension or a mixture of everything. Your tutor will also focus specifically on what you're hoping to get out of your French journey. They can supplement your French classes with private lessons, honing your personal methods of learning French to help you be as productive as possible in your studies. Whether you are taking introductory lessons at home or French courses in University, our tutors will help you reach your goals. Students find that, with a private tutor, their confidence goes up exponentially and they make substantially more progress than they would have as a solo learner. Find the perfect tutor for online or private French lessons in Cambridge today.

Why choose French lessons in Cambridge with a tutor from Tutor House?

Our French tutors are committed to harnessing the 1:1 learning format to maximise students' potential and guarantee them the language success they deserve. Before our tutors start teaching with us, they are required to undergo a thorough training session and all in-person tutors are DBS checked. Our tutors offer a wide range of experience in teaching French lessons and many are native French speakers, who can offer insight into the nuances of the language and the richness of French culture. Start taking French lessons in Cambridge today with an experienced French tutor from Tutor House!

When should I start French lessons in Cambridge?

You can start French lessons whenever you like - the sooner the better. Our French tutors can provide you with excellent French lessons in Cambridge as soon as you finish setting up an appointment with them. Mastering the French language takes time and developing your speaking skills, vocabulary, and language skills can therefore become a long-term commitment. It's all too easy to put off learning a new skill but once you start, you'll be grateful you kept the delay to a minimum. Acquiring a new language can open up doors to many opportunities, whether in the business or personal arena. So find your perfect tutor here at Tutor House today to take your skills to the next level.

Looking for French lessons in Cambridge to improve your language skills?

We've all most likely fantasised about moving to France at least once in our idle moments. Perhaps we've seen ourselves taking a vacation to a French-speaking country and mingling amongst the native speakers, understanding what’s being said and laughing along with jokes shared. Whatever your desire to learn might be, becoming fluent in another language is a wonderful goal to set for yourself.

 

As French is an official language in close to 30 countries, developing proficiency in it will look excellent on your CV, particularly in professions that value French language skills. Don't hesitate to go through our selection of tutors offering French lessons in Cambridge to start your journey now!

 

Pursuing fluency in a language is not for the faint-hearted. All foreign languages come with their own twists and turns and you will most likely encounter a shortage of motivation at several points throughout your journey. Your Cambridge-based French tutor will support you during any and all moments of difficulty you may come across.  If you're a beginner, they will help you traverse those initial barriers that include pronunciation difficulties, conjugation confusion and wondering why French always seems to be spoken so fast! As you progress further, they will break down more challenging grammatical structures, such as the subjunctive and past historic tense, and make sure your theoretical understanding of the language is as solid as possible.

 

Fortunately, it's not just theory that your tutor will be helping you with. One of the most challenging parts of learning a language is speaking it. Different from the impersonal size of modern language classes, tutoring offers perhaps the most stand-out benefit in its personalised structure. One-to-one tuition allows you to build your speaking confidence in a safe and supported environment. Your French tutor will both encourage and challenge you, allowing you to progress far more quickly than you would in a traditional classroom setting. The thought of conversing in French might intimidate you but hiring a tutor for French lessons in Cambridge can offer an excellent transition from a safe, protected environment to real-world French. 

 

So how do you start private French lessons in Cambridge? Contact our educational team to discuss your specific requirements so they can match you with the perfect tutor. You can then book a free trial call with that tutor or enroll in their lessons directly. Alternatively, you can browse our extensive selection of French tutors yourself and pick one who you would like to take a class with. Lessons start from £20 per hour. We look forward to hearing from you!
