Highly experienced, working languages and theatre studies teacher/examiner. Teaching up to and including A level: English literature and language, French, German and Theatre Studies.

100% grades A*-C for GCE and grades 4-9 for GCSE, with 80% of tutees consistently reaching the upper bands. All levels catered for. DBS checked.

Tutoring experience

As I am qualified and experienced to teach four subjects: English literature and language, Drama/Theatre Studies, French and German, up to and including A level, I am in a position to offer students on alternate weeks tutoring in two or three subjects if required.

I have been teaching at secondary and university level for almost 25 years, my secondary school experience ranges from state schools to prestigious independent. I am an Edexcel GCE examiner, have been widely published in modern foreign language education, exile and theatre studies and hold upper threshold status. I have lived and worked in Switzerland and France; I completed part of my degree at Toulouse University and in Paris trained as a Berlitz EFL teacher. Although I am trained to teach at secondary level in the UK, in recent years I have had great success preparing students for 11 and 13 plus English exams, one such student won the English scholarship to attend Harrow public school.

Approach to tutoring

Friendly, professional and dedicated. I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities and prefer to nurture long working relationships with tutees and their parents over a year or more. The majority of my current tutees are siblings whose families I have known for a number of years.

Lessons are created to meet the exact requirements of the examining board the student is following and or their precise learning needs. Students with special needs and or English not as a first language, can also be catered for. Homework is given and is expected to be completed.

I teach weekday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Until COVID 19 is no longer a threat I am conducting all lessons virtually using a mix of technologies which students of any age adapt well to.

In the first instance parents should email me to arrange a time to discuss how I can help their child. Testimonials, qualifications, DBS and proof of upper threshold status are available on request.
