Chris- Exeter tutor for all levels in French and German. In your own home Ukcat

Methodology

It has been my pleasure to help numerous people achieve their potential in learning French and German. Don't just take my word for it- Click "View my FULL profile" above and read what my students have said about me. All are happy to be contacted

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French and German. This includes tailoring the different language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing to the individual client's requirements.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

MA and MPhil in Modern Languages. ( French and German) ( University of Oxford). Qualified teacher status - PGCE (French and German) ( Education dept. reference no: 75/91300)

- How much do you charge?

My fees are £39 per hour for one-to -one tuition. ( It is sometimes possible to offer tuition in a small group of 2, 3 or 4 students should 2, 3 or 4 people wish to get together for their sessions. This is offered at £25 per person per hour) I offer a FREE initial consultation- this is usually for about 45 minutes to an hour- this enables the student's exact requirements to be discussed, gives a chance to get to know each other and for any additional matters to be raised by potential students before they finally make up their minds.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to teach at home or to travel to students' homes- up to a distance of about 40 miles. I mainly teach in the Exeter area but am happy to travel throughout Devon and Somerset. To date I have tutored in Exeter, Exmouth,Newton Abbot, Torquay, Tiverton, Taunton, Uffculme, Halberton, and have additionally had clients come to our home from as far as Barnstaple and Okehampton.

- When are you available?

I am always available at times to suit my students' circumstances so this means being available from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week. I fully realise that for many people the most convenient times may be at weekends or in the evenings. Many students ask if they can continue during school/college holidays and this can usually be accommodated. I also offer ( as a result of students' requests) Pre- AS level tuition in French and German during the period from late June to the end of August each year- this has helped many who have just completed GCSE exams in easing the transition from GCSE to study at AS level. I am available between tutorial sessons by text, email, phone and skype to assist current ( and some former) students in any way possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

As I mentioned elsewhere -- my youngest current student is 12 (year 8 ) and my oldest is 86! From absolute beginner through GCSE........ A Level..... IB......University entrance and for business and professional purposes. Some are learning just for fun while others are preparing for examinations at all levels up to and including degree level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

To date I have assisted students in preparing for GCSE, A/S level, A level,( of all the current examination boards), International Baccalaureate (all levels),and degree level.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

For online tutoring, I find it best to have agreed work beforehand and then continue the session via skype or an IM system using a webcam.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Anyone can learn a foreign language given the right tutor. Have a look at my article on this site called " Get the most value oft of your language lessons" Tips for learning languages" I look forward to speaking with you and to making a start with helping you to achieve your goals in language learning. Do, please get in touch. Kind regards, Chris Heaven

Background

Over 30 years professional experience in secondary education as a languages specialist, Head of Modern Foreign Languages and examiner for GCSE and A level. I have taught people from the ages of 11 to 18 in secondary schools and have also tutored both undergraduate and postgraduate university students. Furthermore I have experience of tutoring Adult learners some of whom wish to learn for fun/travel etc whilst others are keen to be able to use French or German for business purposes.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My many clients range from absolute beginners to advanced students. Some are studying just for fun, many for exams. others for university entrance and others for business and professional reasons. My youngest student is 12 and my most senior in 86! I have a comprehensive file of past and present students and all have indicated that they are willing to be contacted to speak about how they have found their learning experience with me. You can see some of the references from them here on line in the "testimonials" section--please feel free to ask me if you would like to speak to them personally before taking things any further ( I have permission to give you phone contact details) and I will arrange it.

Chris

We are delighted to recommend Chris to any potential students, he is able to engage the youngsters in their interests and develops them with positive encouragement to their full potential. In German our own son lacked areas of confidence in the subject, but his amazing results of A grade at GCSE this summer speak for themselves.

Tess

We have been deeply impressed with Chris as a tutor of French and English Lit for our son. We hired Chris for weekly sessions just a few months before our son’s GCSEs because he was failing in French and not doing as well in English as his school said he could do. Our son really took to Chris who was a very kindly, informative and confidence-building presence. The results which we have just had speak for themselves - an 8 in English Lit and a 7 in French. Amazing results. Thanks so much Chris! We know you made a huge difference! Our son couldn’t have done it without you!

Mike

Chris has tutored me for a few years during which time he has patiently and thoroughly taught me French from a basic level up to college standard. He is keen to provide an analysis of French grammar, and teach rules and threads such that they can be applied and re-applied in spoken and written work.
He is always happy to return to work already covered so that I get a good grounding and can remember previous topics.

Eddie

Chris has been teaching me German since the beginning of 2018. The lessons are very enjoyable and Chris has profound knowledge of this subject. Chris has a relaxed but structured style of teaching and encourages questions and discussion around the subject. Chris does not teach by rote as in school, but teaches you how to work with the language and think in German. I would recommend Chris as he is a very experienced tutor and a thoroughly nice man.

Sarah-Jane

Chris is an excellent tutor. He is patient and kind an extremely knowledgeable. He helped me progress quickly and helped me get a great grade at University - one I certainly would not have achieved without him. I can’t recommend him enough - he gave me my confidence back and helped me enjoy French again, which wasn’t an easy task in itself! I am so grateful to Chris for all of his help.

Gabrielle

I know Chris through recent shared involvement in church music of the highest standard. His French tutoring will be thus given at the same high standard, as is all his work. He is a kind and gentle person, who will relate well with his students, whilst giving them the best tuition in this subject.

Rod

I have only known Chris for a year or 2. I can imagine he is brilliant as a Tutor as he is a patient amusing mild-mannered man I have ever met. I also know him as a friend and to have a friend of his caliber is indeed a privilege. So yes I do highly recommend him to be your Tutor. You won't be disappointed.

Ian

A well qualified and successful tutor and a good chap all round.

J
Jason

I can thoroughly recommend Chris as a trustworthy gentleman.
