Kieran - Hatton - French

Methodology

I break down the language learning process into small, easy to manage chunks which enables you to progress at a very quick pace without getting overwhelmed or confused.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and English as a foreign language to all learners including holiday makers, businessmen and GCSE, A level and university students.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA in Modern Foreign Languages

- How much do you charge?

Lessons start at £30 per hour

- Where do you teach?

I am based in Burton-upon-Trent but I can travel to some areas in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and all over Staffordshire. However, for those students who don`t live nearby, I also provide online lessons via Skype. I use special on screen whiteboard technology to enable me to keep the lessons interactive.

- When are you available?

Monday to Friday - tutoring available all day from 9am - 11pm
Saturday - tutoring available from 9am - 6:30pm
Sunday - tutoring available from 5:30pm - 11pm

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Language tuition is offered to students of all ages and for all levels including primary, early secondary school, GCSE, A level, degree level and adult learners.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I have many years' experience preparing students for GCSE and A level exams. Also, I help train degree level students to write essays and dissertations and how to improve their already advanced level language skills so that the higher marks are gained in speaking, reading, writing and listening assessments.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tuition is available via Skype. Simply request my username and lessons will take place at a predetermined time.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Anybody can learn a language. Never think that language learning is too difficult for you, with my unique methodology you will be surprised at how quickly you can pick up the language. My methodology breaks down the language into small, bite-sized pieces and we show you how to build it back up, allowing you to say whatever you want to say. I also use various techniques to give you the confidence to speak with foreigners without feeling worried that you're not going to understand what is going to be said back to you.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for seven years both privately and in schools working with a range of students of all ages and I have also had successful experiences teaching languages to students with learning difficulties. In my opinion, anybody can learn a language!

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

I am trained in the Fuente Languages' learning methodology which I also helped to develop.

Using this methodology I break down the learning process into different stages. I understand that the main aim of any language learner is to be able to speak and understand the language as quickly as possible so the first stage is to give you the most useful words in the foreign language and show you how to put them together into phrases. This gets you speaking straight away and you'll be learning to say things that you're actually going to need to say.

Then, once you've grasped the fundamentals (which won't take very long) I'll begin to add structure to the language. The structure of any language is called its 'grammar' and I'll explain all this in a simple and easy to understand manner, and by knowing the structure you'll be able to talk about anything you want. At the same time I'll constantly be adding new vocabulary and showing you techniques to remember it all.

The most important part of learning a language, which separates it from any other subject, is to learn how to make it become second nature. I've developed various techniques, which I call the “Pillars of Communication”, and these are very useful in showing you how to make speaking the foreign language into a reflex action you'll be able to say what you want to say without having to think about how to say it. The aim of the “Pillars of Communication” techniques is to build proficiency to a high enough level that you'll be able to speak in Spanish, French, German, Italian or Portuguese just as you do in English. Some of these techniques include “linking”, which is where you'll learn to link certain groups of words together to help you speak more quickly. Another is “motors” this technique helps you reach fluency fast. And an extremely useful technique is one called “chunking”, which will help you to tune your ear into the intonation, rhythm and accent of the foreign language so you can understand what's being said to you.

On top of all this I'll show you how to work on your own foreign accent so you can sound like a native speaker and I'll teach you some idioms and colloquialisms so you'll understand how most people really speak.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a tutor with Fuente Languages and also KB Tuition.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students range from school pupils and university undergraduates to professionals and holiday makers. I can cater for many needs and prepare you for any linguistic situations such as exams, interviews, meetings and presentations.

You helped me learn German by starting with the basics and progressing further, I felt I learned more in the first hour than I did in a whole year at school. I now find German interesting and I am finally confident about my work, I couldn't have done it without you.

Your lessons were definitely much better than the ones I was used to in school and I don't think I would have passed my exams without you. Thank you very much for all your help!

The best language teacher that I've encountered, the methods are unique. It was amazing how quickly I picked up Spanish!

R

I have been very fortunate to watch Kieran at work for the past 7 weeks. He is passionate, he is committed to making a difference. This has huge potential both here in this school and beyond.

Robert

 The simple approach of using verbal repetition with the pupils worked well as a way of engaging the pupils. Kieran has been seen to use positive reinforcement with the pupils; for example in some instances taking the blame if a pupil cannot answer a question correctly and therefore helping to boost their self esteem.

I didn't think I would be able to speak English in a short time like I have. I can now go to England with the confidence that I will be able to communicate.

You've proved that an old dog can certainly learn new tricks (and a completely new language!). I never thought learning a language could be so easy. Grazie mille per le lezione brillanti.
