Highly experienced classroom teacher in Leeds offering expert tuition to all levels

Methodology

I offer tailored sessions to school pupils wishing to build their confidence and improve their performance in specific areas. I have a huge store of materials, including many interactive materials and music-based activities as well as more traditional methods. As I currently teach in an outstanding secondary school I am able to provide expert guidance in improving exam performance.
For adults I offer relaxed sessions such as conversation classes to keep French fluent and to explore French culture, music, and film; or simple refresher sessions for those who would like to brush up their French for a holiday or for work.

Experience

Having had a love of French from very early on in life, I studied French at University and worked in Paris for two years after my degree. I then worked in a publishing company in London for another two years before taking a teaching qualification in order to share my love of the French language and culture.
I have since been working at St Aidan’s High School in Harrogate for over 25 years, working with pupils of all ages and abilities. I also have experience working with primary school children in a French club that I ran at my local primary school.
I am particularly keen to work with adults who would like to learn French for pleasure, perhaps for holiday use or for love of the language and the culture. I can offer one-to-one, couples or group sessions for adults.
I have many years’ experience teaching GCSE French and am familiar with the new exam specifications and how to help pupils improve their grade. I work with pupils of all ages and abilities and currently teach 3 GCSE groups, ranging from most able to weakest.
I also teach and tutor KS3 pupils. I can help those who are struggling with French as I can build a pupil’s confidence with fun activities and interactive materials.
I have also taught A level pupils for several years and can provide support for A level students looking for grammar consolidation, essay practice or oral work.

EMPLOYMENT
1993 – present
Teacher of French and Business Studies at St Aidan’s C of E High School, Harrogate.
After training to teach French and English, I went on to teach French to pupils of all ages and abilities in this outstanding school. I also taught GCSE and Vocational Business Studies (National Diploma, GNVQ) for many years. During a colleague’s maternity leave, I worked for a term as Head of Business Studies.
As a languages teacher I have now taught several different GCSE and A level courses, including the current GCSE specification. I have run several visits to France including exchanges and residential visits. I worked for a year as a teacher trainer on the Graduate Teaching Scheme.
I have had professional development training from exam boards as well as experts in behavioural management, in creativity and spontaneity in the classroom and many other educational fields.
I have also worked as a French tutor and have run a French club at lunchtimes at a local primary school.

1989-1991 Publicity Assistant, Bloomsbury Publishing, Soho Square, London
Responsibilities included organising book launches, administering mail-shots of press releases, contacting media workers in order to secure publicity for newly published books, organising book signings and other author-based events in order to promote sales.

1988-1989 Bilingual Legal Secretary, Freshfields, Paris
This position, involving secretarial, administrative and translation duties in an international commercial law company, enabled me to continue to improve my language skills as well as gaining valuable IT skills.

1986-1987 University work placement at NGO La Fédération Mondiale des Villes Jumelées in Paris
Year-long placement living and working in France, an excellent opportunity to become fully fluent in the language.
I was involved in setting up international town twinnings, often between towns in France and those in developing countries. I worked on administrative tasks in the Paris office and translated the organisation’s newsletter into English. I took on other translation work whilst there. I helped to organise and participated in a large conference in Grenoble for representatives from member towns.
