I am was born to be a teacher and I love teaching, so contact me if you want genuine results.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach French up to A-level. I also teach Spanish beginners, that is up to GCSE level. Beside that, I hold a Degree in English and American literature and Civilisation which allows me to teach English as a foreign language.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a Master in English and American literature and Civilisation from the university Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris (France) in 1999. I have a PGCE secondary (Modern Foreign Languages 11-18). I also hold a Certificate of Level 3 in Spanish delivered by the University of Southampton.
- How much do you charge?
I mostly charge a flat rate of £20 forEFL and Early years music and £25 for the others. Bear in mind that translation and interpreting is more likely to cost more. I am NOT willing to travel more than 5 miles from SO15 2. I also have a package of 10 lessons with £30 discount off the total price.
Please contact me for more details. Also, I have been asked about some group lessons. I do accept to teach groups, however, I am UNABLE to accomodate any lesson. So unless, you have a place for me to deliver, I won't be able to satisfy your needs. I usually limit myself to groups pf 4 people (for £50/hr), provided everyone has the same level.

I am now now teaching French and Spanish at Saint Annes Catholic School, in Southampton.
