I am a native English speaker from Wales, U.K. I am a professional language (Welsh, French, English), music, drama and creative writing tutor and a professional songwriter/composer. I compose for artists and film/t.v. I love to tutor music, drama, creative writing and languages because I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge and am grateful to those tutors who have taught me all I know and what I use today in my professional work.
I have taught in France, Belgium, London, Wales, Morocco and Costa Rica and speak fluent English, French, Welsh and Spanish. My hobbies include dance, film, surfing, swimming, hiking, languages, travel, trapeze, yoga, tennis, cooking and writing.
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.
Music Theory 2-8
Media Studies - GCSE/A-level
