Hi! Salut! My name is Sam, I will be your new personal tutor of French! I am a successful student of many languages, but I wasn't always this way and understand what it is like to struggle with French. I am very patient and can show you how I became confident at conversing in this language. If you are here to merely pass your GCSE French, let's see if we can get you an 'A' instead! And if you are studying on your own, let's give you a great passion for French and success on the road towards fluency! I am willing to teach students of GCSE qualification or lower, or beginners/intermediates in general. Contact me :)
I don't usually charge for travel costs, however this does depend on your distance which we can discuss soon. I also give you your first lesson free (or discounted depending on your distance). If you want a webcam lesson your first is also free and any time that is disrupted due to bad connection will be taken into account and added on.
I am new to this site but have given many lessons before to fellow students and adults, though not officially yet, as I have only recently progressed to 6th Form College. Not only do I take grades very seriously, but I realise the key to learning is not about a letter on a page, it's not about text books or mindless memorisation. I prefer to spend an equal amount of time coming to terms with the culture, travelling and becoming involved with genuine conversation.

I am passionate about humanity on an international scale in its many forms, modern foreign languages and foreign cultures being two of my many interests. Not only can I converse in multiple languages, but I can connect to all different types of people, listen to them, learn from them and help them. My favourite language, and the one I have most advanced in is French. I love teaching French as I believe communication is crucial if we are to deliver our increasingly globalised world into a project we as a species can be proud of. I am driven by the prospect of not merely telling but teaching and delivering my knowledge to others transparently and personally, and therefore I have developed skills whereby I am able to know how to interest and inspire different types of people. As well as being able to work with people in such a positive way I am also able to work independently and teach myself new concepts very efficiently and quickly.
