Private Language Tutoring



Business Support



“Karine’s Languages & Administrative Services” was founded by Karine Chevalier-Watts in May 2011 to respond to the growing demand for private language tutoring, translating and interpreting services in French, Italian and Spanish. Realising that she could add value for her clients and their businesses by using her secretarial skills and experience, she started offering ancillary services such as foreign client liaison and relocation administration which were greatly appreciated.

The friendly, personal, flexible, and affordable service continued to attract clientele and demand for other languages led to an expansion of the business using linguists carefully selected by Karine to enable services of the same high calibre to be provided in an array of languages.

The team now consists of both English and foreign native speakers who are UK based, fully qualified and experienced teachers, translators and interpreters, all with the same high degree of computer literacy.
