French conversation and tutoring in Taunton area with qualified teacher, with 20 years of experience.

Methodology

I the last 20 years I worked as MFL French teacher and tutor in higher and further education and as private tutor.
I am teaching/tutoring French in one-to-one and small groups focusing on students’ personal needs. After 1 year of studying French the students are able to communicate fluently; their speaking, writing, listening and reading skills are fit to manage everyday situations.

Experience

I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. I taught MFL French from beginner to business negotiation level. Over 90% of my students passed their respective exams within the pre-set time and with results equal or better than B grade.I worked for Graphic Design University where teaching covered, apart from the usual everyday language skills, the profession-specific knowledge of visual communication, analysis of graphic design and presentation. 100% of my students passed all of their semester-end exams which were examined in French in front of a French jury, and all of them were awarded the French diploma after 2 years of learning. 40% of them were offered jobs in France right after finishing the school. I worked for corporate clients at executive and management level. My pupils, most of them CEO or CFO negotiated, prepared reports, business analyses, board presentations or gave speeches in the language chosen within 6-12 months from start learning with me, depending on the regularity and frequency of courses. I taught members of management in companies like GE, Alcoa, Pfizer, BNP Paribas and many more.

Personal Profile
I have excellent communication and people skills developed over two decades of teaching and recently as a care assistant here in the UK. Dealing with people aged from 6 to 90 requires flexibility, negotiation and decision making skills, the ability to work in a team as well as individually. I speak several languages and apart from having been a MFL teacher I have also worked as translator and interpreter. I have good organisational skills developed as teacher, tutor, mentor working in several schools and colleges.
