I tutor children and adults. I have a preference for teaching students who already have a basic level of French and I am very keen on working with advanced students who are willing to improve a specific topic (like pronunciation, academic writing, etc), but I have experience with beginners and will adapt to your level.
On our first lesson together we will assess your needs and your skills.
It is important that we find out which method suits you better. Some students will need a very didactic, grammar-based teaching, when others will respond better to a more global approach of French, through reading and mostly conversation. I know how confusing French grammar and syntax can be to an English learner - and sometimes there's not much to do but learn it by heart... but when you start exploring the language through the right medium (it can be literature, films, newspaper articles, comic books, or just conversation...) and through the subjects that interest you the most, you'll be surprised how quickly you can improve!
Moving to a foreign country made me realise the challenges you face when you confront your school-based knowledge with real-life spoken language. Knowing your basic grammar and vocabulary is one thing, being able to hold a social or professional conversation with a native speaker is something else!
Whether you have a specific goal (exam or degree qualification, full professional capacity, reading Proust's 6 volumes of "In Search of Lost Time" in French...) or just want to get a bit of practice and insight about French culture before a trip to France: let's work together and get that French going!
i studied French literature and linguistics at University. I have tutored children and adults in French and English, with a focus on exams preparation.
