Phyllis - Marden and Yalding - School English

Methodology

I tutor German and French for GCSE and A level, and Spanish for GCSE, and I have a thorough knowledge of the requirements of the different boards. I also teach adults at all levels, for business and holidays.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French German and Spanish and EFL.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a degree in French and German and a masters degree in German. I am a member of the Institute of Linguists. I am also a qualified teacher of English as a Foreign Language.

- How much do you charge?

I generally charge £30 per hour and £35 for A level and would add some travel expenses if required to travel any distance. The hourly fee would be higher for business language tuition.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home and in Maidstone, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and the Medway towns, West Malling, Wateringbury, Harrietsham, Lenham, Ashford

- When are you available?

As my schedule is frequently changing, I could say that in theory I am available any time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from 11 years to adult.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, and A level

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you have struggled to learn a language in the past, do not despair, with the right teaching and some investment in terms of time, most people can master at least the basics of a foreign language. There are many user-friendly course books available now, and we can surely find one that suits your needs. Learning a language requires progressive steps, and if some have been missed for any reason, the result can be confusion. This particularly applies to children. With patience and application we can bring you up to the required standard.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught languages for many years in the local community and in local businesses, and have prepared students for various different examinations. I am also an examiner for the LCCI English and foreign language examinations. I have also extensive experience of teaching in schools.

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

Yes.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

member of the Institute of Linguists.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

some adults learning for holiday and business purposes. Banque PSA Finance 2 days per week preparing for business examinations. Many GCSE and A level students. German business courses in local companies.
I have recently coached pupils who have obtained A* in French and German

I just thought I'd let you know that Sahil achieved a grade A in French which he was not expecting at all! He is going to his first choice, Nottingham. Many thanks to you for helping him to achieve this brilliant result!

Betsy

Hi Phyllis, it's Betsy. You will not believe it but I got an A in German! Thank you so much for all your help. Everyone's in a state of shock. I'm not sure how you did it, because a few months ago I was getting straight 'E' s in German!

C
Candy

I know that Will has been in touch to thank you so much for all your help in getting the elusive 'A' in German. He is so delighted, as he has been accepted at his first choice university, Bath, to do German and International Management.
Thanks so much, Phyllis, I honestly don't think he could have done it without you!
