I’d never thought before, until Tavistock Tutors matched me with my family, that I would be teaching somewhere like Azerbaijan: but I am so utterly pleased with the fantastic time I spent teaching my ten-year-old pupil French and English.
The family were looking for a girl with some knowledge of Russian, so we were the perfect match. Everything was covered and I received a really good salary- but what was more, I got to visit a part of the world that I might otherwise have never seen.
I got on so well with the young girl, who turned out to be one of the brightest students that I’ve ever taught. I noticed a marked improvement in her French and English (so much so that she got in to all the UK schools she applied for the following year), but I also saw a huge improvement in my Russian, which was an added bonus.
