My teaching methodology is highly personalised, and tailored to suit the goals of the individual or group that I'm working with. If academic achievement is the object of our sessions, I'm happy to help with reading and oral comprehension and expression, essay writing, and revision. For professionals, written and oral expression are central features, and can be paired with building familiarity with specialised vocabulary, writing correspondences, and document translation.
I have extensive experience teaching and translating between French and English, and enjoy working with individuals at all academic and professional levels. During my M.A. at the University of St Andrews, I gained experience tutoring undergraduate students specialising in French, and translated contemporary geopolitical as well as historical documents for leading academics. Professionally, I remain active in French and English academic communities, organizing conferences and providing translations, while also overseeing the management of extracurricular clubs operated by the childcare company Energy Kidz.
