Magali - Kingston - French

Methodology

I am an experienced French native teacher at Kingston University and a private tutor for any levels and age. I also offer Intensive French Sessions during all school holidays for pupils who need help catching up / preparing exams.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French at all levels:

- at University (Kingston Language Scheme CEFR A1, A2, B1, B2, French and Culture degree)
- as preparation for a formal exam (GCSE, AS, A2)
- homeschooled children
- adults in private lessons

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am a native French with a BA in English grammar, translation and literature from Université Rennes II, France

- How much do you charge?

My fees are £35 per hour or £17 for 30 minutes.

I meet potential students first which is free of charge.

For groups please contact me for a quote.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Kingston (2 mins walk from train station and opposite bus station) or by Skype. I can sometimes travel to yours (to be arranged).

- When are you available?

My availability change all the time so please contact me to find a suitable day and time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and all levels: adults, students and children.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE (all boards)
IGCSE
AS
A2
University examinations
CEFR A1-A2-B1-B2

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can teach by Skype which offers a very similar experience than a face-2-face

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I strongly believe confidence is key to learning a foreign language. I have a gentle approach with my students but I am also very methodical and I give plenty of tips and advice on learning French. The best part of my job is to adapt to the individual student. Please read some of my current students' testimonials (on the View Full Profile page). Any questions, please ask!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I run three different language clubs (for adults, secondary school students and primary children) with a minimum of 10 classes and over 40 students a week. I also teach at Kingston University. I tailor class content ensuring that I follow the curriculum and that my students get to an excellent level / pass rate.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

yes, I also teach at a school so always have an up-to-date DBS.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My GCSE, AS and A2 students have done really well and I can't wait to hear their results!!! :)

I also teach adults and homeschooled children.

At University, my new group will be preparing the CEFR B1 level.

During my final year of A- Levels, Magali helped support me in developing my French speaking skills. She planned the lessons according to the exam board's requirements and my individual needs. She really improved my confidence and this helped me pass at a very good grade.

I've been seeing Magali for 4 years and she is a truly incredible teacher. I have learnt so much and have also had lots of fun at the same time - a rare combination to find!

Mother of Hassen, age 10

Mrs Churchill has been teaching my 8 years-old boy French for few years. She makes it fun, exciting and with lots of games that keeps him engaged. She has creative ways of linking her lessons with everyday-life situations so it is easier for him to practice and show off his newly learnt vocabulary. He has been picking up conversational phrases and with very good accent. He has also been really involved and looks forward to his lesson every week!

Lessons with Magali prior to sitting my GCSEs allowed myself to gain security in my linguistic skill, as well as the results I could get.
Not only has my grammar, vocabulary and accent improved, but my understanding of the Francophone communities around the world. You couldn't find a better tutor for a well rounded education in the French language.

When I first met Magali, I hadn't studied French for over 30 yrs but she assured me “You remember more than you realise.” As well as being an excellent teacher with a real talent for helping you understand, Magali is happy for you to work at your own pace and is endlessly patient (she had to be with a student as poor as me). With Magali's help and encouragement I saw a dramatic improvement in both my French and my confidence to use it. Did I also mention she's a lovely person? Merci beaucoup

Magali supported both my sons in preparation for their respective GCSE and AS exams. She always conducted herself with the utmost professionalism and was a pleasure to work with. Both boys found her easy to talk to and felt very comfortable experimenting with their French in her presence. She always managed their sessions with a relaxed but focussed approach and they both found these increased their confidence tremendously which no doubt assisted in their success. I highly recommend Magali.

My lessons with Magali are really enjoyable and I've already learnt a lot. She is extremely patient and encouraging as a teacher, which is great for my confidence. The lessons are varied, interesting and well structured and personalised towards my needs.
