My mission is to show people is that learning a language is not as difficult as many people might think- not to mention it can be hugely fun!
I think it is key for anyone who wants to learn a language to have goals, and I take time to ensure that I understand each learner's goals to plan my lessons accordingly. Therefore, each lesson is tailored around each individual learner's reasons, desires and needs for learning French and/or Spanish.
At whichever level and age I am teaching, I aim to make each lesson as diverse and fun as possible and provide learners all the help and support they need. As a teacher, I pride myself on having a cheery and enthusiastic personality with an unwavering can-do attitude towards helping learners achieve their goals.
I am happy to travel to any student's home address or to a mutually agreed location within a 5 mile radius of Basingstoke where I live, or to give the lesson online.
I am a passionate freelance linguist who provides tuition in French and Spanish in my free time to people of all ages and at all levels, from beginner to advanced.
I offer lessons to students who want as much help and support as possible to achieve the grades they want for school or college, to learners who are starting from scratch and for those wishing to practise their French and/or Spanish for work, travel or leisure purposes. My goal through tutoring is to pass on my knowledge and passion for languages to new people
Teaching people French and Spanish is a very rewarding and enjoyable opportunity for me to pass on my knowledge and passion for languages to new people. These are two languages which are not only beautiful but also extremely important on a world scale, and the rewards for learning either are limitless. I strive to help people do just that!
Learning languages has opened many doors for me in life, boosting my confidence, knowledge and personal/professional development more than I could ever have imagined. From my studies (including a wonderful year abroad studying in Spain) to my freelance translation work to travelling around the world seeing new places and meeting new people, learning French and Spanish has been one of my most rewarding and enriching experiences and achievements in life.

Freelance Linguist- Translation and Tutoring (French and Spanish)
I first met Dan back in 2008 as one of my fellow Erasmus students and I was immediately blown away by his language skills: he can speak French and Spanish fluently (and English, obviously:)) and has a knack for picking up languages very quickly (even Dutch, my mother tongue, which is not easy at all to learn). I can definitely recommend him as a teacher!
Daniel is a great teacher and a true polyglot who will help you develop your language skills like no other. His sense of humour and kindness are matched by his professionality, which makes every lesson a true pleasure. Highly recommended!
As a native French speaker, I can highly recommend Daniel as a good French tutor. He can talk and write French fluently.
Daniel is very knowledgeable, patient and thorough. He has a great understanding of numerous languages and cultures having travelled to numerous parts of the world which makes it fun to learn and study with him. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor.
I met Daniel when he was on an Erasmus program for a 1-year period while I was on a 3-month training course there. What truly surprised me was that he could speak French quite well! That's very surprising coming from a 18-20 English man, trust me.
All along my time there I got along with him, we exchanged in French Spanish and English. A very funny pleasant man with obvious great languages skills.
I truly recommend him to anyone wishing to learn Spanish or even French.
