London efficient and patient French tutor, 20 years'experience in the City, MOD, NGOs, Medical & Media.

Methodology

My method is tailor-made. I believe everyone is unique and is sensitive to different methods. I usually get a sense of my student after one or 2 lessons and tailor as we go. I need to know the goal of the person before we start. I mix vocabulary, grammar knowledge, article/dialogue comprehension and speaking.

I also recommend a lot of self-study material so my students have a lot to work from outside our lessons.

Background

I'm a French qualified and native tutor. I have an MA in translation and have been a teacher (1999-2004) and translator over the years. I have also founded my own language agency 12 years ago. I studied many many languages in France during my school days - English, German, Spanish, Latin, Italian - and as an adult - Albanian, Modern Greek, Japanese - hence, I have a good idea of what students go through when learning languages and understand the frustrations and difficulties.

As promised, a quick note to say how impressed we were with the help you gave our son in preparing for his French oral GCSE. You were able to come to give a lesson at very short notice (just a couple of days) and were always very punctual for lessons. Our son found you gave him a lot of confidence in preparing for his oral and your advice was very clear. I would thoroughly recommend your lessons".

I have been working with Sophie on my French language skills for 4 years with excellent results. Sophie has a strong focus on the person's individual skills and style; she is working with great enthusiasm and motivation.

Without a doubt, Sophie's language teaching skills are on a very high level and I can certainly recommend working with her.

We employed Sophie to help our son to gain confidence with his oral French for his IGCSEs. He really enjoyed the lessons and she helped him enormously, not only with his speaking but in the written work as well. He achieved an A* grade which we were all delighted with."

I know he would not have achieved his A* without your help - so thank you once again.

Dear Sophie, I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that Ali got an A* in all his GCSEs. Thank you very much for your help with his French. I'll pass on your details to any other parent who is looking for a French tutor.'

Sophie provided me with one-to-one French language tuition to help me improve my communication and performance at board meeting in Paris. Throughout the sessions, Sophie was engaging, professional and just importantly she was good fun to work with. I subsequently engaged Sophie to provide the same service for one of my team with equally impressive results. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
