My lessons are tailored to the students' needs. I like to use the initial lesson as an 'ice breaker' and an opportunity to gauge where they are with their French, so that I can target the tuition for their specific needs and work on their personal weaknesses.
I am an experienced French tutor with over 25 years tutoring pupils of all ages and levels, from beginner to fluent. Help with school exams (GCSE, A Level, University level), conversational French also undertaken. Over the past 25 years, I have been tutoring hundreds of students and have achieved great results in getting my students to the required grades for their exams. I am friendly, patient and adaptable to suit your personal needs with the language.
Cancellations accepted at no charge to the student if lesson is cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. Cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to lesson will be charged at full rate.
