I was born and raised in the South of France, and has been teaching French for more than 14 years. I strongly believe language learning is essentially fun, or should be, if it is done naturally. "You learn better by having fun", that is my motto.
I have studied in France & England. I have created my own language center when I was in South Africa with the idea to create an ideal environment for students using a dynamic and personalized immersion method of teaching French. This method is based on the positive experiences I had as a student and foreigner living abroad. But, I also understand language learning can be difficult, frustrating, and disappointing at times.
After 6 years in South Africa, I returned to the UK where I had previously stayed for 8 years.
Rates depend on student's level. Additional £10 can be added to the hourly rate.
