Personal Message
As a secondary teacher with experience of adult education and private tuition, I believe that competence in one or more foreign languages is very important for academic,work and leisure purposes.

Where do you teach?
I am willing to teach either in my own home or in the home of the student or at a workplace.

Where and with whom did you train?
I did my PGCE in Secondary Modern Languages at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I have recently tutored students for GCSE and 'A' level French and German as well as younger students beginning their studies of French, German and Spanish.
I have also tutored adults at a variety of levels on an individual basis in French, Spanish and German for the purposes of pleasure and business, as well as a group of business people in local firms.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am friendly and understand the needs of students as I have experience of a range of GCSE/IGCSE and 'A' level syllabuses in Languages.
I consider the work that I do with students to be a partnership, and would expect that they put as much effort into this as I do in order to make good progress.
My approach is centred on the individual targets and ability of my students.
