I like to make learning a language an enjoyable experience, whether that be French or English. I have been teaching languages and music for the last 9 years to people of all ages and levels, in countries including; Wales, London, Italy, France, Belgium, Morocco and Costa Rica. I believe it should be fun, fulfilling and mainly conversational, alongside the study of grammar, writing and reading. I have the ability to adjust my teaching method in order to suit the learner, as I believe everybody comes at languages from a different angle; some from an aural perspective and others from a more grammatical understanding. It is important for me to understand the learners' approach so I can help them fully immerse in the subject. I believe that languages are a vital skill in this global world today and would love to help you improve and work towards fluency in either French or English. I am happy to teach the basics as-well as the following examinations; IBDP, GCSE, A-level and University Degrees in both languages.
Music tutoring; I tutor Music GCSE and A.S/A-Level, piano grades 1-7, voice (jazz/pop), composition and music theory levels 1-8.
I believe ultimately the study of music should be fun and fulfilling and that the fundamental basics of music (e.g. scales/understanding of harmony & theory/listening skills/analytical skills) are required in order to progress with excellence. Musical examinations are not essential in order to be a great musician, but they do help one improve technique, precision and theory. GCSE and A-level music may well be necessary in order to study music at university level, particularly at music conservatoires. I consider music to be mainly about training the ear and playing with meaning and expression.
My specialism is Fine art, and have an extensive knowledge of photography and history of art.
I have a PGCE in Art and Design and a bachelors of Arts degree in Fine art.
I have I am a reflective, conscientious and encouraging tutor, I have structured teaching methods to suit student`s own pace and learning needs. I am able to teach fun step by step projects that explore a wide variety of materials and techniques.

I graduated from Cambridge last year, and wrote more than 50 essays over my time, and read even more books! I have learnt the hard way how to write a good essay, and how to read efficiently.
I miss studying and learning new things, but tutoring helps me to keep this up!
Because I have graduated I have more time for you!
I have taught a variety of adults and children from a wide range of backgrounds. I am currently running creative writing workshops for homeless, migrant, and LGBT+ groups in Cambridge, which has given me a huge variety of communication skills, with people both older and younger than myself. After teaching English in South Korea for a month last summer, there is no teaching challenge too big. I have learnt how to be clear and precise from working with people with English as a second language. I have taught sailing for 10 years at my sailing club. This requires teaching young people and adults complex pieces of theory, and most importantly, making these interesting to learn.
I have mentored and tutored on other websites and in undergraduate classes.
I have helped students submit prose composition pieces for school awards via webcam. I marked the student's submitted piece and we went over this together. I feel that reflecting over one's own work is the best way to improve. It required clear and thoughtful analysis to explain linguistic features to my student. I also like to make learning the language tie in with a familiarization with the cultural and literary context of the ancient world. This allows students to develop an insight into the society of the Greeks and Romans.
I have also taught linguistic features, such as the Greek aorist tense, to fellow students in student-led classroom sessions. This helped me to understand the subject matter on a deeper level, so that I have come to value teaching. I would ask my students to explain to me their understanding of certain things so that the lesson would be more of a conversations and discourse than a strict lecture.
In my years at Cambridge I have come to understand what it is that my DoS (Director of Studies) and supervisors expect of students. I shall aim to direct the lessons with a view to how supervisions are conducted. The interview process wants to see whether students are apt for such a teaching format. As well as interview help I can also give insight on how to make a strong applicati...
I was a tutor in English literature and language GCSE and A-Level for two years after I graduated with my BA from Cambridge. I've also taught English as a foreign language to children in Paris. The best part about tutoring was seeing students improve and getting to congratulate them on their exam results! I'm really keen to share my enthusiasm for Shakespeare and early modern drama, and to have an excuse to read more eclectically again.
I've both tutored and taught writing for 7 years, both for English native speakers and ESL speakers. I tutored writing both in college and in my first graduate degree--which is a Master's in English Literature. I taught English in Japan and at a university in the US before becoming a professional writer.
I am a tutor of 5 years experience with an excellent academic record. I took 5 AS level examinations and 4 A-levels (receiving A* in English and Drama and Theatre Studies, As in Classical Civilisation and History). I received 8A*s and 2As at GCSE level. I also have personal experience of school entrance exams at 11+ and 6th form level.
I am a good communicator. With my background in the performing arts and recent experience in educational theatre, I am good at engaging students in their subject and the task at hand. I like to encourage students, while pushing them to achieve what they are capable of.
My own research interests are in mid-century American literature, specifically in the 50s and 60s counterculture (as manifested in the work of Allen Ginsberg and Norman Mailer); and the interactions of English and French comic literature, particularly in the work of Geoffrey Chaucer and Lawrence Sterne.
I have been teaching/tutoring (although not originally in an academic capacity) since the age of 14, where I started working as a dance teacher at my dance school, teaching everyone from the under 8's to the 60+. During the past 7 years, I have mastered the art of how to tailor my tutoring style to the needs of the person.
I also have experience tutoring in an informal capacity at GCSE through to University level. I helped tutor by brother through his GCSE's and continue to help him in his final year at college (A Level). I have also assumed the role of resident dissertation/thesis/extended essay proof-reader and English grammar 'coach' for many of my friends during their university careers.
Finally, I have lead many UCAS and university admissions talks and workshops, specialising in the TSA admissions test (and the linguistic aptitude section of the MLAT), and personal statement writing.
