Hi! I'm Nicole,a language graduate from King's College London. I have a French and Portuguese degree and love sharing my knowledge with others. Since graduating I have been working as a private tutor and writer. Languages have always been my biggest passion but I also have an interest for maths, literature and geography, all of which I took at A-level. Although I am English born, I come from a Portuguese background and am therefore fluent in two languages. I also speak French. Having done a year abroad as part of my degree (Erasmus), it helped me to really develop my French oral skills. I lived and studied in Paris for 7 months so I am familiar with French culture, history and literature.
I aim to provide solid knowledge of what I am teaching, whilst also paying attention to the needs of the individual. For younger learners I like to motivate them by testing their comprehension with games and problems. I make sure the individual is understanding what I am teaching by making regular pauses and ensuring they have understood the material either by asking them to summarize what has just been said, or doing a quick mini test. Most importantly, I hope to show great passion for what I am teaching, and this will encourage the student to also be passionate in their learning. I try to make the material as interesting as possible in order to achieve the best results. I am open to either following the student's needs (help with their weekly homework), or planning the lessons myself using the curriculum.
