Experienced languages teacher offering tuition in French in the Solihull and Warwickshire area.

Methodology

In lessons I make sure all of the four key skills are covered, that is: listening, speaking, reading and writing. I try to make lessons fun and interactive and include an element of competition when teaching in school. I teach French up to and including GCSE level so ideal for students up to Year 11, someone older looking to improve their French language skills, or indeed complete beginners!

Experience

I've been teaching in a couple of different secondary schools for the last ten years in Surrey and Sussex before making the move to the Solihull area. My main language is French which I've taught up to Year 11 and I also teach Spanish at KS3. I'm passionate about languages and always try to include a cultural context in lessons. I believe the best way to learn a language is to visit the country and I've led many trips to France in my time!
