I like to tailor my lessons to the needs of the student. I think that tutoring is a great way to expose the student to French speaking and this should definitely be taken advantage of, which is why a class should almost be 100% talking French only.
I work mostly on the basis of the textbooks used by Alliance Française for my working documents. I can give more or less exercises to practice at home depending on whether the student has more or less time to practice. These exercises can be based on written text or based on audio documents.
Most of all, I like to keep a friendly environment in all my classes to make it an enjoyable moment for both the student and I.
Currently undertaking the Alliance Française course to get the full diploma as a French teacher, as a foreign language, I have moved recently from the French Alps to London in order to teach French.
I have lived abroad many times during my studies (I originally have a background in Public International Law) such as Scotland, the Netherlands, New York. During these, I had the chance to give private French lessons on the side of my studies.
However, I really realized how important it could be to spread the knowledge of French during my experience at the United Nations in New York City, seeing how it remains a very lively language nowadays, despite the predominance of English.
I like to teach adults as much as children or young adults. I am very flexible when it comes to timetable, I will try to suit you as much as possible. I am also flexible regarding your location as long as it is in Zone 2 of the Tube.
I am friendly, patient, and organised, and will try to make my teaching the most tailored to your needs.

Martin was recommended to me by an other french student.
Martin is extremely patient.
I recommend Martin because you will gain knowledge of the french language
I am happy today to recommend Martin Costaz, with whom I have taken French classes while we were both living in New York City back in fall 2016. I have taken with him between 20 and 30 hours that helped me improve sensibly my French.
Martin was a very friendly, dedicated and motivated teacher. He has always made everything clear to me, and entirely tailored his classes to my needs.
He was also flexible on the dates and locations in which he would give me the lessons, making it easy for me to make these fit with my daily work.
I would definitely recommend Martin to anyone who wants to learn French with a real native speaker, which is always a big plus when learning a language.
I am very happy that I have met Martin for my first French lessons. He was nice and patient and I think that I really started to improve with his help.
