French Tutor in Tavistock

I have 26 years experience as a teacher. In that time I have worked in a wide variety of both large and small settings from grammar to comprehensive schools, both state and independent. I have tutored pupils in a one to one setting throughout my career as and when time allowed. Unfortunately it has become increasingly hard to make a difference in a typical state school environment which is why I have made the decision to focus my time on providing one to one tuition moving forward - whether thats helping an 11 plus candidate access the school they deserve or ensuring a GCSE English student attains the best grade they are capable of. I believe I have a good understanding of what a pupils true potential is. More importantly I have amassed a wide range of tools in my arsenal to enable them to achieve this potential. I entered the teaching profession because I wanted to make a difference. Nothing is more satisfying than taking someone who has been told they cant and showing them that actually they can.

Our experience with Sarah has been first class from start to finish. She has helped my daughter to reignite her love of Spanish and to regain confidence she had lost. Sarah is friendly, down to earth and always really quick to respond to messages. I would definitely recommend. Mrs De Garis

We have been learning French with Jonathan for the last five years. Since the beginning, we have seen steady progress with our ability all overseen by Jonathan. He is always patient and encouraging and pushes us each lesson to improve whilst reinforcing what we have already learned. We find him to be highly professional, a fantastic teacher and someone who makes the lessons fun whilst achieving great results. Mrs Stephanie D'albiac-reay

I would highly recommend Rachel as a tutor, especially given her exceptional work over the past three years with my two sons, who have special educational needs (SEN). Rachel has a remarkable ability to engage with children, adapting her teaching style to meet their individual needs effectively. Her patience and understanding have made a significant difference in their learning journey, demonstrating her dedication and skill in catering to diverse learning abilities. Rachel's approach is not only professional but also incredibly personal, ensuring that each child feels valued and supported. Her contribution to my son's education has been invaluable, and I am confident she will bring the same level of commitment and excellence to any teaching role. Irena Filipowska

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our French teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a French tutor coming to your home in Tavistock to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the French tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the French tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the French tutor is required to travel to your home, in Tavistock. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your French tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your French tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of French tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group French tuition in Tavistock depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
