- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach French (A-level and GCSE) and English(EFL). I am also willing to teach anyone who just generally wants to 'brush up' on their French.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
At GCSE, I gained 8 A's, 1 B and 2 C's (grade A in French)
At A-level, I gained an A in Maths, A in Physics and B in French.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £17 per hour; however, for the student's first hour of tutoring, I only charge £10.
- Where do you teach?
I can travel by car to the student's home. However, should they wish, I can also conduct lessons from my own home - whichever way suits the student suits me! I live in Fallowfield, South Manchester, but I am willing to travel to anywhere within the city itself or the surrounding area i.e. Stockport, Stretford, Urmston, Salford, Prestwich etc. Tutoring via MSN is also an option.
- When are you available?
Anytime! Ring me and we'll discuss.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I can tutor students at either GCSE or A-level. I am also willing to help anyone of any age brush up on their French skills, be it language, oral or grammar. I also teach anyone of any age learning English as a foreign language.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can tutor online, via MSN.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Being a student myself at the University of Manchester (studying French and Linguistics), I fully understand today's demands on language students. I take my degree seriously and I teach enthusiastically. I think that a lot of people these days forget how important it actually is to learn a foreign language. Showing that you have bilingual skills looks good to both employers and potential universities alike as these skills are transferable to all jobs and academic subject areas. I think that the more languages you have under your belt, the more the world opens up to you.
So, if you're a parent or student reading this and you find my profile at least partly interesting, please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and give me a ring any time!
- What kind of experience do you have?
In the first year of my degree course, I frequently met up with a French native speaker to 'swap languages' (organised through Manchester University's 'Face-2-Face' service). We would meet a couple of times a week to tutor each other in our respective native languages and I found the experience invaluable in not only giving me some good teaching practice, but also improving my fluency in French.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I am just about to start work as an ELA (English Language Assistant) to gain some more experience in teaching. This will be a 7 month placement and is part of my degree course.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I am currently tutoring a student online via MSN. He's fitting 2 years of GCSE French into one year at Year 9, so it should be a challenge but I'm confident he'll pass with flying colours!
