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.

Hello, this is Sem! I am an LLB Graduate from Queen Mary University of London and I have finished my LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law at Queen Mary University of London. I am working in a law firm which specialises in Energy & Technology Law and doing online tutoring at the same time. I have taught more than 50 students in the past three years, prepared them for exams, helped them with courseworks and enhanced their knowledge. I also taught children, assisted them for learning a new language (both French and Turkish). Thus, I am native in Turkish, fluent in French and English, intermediate in Spanish. I am a very organised, disciplined and patient person. Moreover, I went to a French School from the age of 3 until 8, which is called Lycée Français Pierre Loti d'Istanbul, and I got my French Baccalaureate with Mention Tres Bien (16.2/20). All in all, my main goal is to help, motivate and support students to achieve their best. The most effective way to do this is by making sure that students understand each topic and do not hesitate to ask any questions. Thus, at the end of each session I am summarising what has been covered during the lesson. During the lessons, I am including real-life examples and stories that I have encountered in order to help the student remember and better understand.

I am currently studying Biochemistry at University of Oxford having 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 am currently studying for a Masters in Translation (French and English), at Goldsmiths in SE London. I started my MA this year after graduating with a high first class BA in French and Linguistics from Queen Mary, University of London. During my BA I spent my 3rd year studying at the Sorbonne in Paris, where I also achieved a higher first. My degree, and especially my year abroad, has given me an in-depth knowledge of French; from the nitty gritty of grammar to the nuances of French culture and croissants. Thanks to my studies in Linguistics I have a broad understanding of language in general, with competences in phonology, morphology and semantics. These studies, in coordination with my French studies, have given me a comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of language, which have helped me to advance my own language studies and to understand the struggles of my students. I believe in a nuanced but structured approach to language learning, adapting the learning style to each student by recognising the strengths and weaknesses of the individual and tailoring the approach and speed of the lessons as needed. I am happy to tailor content to the interests of the student, and to introduce them to interesting topics within the Francophone world. I have been tutoring French since the 2nd year of my BA and feel confident in my ability to connect with students, understand their struggles in the admittedly difficult task of language learning and help them overcome these difficulties with patience and compassion. Language learning is a rewarding and important skill which, when supported in the right manner, can help build students' confidence in other areas of their education and encourage their curiosity and motivation. I am a bibliophile, linguaphile and Francophile and am looking forwarding to imparting my love of languages and learning to students!

About me: I am French native and qualified teacher with a PGCE and a QTS. I have been teaching French for 6 years, from primary to secondary school and adults classes. All my experience has allowed me to be very creative in my teaching. Integrating ICT, books, worksheets, power points, videos, and interactive games to ensure a broad variety of teaching methods are implemented. I always ensure that all skills are covered. I have excellent feedback of students that I have tutoring for GCSE IGCSE and Alevel examinations in order to get a A* with success. I will provide my students with a medium term planning, and personalise learning experience. We can discuss your needs, and I will be able to assess your requirements. Whether you are an auditory, visual, or kinaesthetic learner, I will find a strategy that will result in success. When I teach, I don’t use complicated grammatical explanations that simply confuse people and I don`t ask you to memorise long lists of vocabulary - because my 10 years experience have shown me that this simply does not work. Instead, through 1-to-1 interaction, I show our students how to build up the language, step by step, so that they are actually speaking independently in French. I worked at Whitechapel and Muswell Hill secondary schools, as well as in Adult Education for City Lit at Coven Garden. I am currently working part-time in secondary school as Teacher. I am a qualified teacher and in my teaching career I was able to cater for the needs of primary secondary and adults students, covering the basic language, from common entrance, GCSE, A-level, DELF-DALF, IB, to adults. I enjoy teaching all of those levels because it has allowed me to bring lots of creativity and create a wide range of resources that can be adapted to all my students. Tutoring online: I have been teaching French for many years. I am from Paris and hold a PGCE and QTS. In 2013` I started to offer online tutorial because... I wanted to learn Spanish at home or during my trips and couldn`t find any good free ressource on the internet (it may have changed since that time!). Online lessons worked very well for me as it was very interactive and flexible. So why not me? So, I started designing my own course from scratch. And slowly I had more and more learners asking for French on Skype or Zoom. French courses Program, What I offer: Free discussion: on any topics you like! Conversation in real-life situations: master dialogues and get confidence in speaking French! Examples : Shopping at a boulangerie Daily conversations: at breakfast Ordering at a restaurant Buying medicine at drugstore Buying a ticket and take a bus/metro Asking for directions on the street Making an appointment with dentist by phone Make an appointment for the week-end with a friend SKYPE), and then have a discussion on the content with the French teacher Grammar & oral practice: deepen your understanding of grammar and practice speaking using the grammar knowledge in real conversation. You can choose a specific grammar form to practice (ex. Past tense, future tense, conditional for polite form, conditional for hypotheses, subjunctive, etc.) Writing expression: you read the article I send you in advance and write your opinion (max. 250 words). I receive your text by email, will check it and send you the correction by email. Preparation for exams: I analyse your current level and help you set goals and study plans in order to succeed in the exam. Specialised rench: Î will help you learn specific expressions and vocabulary in French necessary to your profession and specialisation. What type of lesson do you need? With me you can... prepare for your French exam DELF, DALF, others.. talk about subjects that interest you - news, films, literature, etc... prepare for a professional interview or a meeting My avaibility: Daytime and some evenings. week-ends (teaching at home). I can tutor online and will ensure to make it as challenging as possible. Please note that a basic transport fee will be applied if I come to your place.

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.
