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 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

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.
