Academic of French with bachelors in Modern languages, ready to tutor those who need help with French, Spanish and Italian at any level.

Methodology

My name is Margarita Stewart and I give lessons to students from primary school level to 1st year University level in French, Spanish and Italian.
My lesson structure depends on what each student requires, however I find it most beneficial to the student to incorporate as much speaking in the foreign language as possible, even when explaining instructions for an activity that is written for example.
Although I am very methodical in my approach, I know that each student learns and thrives at a different pace, and am flexible to work to where they feel comfortable whilst pushing them to reach their full potential. I'm very friendly and approachable, and am open to suggestions if a student has specific idea in mind for their next class.

Background

My name is Margarita Stewart and I have experience teaching and tutoring Modern languages from primary school level to university level for 3 years, including teaching and tutoring English in France and Spain with a maximum of 20 students per class. I tutor anything from grammar to pronunciation for those who wish to improve their French, Spanish or Italian. I am half Spanish.
