Experienced languages teacher Hilary offers tuition in North Gosforth area in French, German and Spanish from beginners to A Level

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.

I would highly recommend Hilary to anyone wanting to learn a language. I was a complete beginner but with Hilary's help and patience, I feel confident to practice what I have learnt when on holiday. Hilary quickly assessed my learning style and has developed a range or resources to help me learn, including some fun and innovative games!

Hilary is a brilliant teacher with years of experience. Teaching methods are fun and she has an abundance of patience.

I have been having lessons with Hilary for over a year. She is a superb teacher and makes learning fun. She spends time and thought preparing lessons which cover all aspects of French:- conversation, current affairs, culture and grammar. I’ve learnt loads and gained confidence with Hilary. I can thoroughly recommend her

Lesley

Hilary is the ideal tutor! She combines warmth and friendliness with excellent linguistic skills and creative teaching methods that make learning fun. She is versatile, having helped my elderly mother who was a total beginner in French and myself, a confirmed francophone. I didn't know who to book when I was first looking for a language tutor. Luckily, I found Hilary's profile! I couldn't have picked a better teacher - down-to-earth and hard-working, going the extra mile for her students, with breathtaking results. I never thought I would hear my old mum speak French! You can put your trust in Hilary 100 percent. She will not only teach you a language but she will make you love it, too! In fact, we think of her as a friend.

Hilary has tutored 2 of my children and they have not only benefited greatly but have also enjoyed the sessions. She is reliable, professional , organised and builds good rapport with her students , I have no hesitation in recommending her as a first class tutor .

Hilary was our daughter's German tutor. She was exceptional and our daughter was so happy to have been taught by Hilary as Hilary could solve any questions asked in simple terms to make her understand easily. Also, whenever my daughter sent questions via email, Hilary helped her straight away via eMail as well.
Our daughter got A* in German in GCSE and she was confident right from the beginning as Hilary was there to help her with any difficult questions.
Hilary was always punctual and she always took extra care to make sure that our daughter understood everything clearly. The classes with Hilary helped her learn German so easily that our daughter rarely spent time outside of the class on German - this allowed her to spend her time on other subjects that she wanted to master.
We have no hesitations in recommending Hilary to anyone and she is definitely a great teacher!

M
Moira

Hilary has taught both of my home educated children. She taught my son A level German and he passed with an A. She has taught my daughter GCSE French and Spanish and she passed with A* in both. Currently, she is preparing my daughter for her first year of A level study in German and French.
Hilary is an excellent tutor, very well organised and her lessons are well prepared with excellent resources. Homework is marked constructively.
Hilary is a warm, trustworthy person with a wealth of teaching experience. She was able to adapt her teaching style so that both of my children reached their full potential as they learn very differently.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hilary to anyone looking for a tutor in French, Spanish or German.

John

I have been attending a weekly French conversation class with Hilary for twelve months and each session is, without fail, both interesting and stimulating. Her informal and friendly style belies the depth of her knowledge and also her ability to tailor her approach to the level and interest of the student. Every meeting is enjoyable, covering a variety of topics and themes and, at the same time incorporating aspects of grammar in a seamless but very effective manner - a complete contrast from my formal lessons at school.
I recommend Hilary highly to anyone wishing to learn or improve their French in a very stimulating way.

G
Gemma

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.

Money well spent! My A* was directly the result of this excellent tutoring which built my confidence and also enthused me to work hard and achieve at the highest level
