St Andrews French Graduate offering flexible French tutoring and lessons in Edinburgh

Methodology

I base sessions on what the tutee needs to focus on most (eg, focussing on subjects studied at school/exam prep etc) as well as throwing in some topics that are of personal interest to the tutee.

Grammar is important, but fluency and comprehension are too so my lessons are a split of grammar, reading and oral practice.

Background

I am a recent graduate from the University of St Andrews where I got my degree in French with spoken French. I have lived in France, where I taught English in French schools, as well as giving private tutoring sessions.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £70
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £140

Details

Due to the nature of my job, I would like to request that any cancellations are made at least 48 hours before the lesson is scheduled. If a cancellation is within 48 hours of the lesson I will ask for 50% of the lesson price.

For rescheduling I ask that any changes are communicated at least 48 hours before the lesson is scheduled, but as the lesson will take place, no charge will be incurred.
