Native female French engineering student offering French lessons for every level in Central London

Methodology

I always start with the lesson, trying to get to know what the kid actually does know or remind about his lesson, identify weak points as well as good points, and then I slightly lead the kid to improve his weaknesses by practicing some exercises thanks to either oral or written exercises. I approach each topic with a lot of examples, so kids will remember the rules more easily. Whereas learning French is not easy so I am very creative in order to make the children love that language.

Background

I am a Master Chemical Engineering student at UCL for the full year. I am French and speak fluently English as well.
I have been teaching Maths, Physics, and Chemistry for the past 3 years to students aged from 14 to 18. I have also been a tutor for some 12-year-old kids helping them with their French lessons and teaching vocabulary, grammar, and conjugation.
