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 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 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!

Bonjour! I am a 28-year-old native French speaker from the South of France. I have been living in London for over 4 years and have several years of experience teaching French to a variety of people, from young children to adults. After obtaining my high school diploma I became an au pair in the US and taught French to the children in my care (8, 12, and 15 years old). Seeing them enjoy the acquisition of new skills gave me great satisfaction! When I returned to France I studied Tourism and Marketing at University. After completing my Bachelor's degree, I decided to move to London (2017) and put my knowledge into practice as a tour guide, alongside tutoring. In February 2020 I volunteered to help to build a school in Uganda (Abode School Project). One of the missions was to share our teaching technique with primary school teachers as well as teaching them French and English. It was such a privilege to share my language and culture, whilst learning about Ugandan customs and traditions. This experience was very inspiring and has prompted me to teach French regularly, back in London! Today, I'm teaching French at all levels and I'm passionate about it. At the moment, I teach online, with the possibility of doing lessons in person in the future when the circumstances allow it again. I adapt my lessons to each person's individual needs and goals and I make sure all aspects of the language are covered - written and oral comprehension as well as written and oral expression. My approach is also to make the lessons as fun and enjoyable as possible as well as helping students to gain confidence. I encourage them to try and find answers themselves, even if they are not fully sure. It is important not to be too self-conscious about making mistakes... everyone does! Outside of tutoring, I love to spend time traveling, meeting new people, exploring new cultures. I am also a ballet dancer and I do a lot of yoga! I’m very flexible with my hours, I can work weekdays/on the weekend/in the evening. Au plaisir de te rencontrer, A bientôt! Anaïs

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!

Is it challenging to learn the French language without a French tutor in Surrey?

Various aspects of French, such as a common alphabet and common vocabulary, make it a more approachable foreign language than many others to learn for English speakers. However, like with all languages, it is an undeniable challenge to get up to those higher levels of fluency and you will inevitably encounter moments of deflation. An online or private French tutor will help you move through these moments by making sure you are consistently seeing improvement in your level. At Tutor House, we have tutors that are native French speakers, so they can assist you in learning the authentic French language. What are you waiting for? Hire the perfect French tutor in Surrey today!

How much does hiring a French tutor in Surrey cost?

The cost of hiring a French tutor in Surrey will depend upon a number of factors, such as the length and frequency of lessons, the qualifications of your chosen tutor, and your area in Surrey. Generally speaking though, you can expect to pay anywhere between £20-£90/hr for French tuition from expert online and private French tutors.

Learn to Speak French with a French Tutor in Surrey

If you’re feeling a pull towards learning a foreign language, French is a great place to start. French and English share a vast quantity of common vocabulary, from strong similarities to identical words, which makes the learning process substantially easier than with many other languages. We also share an alphabet and many aspects of sentence structure… Oh, and we’re a quick two-hour train journey from Paris. 

 

However, this is not to say that learning French is without its challenges. The grammar can be frustrating at times, and the pronunciation (particularly of r-rich words) can be tough for English speakers to get their heads around. Your Surrey French tutor will accompany you through every stage of your progression in French, whatever your prior knowledge of the language. So whether you’re a beginner and know nothing beyond ‘bonjour’ or a more advanced speaker looking to make the tough leap from B2 to C1, our French tutors can help you speak French like a native speaker.

 

To sign up with a French tutor in Surrey, contact the Tutor House team (via phone, email or webchat) to talk through your tutoring options. Alternatively, browse our selection of brilliant French tutors and choose who you’d like to proceed with. À bientôt!
