« Liam is an enthusiastic and hardworking young man with great passion for languages and teaching. His warm and friendly nature means his enthusiasm shines through, infecting everyone around him (myself included) and this, when coupled with his amazing natural talent and unquestionable dedication allows to me say without hesitation that anyone would be lucky to have him as a teacher. Coming from a family member, you'd expect a reasonable amount of bias to be involved in a recommendation; BUT I can say hand on heart that Liam is one of the most intelligent and inspiring people I have ever met and he makes me proud every day. »

Languages tutor: giving German, Spanish, French and English lessons to all levels

Methodology

I aim to help a student improve their fluency, cultural knowledge and overall understanding of the language in a fun, exciting environment. I have lived abroad in Peru, Germany and France and speak the three languages fluently. I have experience teaching and tutoring privately and can teach any level from beginners to advanced, and prepare students for exams.

Experience

I have always lived teaching and learning on the go, whilst travelling and studying myself and enjoy sharing my passion for languages with others. I have helped pupils excel in their GCSEs and A Level exams and for professional or personal reasons. The most important thing is to share knowledge and enthusiasm!
