Fully qualified French teacher and native speaker offering online coaching or face-to-face class at my home office in Dublin 1, Ireland

Methodology

Rather than simply lecturing to a class or individual, I strive to cultivate an interactive environment in which students can express themselves while learning to engage with auditory, visual and kinaesthetic activities. I emphasize critical thinking and the need to consider Music and French within their social, historical and intellectual contexts. I feel it is my responsibility to encourage and challenge students to work up to their potential, in hopes that their experiences in my classes will teach them far more than is contained in the Music and French curricula.

Experience

I have fifteen years of experience in the teaching profession. I have taught Music and French at both Junior and Senior Cycles. I am a honours graduate of Trinity College Dublin in Education and I also have a master in Music Performance from the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Therefore I have a good knowledge of the expectations, past papers, marking system and syllabus of the Junior Certificate and the Leaving Certificate at both ordinary and higher levels. Additionally I am a music performer, music examiner, and teacher of saxophone, clarinet and piano.
