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

- 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!
- 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.
Issy, A level and GCSE student:
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!
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!
