« I have been doing classes with Ffion for a few months. Coming from a level of 0 french, I have felt that Ffion has been the key to the progress I have made. She listened to my experience with learning other languages, and devised a programme which suited my experience, level, ability, and my schedule. Her classes were really enjoyable, and we were able to speak about the things I was interested in. It really helped build my confidence and vocabulary. On top of that, she is a really warm and helpful teacher, and I really cannot recommend her enough as a teacher. 10/10 would recommend!!! »

Masters graduate (MPhil) with a double BA (Hons) offering essay writing, dissertation composition and research tutoring up to postgraduate level.

Methodology

I tailor my teaching method to each individual student. I was trained by world experts through my undergraduate and Masters degrees in research skills and have written two research dissertations (12,000 words and 20,000 words) for Classics. My classes are nuanced and designed for each student and their individual needs, working to target their weaknesses by using their strengths. Extra classes can be tiring and I aim to make lessons as engaging as possible.

Experience

I am a Masters graduate in Classics (MPhil) with a BA in French Language and Literature and Classics, graduating with honours. I recieved a distinction for my 20,000 word Master's research thesis. I lived in Bordeaux, studying at the Université Bordeaux Montaigne. Consequently, I studied under the French academic academy and have experience of the French discipline. I also have extensive training in research and dissertation composition. Both my master's and BA focused on a wide range of topics, including archaeology, modern and ancient literature and history. I have been tutoring for two years. I have a 120 hours TEFL qualification.
