Regular tuition for GCSE exam preparation or one off sessions to work on a specific area such as a written or spoken controlled assessment.  Lessons are tailored to the student’s needs and so could therefore focus on any of the four skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing or indeed a mix of all.  Emphasis will also be placed on understanding French grammar and increasing French vocabulary as required by the relevant GCSE exam board.

I can recommend Angela very highly. My three children have worked with her for about 5 years now and they have learnt a great deal from her. She prepared my 16 year old for her IGCSE French exams this year and she got an A*! So we are very pleased with that result. Angela is patient and engaging and she was very thorough in preparing my eldest. My next two will definitely continue working with her.  Chi-ann Rajah, Summer 2016

Angela has enabled my son to focus productively on his French and am sure has increased his grade. She has provided a realistic idea of the exam time tabling and structure. This has helped facilitate best use of the available time. She is extremely thorough, reliable, patient and effective and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Both my son and I can not thank her enough. My son achieved a B in his GCSE, before Angela became involved he lacked focus and direction and would not have passed French GCSE.  Katie McGoohan, Summer 2016

My son aged 15 had not learned French at school for over 2 years and wanted to take the subject at GCSE. The lessons with Angela were invaluable and provided good support, help & understanding in the subject & were a big boost to help my son achieve a grade A in French this year.  Salina Yildiz, Summer 2015

Angela’s tutor service is very good, affordable and when a student & family start to panic over a subject she brings calm and a positive, organised approach to get a result.  Caroline Lewis-Jones, Summer 2015

My daughter was struggling with her French GCSE work and was getting herself to the point where she wanted to drop the subject entirely. I called in the help of Angela for lessons at home once a week. She was patient and explained things to my daughter in a way that my daughter could understand. We are now just waiting on her GCSE results and in time my daughter intends to carry on to A LEVEL.

This wouldn't have been the case if we'd not found Angela. Highly recommend tutor indeed.  Sharon Roe, Summer 2014
