We offer 'Expert Language Tuition' especially for you or for your children

Methodology

I'm an experienced teacher who loves teaching, supporting and inspiring people of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced and degree level. Each lesson is planned for individual students e.g. to practise conversational language and improve fluency, to build and improve knowledge of grammar and structures, to practise reading and listening or to improve ability and confidence in writing in the target language.
I’m happy to offer a trial lesson to help you to make up your mind. If you decide to go ahead the trial lesson is free.
If you don’t wish to go ahead, no problem. However, I do request payment for the trial lesson to cover my time.

Background

I am a native English speaker and have been teaching English, French and German for over 30 years. I love teaching and can help to Improve your confidence as well as your fluency and understanding.

Whatever your language needs, I’m happy to help you.

Here are are some recommendations to help you to make your decision:
I got my A-Level results today and an A and two Bs; the A was in German! I really wasn't expecting that German would end up being my best subject! Thank you for all of the help you gave me."
DANIEL - A-LEVEL STUDENT

"Gerry's teaching was outstanding, he helped our son to improve his final Grade from a C to an A in just six months. He was always well prepared and tailored the sessions exactly to our son's needs. We would recommend Gerry without hesitation! "
ELIZABETH & RORY - PARENTS OF AN A-LEVEL STUDENT

"I stayed with Gerry's Homestay for two weeks to improve my English. It was a great experience and Gerry and his wife are very kind and helpful. In two weeks, I have progressed much better than I'd hoped. Gerry is very patient and explains everything, so you understand and don't repeat your mistakes. I really improved my English and had a great time!"
MEROUANE - FRENCH MECHANICAL ENGINEERING STUDENT

"Gerry was extremely friendly and made every effort to help us learn everything we could. I felt very comfortable in his lessons and felt able to ask him any questions I needed to improve my English. "
MANU & CRISTINA - SPANISH HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

"Gerry, I've never had a tutor who has helped me to feel so comfortable. Under your guidance my confidence has grown and I have come on leaps and bounds."
JULIE - English student

Dear Gerry,
I am very grateful for all you have done for me on this journey we have had together.
Although I have never said it to you verbally, I want to say that I appreciated every bit of our lessons. Thank you for helping me to achieve results in English which I had previously not thought possible. Thank you for believing in me and I will never hesitate to reach out to you again and/or to recommend your services to any person wanting them.
I wish you the best and I do hope we can talk again in the future.
Thank you for everything.

Best regards,
Student Z

Dear Gerry,
Our son’s IGCSE results came out a couple of hours ago and he obtained an A grade both in English Language and English Literature. We are all over the moon about it and wanted to share our happiness and gratitude with you as soon as possible. Thank you for your untiring efforts and time as well as diligence without which none of this would have been possible.
His overall results were very good. While I’m ecstatic about all the other grades, the ones that have pleasantly surprised me the most are his English ones as we both know he had quite some distance to cover in order to get a good grade. All kudos to you and your guidance .

Our sincerest and most heart felt thanks to you and our prayers for you and your family ,

Parent A

“Gerry's teaching was excellent. He stepped in at a critical time for us to help our son prepare for the 11+ entrance exams. He very quickly got to know our son, his strengths, interests and areas for development. He tailored the lessons accordingly, motivated our son and drew parallels for our son between his effort in English and his effort on the football field. Gerry was always well prepared and was flexible, adapting his lessons to our son’s needs and our requests. We would recommend Gerry without hesitation and in fact Gerry will begin teaching our daughter very shortly.”

Parents of 11+ pupil


As an overseas parent, we have constantly struggled to find a good tutor who could spark my son’s interest in the language. Luckily, another tutor recommended Gerry to us. We appreciated the fact that he took the trouble to establish what our needs were, the child’s learning style and our aims.
We have been very pleased with the work and pace he had achieved with our son. His confidence has been boosted and he has found enjoyment in the learning. Gerry has a wonderful way of putting the child at ease and communicating in an extremely encouraging manner. As parents, we admire his patience and enthusiasm. We would highly recommend Gerry to any parent for preparing for 11+, 13+, GCSE or beyond.

In my son’s words: “ Gerry is kind, organised, fun and fantastic!”

Gerry, I just wanted to thank you again for your tutoring in German, allowing me to get into uni to do a great course. I've passed this year, which has enabled me to go to Shanghai in September to study there for a year. Thanks again for everything!

DANIEL, UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT

Gerry helped me prepare for the speaking part of a level B2 Goethe Institut exam. He was supportive, helping me work on anything I found difficult. He was always very friendly, well prepared and I really liked the way we worked on particular phrases or language skills. I also liked the fact that he also spoke in the target language the whole time so you really felt immersed. I felt myself improving really quickly and by the time I got to the exam, i felt very confident, eventually getting 24/25 for speaking when I got the result! Idm really pleased with the lessons and would highly recommend Gerry to anyone looking to improve their language skills!
