Experienced French native speaker providing high-quality French lessons for all levels and ages

Methodology

Lesson content will be chosen by you! Please contact me to tell me more about your expectations and targets to make sure that you will benefit from the best lessons, tailored to your specific needs. Every student is unique and deserves a personalised lesson!

When teaching, I create new materials for each student as no two people are the same. I always give homework to help process and practise what was said during the lesson.

Learning from me also means your accent will be correct. I remember a student who used to pronounce ‘merci beaucoup’ (thanks a lot) ‘mercy bowcue’ which means ‘thanks pretty bum’!!! She eventually got it right, it’s ‘boku’.

Background

Throughout my five-year experience in education, I have become very well acquainted with the GCSE, iGCSE, A-Levels and Pre-U expectations. I am, therefore, offering to give all the tools and tips needed to pass successfully these exams.

Over the past two years I have also been working part-time as a self-employed French tutor and I have engaged with a wide variety of students from the age of 5 up to 75!
I have recently specialised in Oxbridge tutoring, helping students of French in Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
