    GCSE/A-Level/ Any reason French and German and English Tuition

    I am a fully qualified teacher with twenty-three years' experience of KS3, GCSE and A-Level with many different exam boards, both UK and international. I am a former Head of Department and have taught in three prestigious independent schools in the UK. My style is highly effective and will not only rapidly improve your confidence to speak, listen, read and write but will give you a solid foundation of grammar on which to build, rather than just teaching you banks of vocabulary to memorise. My lessons are fun, engaging and interactive and I make all my own resources, which I tailor to suit the needs and interests of my individual students. Whatever your reason for learning French or German, exam help, test revision, ravel or just for the fun of it, I can tailor something for you. I recently realised, when my school moved to full-time online teaching via MS Teams, that students can get just as much out of online tuition as they can in a classroom, if not more! As a native speaker of English who learned languages in a classroom, I know first-hand the challenges you are facing but it needn't be difficult! Whether you are in need of a single lesson or an entire course, I am sure we can work something out. I can also offer tuition in English (from any age to GCSE) and Common Entrance Exam Preparation. Happy to teach online or in person and can host, too. I look forward to hearing from you. Duncan

    French private lessons: Language and communication [ONLINE]
    I am a French teacher, an academician. I have been teaching French, language and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. I explain my classes in French, in Arabic or in Spanish, according to your choice. During the session I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can speak fluently over time and avoid grammatical gaps. And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our accompaniment and increase your level.

    Yolanda
    ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
    My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours to start with.

    Online course for German as a foreign language with all material included
    In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.
