I am a French native speaker studying a master in Translating at Heriot-Watt university.
I offer lessons tailored to the student's needs. I myself have been through the process of learning several foreign languages, and I know the time, energy, and personal investment that it takes. I promise to make learning French as enjoyable as possible... and to make grammar as easy as possible! I do my best to be reachable and supportive.
I am also happy to revise your resume, cover letter, and proofread your essays.
We can meet at my home, at your home, or in a public place.
À très bientôt !
I started tutoring while studying my bachelor's degree in Paris. I have now 6 years of experience giving private lessons to French high school students, mostly for French literature (le bac français !). I also had the opportunity to give private lessons in philosophy, and to teach French to secondary school pupils. This year, I am teaching English to two French students via Skype. I have experience working with groups: while I was living in Sweden in 2016, I facilitated discussions for French at a language cafe.
