Languages student offering native French language classes for motivated students in Leeds.

Methodology

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.

Experience

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).

EXPERIENCE
MATHS TUTOR • AT HOME • 2018/2019

WAITER/CLEANER• 4*HOTEL• 2018

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.

Frederick

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.

O
Oliver

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.
