Experienced educator offering academic or casual French tuition in and around Edinburgh

About the lesson

Learning happens best in a judgement-free environment. I work hard to make sure that all students are at ease and, ultimately, that they enjoy what they are learning.

I believe in a learner-centred approach, allowing students to play an active role in the learning process. Everyone learns a little differently, so I try to understand a learner’s particular style in order to tailor lessons and activities to that student's needs. It is important to develop and work towards specific goals, but also to leave room for creativity and imagination.

My objective is to give students the tools and strategies they need to be able to learn and study effectively as they continue on in their education.

About Linda

I am a passionate and patient educator with over a decade of experience teaching at the post-secondary level. I have also tutored for several years in a variety of contexts. Most recently, I have supported students taking SQA National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher qualifications in both English and French. I have also worked with learners preparing for IELTS and TCF exams, as well as with groups and individuals wishing to improve their French language skills.

I have always received excellent evaluations and feedback from both learners and colleagues, along with an exceptional achievement rate among my students.

My teaching experience includes:

- 10 + years as a Course Instructor at the University of Toronto and the University of Toronto Scarborough.
I taught all levels of French, from beginner to advanced. I delivered grammar lessons and developed activities for communication practice. I also taught a range of literature classes, from introductory courses to specialist subjects.

- 8 years as a personal tutor.
I have taught French and English to individuals and groups in both private and professional settings.

- 5 years as a tutor with the Toronto Public Library's Adult Literacy Programme.
I provided support to adult learners with reading difficulties and helped them to improve their literacy skills.

- Currently working as a tutor of French with the Adult Learning Programmes of both East Lothian and Midlothian Councils.
I teach a range of classes to groups of adult learners and I have also delivered family learning sessions for children and their parents/carers.
