Hello! I'm Chris! I love learning languages and sharing my knowledge with others. If you've found normal classes with traditional grammar study to be a bit of drag, I might be able to help you out.
I speak Spanish at a very high level, and am currently learning a plethora of other languages all without opening a grammar book. Don't worry! My grammar is spot on, in fact (here comes the shameless blowing of one's own trumpet!) I am consistently getting first class grades in all my Spanish assignments at degree level. I've spent over 10 years learning foreign languages and I know there are far more interesting ways to acquire grammar than simply having your teacher spout complex rules at you from a book!
Don't hesitate to get in touch! I won't bite!
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
English as a foreign language
Spanish (GCSE, A-Level, I can even help out other degree students or simply teach you because you want to learn for fun)
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I am currently a degree student studying Modern Foreign Languages. I can speak Spanish at beyond degree level.
- How much do you charge?
I charge 15 pounds an hour. The first class is, of course, free so we can determine your language learning needs!
- Where do you teach?
I am willing to teach at home or travel to nearby towns including, but not limited to, Petersfield, Clanfield, Catherington, Horndean, Lovedean, Waterlooville, Cosham or Portsmouth.
Or if you'd rather I can give tuition over Skype, so it doesn't matter how far away you live!
- When are you available?
Monday - all day
Tuesday - all day
Wednesday - all day
Thursday - all day
Friday - mornings
Saturday - mornings
During July I will only be able to teach late afternoons and evenings as I will be teaching Spanish children English.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I'm willing to teach anybody who's willing to learn. I can teach anyone from absolute beginner to degree level.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Any qualifications they like!
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can teach over Skype or Windows Live Messenger; both are free to download!
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a firm believer in the power of natural language acquisition and use many ideas based on this to help students progress fast. My goal is to combine your personal interests with language learning to make the process enjoyable and therefore more memorable! I have also developed a pretty good Spanish accent, and hopefully I will be able to share with you some tips and tricks to help you sound more Spanish!
- What kind of experience do you have?
During the summer holidays I spend the mornings working in a language school teaching English to Spanish children. I have taken classes in a huge number of languages and know what works and what doesn't. I have spent a considerable amount of time in Spain studying at La Universidad de Salamanca.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Nope, but I can get one if it's necessary.
