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.
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.
I have experience of helping people with languages of a variety of ages and standards for both oral and written examinations. Previous students of mine have been very pleased with their results and guidance received which is always tailored to your specific needs. I have done work experience in France and Austria to help gain a feel for the languages and hone fluency in oration as well as travelling extensively through Europe. I can offer more in depth instruction in German and Russian literature or at a more basic introductory level as well as language as they are my degree languages. I am very diligent and reliable.
I have been teaching languages for more than 15 years long and always improving and getting new ways and methods to teach.
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.
I built an intense and solid academic foundation of economic sciences and statistics thanks to a rich curriculum based on fundamental courses in economics, completed by a variety of applied and quantitative courses. Within this context, I have been hired as an econometrics tutor in Cairo university
Teaching for me is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me. so i am ready to assist you learning and understanding econometric analysis using Linear (Multiple regression) and non linear regression models (Poisson, Zero inflated, logit, probit, ordered logit, ordered probit, Generalized ordered logit and probit and multinomial logit while using STATA and R recently. this is applied to Cross-section, panel data and Time series analysis (cointegration, VEC, VAR, VECM models) on E-views.
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.
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.
⦁ 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.
Through my tutoring experience, I have learned to be a personable teacher and mentor. I have taught English for two months in Rio de Janeiro at a charity school called Solar Meninos de Luz. In London, I have several years worth of experience teaching French, Spanish, Portuguese and English (all as foreign languages). I have prepared students for exams at OCR and Edexcel GCSE, as well as AQA A-Level and Cambridge Pre-U. I aim to make learning fun and interactive, and so I use technology such as graphic tablets as well as word games provided by Memrise.
My Modern Languages course at Oxford University has prepared me for tutoring. Having benefited from weekly face-to-face discussions with tutors, I appreciate the value of personalised tutoring and committing to ambitious exam and university entrance objectives.
