Friendly and enthusiastic postgraduate offers tailor-made French lessons in Norton, Malton, or online.

Methodology

I believe that each individual learns in a different way; and also has different goals. I try to tailor-make my lessons to fit the needs of the individual. I also believe believe that learning should be fun; and not a chore!

I tend to use powerpoints and worksheets to conduct my lessons

Experience

I have a PGCE in Secondary Modern Foreign Languages, (French, and German). I also have an MA in Translation from French into English, and a TEFL qualification. I have been tutoring individuals and couples since 2015. My students have all made significant in terms of both language acquisition and confidence
