My style is friendly and relaxed whilst aiming to maintain structured learning objectives. I have developed lesson plans that range from Essay Writing and Structuring, Grammatical Practice to Debate and Public Speaking. Often, my lessons are designed to unite a piece of literature with informed historical contexts, philosophy and literary theory. For example, a lesson on American Literature might incorporate a poem by Maya Angelou, an essay by journalist Garnette Cadogan and contemporary articles on American Politics. In this way, students are encouraged to develop an informed perspective of the subject, rather than just adhering to a mark scheme.
The best way to learn is to feel involved in the language and subject you wish to develop, and I believe that making the lessons fun is paramount to the learning process. Please do not hesitate to message me and discuss the best lesson for you, I'm more than happy to spend time tailoring something to your needs.
I have up to four years of experience teaching English as a Foreign Language, from the very youngest of children (ages 4-11) with French Companies such as Babylangues, to students (ages 11-18) in renowned International Summer Schools, to Professional Adults in a private context.

Lucy is a fantastic tutor!
She tutored my 8- and 14-year-old boys in English. They've never really shown an interest in the subject before, which is probably why they were performing poorly, but Lucy made it engaging for them, and they're getting a lot more from class now. I even caught my older (Luke) reading a book of his own accord...
