I am a qualified languages teacher, with experience teaching students from Key Stage Three all the way through to A Levels, university preparation and adults looking to improve their conversational language.
Whilst studying French and German at university I spent a year abroad working in Berlin where I was able to improve my German language skills greatly. With regards to my French language, I use this every day as I am married to a French national and so half of my family are now from Lyon!
I have taught in a number of environments which have demonstrated to me the need for flexibility when teaching languages; using different resources for different students and adapting my teaching to suit the student. I like to use modern resources such as Spotify, Netflix and news stories in order to make the language more applicable in everyday life.
My son has completely changed his outlook to English after lessons with Chris. We started to have a regular session each week on Zoom during lockdown. It says it all that my son is adamant about carrying on with the weekly session, even though he's back at school. It's amazing to see the difference in his work. Chris has made a real effort to create lessons that connect and engage and his effort and commitment has really paid off for my son. I cannot recommend Chris highly enough.
