I base the level and content of my classes on the individual I am tutoring. Every student is different and so I approach every class depending on the student's prior knowledge, ability to learn and willingness to learn. I am a friendly and enthusiastic tutor, with the ability to speak French, Spanish and Russian to facilitate classes with international students. I am happy to tutor in grammar, vocabulary, conversation practice and aspects of culture! The first class with me will always be free, so please get in touch if you would like to find out more about what I can offer!
I am studying a BA in Modern Languages at the University of Birmingham, focussing on French and Russian. I have experience in face-to-face and online tutoring with A-level students.

I studied Spanish with Tom at Sixth Form College. Out of everyone in the class, he was the most outstanding and hardworking student I have ever seen as he was always well prepared and continued to receive achievements of being top in the class. Even now, I still see his strong interest in learning and teaching languages. He also teaches students since Sixth Form and in university. He is very patient, calm and will always be there to help you. I have seen how committed he is to help others and how well prepared he is to ensure the best tutoring is given to his tutees. He is the best tutor you never had and I strongly recommend you to have him as your tutor!
Tom is an excellent linguist and has worked with our A level French and Spanish students this year face to face and via Teams - students get on well with him, he is patient and enthusiastic and adapts his approach to suit the individual students. Our students have improved hugely in confidence, fluency and the complexity of their language.
Tom is an excellent tutor thanks to his proficient skills as a linguist combined with his patient and supportive approach.
Tom has been tutoring some of our A Level French and Spanish students, who have been full of praise for his sessions. It is clear that Tom’s students benefit greatly from his knowledge, input and support. I can confidently recommend Tom for anyone looking for language learning support - a fantastic linguist and a lovely person too!
