For the past five years I have also worked as an Assessment Associate of French GCSE oral exams for the board Edexcel.
Additionally, I have tutored many students in French and Spanish, from beginners to advanced, some of whom were preparing to sit national examinations (GCSE, AS, A2).
Before returning to teaching I worked in administration and finance doing a variety of roles, which helped me develop, amongst others, my communication and IT skills. I am confident using word processors, databases, spreadsheets, e-mail, the Internet, etc. and can type between 75 and 80 wpm.
