I’m Jessie, a qualified teacher with 15 years of experience teaching and tutoring languages. I have a strong record of helping all kinds of learners achieve success in languages, including French and Italian to A Level, Spanish to GCSE and English as a Foreign Language at all levels of Cambridge exams.
My qualifications include a PGCE from the University of Bristol, a BA Hons in French Studies with Italian from the University of Warwick and a Certificate in English Language Teaching.
Over the years, I’ve taught at high schools in France, banks, manufacturing companies and a local newspaper in Italy, and for six years at the prestigious Millfield School where I held a leadership position. I also spent four years in London using French and Italian on a daily basis in international companies at The Thinking Traveller and McArthurGlen European Development.
I started tutoring independently as a way to fit teaching around family life. My first students were local children who came to my house on Saturday mornings and learnt with their parents at the kitchen table. I then took on a few exam students before starting to develop my own short courses for adults and children learning for pleasure.
My aim with Living Room Linguists is to enable people at any stage of life to develop a love of languages through live online classes and engaging learning materials.
My group courses offer lots of opportunities to practise speaking and listening, with structured, manageable and well-supported tasks carried out in pairs using breakout rooms on Zoom.
Whether you want to get off the beaten track on your next holiday or simply fancy taking up a new hobby from the comfort of your sofa, I have a French, Italian or Spanish course to suit you!
Merci, Gracias, Grazie, Thank you!
