I'm a strong believer that each student has their own individual learning style and I am happy to use different resources to tailor build lessons. I like to make lessons relevant to French culture, society and current affairs as I feel lessons are more engaging if their content has practical applications in everyday life.
I have a degree in French and Linguistics from the University of Southampton and have experience teaching in both English and French schools as well as private tutoring whilst living in London.
At University I carried out a teaching placement at a secondary school and sixth form working with years 7-13 planning and teaching classes, working one to one with students and in small groups.
I also taught English with the British Council for a year in South France, providing support and additional tailored tutoring sessions to students in preparation for their International Baccalaureate exams.
Perfect! Rory is a really good French tutor and he is very humble. My 11-year-old is taking classes from him and Rory is preparing him for a scholarship. Rory is very punctual and he has a really good knowledge of French. He also works well with kids. According to my son, Rory makes "French interesting". Thanks, Rory, for helping him. :)
I was Rory’s Head if Sixth Form and know him as a kind, warm and patient person, who was empathetic to the needs of his fellow students with a good sense of humour. I have no doubt that he’s gone on to develop his own language skills through his degree and since, but moreover has excellent personal skills to now be an encouraging tutor. I’ve tutored for years myself and would see Rory as an excellent choice.
Studied French at university with Rory, who helped me many a time when I was stuck. Was always really patient and really knew his stuff!
Rory was a teacher assistant in my high school class in France for a year. He would tutor English in small groups of 4 people at the time on current issues.
Rory is a very pedagogical teacher who cares about his students and that makes the class and the topic studied interactive, dynamic, and interesting. Him having taught small groups of students makes him experienced in adapting his teaching to the individual/small group. I highly recommend him !
Rory would make an excellent tutor as he is reliable and approachable. Rory supported many GCSE students at my school in the language department as a student ambassador. His subject knowledge is excellent and he has a great understanding of language teaching.
