Ms Carole P

I am a qualified modern language teacher of French, German, and Spanish, with French being my native language. I lived in Germany for 4 years. I tutor children and adults alike and I have been tutoring online since 2010. I am patient, passionate about my subject, and I am committed to focusing on the needs of each individual student. I have tutored students for GCSE German, Spanish and French and I have had good results doing so. I enjoy cooking, listening to music, playing the violin in an orchestra, travelling, hiking, swimming and learning new things. One of my students' testimonials: Our daughter switched schools and had missed all of year 7 Spanish so we contacted Carole to catch her up with the missed content. She has enjoyed her lessons over zoom and found Carole taught with clarity and patience. This has given her a much greater confidence in Spanish lessons. Carole is professional, focussed and introduced excellent learning tools, we would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs tutoring."

Mr Steven B

Hello prospective student! I have over ten years of experience teaching languages in the northwest of England. I have taught in secondary schools (such as Manchester High School for Girls) and a number of sixth form colleges (Priestley College, Marple Sixth Form College). I teach German, Latin and Classical Greek. I am also able to teach English Language for those students wishing to brush up on grammar, vocabulary, written style and speaking skills. My experience is mainly in the secondary sector, though I am happy to teach older primary students (yr 5/6). I can teach the above languages to complete beginners through to those preparing for exams. The first thing I do is discuss with you the needs of your child and then tailor a specific programme. Feel very free to get in touch for further information or to have a chat about a possible programme of language tuition.
