I am a qualified teacher of Modern Languages and former Head of Department with 16 years' experience in secondary schools, further education and sixth form colleges. I hold a B.A. (Hons) in European Studies (French and Spanish) and the Postgraduate Certificate in Education from the University of Bath.
In 2003 I became a self-employed language tutor, teaching French and Spanish from beginner to degree level. I provide classes for leisure or holiday purposes, tuition for families moving to France or Spain, exam coaching for students at GCSE, AS and A level, and language training for businesses.
There are many advantages to private tuition compared with college-based learning: tuition is tailor-made to suit the needs of individual students using appropriate materials; the time and duration of lessons can be adapted to accommodate students with irregular work patterns; there are clearly more opportunities to practise the language on a 1-1 or small group basis, and all ages are welcome.
I am also able to translate French and Spanish into English and vice versa for businesses and private individuals at very competitive rates. Work is supplied in Word format and emailed to the customer on completion.
France is the most popular tourist destination in the world, with over 60 million visitors per year. The British make up a large proportion of these visitors, but many French people do not speak English, especially in the more rural areas, making a knowledge of the language important, and for those with properties in France, it is essential to be able to converse with officials, tradesmen and neighbours.
Spanish is the third most widely spoken language in the world with some 400 million speakers, and is the official first language of 22 countries. More than 15 million British tourists visit Spain and Spanish-speaking countries every year, and knowing the language makes your holiday easier and more enjoyable. Many British people own properties in Spain and find it extremely useful, and sometimes essential, to be able to speak Spanish.
