I am a native French speaker and a freelance teacher and translator. I have a Licence ès Lettres (French and Classics) from the Sorbonne, and an Msc and PhD in Classics from the University of Edinburgh. I also offer lessons over Skype (or other platforms if preferred), and I've been working with students in the Highlands, the US, Qatar, England, and Ireland.
I am very adaptable, and I have a strong preference for cocreating the lessons with my students, depending on their specific level and goals. Conversational classes for students who need to improve are the best, and the topic can be up to the student or provided by me based on a first conversation together.
My teaching method is based on building self-confidence. Students know more than they think and can all learn french! My first challenge is to give them the chance to see their skills and from there, learning french will become way easier. I am not going to lie to you.
I am a French native speaker studying a master in Translating at Heriot-Watt university. I offer lessons tailored to the student's needs.

A fun and lively French masters student living in Edinburgh, I am happy to provide teaching at all levels on the scale, lesson plan will then depend on the level of the individual and their desires.
Apprendre la langue de Molière doit être une passion. elle commence par la maitrise de mots simples tels que bonjour, bonsoir, merci et ne s’achève jamais. Car en tant que langue vivante, la pratique journalière à travers des conversations et les lectures permet d'apprendre, de découvrir et développer des secteurs d'utilisation de cette langue.
My teaching method is primarily centred around beginner to intermediate level learners. My approach to conveying knowledge is not only based on theoretical frameworks, but mostly on practice. This is due to the fact that I believe in the idea that learning a language is better done through various activities, rather then pure lessons with nothing practical backing them.
My teaching method varies according to each pupil's ability. If the pupil feels languages is not their strongest area, I help them achieve their desired grade by compiling a series of cheat sheets with them, summarising the essentials.
I have been studying French since the age of 7, and Italian since starting University in Edinburgh. Having completed my degree this year, I am now fluent in both languges, recieving top marks throughout my university experience.
I follow the Common European Framework of References for Languages, in that I think it necessary to evaluate the level of the student and the communicative needs associated with it. Any first lesson I give will begin with a test meant to determine your level and a discussion about your linguistics needs, so that I may devise a lesson plan tailored to you.
I can teach basics of the language or a more precise vocabulary according to your expectations. As it is my native language, I can teach you the basic vocabulary. I am patient with my students, I have already taught in France with students of all levels.
My teaching method is to based heavily on practicing. May it be orally or writtenly, the best way to progress is to be exposed a lot (never enough) to verbal communication and written communication.
I mostly give lessons to children who want to improve or discover French. My language can be a hard one to understand so I try to explain it with tips that would make you remember the subtilities. I am very patient but still, expect the student to work with me and do his/her part of the job.
I focus on the positives to give students a boost and a real appetite for learning. I am very positive but firm when I need to be! I love psychology, languages and that's why these areas have been the primary focus of my life-long University studies. Because I see the beauty of learning, I am able to share this passion with students.
As a French student I first discovered Scotland during my Erasmus year and quickly fell in love with this beautiful country and its lovely people, which is why I decided to come back here now that I have completed my studies in France.
I like to use varied topics and resources in order to give my tutees a broad knowledge of the language and so they can understand it both spoken and read, as well as speak it and write it. This depends on the student's goals, but all these skills are useful when learning languages.
I base my classes on the needs of my "student"; I used to have very different people in front of me and I always want to specialise my lessons from what they need (comprehension, writing, vocab, grammar, culture..).
My teaching philosophy is the necessity to adapt to each student. By assessing the strengths and weaknesses of my tutees/students I try to develop their skills in certain areas. In French, the most important to me is first to have a very strong base in grammar, and then to constantly practice speaking.
I approach French by focusing on the two main, but different, elements: language and literature. Within language I focus on grammar, as well as oral competence and comprehension. For these classes I like to engage with the student and develop activities pertaining to the relevant grammar post or oral topic for that lesson.
During my studies I worked as animator in a leisure center and I was aupair in London for a summer. As a result, I know how to work with children. For the older ones, I do according to the centers of interest and the goal.
My approach is very much based on the needs of the client(s). I am More focused on finding common ground as to the pupil(s)' goals and learning outcomes. From there, I then work in cooperation with the individual(s) to attain this goal.
My teaching is based on modern techniques which encourages active learning, self-evaluation and creativity. I am collaborator rather than instructor. Teaching includes DELF lessons.
My strong tutoring experience allows me to clearly identify my students' needs and capabilities. My vision of teaching is founded on practicing, so I'll try to speak French as much as possible during the lessons. I also believe that a introduction to French culture is really necessary to make this teaching as concrete as possible.
