About Aaron

Highly Qualified and Experienced Tutor of French, German and Spanish. Formerly Head of the Faculty of Modern Foreign Languages at Dauntsey`s School and Head of Spanish at Canford School, Aaron has had twenty-one years` experience tutoring French, German and Spanish to GCSE, IGCSE, A Level, Pre-U and IB students, as well as undergraduates from top UK universities, Common Entrance (CE) candidates, primary school children, and adults wishing to `taste` a new language, or develop their language skills.

His passion for languages is infectious and his LinguaAccelerateâ„¢ methodology is highly effective, inspiring confidence, motivation and interest, consistently achieving results which exceed expectations. Aaron is a Specialist Examiner for CIE (Spanish and French), AQA (Spanish), Edexcel (French) and OCR (French), equipping him with unique insight into `what examiners want`. His emphasis on language learning through meaningful communication is characteristic of `next generation` language tutors, infusing the language learning experience with stimulating, targeted activities, tailored to each learner`s needs.

Aaron has a Master`s Level Diploma in Language Teaching and a BA Double Honours in Spanish and German. He has also completed the final year of a BA Honours in French and a BSc in Psychology, specialising in language learning, perception, memory and problem solving. More recently he achieved a Distinction in his Master of Business Administration (MBA).

His understanding of the language learning process is what differentiates him from other language tutors, and this is reflected in the outstanding results his tutees consistently achieve. He is fully conversant with the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 in Modern Foreign Languages and Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 in French, German and Spanish. He has tutored the specifications of all the main examination boards for GCSE, IGCSE and A Level, and has prepared tutees for CIE Pre-U and International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations.

Aaron`s love of French, German and Spanish culture is equalled only by his love of teaching and tutoring. He is an expert in French, German and Spanish literature, an experienced teacher trainer and an avid lecturer in the language learning process.

My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Rosie
Aaron is coaching my daughter to support her A level French studies and hopefully secure a top grade. He is very personable and thorough and the Skype session format and his teaching style suits her particularly well. So far very definitely so good.
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Jackie
My son started tuition in June of this year. After the first tutorial with Aaron he said he felt he had learned more in the session than he had all year. He really likes the one to one, the constructive criticism and being spoken to as a young adult. His confidence has grown tremendously and he has moved from the foundation to the higher paper and is gaining top marks. Not once has he moaned about having to put in the extra hours or the tutorials and because he recognises the benefit he looks forward to them. Most importantly, he has become enthusiastic about learning languages and has enrolled on a language course at sixth form college.

I have used Aaron for 3 months and have seen an outstanding improvement in my own understanding of Spanish and learnt a vast amount of vocabulary .He straight away pointed out my weaknesses in my Spanish , which was my grammar and tenses , and we addressed them together straight away .He uses a wide range of techniques using a variety of websites and learning literature.I do homework to ensure I have a full understanding before progressing onto the next topic. I believe he has improved all aspects of my Spanish and continues to improve my preparation for my examinations in the upcoming weeks.I believe my tutor is perfect for me as he possesses all the grammatical knowledge and a great understanding of the language to assist me in adapting my casual Spanish , learnt from my families upbringing , into grammatically correct Spanish and providing me with a full understanding of grammar and array of vocabulary to improve my examination results .
