French (native) tutor with over 20 years experience gives lessons in Nottingham.

Methodology

My lessons are student-centered and I will discuss your needs and requirements prior to any lesson. I use a variety of teaching resources, from interactive speaking activities to more traditional exercises. I aim to be as flexible as possible in course planning and will tailor my methodology and materials to your needs. I also include a cultural dimension to my lessons as I believe language and culture cannot be dissociated.
I am patient, friendly and will be delighted to help you reach a very good standard of French.

Experience

I am a fully qualified teacher of French with 20 years experience including:
- teaching at various local colleges to 16-19 year-old students (GCSE, IB and A-Level) and adults (all levels)
- teaching undergraduates at both Nottingham universities
- one-to- one and small group classes for adults.
- grammar revision, conversation, listening, reading and writing.
I am patient, friendly and will be delighted to help you reach a very good standard of French.
