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.
Hi there! My name is Clement, I originally come from Brittany (France) and I'm now settled in Edinburgh. If you're looking to improve your french or to start from scratch i can help you with both spoken and written language.
My teaching method is simple, there is always a vocabulary part, a grammar part and a nicer part (geography, culture, sports...), what we learn in one session is always evaluated in the next one (more exercises, tests) I base my classes on patience, learning new things might be difficult sometimes and that's why it is important for me that the things we see in class are understood.
By identifying your specific needs and interests, and adjusting to your age (from 5 to 99). A typical lesson could be with me bringing something French—a song, a croissant, a film, a cheese, or any object—to start a conversation in French with a vocabulary list, followed by a writing exercise on the topic of the day.
As an experienced language teacher, I adapt my lessons to my students' particular needs! For example, if a student needs to strengthen their oral skills, the focus would be on raising the student's confidence in speaking through fun and lighthearted conversational exercises.
As a tutor I aim to tailor lessons to fit your needs and knowledge gaps. I think it is important for my student to tell me what areas (grammar, conversational practice etc.
As a french native speaker, I will focus on improving your language skills and your vocabulary. We will focus on syntax, writing skills, pronunciation and oral.
It will depend on the level and the student but generally, I can give online tuition or I can commute to the student's house. The materials will depend on the syllabus and will be based on reference textbooks. Moreover, I will try to give relevant exposure to the language.
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 technique is based on the person. Because we don't all learn the same way and therefore you can't expect everybody to learn as fast or as easily for the same techniques. My way of doing it is to focus on what YOU like to make it more vivid in your memory.
I am happy to give classes up to degree level. As I have recently completed my degree myself, I have access to and knowledge of lots of different teaching materials. Rather than developing a strict teaching method or lesson plan, I think it is more beneficial to discuss with the student first and see what they think would best help 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.
As a keen, motivated and outgoing student at the University of Edinburgh where I study French and Spanish, I would value the opportunity to share my passion of languages with people. Having received straight As from National 5 to Advanced Higher and Excellence Awards for my hard work and dedication to both subjects, I am an extremely motivated person.
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 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 adapt my lessons to the needs of my pupils, whether they be beginners or at an advanced level, and I try to make each lesson as lively as possible. Learning languages should never be a drudgery and enjoying oneself only makes one progress faster.
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.

I can give lessons for any level, from A0 to C2. I'll start most of the time with a sentence in french and its translation. Studying step by step every word, its pronounciation, meaning and how to use it. Focusing my teaching on sentences from the day to day life you'll be able in no time to talk about what interests you the most.
I want to give the student a great deal of freedom. French is much more relaxing and enjoyable. If give them open ended exercises which means they can express themselves and feel less pressure in a subject where students often feel nervous.
