« Kate was an excellent tutor for my younger brother. He really struggled with Spanish in school because he found lessons boring and was really motivated to learn.

French lessons delivered in group or individual classes by a MA graduate with a passion for languages

Methodology

I vary my methods according to my pupils as there are a variety of learners and I believe each student should have their classes delivered in a way that will improve their results the most. In general, I adopt a communicative approach to classes, ensuring students have maximum time immersed in the language, speaking and performing activities in the target language.

Background

I am a language graduate from the University of Manchester and have a MA in TESOL from the University of Liverpool. I have over six years experience tutoring, helping students from primary to a-level improve their grades. I have also lived in France for six months giving me insight into different francophone cultures and accents which I am able to pass onto my students.
