Reviews of bespoke languages tuition

09 December 2016

I can genuinely say that my Oxbridge Spanish and French tutor is the best teacher I have ever had. I found him only 3 weeks before my interviews but his dedication and motivation were amazing and we managed to cover so much, including works by Lorca, Márquez and Camus. He has taught me not only to analyse texts but also to enjoy the process, a task that used to be very daunting, and he has made grammar that was previously difficult and complex seem perfectly simple! By having lessons over Skype, I was still able to continue with lessons when I was abroad. I cannot speak highly enough of my tutor and I couldn’t recommend anyone better for Oxbridge Spanish and French tuition.

After having had a BLT French tutor for a month now, I would say that considerable progress has been made as a consequence. Immediately my French tutor was able to recognise weaker areas in my ability and thus provide productive and focused sessions to combat these problems. I have gathered not only more confidence in French, but excellent advice on such things as grammar, pronunciation, common mistakes and many more various skills. After looking back over a month’s worth of sessions, I have surprised myself how quickly I have progressed in French and would without a doubt recommend BLT to anyone seeking tuition in languages.

I have had a few Oxbridge French tuition sessions with BLT and I believe the advice given to me was invaluable to my university application, not just Oxbridge, but also to my other choices. I find my lessons incredible productive, and I learn a lot in the short space of time. This was particularly useful in the run up to my French MLAT, as I could learn so much more in a Skype session with my BLT Oxbridge French tutor than the same amount of time alone or at school in a larger class, as I find I learn better when things are explained to me. The lessons have also clearly been tailored to my needs, and I feel my tutor knows my weak areas. I'm set homework after each session, which although by no means compulsory, is incredibly helpful for going over what I've learned in each session.

My Oxbridge Spanish tutor has been fantastic. Even in our first session he assessed my level of Spanish and areas of weakness and has catered his teaching style to how I learn best. My tutor has always encouraged me in each lesson by allowing me to work at my own pace, which has given me a lot more confidence in my own ability. In terms of Oxbridge preparation my tutor provides useful ideas on what the admissions team are looking for, and how to best prepare for the admissions process, particularly in the interview. I would definitely recommend BLT for anyone who is applying for Oxbridge or simply wants to improve their language skills.

As an adult learner, I find learning with this Spanish tutor very enjoyable and effective. He shows a true passion for the subject, and empathy for the struggles with learning a second (or in my case third) language. Each session is structured with clear learning objectives that motivate me and make me strive for the best results. With interactive games, this Spanish tutor makes language learning actually fun and memorable. For faster progression and independent learning, sessions are also supported with high quality exercise books. Easily the best Spanish tuition I've ever received, and I thank him for all my progress in Spanish.
