French lessons delivered in group or individual classes by a MA graduate with a passion for languages

Methodology

I vary my methods according to my pupils as there are a variety of learners and I believe each student should have their classes delivered in a way that will improve their results the most. In general, I adopt a communicative approach to classes, ensuring students have maximum time immersed in the language, speaking and performing activities in the target language.

Background

I am a language graduate from the University of Manchester and have a MA in TESOL from the University of Liverpool. I have over six years experience tutoring, helping students from primary to a-level improve their grades. I have also lived in France for six months giving me insight into different francophone cultures and accents which I am able to pass onto my students.
