Meet Colin who is just one of our first-class French tutors:
“I have been involved with education, either in a voluntary or a paid capacity for over forty years, and I don’t seem to find it boring yet! After a Joint Honours Degree in Comparative Literature and French Language, and a Masters in European Studies, both at UEA. I have taught in comprehensives, sixth forms, adult education, evening classes and distance learning. I have also been an examiner – both marking and writing examination papers – since 1978, as well as working at regional and national levels for the NATE (National Association for the Teaching of English) and the NUT (National Union of Teachers). In my spare time I garden or write articles, poetry and stories – some published!”
*The specification suggests that 300 hours is needed. You’ll also need time to complete assignments and prepare yourself for exams and some courses like English literature involve a lot of reading. Everyone is different so it’s impossible to say with certainty how long a course will take you, but you should expect to spend longer than 300 hours. Taken across the length of time we recommend, this equates to approximately 5 hours per week. This will increase if you choose to take it over a shorter time frame or may be less if you are retaking a subject and have covered a lot of of the course content.
