In the context of private tuition, I ensure I base my resources on the requirements of my student. I try and cater to their interests and objectives, using or designing resources (Eg. recording audio files, designing texts etc). This is also reflected in out-of-class material. Wherever possible, I aim to practise listening, reading, writing and speaking over the course of any session, ensuring all main key skills are addressed and improve over time.
I am a native French tutor with 9 years of teaching experience in a UK university. I have taught over 500 students at all levels (from beginner to advanced), in groups ranging from 2 to 30 students, and also have several years of experience of one-on-one private tuition. I am a patient, commited teacher and my methods are engaging and tailored to my students' needs.
These are tariffs for one-on-one private tuition. Tariffs would need to be discussed in the case of groups.
