I've been tutoring in French and English in Muswell Hill since 2012, and my students obtain excellent results.
I challenge students to think confidently and critically about language and literature, by developing their analytical, essay-writing and exam skills. I want them to get high marks, and I also want them to be passionate readers, thinkers and speakers. I can teach anywhere between 11+ and postgraduate.
'Our son was like many boys - with enough talent to get an A* but not enjoying the subject and not quite getting over the line. Ingrid was great. She not only got him the skills he needed, but her passion for the subject was also infectious. He got his A*.'
'I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Ingrid Wassenaar as a French tutor. She has been brilliant and I am sure that it was her tutorship that enabled my son Joe to attain the high A level grade that he required in order to get into the university of his choice.'
'Ingrid has been an inspiration for my son who was studying for A level French. She gave him confidence, challenged him and most of all made him believe in himself. He went on to achieve fantastic results in his final exams this year. This would not have been possible without Ingrid's guidance.'
'By the time I left Ingrid I felt as though she really understood how I think and learn. The lessons were always so much fun and conversation led me into avenues of thought I never would have thought myself capable of; they became a highlight of my week. My place at Cambridge owes a lot to her experience and her teaching.'
'Thank you for all you have done for our daughter. Your sessions together have really helped boost her confidence as well as sharpen her focus for exams. She got her offer at Manchester.'
