Cardiff languages graduate gives Italian and French tuition in Mendip area

Methodology

I am able to tailor lessons and learning techniques to meet the needs of every student.
Happy to meet with parents and students to discuss the support they need.
Spent five months studying in France and five in Italy, living with native speakers. As a result of this, I gained a near-native command of the language and became aware of various regional dialects and variations of the languages.

Background

Taught my Italian and French housemates English. As a result, they became more confident when speaking the language through speaking following my encouragement in an informal context. I also helped them remember new vocabulary and grammar rules through repetition, which I found facilitated the learning process.
