Welcome to Sympa Tuition. 

I am a fully qualified, experienced teacher of French and Spanish.   I have dedicated over 20 years of my professional life to the teaching of students of all abilities in secondary schools to achieve their full potential in a foreign language.

Before teaching, I worked as a trilingual secretary for the Secretariat of the European Parliament based in Luxembourg.

I am still passionate and supportive about language learning and am offering a personalised tuition service for school children studying N5 to Advanced Higher living in or near Bearsden.

For school pupils who may need some help to have more confidence and more self belief in their ability to achieve of their best in French or Spanish I can give them that little bit of individual support in addition to their classroom learning.  I can offer individual tuition in my Bearsden home, at the student’s home or lessons via zoom.  Flexible hours during term time.

All my lessons will be carefully prepared for the individual needs of each school pupil.  Please contact me for more details.
