Female French Tutor for all ages and levels, 2 years of experience online and face to face!

Methodology

I have mainly taught my previous company's employees. It was a cafe and some chalets in the French Alps and most staff was English. I was tutoring the cafe and chalet staff in group lessons and and private lesson. From teaching the team in the cafes, other English locals decided to join the lessons. It was very friendly and interactive with some role play and real life interactions ( Ex: going to a shop and ask directions, ask questions about items etc..)

Background

My strongest interest is sports. I am a very active person, having worked seasons (summer and winter) I have been accustomed to working in environments where sport was the key attraction.

From snowboarding, to trail running in the mountains to surfing and long distance running by the beach, my lifestyle has been primarily focused on an active lifestyle outside of work.

My passion for running has grown since graduating university, my most recent long distance races have been Marathons across Europe which I have completed with my father. 2 years ago I did not imagine I could be running 26.5 miles but his determination and encouragement gave me the confidence and strength. I have now completed 3 marathons and 6 half marathons! Long distance running requires determination, tenacity and motivation, which are transferable skills that I believe I also bring to the workplace.
I also practise yoga and meditation which is a way to keep calm and in control.

Travelling is also a hobby, I thoroughly enjoy visiting different countries and exploring the world.
I appreciate learning about other cultures and believe it helps broaden my horizons. I have worked in several places in Europe with colleagues from all over the world, which has also encouraged my love of travelling.

Arctic House (latest employer) was a 5*Eco Friendly Catered Chalet company. I am very passionate about the environment and always striving to do more. Working for a company that has an eco friendly ethos is a key element for my personal job satisfaction. My opinion is that environmental responsibility is something that constantly needs updating and raising awareness on, and this topic is something I am very keen to promote. Of course, this doesn’t refer to taking out the recycling every Tuesday, but rather encouraging the students into participating in community litter collection and recycling activities.

While cooking may not be the most relevant of interests, it is something I am passionate about. I have been a vegetarian for ten years, for health and conscious reasons which always pushes me to learn about new ways to eat and live a healthy lifestyle.

I am a very open minded individual and I did not speak English growing up. I left France at the age of 17 and moved to the UK where I studied English for a year in a British host family. I pushed myself to absorb British culture and have treasured working and speaking in English ever since. I grew up doing baby sitting and au-pairing as my firsts part-time jobs while studying and looked after my younger sibling growing up. I am very maternal and like to care for others.
