I am a graduate of Oxford University. I tutored throughout my studies, and consequently have 9 years of experience - both in the UK and abroad. I teach English Language and Literature, History, Latin and Greek and French up to A-level, as my main subjects. I have also specialised in tutoring the humanities up to A-Level/ IB Level tutoring, including politics, religious studies and history. I have taught at all levels, having worked with students as young as 5 years-old, through to A-Level students and adult learners. I have experience in preparing students for the ISEB Pre-tests, for 11+, 13+ and common entrance - English and maths. I have successfully coached many students through the application procedures to top UK independent schools, including Eton College and Harrow School, and to top universities including Cambridge University and University College London. I am a committed tutor and have consistently produced excellent results. I believe that effective teaching must focus on the student’s needs and must be engaging and fun. I always strive to bring the best out in my students.

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 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

As a french native speaker who has lived and studied in France. I have a track record for my linguistic skills in giving confidence to students who struggle to master foreign language and understand French culture. The learning experience is based on well prepared and structured lessons to motivate in learning how to develop the technique of improving their written skills, listening and speaking, learning French key words. The teaching technique is based on identifying the weaknesses and strength of the students thus helping them to reach their targets.

I am a qualified teacher of Spanish, French and German. I have taught in the classroom and been a private tutor for nine years. This includes working as a Head of Languages in a secondary school. I've always been passionate about languages. But when I was a pupil, with an overemphasis on vocabulary and an underemphasis on grammar, the teaching limited my progress. This motivated me to become a languages teacher who gives students the underlying framework of a language in order to accelerate their progress toward fluency. I've had proven success. Due to my GCSE results, I was promoted to Head of Department within two years of stepping foot in the classroom - success which I sustained at KS3, GCSE and A-Level. While I love the classroom, my passion has turned towards one-to-one tuition, simply because the learning gains are so quick. Since taking on a new role for the Department for Education in whole-school improvement, I have more flexibility to offer private tuition, bringing my experience of Ofsted-outstanding teaching and learning to my online lessons. The one-to-one format allows me to pack more into my lessons than in the classroom, and to go deeper with each of my students. You can expect to be supported and challenged. You'll have homework after every lesson. Something I place a high value on is explaining to you, where appropriate, the language learning process so that you can begin to map out your learning journey towards fluency. I studied Spanish, French and German at University so am equally proficient in all three. I also earned a Masters in Education Leadership in 2014. I offer lessons at every level. Whether you're someone who has never tried a language, a GCSE student, or someone who's looking for a conversation partner, I'd love to meet you. Get in touch!

I graduated from the University of Birmingham last year, with a First in Modern Languages. I have a very high level of spoken and written French and Spanish, having lived and travelled extensively in Spain, Latin America and France. I'm hugely passionate about learning languages and I believe being able to speak another language opens doors, broadens your mind and allows you to experience things from a completely different worldview, something that's particularly important in the current political climate. I am very keen to pass on this attitude to the next generation! I have an excellent command of the English language as well; I'm particularly good with spelling, grammar, and general writing style. What's more, I am able to explain these things in clear, concise ways, and I will always be patient and encouraging. When teaching French and Spanish, I will try and instil in pupils an all-round knowledge of the language - working on the four core skills of listening, speaking, writing and reading. I think it's particularly important to try and practice speaking in every session, as most British language learners lack confidence and are afraid to make a mistake. I will keep speaking practice light-hearted, fun and non-intimidating! I have tutored friends informally in English (as a foreign language), French, and Spanish, and I have realised that I am naturally good at teaching, and I get a lot of joy out of seeing someone understand a concept or get better at something with my help. I want to help young people realise their full potential, improve their confidence and connect to the creativity and joy of speaking French / Spanish. I have just as much enthusiasm for the English language - I am fascinated by words, knowledgeable about English literature and skilled at analysing written language. I would try and convey this love when tutoring English Literature or Language. Overall, I want to pass on a sense of the fun of language to young people. I am aware that no two children learn in the same way, so I will be receptive to individuals' styles of learning and adapt my teaching to suit them. During our first session together, we will discuss what your strengths are and what you want to work on particularly, and I will play to your strengths to help you improve your skills. As I am young, I am an energetic and fun tutor; I will try to connect to my tutees and get to know them well, forming strong working relationships and thus understanding how best to encourage and motivate them. I love to travel, and I'm also a musician (I sing and play the violin). I love dancing, cycling, swimming, and yoga.

I am an experienced tutor with an Environmental Sciences MSc from Imperial College London. I am patient, approachable and friendly and have a very adaptable approach to teaching. I like the student to feel at ease, enjoy learning as much as possible and to ultimately set the pace. I have experience tutoring students with SEN's, such as dyslexia. I specialise in English, Geography, French and RS up to GCSE level. I have taught English to both children and adults overseas (Sulawesi, Indonesia and Kenya) and in the UK. I have lived and worked in Guinea, West Africa and taught children in both groups and 1-1. I have experience lesson planning and finding creative ways to assist the learning process. I’m very organised and self-motivated and just love helping others learn. Teaching is something I truly enjoy doing- connecting with the student and helping them to connect with the subject. I have experience teaching SEN students and have completed a Special Educational Needs (SEN) diploma, specialising in dyslexia. Over the years I have developed my own learning techniques which has helped me navigate my way around the education system, but most importantly develop an understanding of the need for patience and listening to a persons unique learning requirements.

I was born and educated in England. I have resided in Canterbury, Leeds, Oxford, London, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Oswestry. I gained five 'A Levels' (AAABC) at Notre Dame 6th Form College (Leeds) before attending Oxford University where I obtained Degrees in Philosophy and French. I proceeded to do Postgraduate studies in London where I was semi-resident at the British Library (1993-1998). I have been a widely published author since 1999, being the author of dozens of essays and monographs in Philosophy, Comparative Literature, Poetry and Psychology. I am co-author of the self-help book 'Reading in No Time' and author of the forthcoming publication 'French in No Time' (2020). He is a member of MENSA, the BAJ (British Assoc. of Journalists) and A3M (Academy of the 3rd Millennium). I am currently editor of the 'Nobel Prize Collection' for Living Time Books. I have taught pupils from KS1 to Postgraduate Level in the UK and abroad. I undertake an equal amount of group-teaching (lecturing/seminars/classroom) and individual tutoring (mentoring/coaching/private tutorials). I have taught in Switzerland (Geneva, Basel), France (Paris), Germany (Berlin, Munich), Italy (Milan) Poland (Krakow, Warsaw) and Slovakia (Bratislava). I am a native English speaker and also a fluent speaker of French and German. I am highly experienced in teaching children and adults with special educational needs - including Autistic Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Aspergers, Pathological Demand Avoidance), ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other developmental conditions. I am quoted as saying: "Everyone can learn - it doesn't matter how differently we do so!" I specialize in GCSEs, A Levels, Entrance Exams and assistance with Dissertations, Essays, Theses & Coursework. I have explained my approach to teaching in the following way: "With every person that I teach, whether they are before me as an individual or as part of a group, first of all I take time to observe the way in which they learn - their own particular mode of processing information. Then, once I have understood their learning processes - be they visual, verbal, concrete, mathematical, or a combination of these - I customize my own teaching approach to that student's optimum mode of intake. This usually goes a large way toward maximizing their learning experience. What I find is of vital importance in the learning journey - and which is largely responsible for making it successful - is identifying with crystal clarity the exact goals which are to be attained. I make sure that my students do not lose sight of their goal and I make sure that their 'will-to-achieve' stays at a top level throughout the educational process. Without a goal, motivation falters".

Qualifications: I am a qualified teacher. I received my PGCE in Modern Languages from University College London in 2018. I have a MA in Interpreting and Translating (French/German) at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. I have taught 1 year in Germany, 1 year in Paris and 1+ year in London. My teaching style is fun and relaxed but focuses very much on what is needed from the student and from the syllabus. I have worked with many SEN students in the past. I previously taught a student with autism and also a few students with dyslexia and ADHD. I am quick to find out how best to teach these students and work out their method of learning. I adapt my teaching methods to their needs. As well as teaching languages, I tutor in other subjects. I studied English up to A-level (got an A), biology (B) and ordinary level maths. Hobbies : Languages are actually one of my hobbies! I try to read in 4 languages whenever I can. I learn phrases in other languages too. Music is another passion of mine: I listen to it every day, I sing and play the piano. I also enjoy dancing and reading, mainly fantasy and fiction novels. I also like going for a run in the park.

Can I learn French online?

Yes! It's easy to learn French online with Tutor House. You can book in regular lessons with one of our tutors and learn online using our interactive whiteboard.

Is French an easy language to learn?

For English speakers, French is often one of the easiest languages to get to grips with. However, the accents, grammar and tenses are still quite different from English and can be hard to understand on your own. It's better to work with a tutor regularly when learning French, to help you learn the content more easily.

How much do French tutors charge?

Most tutors will charge between £20 and £50 a lesson, depending on how many lessons you book and the experience of the tutor.

James tutored me in French for just over a year for the IB. I originally got 3-4s in all my exams. James helped with reading, writing and oral presentations. He increased my confidence in speaking and 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!
