Tim - Carshalton - Tutoring French and guitar (all levels and to all ages). Spanish from beginners to GCSE. Experienced, friendly, patient and encouraging. Happy to travel within a 10 mile radius

Methodology

My objective is always to carefully assess each student's level of ability and attainment before formulating lesson plans that will best help them reach their targets. Making lessons both enjoyable and rewarding is always a priority.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

French, Spanish and Guitar

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA Hons degree in French.

- How much do you charge?

£27 per hour

- Where do you teach?

I'm happy to travel to students' homes roughly within a six to eight mile radius. This would include the following towns in Surrey: Croydon, Shirley, Sutton, Cheam, Carshalton, Carshalton Beeches, Banstead, Wallington, Purley, Coulsdon, Kenley and Sanderstead among others.

- When are you available?

Available during the day and evening, Monday to Saturday.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

For French, all ages and levels. For Spanish, all ages and levels up to and including GCSE. For guitar, all ages and levels.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Up to university level for French. GCSE for Spanish.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The tutoring style I've developed over many years is designed to suit the needs and requirements of each individual student according to their age, already-acquired level of attainment and reason for learning so that he or she is able to realise his or her full potential in an effective and enjoyable way.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

My experience is exclusively as a private tutor, mostly travelling to students' homes. I have also hosted lessons at my own home. To this point I've tutored students ranging in age from 4 years old through to teenagers and those in their twenties preparing for GCSE, A' Level or university exams as well as students of more senior years wishing to learn a language for the first time (perhaps due to having bought holiday property abroad) or who simply wish to reacquaint themselves with a language they last encountered when at school.

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

I don't since I've worked exclusively as a private tutor. I can provide references and testimonials upon request.

Perfect! Very happy with Tim so far.

Tim has shown patience, humour and linguistic skill in equal measure for the past 5 months. He has taken my rusty, 40 year old unused school French and has enabled me to speak with confidence at business meetings in Paris and with my French in laws. You can teach an old dog new tricks! I find it easy to recommend him to you.

M
Maggie

Tim has been teaching my daughter guitar for 2 years. I would highly recommend him. My daughter now plays really well and it's all down to Tim's patience and excellent teaching. He also helped my son prepare for his GCSE French last summer. I would highly recommend Tim as a French tutor.

R
Roger

In seeking the right tutor I was, above all, keen to have the opportunity to improve my command of the spoken word together with the supporting grammar. In Tim, I found the perfect combination of a patient and knowledgeable guide, from whom I have learned so much. My confidence in being able to converse 'off the cuff' has increased greatly over the intervening 18 months.

H
Habib

I would wholeheartedly recommend Tim as a guitar tutor. I have been delighted with his approach. He is always very patient and if I'm struggling with any aspect of playing a song he is brilliant at modifying it so I can play it. I've had several guitar tutors over the years but Tim is by far the best. I'm really pleased with the progress I've made and hope to carry on with lessons for many years to come. Thank you Tim!

Tim clearly has a wealth of experience acquired over a good many years. I learnt French at school and decided to return to it. It has been a joy! Tim has a very pleasant, relaxed manner. As a jazz vocalist I needed help with the translation of French lyrics into English which Tim was happy and able to do. As an added bonus I discovered Tim is an accomplished guitarist. Being always reliable and punctual are other strong points. With Tim's teaching and encouragement I hope one day to be fluent in French.

J
Joan

My son thoroughly enjoyed his lessons with Tim and thought he was quite cool – also gets results - gained an A in his AS level this year! Always on time and never missed a lesson, easy going personality which helps with young people and makes working hard fun – quite a gift.

(Parent and also a Head Teacher of a Croydon Primary School)

My daughter felt that Tim was a perfect mixture of patience, calm and kindness. He corrects in an encouraging and positive way that serves to motivate and promote confidence. I liked the fact that Tim had carefully prepared and structured work and he was clearly able to adapt his teaching to suit his pupil's needs. I have no hesitation in recommending Tim to anyone, young or old, who wishes to learn French.

Tim is everything you'd expect from an experienced tutor. Reliable, understanding and encouraging, he was first class with my son, taking him from nowhere to an excited and confident GCSE pupil. I could not recommend him highly enough!
