I give lessons in French to GCSE students and beginners to the language as well. The lessons start with a warm up activity to get the students speaking as much French as possible, then we move onto a grammar point and finally we put that grammar into action in a combination of conversational and written activities.
I have been teaching Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 for 2 years in total, preparing the latter for their GSCEs. I have taught at a number of schools in the local area with groups varying in size from 5 students to 30!
