« Ms Gibb has recently completed a period of tutoring my son in both French and English at Higher level. Her experience is apparent in her relaxed manner with various ages and personalities. My family found her approachable, friendly,quick to respond. She successfully identified weak areas of learning for structured improvement and clarified both: the objectives and techniques, so my son's preparation and confidence have improved. I would be happy to recommend her »

Jane - Kingswells - ESOL (English)

Methodology

My pupils tell me that 'learning' is fun and very enriching: I love life and words.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English (and as a Foreign language) French and German

- Tell me about your qualifications.

MA(Hons) French, RSA (Bilingual Secretary) , TESOL (Trinity) Proofreader (Chapterhouse)

- How much do you charge?

£25.00 per hour for one to one,but it is negotiable depending on the level required, age and number (discount applicable) of students involved, so the range is £20.00 to £30.00

- Where do you teach?

I normally teach at the students home and can travel 20-30 miles from Aberdeen. I am happy to teach in my home or at a student's office.

- When are you available?

Monday to Saturday to 10.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach beginners, GCSE (General, Credit and Higher) in English French and German, up to Degree and adults for further professional qualifications. My youngest pupil was 3 and the oldest 87.Some of my EFL students have been total novices, not one word of English and that is an intriguing team effort.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE General and Higher Grades and up to Cambridge Gold Certificate. IELTS (Grade 4-6) ,Goethe Institute Exams A1 to B3, International Baccalaureate.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I frequently help students online by e-mail between tutorials.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Plato said "speech is thought":- I love life and I believe in the power of words, our tools for communication. Languages are living entities with their own systems, sounds and appearances and how we put them together just varies from country to country. Mastering that art is learning a language and my pupils tell me it is fun and enriching because it is a team effort. Success comes from matching pupil and tutor commitment to the students goals: so happy learning

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Ten years overseas and in the UK, both full time in school and as a private tutor has given me wonderfully broad multi-national, cross linguistic experiences. At one international school I was on the board of examiners for liasion interpreting (German/English) for foreign correspondents and taught both groups and executives in very diverse industries in their equally diverse disciplines IT, marketing , R&D, Sales, HR. Previously French and German expertise led to senior positions with major service and operator oil industry companies, as PA, translator, remits in marketing, credit control and HR led to travel and work abroad in Cairo, Malta, Tunisia, Germany and France.It has been a privilege to help Russians, Indonesians, Libyans, Colombians, Argentinians, and Chinese Executives and their families with English as a Foreign Language., which coupled with ongoing GCSE students'English requirements has been incredibly illuminating and rewarding.

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

I have an Enhanced Disclosure

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at Inlingua Cheltenham, and then in Bavaria

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My currents students: a 6 year old boy with learning difficulties in English, H grade English and French (lovely candidates wanting to improve their grades), General Grade French, Business/technical French and German oil industry executives, English as a foreign language to a student of a Masters Degree in International Marketing, German to a GCSE Higher Grade student, a lovely Russian Couple learning German, Chinese mother and daughter, a Spanish Masters Graduate in Aeronautical Engineering, (English and German), a brilliant MRI Scanner drug research expert from Dubai (English), Norwegian and Spanish speaking and Russian born children (English and French) a highly respected Indonesian Lawyer and Ambassador and his entire family (English).

Thank you for being such a good tutor for me over the past few weeks. I feel you really helped me in fully understanding what to do in the exam; how to answer questions correctly. You were so much fun to be around and easy to talk to that I found myself actually wanting to do the work! I am feeling quite confident. Your methods of teaching and techniques are brilliant.

Learning can be difficult, having a good teacher makes it easier. For that we thank you Jane. I particularly enjoyed hearing the squeals of laughter. A great quality to make children laugh whilst learning. We will miss you.
