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
