« Wishing to pick up my French studies where I left them almost 50 years ago, Valérie accepted the challenge with endless patience, good humour and whole-hearted encouragement. Learning from a native French speaker is a huge advantage as it tunes one’s ear to authentic, everyday French. Valérie’s interest in the structure (the nuts and bolts) of language leads to a better understanding and appreciation of French. Her use of newspaper and radio articles also gives new and interesting insights into French life and culture. I have been having lessons with Valérie for almost five years. I could not have wished for a more pleasant and supportive teacher. »

Dedicated french tutor with a smile offering French tuition up to university level, very experienced.

Methodology

I often start my lessons by teaching a phrase or an idiom linked to the cultural topic of the day. I use articles from French newspapers or radios to teach grammar in context and to teach new vocabulary. I use many examples to check the understanding of a new grammatical context.

Experience

I am a secondary trained teacher with many years of experience in teaching French in high schools, especially A level French and the DELF and DALF at university. I am very patient and my aim is to understand the way you learn best to help you to make excellent progress.

Valérie is a fantastic tutor, very fun, kind and supportive and with great tips and techniques for helping you to learn and remember things. Valérie's teaching style was very effective for me, and allowed me to really grow in confidence. She always encourages you by starting up fun conversations in French and giving you tips if you've forgotten the gender of a word (for example). I HIGHLY recommend Valérie, she's brilliant!

This lady tailor makes her classes to suit your needs. She is highly experienced tutoring in a range of environments from college, university and home group settings. She is french and passionate about the French culture so her lessons have an authentic French flavour to them. She is very encouraging in her teaching style & has a natural ability to develop an individuals potential. I was fortunate to have her as a tutour for French conversation & was delighted with my progress.

Valerie is a very thorough and patient tutor. I really enjoyed my lessons with her. She made the content fun and relevant to me. My French has greatly improved, thanks to Valerie, and so has my confidence.

I have known Valérie for almost 30 years. We are fellow linguists and teachers and we trained together at UEA Norwich. We were even based at the same school for our first teaching practice. I have seen Valérie teach on several occasions and as well as being a native speaker of French, which is a huge benefit when learning a language, she is enthusiastic and fun! Because she has lots of experience, her lessons are carefully planned to suit each individual’s needs and interests. She is always well-organised and reliable. I would thoroughly recommend her as your tutor of French!

Valérie helped me with my studies during my A-Levels, and was my biggest cheerleader in developing my French skills. She really teaches with care, and will always encourage you to improve. Her lessons are positive, informative, and detailed - her in-depth approach to teaching really helps with factual recall. My main problem area was French grammar, and each session would focus on the memorisation, practice, and application of each tense every week. Through Valérie’s teaching, I was able to develop a deeper understanding of French than I got in my classroom.
