Learn French with a native speaker. The lessons are fun, friendly and stress-free, from beginners to advanced, adults and children. I am located in Whitley Bay.

Methodology

Want to learn how to speak French and immerse yourself without having to go abroad? You can achieve your professional and personal learning objectives from the comfort of your home.
To progress in your French learning, it’s important to practice speaking with a qualified teacher on regular basis. Even just once a week will help you to make real progress in French. I provide my students with an ideal learning experience. I will constantly monitor your progress and support you so that you can realize your learning objectives.
Whether you want to progress quickly, to learn specialized French for work or study or just to have fun, together, we can choose a program that is most suited to you. Please feel free to contact me for more information.

Background

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.
