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.
Carine's last completed GCSE French job with wenjing amber: 1-2 hrs/week - The student is going to be in year 9 in September, in preparation for GCSE exams.
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.

SAMY's last completed GCSE French job with Ann-Marie: 1-2 hrs/week - I am seeking a French Tutor for my daughter who is currently in year 11.
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...

French job with Anne:
Intensive - My 13 year old son is preparing for a major entrance exam to the academically challenging "Gymnasium" secondary school here in Switzerland. My husband and I grew up in the UK and speak limited French. Our son has 10 days this summer when he would like to do an intensive session each day to use his spoken French and written French. This 10 days runs 13.07-24.07.
Ideally he'd like to work with a young person who shares his liking for sports and can be a bit of a breath of fresh air compared to standard school. Ideally a guy, but not critical. If sessions could be reasonably early in the morning he could combine his French mornings with a summer sports camp locally. Intense work and then time to get outside!
Then after the 18th August work with a French tutor would continue, with sessions once or twice a week, ideally after school at 16:00.
This could be the same tutor or a different tutor, so please get in touch for either or both these periods. Many thanks!
Ella 's last review in GCSE French from Anne: Fantastic first session! Thank you.
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.

I also study German, Spanish, Ancient Greek and Latin; the latter two especially help with a general understanding of language.
I am a French Language and Literature tutor, who has been working with pupils ages 8 to 23 for now 5 years, from Introductory French to A Levels and IB, to Essay Writing for University students. I am completely fluent in both French and English, which makes me a great tutor for English students studying French. Here is a brief review of my experience:

Juliette's last completed GCSE French job with Claire: 1-2 hrs/week - My 15 year old daughter Marni is studying GCSE French. She is in year 10, so her GCSE will be next year. I wanted to find a tutor for her before lockdown, but now it seems even more important. None of us speak French so we can't help her. Thank you.
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 completed GCSE French job with Ruth : 1-2 hrs/week - My son is in year 10 and sitting French GCSE In 2021. He has had no tuition in French since lockdown started in March. French was one of his favourite subjects and he was thinking of taking it at A level . He needs to get back on track with some regular tuition.
Currently, I am a French teacher for foreigners in France. I have been teaching French as a foreign language since 2014 (as an assistant until 2016, and as a teacher onwards) to students of all ages both in large and small groups as well as in 1-to-1 classes. I am a certified examiner for the examinations of DELF/DALF which are organized and recognized by French government. In German high schools and I have conducted classes for preparation to these examinations for those who requested.

Audrey's last review in GCSE French from Brigitte: super, I really enjoyed it
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 GCSE 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.
I have taught everything from music theory to English as far afield as New York and Madagascar, in classrooms, 1-to-1 and online. I have a Congratulatory First in Modern Languages from Oxford and have been tutoring a range of subjects for the last 9 years. I also have experience of living, working and studying in both France and Germany. Although my style of teaching is friendly and laid-back, I take immense pleasure from academic achievement and from inspiring others to achieve their academic goals.
