About the lesson
It always starts simply. The student must understand the core concepts before we can go any further. I don't aim high with my students immediately. I like to make sure that their knowledge is well-grounded before I start talking. Otherwise, there is a possibility that they will have absolutely no idea what I am talking about. I believe that you should "compare yourself to who you were yesterday and not who someone else is today". Taking small incremental steps on the way to achieving much larger goals just makes sense in my eyes. We have all had different experiences and learn at different paces and in different ways.

I am a student at the University of Leeds. I am currently studying Chinese (Mandarin) and Business. I moved to France when I was 5. I speak French and English fluently. I also speak a bit of Spanish and Mandarin. In the past, I have tutored French and Maths from home (in my kitchen).
Perfect! Oliver is an excellent, patient and fun teacher. His lessons are always varied and enjoyable and I have learnt a lot with him so far. Would highly recommend!
Perfect! Oliver's lessons are engaging, clear and layered to help me build on the things I've learnt previously. He is very patient and gentle when things are difficult and his lessons are always enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone, any age, any level. X
Perfect! Oliver provides friendly, informative, well planned lessons. I come away secure and confident in the knowledge that I have learned new French language points, vocabulary, phrases and grammar. I am always looking forward to the next lesson. Thank you Oliver.
- Oliver's response : Our lessons have been going very well so far. Despite not learning any French since GCSE, Alistair's French is impressive. I am sure that Alistair's French can still advance leaps and bounds. I hope to continue learning together for a while to come.
Perfect! Very personable and able to flex his style. Would highly recommend!
- Oliver's response : Energetic and fun student. I am excited to pursue future lessons.

Oliver is great guy. Always see's the best in everybody and does his absolute best to help them achieve their goals. He has the perfect balance of friendliness and professionalism and his dedication to completing a task is unprecedented. It'd be hard to find an individual who could top Oliver as your tutor.
Very knowledgeable, patient and great at explaining the little details that can sometimes be difficult. I would highly recommend lessons with Oliver to anyone looking to improve their French.
I have known Oliver for just under 2 years through my studies at the University of Leeds. He is a diligent and proactive person who clearly has a passion for helping other people succeed. This is especially true when it comes to helping others with French. I would definitely recommend Oliver because of his patience and ability to explain difficult concepts in an engaging and non-patronising way.
