Mr Joe S

I am an experienced Spanish teacher and Head of Department whose work is lauded within the MFL teaching community. I am well known for my warm and positive relationships I build with students and parents. I have a sound knowledge of cognitive science which means my methods and resources help students acquire vocabulary and grammar quicker. My lessons include lots of modelling, structured and guided practice and opportunities for guided and spontaneous talk. The vocabulary and grammar that I teach my students is ambitious and goes beyond the limits of the textbook. With me, your child will see big changes in their long term memory and will be producing language that goes way beyond their age expectations in school. I can also provide online resources and subscriptions to help boost your child's learning between sessions at no extra cost.

Ms Heather H

I have over ten years' teaching experience at both secondary schools and colleges, specialising in English and English Literature. I have also worked as a tutor for small groups of students in addition to tutoring private students, usually to help towards GCSE exams, but also to boost learning within Key Stage 3 and 2. I am happy to teach either online or one-to-one. My teaching style is based around encouragement and coaching. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn, although not always at the same pace, which is why tutoring is so good for those lacking in confidence in the classroom. I like to build a rapport with my students, to engage with them and thus help them to gain confidence and achieve their true potential. I also have experience of teaching adults with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and social difficulties and have helped them attain Functional Skills qualifications and GCSE English.
