I give lessons to learners of all ages (children, teenagers, adults) and all levels. My lessons are tailored to the student's goals, needs and interests. Whether you need help passing GCSE French, want to learn enough for a holiday in France, need to develop your vocabulary or want to get to grips with French grammar, I can help you achieve your targets. I set homework after each lesson to provide further practice of what we cover in the lesson. It's up to you if you want to do it or not! - the more work you put in, the quicker you will progress! I use a variety of methods and materials. I always make sure the student talks more than the teacher! I give opportunities for more controlled practice where you will be corrected on your errors. I also give time for you to develop your fluency skills where you can speak without interruption (and get feedback and correction after you have finished!). Games are a favourite of mine, whatever your level and age! They're a good way to put into practice new structures or vocabulary you've learned but in a more fun and relaxed way! If you are preparing for an exam then we can work from that particular curriculum.
I've taught ESOL & EFL for 15 years. I loved seeing lower level students grow in confidence and progress in their English speaking.
My husband and I spent the last 5 years living and working in Lille, France. I worked for a language school (Berlitz) for 18 months, and then spent the next 3 and a half years building up my business, teaching English to French people (and some other nationalities too!). I taught children aged 3 - 18, giving lessons in the family home. I taught in a local primary school 2 afternoons per week, children aged 6-7. I also continued teaching adults. I enjoyed imparting a love of learning languages to both young children and retired people!
I have a facebook page with tips and links to other websites for learning English. Here is one of the reviews which was posted to my page (translated from French into English!)
"Joy is very attentive to the needs of her clients... she adapts to the age and level of her client. For my 8 year old daughter she used visuals, objects and a fun way of teaching which my daughter loved! " (Mathilde)
I am confident that with my teaching experience and my knowledge of the French language (I speak it fluently), I can make the transition from teaching English to teaching French. I enjoyed helping my 14 year old niece prepare for several end of term French exams, in which she scored almost 100%.
