⦁ At the City of London School for Boys, I have successfully taught pupils for IGCSE French and A level French who have gone on to both Oxford and Cambridge.
⦁ I know of the academic excellence and high expectations of selective UK independent schools
⦁ I have extensive experience tutoring students from the most prestigious schools in and around London, among them:
- City of London School for Boys, where I have taught French IGCSE and French A-level
- Latymer Upper School
- St Marylebone School
- Eltham College
- Radley College
- Wisbech Grammar School
- Mill Hill School
- Roedan School
- King Edward VI School for Girls
and many more.
⦁ Due to my long tutoring experience, I know of the high expectations put on students. This is why I take pride in delivering top level tuition in every lesson.
⦁ I have learned that tailoring learning strategies to every student's skills - language skills, and/or analytical skills for A level - significantly increase the pupil’s confidence and improve the chances to achieve his or her goals. This is how I can make a difference to the students' lives.
SAMY's last completed French job with Thais: 1-2 hrs/week - I need help writing and formulating my French dissertation on Les Statues Meurent Aussi and Le Musee Imaginaire, the dissertation is due on the 24th of March and it is in French. The main thing I need help with is the French as I have a tendency to contradict myself in my writing.
SAMY's last review in French from Zaynah Shariff: IGCSE it was good
I have a five years French degree in teaching languages and a three years degree in Spanish Language and Literature . I lived for 5 years in Spain. I also did my PGCE in 2002 and after completing the teaching period, decided it wasn't for me. I really like the privileged relationship the one-to-one tuition brings. I help the school students (GCSE, A Level, Baccalaureate etc.) to close the gap or excel in class, the adult to explore the language with all its diversity (structure and communication) and I also teach children with songs, enjoyable activities, it is also possible online.
Marie's last completed French job with Aubrey: 1-2 hrs/week - My bosses daughter is in year 11 St Georges International school Montreux
Marie's last review in French from wenjing amber: first lesson my daughter enjoyed the lesson and commented highly ...Thank you Marie!
I have been tutoring in French and German since I was in sixth form and spent six months in Vienna as a teaching assistant in 2014/15. I have taught a range of students between the ages of 11 and 18, both individually and in groups of up to 30. Therefore, I am well versed in planning and adapting lessons to focus on a student's strengths, weaknesses, requirements and interests.
Working as a translator in Paris has given me a breadth of French vocabulary that spans beyond the classroom and literature course. My students will thus get the chance to stand out from the crowd and impress with their diverse knowledge of colloquial and technical idiom.
Both of the languages I studied were learnt from scratch at secondary school, and the methods I devised and skills I trained throughout my schooling and time at Oxford are relevant and applicable to anyone wishing to improve their fluency and command of French and German. I am currently teaching myself Spanish, Danish and Swedish using the same techniques to build up my proficiency quickly as well as sustainably.
Daniel's last completed French job with Grace: 1-2 hrs/week - To improve general french skills
Daniel's last review in French from maihan: french Thank You!!
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.
Jasmine's last completed French job with Claire: 1-2 hrs/week - Hello, I am looking for a French tutor for my Year 10 (15 year old) daughter, doing GCSE French. She needs one hour a week please, on a weekday morning. She needs general help with all aspects of GCSE French. It's not her favourite subject, so she needs someone to make it as clear as possible to understand, and fun, if possible, so that she can feel more confident with the language. We are North London based. Obviously it's online at the moment but face to face would be good in the future. Many thanks.
Having been tutored myself in the past, I understand what being in a pupil's shoes is like. From there I then started tutoring after having developed a passion in education and learning. I have since tutored children as young as five to adults from a wide range of ages. This means that not only have I learnt how to adapt my teaching from individual to individual but also to adapt my level of tutoring based on age and/or past experience in the subjects that I tutor.
The last student I tutored on Spires achieved an A at A level French.
Elodie's last completed French job with Gian Marco: Occasional - I am looking for a tutor to go over and check my dissertation in French. It’s 6000 words. I have already spoken to Elodie. However, I think I accidentally deleted my request.
Elodie's last review in French from Gian Marco: Dissertation proof reading Would highly recommend! Thank you!
I've been teaching with Spires for over a year, and I've had several long- and short-term clients over this period. All my students have made highly encouraging progress and have given me very positive feedback.
Off Spires, I have a wide range of teaching experience, both paid and volunteering, in a variety of languages and to both adults and children. I am a CELTA-certified teacher of English to students of other languages, and have outstanding academic credentials (A* at A-level in English Literature and Distinction in both French and Italian in my Preliminary Examinations at Oxford).
I teach English, French and Italian literature and language, to both native English speakers and foreign learners. I encourage my students to be scrupulously accurate when it comes to the finer points of language and creative and imaginative when it comes to studying literature. I am happy to conduct lessons in English, French or Italian.
I have a detailed knowledge of the UCAS system, and of Oxford and Cambridge application procedures in particular. I'm happy to offer help with personal statements, interview practice and preparation for the MLAT or Cambridge MML admissions test and advice about written work to be submitted.

Dorcas's last completed French job with Andrea: 1-2 hrs/week -
Dorcas's last review in French from Claire: Thank you Dorcas. That seemed to go really well. Will be in touch. Thanks again, Claire
i have had lots of experience in tutoring which enables me to tailor my tutoring style to different levels and types. In secondary school I ran a Spanish club for lower school students. In sixth form I tutored primary school students in both french and Spanish which required a great deal of patience and enthusiasm. In sixth form I also tutored pupils in year 11 and 12 for GCSEs and AS levels which required a whole different set of skills to tutoring younger students! Such a variety of teaching experience means I am apt at dealing with language tutoring of all levels, as well as being able to be patient, understanding and helpful.

ABBIE's last review in French from Alexa: My daughter loves Abbie!
I am an English Literature graduate from Oxford University. I am passionate about educating young people and ensuring they reach their highest potential. To date I have worked as a private tutor, mentor, workshop facilitator and coach. As a private tutor I have taught English at GCSE and A-Level and have prepared Ox-bridge candidates, most of whom have been offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge. I have worked with Eton and Mactrac Digital Education to deliver the Eton X language programme, specialising in leadership and management skills for young students. In this role I have also interviewed and prepared prospective tutors, ensuring that tutors deliver the best in digital education. I continue to find new ways to encourage students to perform as their most confident selves when faced with an academic challenge or when trying to reach a specified goal, such as entry into a desired college or university. I have a body of experience as a workshop facilitator, including using creative writing and drama to help unlock student’s potential. I do this work on a voluntary basis and have used it to help foster confidence and initiative in young people and adults. My focus is goal orientated whilst maintaining a commitment to a highly individualised approach. This is powerful because the student is met on both an educational and personal level, providing an individual , allowing and em...

Ella 's last review in French from Anne: Fantastic first session! Thank you.
Over the last few years I have had experience teaching in schools, summer camps, online and in person, as well as teaching both one on one and in large groups. I have worked with charities, schools and private organisations so have tutored for a mixture of different purposes including supporting applications to Oxbridge, developing confidence in a subject and improving grades. I have tutored well over 60 pupils and take pride in making my lessons as engaging and productive as possible. My students have gone on to study at Cambridge and other top London universities.
