I love teaching French and Spanish! After studying languages at Hull University (BA Hons) I  worked in export sales and teaching (PGCE Sheffield Hallam University, 1996) as well as travelling widely and living in France.

I now offer local face to face or online tuition in any area of French or Spanish for exams, pleasure or business!

I take pride in offering reliable and personal service and thorough preparation. Follow up advice and help between lessons is a pleasure.

From beginners to advanced, no one is too young or too old. Whatever your reason for learning I offer  lessons tailored to your individual level and needs.

GCSE and A-Level exam preparation

Extra  support and tuition helps build vital confidence and cements the knowledge and topics covered at school. Focused one to one sessions give greater attention than schools are often able to manage and candidates are more willing to ask questions and be willing to practice speaking French or Spanish without their peers listening. It is daunting! The exam techniques I cover help across all the exams not just languages.

DBS cleared for your peace of mind.

Adult Learning

My adult students learn for many different reasons;

  • regular holidays or a place in France or Spain.
  • a desire to refresh old skills. 
  • regular business with French or Spanish speaking customers and an appreciation of the benefits of at least making an effort to communicate in their language.

I plan and deliver sessions tailored to your motivation, level and interests.   Face to face or Online!

Home Schooling

I can plan and deliver sessions to small groups of children who do not attend high school.


My style is friendly and encouraging. I travel to you and offer flexible timings with a discount for a block of pre-paid lessons.
