Language Tutor Craig

Craig Pattison, Tyneside Language Tutors

I  am a teacher of 23 years and have taught languages in secondary and primary schools throughout this time. I have recently decided to leave the classroom and work more flexibly and am looking forward to tutoring individuals rather than large classes of 30 students! I have been interested in languages since beginning my lessons in year 7 and love nothing better than passing on my knowledge to others. I keep up to date with my languages skills by reading books and news articles; I also love to watch German and French films. I believe that anyone can learn a language; it’s never too early or too late to begin! It’s a great way to keep the brain active and, most importantly, it’s fun!
