« Hilary tutored me for AS and A2 French over 2 years. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a language tutor. She is extremely reliable and friendly. She helped me to focus on the areas that needed improvement, whether that be grammar, listening, essay writing etc. She takes great interest in her pupil's success and I really enjoyed my lessons with her. »

Hilary - Central Dudley - French

Methodology

As a secondary teacher with experience of adult education and private tuition, I believe that competence in one or more foreign languages is very important for academic,work and leisure purposes.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French, German and Spanish.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA (Hons) 2:1 in French, German and Economic Studies (University of Northumbria) with distinction in spoken German
'A' Level Spanish (Grade A)

- How much do you charge?

I generally charge between £25 per hour for individual tuition in my own home or £28 in the home of the tutee up to and including GCSE. For 'A' level tuition I charge between £30 and £33 per hour.
I would prefer to teach within a radius of 10-15 miles from my home.
I would offer reduced rates for small groups.
I am also willing to teach within businesses and have experience in this area.

- Where do you teach?

I am willing to teach either in my own home or in the home of the student or at a workplace.
I prefer to teach north of the Tyne within 10-15 miles of Newcastle but am willing to discuss other options.

- When are you available?

I am currently available during the day and in the evenings Monday to Thursday (except Monday evenings)

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach ages 11-18 up to GCSE and 'A' Level.
I am also happy to tutor adults and older Primary age children.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE/IGCSE in French, German and Spanish. 'A' Level French and German.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am friendly and understand the needs of students as I have experience of a range of GCSE/IGCSE and 'A' level syllabuses in Languages.
I consider the work that I do with students to be a partnership, and would expect that they put as much effort into this as I do in order to make good progress.
My approach is centred on the individual targets and ability of my students.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught languages for 30 years both within the State and Independent sectors up to GCSE and 'A' Level.
I have also taught adult evening classes within Newcastle and North Tyneside, as well as doing private tuition within my local area.

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

Yes I have a valid DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my PGCE in Secondary Modern Languages at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have recently tutored students for GCSE and 'A' level French and German as well as younger students beginning their studies of French, German and Spanish.
I have also tutored adults at a variety of levels on an individual basis in French, Spanish and German for the purposes of pleasure and business, as well as a group of business people in local firms.

Hilary tutored me for AS and A2 French over 2 years. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a language tutor. She is extremely reliable and friendly. She helped me to focus on the areas that needed improvement, whether that be grammar, listening, essay writing etc. She takes great interest in her pupil's success and I really enjoyed my lessons with her.

A fantastic tutor whose teaching definitely improved my GCSE grade! I achieved above my predicted grade. The oral work was really useful and I learnt so much from the one-to-one tutor sessions.
