I am a qualified paralegal, however I also teach French. French is also my second language, therefore as well as teaching the language I can give students an insight into the culture to encourage them to find the language enjoyable.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a French A level grade B and as well as an A* in Gcse French, I went on to study French at University where I attained a Ba Honours in French and Politics. I then changed careers and read Law through post graduate degree and now work as a trainee solicitor. However, I do enjoy teaching and this reflects in the subject area I chose to write my degree dissertation in, which was "Young people and their Development". I have therefore decided to carry on tutoring the French language, this also enables me to share my knowledge of the French culture and language, whilst utilising my teaching skills and keeping to speed with current changes in French curriculum.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £10-£15 per hour. I do not charge for the initial consultation lesson as I feel it very important that parents and students are happy and comfortable with me. This initial lesson is more a meeting where I have a chance to discuss the students' needs and see where they are in terms of grades and teacher feedback. I feel it very important to understand the student and what teaching method suits them best.
- Where do you teach?
I teach at students' homes and I will travel to all areas free of charge. I am willing to travel to the areas mentioned on my profile free of charge after meeting parents and the student and we agree that I will am the most suitable tutor.
- When are you available?
I am available evening Monday to Friday and weekends.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach up to GCSE, but mainly primary school levels, ie. Key stage 1 and 2.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a very professional and fun tutor in French and recent research has shown that children who have a knowledge of more than one language generally perform better at school in many subjects, not just languages. Multilingual children have been shown to be more creative, have better problem-solving abilities, have more self-esteem and are more aware of other cultures than children who only have a knowledge of one language. When your child leaves school or university, being able to speak more than one language will be a great advantage when starting their career. As globalisation continues to grow rapidly, having multilingual staff will become a must for most employers.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I teach students locally in primary school French, mainly Key Stage 1 and 2. I enjoy teaching French and encouraging the children to be motivated in modern languages.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I have trained at the University of Bedfordshire and the University of Kingston.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Yes the Institute for Legal Executives, The Children's Society Schools for Life, TES Connect.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
At the moment I have a nine year old student, who I thoroughly enjoy teaching. I enjoy setting tasks and doing interactive learning with her, we go onto online teaching forums where she does the lessons and I also print out learning aids so she can keep in her folder and refer to when at school.
