Biochemistry student at UCL offering French and English classes to students up to university level. I can help for written and oral expression as well as accent and vocabulary issues.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based on active learning through discussions, dialogues and listening, as well as by assimilating essential vocabulary and understanding written grammar properly. Each class lasts one hour during which I will interrogate students on topics that we have covered the week before. My courses are very linked to the level of the student and can be managed as the course is going. The first lesson is aimed at finding the key issues and the ways they can be solved.

Background

I am a second year biochemistry student at UCL. I grew up in Paris my whole life and I come from a multicultural background, my mother being Indian and my father being French. I have already given Maths and English classes to students aged 9 to 15 in Paris for 2 years.

Mira is an excellent and very friendly tutor. She taught me intermediate level french and helped me to pass a few accreditation exams. I would highly recommend Mira for anyone seeking to understand, speak, write or read french.

I started learning French at home through YouTube videos but without any results. I then found Mira on superprof and thanks to her great lessons, I have made a great leap in my learning of this difficult yet beautiful language. Mira is always on time, has the ability to explain any grammar and punctuation rules, but more importantly, she is patient.
I definitely recommend her if you wish to learn French quickly and efficiently.
Merci Mira!
