Tutoring Style and/or Experience
Whether you are a student taking GCSE or A levels in French and need confidence for your exam or a professional willing to have a proper conversation with your French colleagues or clients, or just want to enjoy your next holidays in a French-speaking country, whether on a daily basis or intensive classes, we will first talk about what YOU are looking for and how I will help you to achieve your language goals.
I am a very patient and dedicated French native speaker. I tailor my lessons to the students' needs and expectations. Tutoring is not just guiding students through their learning but also giving them confidence and enabling them to experience lessons in a relaxed, friendly and yet serious way.
I have been a teacher for over 6 years and have a very diverse experience as I have been working in an Alliance franšaise in Mexico, a language centre, two adult education centres and two tutoring agencies. My first teaching experience was as a language assistant in Preston, Lancashire. I have had students ranging from 7 years old to 65+, from absolute beginners to advanced levels. I've given private and group classes and intensive courses (up to 7h a day). I have over 2000 teaching hours, including more than 700 hours of private tuition (basically in French Literature, French and English as Foreign Languages).
I teach French, English as a Foreign Language and can also teach methodology (including essay writing) and primary school subjects to students following the French curriculum (such as CNED, distance learning).
Coming from France where I recently taught French Literature to a student preparing a diploma in Accounting, I am now in charge of two groups of beginner students in a London language school and give private tuition (self-employed as well as with two tutoring agencies).
