« 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 French, Classics and Latin tutoring up to university level.

Methodology

I tailor my teaching method to each individual student. My extensive experience of language learning in several contexts (classroom, intensive and immersive) lends itself to a bespoke learning experience in all subjects. 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 and fun as possible using games, interactive media and spoken resources.

Experience

I am a Masters graduate in Classics (MPhil) with a BA in French Language and Literature and Classics, graduating with honours. I lived in Bordeaux, studying at the Université Bordeaux Montaigne. I also have extensive training in research, dissertation composition and fluency coaching. I have been tutoring for two years. I have a 120 hours TEFL qualification and score a C1.2 on the CEFR scale in French personally attested by the French consul in Scotland.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £70
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £135

Details

My rates will not vary according to the level or needs of the student. I also provide homework and will correct outside of the hour lesson as part of the fee. This means there is more time in the hour to cover materials.
