Mrs Jenna E

Qualified and experienced Secondary-level teacher of French and Spanish specialising in preparation for GCSE, but also delivering tuition at KS3. Experience of providing tuition for AQA, Edexcel and iGCSE. I have been providing high-quality tuition to a range of students, both in the UK and abroad for the past three years. My aim is to build my students' confidence in all 4 skill areas and I will always tailor lessons according to the individual needs of my students. Online teaching can be done via Zoom using a shared whiteboard with which the student can interact. I can also provide homework and feedback on written work on request. I like to have a good line of communication with parents and students and provide updates on student progress when needed. I don't see the online platform as a barrier to building rapport and have built up good relationships with the range of students I teach. I'm currently tutoring 6 GCSE students across a range of exam boards.
