Claire has been providing lessons for my 15 year old son for the past 2 years. Claire has engaged with him from the start. She is very committed and genuinely interested in his progress at school, not only in French. She is very patient and not fazed by his adolescent manner. She applies different teaching methods to suit his way of learning. I highly recommend Claire to anyone looking for an excellent tutor.
The lessons I had with Claire definitely helped me to get a better result in GCSE French. I improved my grade from a C in the mock to an A in the real exam. The opportunity for extra oral practise increased my confidence speaking the language. Claire was also very good at explaining things and the feedback she gave me on marked homework was very helpful. I really enjoyed the lessons too!
Claire has proved an excellent French tutor for my daughter who is in Year 8. She is reliable, patient, enthusiastic and comes well prepared for every lesson, tailor making it to suit what my daughter is doing in class. She has also gone beyond requirements to assist at times on Italian when my daughter has needed help. She is a great asset as a tutor and is highly recommended by us.
Claire helped me for my final exams for my university degree of French. Claire was an exceptional help because her knowledge of French is second to none. Claire has a highly detailed knowledge of the culture and politics of France as well as history and current events. Furthermore, she was able to help me on some advanced grammar. Claire was also able to help me with my speaking and writing skills. Claire was a pleasure to work with and always had interesting and insightful views.
I have been studying with Claire for 2 years, and have thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. Having studied A-Level French about 10 years ago, I have acquired some bad habits and forgotten a lot of the grammar and rules! Claire has been very thorough and clear in helping me revise and relearn these topics, and we are now working towards a DELF B2 exam. She is always able to answer and explain clearly any question, and is also very knowledgeable about the history of French language as well as French culture.
Claire has been teaching French to my partner and I for the last 14 months. We have a weekly 1 hr session. She is very professional and very thorough. She pre-plans each lesson and works with books and other reference tools, but in the main we work through conversation. Claire is very attentive to our individual abilities and adjusts tasks accordingly.
Claire also makes it a very enjoyable experience.
I have had French conversation classes for one year with a friend.
Claire encourages you to speak freely, correcting mistakes in a sensitive way that doesn't interrupt the flow of the conversation. She also managed to balance the needs of two students at quite different levels, setting up role plays that allowed us to interact, and explaining grammar and vocabulary points clearly and concisely. Claire also helped me with some translations from French and with drafting letters.
I had tuition with Claire twice a week to help prepare me for my French university exam, which consisted of an oral presentation and a 3 hour reading and writing exam.
She understood my difficulties with having a learning difficulty and juggling my French work with my assignments for my degree.
She is a patient and efficient tutor and makes the lessons interesting, fun and enjoyable and I would highly recommend her teaching services to all ages and abilities. She has boosted my confidence in French.
To put it simply, Claire has been 'fantastic'.
She has helped our son to build up his confidence and knowledge in a very short period of time. With Claire's support our son who had a predicted score of C for GCSE has achieved an A* for his last 3 controlled assessments.
Equally our son no longer dreads French at school having struggled with it for years. I am so pleased that we have Claire as his French tutor and would highly recommend her.
Claire understood exactly what I needed from the sessions and combines an easy manner with due rigour. I always take something of value from the lessons while Claire is pleasant, personable and easy to deal with.
