French, German and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) tuition in St Albans.
My name is Barbara Thomas and I have been a teacher of French, German and English in comprehensive schools for over 35 years. As I came from a family of teachers, I was delighted to join the profession which I enjoyed throughout my working life. My wide experience of teaching French in Primary, Middle and Secondary schools has allowed me to develop and refine my teaching techniques and adapt my approach to the needs of all students, whatever their age or ability. After my long career, during which I have been Head of Department twice, I have continued to use my skills to help language learners gain confidence and make progress by giving them individual attention.
Languages I Teach
Learning a language is a great way to communicate with people. A language can also open our eyes to other cultures and new horizons.
French is spoken by more than 220 million people on the five continents of the world. It is the language of culture, cookery, international relations and travel. The ability to speak and understand French can be an asset!
German is the most widely spoken language in the European Union. It is a leading language for business, the Internet and science.
Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire
I tutor from my home where there is a comfortable and welcoming working environment, where I am able to keep and maintain a range of contemporary and updated resources.
