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

¡Hola! Soy Berna, from Spain a very experienced and motivated teacher accustomed to deal with all ages students from all over the world. I’m teaching Spanish since 1998, clearly I really love teaching and dealing students. No student is like another and that's why my lessons are always “customer focused”. After checking students’ level, we agree on what are their interests and needs. Then I focus classes transmitting calm, celebrating successes and making see that mistakes are normal and with time and patience they will be overcome. I'm approachable, patient and understanding and my highest priority is efficiency. That’s why my lessons are absolutely “customer focused”: - Grammar. - Conversation. - Vocabulary. - Spanish for Specific Purposes (Healthcare, Tourism and Business Professional). - Preparation for official exams as: DELE, SIELE or Diploma in Spanish for Business. I really love classroom teaching but I'm quite convinced that future teaching is online teaching. ¡Gracias y hasta la vista!

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 in Linguistics in Granada University, Spain where I also obtained my teaching degree. I taught Spanish Literature and Grammar in high school in Seville. Later on I lived in Egypt with a research grant and I taught University students Spanish language and literature. After that I moved to New York and worked as a translator and editor for an international company during five years. I moved to London in 2003 and started working in primary schools as a Teaching Assistant. Soon after I started to work as a private tutor preparing students for SATs exams in primary (years 2 and 6) in Maths and English. I have also been preparing students for their GCSE and A-levels Spanish exams both in AQA and EDEXCEL boards helping them obtain grades A and A*. Currently I teach Spanish for adults in ETNA College at different levels, from beginners to advanced. I also prepare students for their primary and secondary. In primary I cover SATs exams for year 2 and 6. In secondary I support students in their general learning through out the course and teach them how to take their exams in addition to preparing students for GCSE and A level Spanish exams.

I'm an experienced science and language tutor with more than 10 years of teaching. SCIENCES I'm doing a PhD in Biology at the University of Oxford and have taught both within the university and in private summer schools in Oxford on the topic. I teach both high school students who need help preparing for exams, as well as university students who want to go in-depth within a certain subject or understand course material. My methods focus on applied learning, which means I'll help you understand why it is important to learn something and what you can do with that knowledge, not just how to learn. My teaching method for A-level students focuses on problem-based learning similar to university admissions interviews. I am comfortable teaching younger students in a variety of science subjects, including students with learning difficulties. You can expect a very fun, hands-on approach to learning. LANGUAGES I have extensive experience in teaching IELTS and other language exams (CPE, TOEFL). I have taught students successfully at the last minute. My approach is very tailored to the individual, so we would focus on the most effective techniques for the student. I have studied Spanish for over 10 years and obtained the highest certificate in Spanish as Foreign Language (DELE) with distinction. I was awarded first prize in many Spanish international competitions. For four years, I did courses in Spanish geography, history and culture, and I normally use what I learned to make my classes interactive and more than a way of teaching a language. I like immersing people in the Spanish culture, with its food, dances, famous painters and explorers. Have taught Spanish as foreign language for more than ten years, in one-to-one and one-to-few sessions. I adapt my style to the students I work with - for one, it can be all about having fun while translating lyrics of famous songs and watching Spanish short films (audio, experiential learners); for another it can be about rigorously tackling grammar and crafting complex stories. Regardless of the approach, you should expect that after a year of weekly/fortnightly classes you would advance by two levels (e.g. A2 to B2). I wholeheartedly recommend trying learning a language from a non-native speaker, as the way a foreign language is learned is very different from a native tongue. If you speak foreign languages, you know what I mean. If not, just give it a go!

I studied in Uruguay, Latin America, both in the public sector and in the private sector. (Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Education in the public sector where I was awarded a diploma in Communications and Journalism). In the private sector, I got formal advanced qualifications in language teaching. I taught in public high schools in Latin America a range of subjects that also included Mathematics, French and English. I combined my duties as teacher in secondary education institutions with a broadcasting and journalism career both in the private sector and in the public sector. Before coming to the United Kingdom where I worked for the British Broadcasting Corporation, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and branches of the Ministry of Defence, I worked as Head of Parliamentary Broadcasting (Coordinator of Broadcasting) in charge of coverage of parliamentary activities for the State Broadcasting System in Uruguay. For the BBC, I performed tasks as producer and presenter of main current affairs, soft current affairs and feature programmes in Spanish langue and also as translator, interpreter and voice coach being involved in digital television. For the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, I translated, presented and produced programmes via the Central Office of Information, London Radio Service, British Satellite News and acted as trainer for diplomats and trade agents via The Centre for International Briefing. In the private sector, I have worked for a wide range of organisations and agencies including but not exclusively the International Maritime Organisation, Videotel Marine, Voice and Script International, Foreign Versions - this has included both British companies, foreign companies and international organisations. I have a wide range of interests including politics, economics, social development and education. I strongly believe that education is a key factor and that having the right motivation is an indispensable ingredient of the recipe for success. What students learn must be seen as meaningful and relevant to their life experiences. There must be a clear sense of purpose for them to be fully engaged in the learning process.

Hi! My name is Paula, I am a Chilean private tutor who teaches Spanish, EFL and singing. I have been a tutor for over 6 years now. Starting in Chile, I taught international students who needed to learn Spanish in order to integrate to their schools or workplaces. In addition, I helped students that were new to the international school and needed support with EFL in order to successfully take part in their lessons. Around that time, I also began teaching singing lessons privately and as a Music TA. When I moved to London I decided to continue private tutoring as a full-time job, as I find one-on-one lessons to be very fulfilling. It really is very inspiring to be able to help a student gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to expand their horizons. My teaching philosophy is based on setting the highest standards for all my students based on their needs. I firmly believe that a tutor’s highest responsibility is to bring forth the extensive potential of their student while further developing their personal interest and engagement with the subject. Because of my experience working in diverse teaching environments, I have had the pleasure of using different learning styles and creating unique studying atmospheres for students.

My name is Jonah and I am a graduate in Spanish and Linguistics from University of Oxford. In addition to Spanish and linguistics, I am interested in, and tutor, a variety of other subjects, namely French, Portuguese, English language, English literature and Maths. My attitude towards tutoring revolves primarily around the confidence of a student, and I have observed first-hand the major role that self-belief plays in learning. In my experience, what can often hold a student back is a lack of self-belief rather than a lack of ability for a given subject. Therefore, my tutoring style places an emphasis on nurturing confidence in a student. For example, I encourage all of my students to ask questions (I am of the opinion that there is no such thing as a stupid question!) in order that they are completely clear on, and therefore, confident of, the subject matter. I have found that a student with a high level of self-belief has a much greater propensity to take the lead in sessions and, as a result, to learn more efficiently and to enjoy the given subject! My extensive knowledge of language (I speak Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian) and understanding of linguistics put me in a perfect position to tutor and teach these subjects as there are few language-related difficulties that I have not before encountered myself as a student. My number one priority in teaching languages is the student's understanding of grammar as knowledge of the structure of language is both what is rewarded at the higher end of mark schemes and what gives the student confidence when they come to use their language skills. That said, I am fully aware of the importance of practicing the spoken element of a given language and in this way, learning more intuitively. In my opinion, a happy balance between the two is most conducive to language learning. In many ways the formulaic, structured and rule-based nature of language is reminiscent of mathematics and perhaps it is for this reason that I chose to study it at A level. Although I did not go on to study maths at university, it was my favourite subject by the end of my school career and I often wish I had taken it further. As with languages, I believe confidence is key to the apprehension of mathematics and, therefore, I encourage my students to see maths as a series of puzzles to be solved rather than a set of daunting exam questions. Please don't hesitate to get in touch for any further questions!

I studied basic Spanish at school but forgot most of it and lost any confidence in using it. Javier gave me regular tuition for about half a year, during which my Spanish improved significantly. Javier is reliable, encouraging and brought out the best in me.
