French tuition, German tuition, Spanish tuition
‘Phenomenal tutoring! I don’t think I could have been better prepared for my AS level French exams. Special thanks for the essay structure advice and all the extra help with those nasty cloze tests!' (Hannah Martin)
'Georgie's tutor was fantastic! He was passionate about Spanish and was 100% committed to helping her achieve a top grade in her AS. He was patient with her, giving her plenty of encouragement when she needed it, nurturing her confidence and reassuring her. She enjoyed Spanish more than any other subject at AS level.' (Mark Owen)
'My German has shot up since I began tutorials. We've worked really hard on grammar and writing, which I'm much better at, and I feel thoroughly prepared for my AS speaking exam.' (Max Elmore)
'I've had a great tutor helping me with my AS Spanish. She is crazy about her subject, always treats me like an adult and is full of fascinating facts about Spanish culture, which make our tutorials really interesting. She has an amazing knack for explanation too, making grammar far more straightforward to understand than at school.' (Amy James)
Our tutorials focus on the development of the four skills examined - reading, writing, listening and speaking – emphasising tailored presentation, targeted practice and personalised feedback, using a bank of proprietary materials (authentic and semi-authentic), questions and papers, as well as past and specimen papers, to enhance fluency and accuracy, develop vocabulary and grammatical control, build confidence and provide enjoyment and stimulation.
We provide an informal assessment for each tutee at the outset. This provides focus and clarity for the preparation process, allowing us to target accurately where each tutee needs particular support.
Working through the relevant AS Level specification, our tutorials are also interactive and fun, developing creatively our tutees’ language skills, time management skills, and their ability to respond effectively to the variety of question types found in French, German and Spanish AS Level examinations.
Our AS Level French, German and Spanish tutorials help to develop our tutees':
Spoken French, German or Spanish as a means of advanced communication (including role-play, presentation, debate and topic-based discussion);
Understanding of spoken French, German or Spanish in a variety of contexts and genres (including interviews, news reports, guided tours, lectures and informal dialogue);
Ability to write French, German or Spanish confidently and accurately, demonstrating fluency and structure, for a variety of purposes (e.g. to write essays, letters, summaries and translations);
Understanding of the different types of written French, German or Spanish (including newspaper articles, journals, letters, guides and reports);
Understanding and application of a range of vocabulary and grammatical structures in French, German or Spanish (including tenses, moods, voices, cases, parts of speech, synonyms and antonyms);
Awareness and understanding of the contemporary society, cultural background and heritage of countries and communities where French, German or Spanish is spoken (including Canada, Austria and Latin America, respectively).
We tutor in the comfort of your home, online (via Skype or FaceTime), or at the home of one of our specialist AS Level tutors, at a time that is most convenient for you.
We currently tutor within a 10 mile radius of Bournemouth town centre, including Christchurch, Parkstone, Poole, Southbourne, Westbourne, Boscombe, Moordown, Winton, Charminster, Ferndown, Wimborne, and Branksome.
Please note: our tutorials serve to consolidate, develop and supplement the curriculum followed by our tutees at their school or college.
