My teaching method is student-centered and task based.
I base my classes on the student’s needs and use authentic documents (videos, audio recordings, news articles) as well as a selection of books that I have tested over the years.
I approach each topic by doing thorough research and making sure to use support documents that will be of interest to the student while also helping him/her progress efficiently in their language acquisition.
I am a highly qualified French teacher (I have 2 Masters in teaching and linguistics) and I have been teaching group and individual classes for the past 10 years at University, at the Alliance Française and at the Institut Français.
Nathalie taught me French ahead of my diplomatic posting to Paris and was simply the best tutor that I could have hoped for. All of my lessons were extremely well prepared and superbly delivered, using a wide variety of teaching techniques and learning styles. Nathalie is enthusiastic, meticulous and very professional - thanks to her tutelage, I passed all of my professional exams the first time round. Most importantly, Nathalie’s teaching style made French a pleasure to learn and, under her guidance, I progressed rapidly without realising. If you are looking to learn French, whatever your current level and / or language aspirations, then I would recommend Nathalie without any hesitation.
Nathalie is a fabulous teacher who makes lessons exciting by keeping them light and relevant. She always goes the extra mile to connect the technical content to a subject that I find interesting, so that I am always thinking about how to communicate ideas rather than feeling overwhelmed by French grammar. Nathalie's excellent sense of humour and encouragement make classes fun and relaxed. I would recommend her to any aspiring Francophones and multi-linguists!
