I am fun, enthusiastic and creative and my approach to learning a language follows these principles - it should be an exciting experience, not a a painful task!
I absolutely adore any and all things English and French, and I am highly motivated to share my passion with others. My background in linguistics, translations and my studies in English and French literature means that I have gained a thorough understanding of the mechanisms and differences between these two languages, which in turn means that I can adapt and tailor my skills to each individual student.
My name is Elodie. I am a native French speaker. I have been living and studying in Paris, New York, London, and I am now based in Oxford where I am a doctoral student in both French and English history and linguistics. I have been tutoring French privately for children and adult learners for many years, both in France and the UK, and ever since I moved to Oxford. I formerly completed a BA at the Sorbonne in French and English literature, history and linguistics, which gave me a thorough understanding from the inside out on how these two languages work and how they differ.

I am available to improve your French and/or English, may it be through conversations, lessons or translations depending on your needs. I am flexible and I would be honoured to meet you and discuss online or in person here in Oxford.
Every tutoring lesson has three parts:
- Pre- tutoring homework: generally sent by email, marked and examined during lessons
- Tutoring: step by step analysis of any questions that you might be struggling with, focusing on isolating and correcting the part of the process which you are struggling with.
- Homework: generally given afterwards by email, after being adjusted to suit the student`s needs.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
I strongly advise for our lessons to last a minimum of 1,5 hours.
