Sophie - Beckenham - Italian

Methodology

I'm passionate about teaching and languages. I have learnt many myself at school (Italian, Spanish, German, Latin and English), so I know what it's like to be the learner. I'm patient, friendly and approachable & think that no question is stupid.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French, Beginner Spanish and Latin & modern Greek.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

English Degree, MA in Bilingual Translation (Westminster University).
Teacher's qualification, I did my teacher training with CILT in 2000-01.
A levels in English, French, Spanish, German, philosophy, maths, history (French baccalaureate)

- How much do you charge?

Free consultation by phone or email beforehand.
£45/hour for 1 to 1 tuition, 10 hours for £430 and 20 hours for £800.
£55/hour for 2 to 1 or 10 prepaid hours for £530.
£60/hour for 3 to 1
Travel included. Please send me an email if you need the corporate prices (this is if your company is paying for the lessons).

- Where do you teach?

I teach in the student's home or office. and can travel up to 10 miles radius. Beckenham, Bromley, Croydon, Kent, Shirley, Chislehurst, East Dulwich, Sydenham, Forest Hill, City, London, Bank, Liverpool Street, Aldgate, Barbican, St Paul's, Holborn, Wanstead, Chiswick, Leytonstone, South Woodford, Wimbledon, Clapham, Richmond, Putney, South Kensington, Chelsea, Holland Park, Hampstead, London Bridge, Ealing, Green Park, Islington.

From 4 years old
Beginners to very advanced.
False beginners

People who lack confidence, who don't like grammar or who find it very difficult to speak another language despite understanding texts/articles really well.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, iGCSE, A level, Degree/Master level French, DELF, professional exams like IOL qualifications or MA in translation. I also help prepare interviews and primary school teachers who need a boost for their French/Spanish teaching.

I help with oral exam preparation. I have taught and 'cured' many students who had 'blocks' with speaking.

I help with translation and interpreting exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I only do online tutoring with very reliable people and prefer doing this with intermediate or advanced students if possible. Payment has to be made and received before the lesson.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Everything is possible. I think that not everyone learns the same way, so I try to adapt to the students. I will ask you what your aim is and will do my best for you to achieve it. You need to be ready to put some work in. I will teach you the essentials and will provide tips and advice on many aspects of French and how to access French, Spanish or Greek culture, if it is something you're interested in.

Sophie is enthusiastic about languages and interacting with people from all backgrounds - her network truly spans the globe! She is competent in language instruction and translation, but it is her openness and genuineness that really sets her apart. It is a pleasure working with her.

As promised, a quick note to say how impressed we were with the help you gave our son in preparing for his French oral GCSE. You were able to come to give a lesson at very short notice (just a couple of days) and were always very punctual for lessons. Our son found you gave him a lot of confidence in preparing for his oral and your advice was very clear. I would thoroughly recommend your lessons".

Martin

I have been working with Sophie on my French language skills for 4 years with excellent results. Sophie has a strong focus on the person's individual skills and style; she is working with great enthusiasm and motivation.

Without a doubt, Sophie's language teaching skills are on a very high level and I can certainly recommend working with her.

We employed Sophie to help our son to gain confidence with his oral French for his IGCSEs. He really enjoyed the lessons and she helped him enormously, not only with his speaking but in the written work as well. He achieved an A* grade which we were all delighted with."

I know he would not have achieved his A* without your help - so thank you once again.

Dear Sophie, I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that Ali got an A* in all his GCSEs. Thank you very much for your help with his French. I'll pass on your details to any other parent who is looking for a French tutor.'

Sophie provided me with one-to-one French language tuition to help me improve my communication and performance at board meeting in Paris. Throughout the sessions, Sophie was engaging, professional and just importantly she was good fun to work with. I subsequently engaged Sophie to provide the same service for one of my team with equally impressive results. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
