I believe any kind of study should be driven by the pupil's interests and needs and guided by the teacher, so I am very flexible in running lessons. I can provide extra support for your current schoolwork, devise a personal programme to work on weaker areas or help you practice your spoken French (or a combination of the three!)
I believe that a good understanding of grammar is key to being able to use a language - as opposed to learning and repeating stock phrases - so I'm always keen to work on this if it could be of use to you. I try to break grammar points down to the basics and explain them in a straightforward way to demystify them; grammar can sometimes seem intimidating at first glance but approached the right way anyone can get their head around it!
Hello! I'm Matt and I'm a part-time Masters student at the University of Bristol. My love for foreign languages began when I first started learning French in secondary school.
Since then I've achieved a 2.i degree in French and German at the University of Cambridge, spent a year living and working in Paris and another working as a Language Assistant at The Skinners' School, a top grammar school in Kent.
At Skinners' I taught GCSE and A-Level pupils French and German and I can easily adapt my teaching towards these exams, having achieved A*s in A-Level and GCSE French and German myself. (Remembering of course that there is much more to learning a language than passing tests..!)
I have kept up with changes to the format and grading of GCSEs and A-Levels through my past couple of years' tutoring.
I also offer mock interviews for applications to languages degrees at Oxford and Cambridge.
A first trial lesson is free with no obligation to continue so don't hesitate to get in touch!
My rates are £20/hour for GCSE and £25/hour for A-Level.
Matt tutored my daughter for her French GCSE. Not only did she get a "8" but she also went from not enjoying French to loving it. Matt was always very professional, well-prepared and had a lovely way of working with my daughter.
