I am a french native, from Paris and I currently work as an aerospace engineer in Sheffield. I have now started to tutor french students. I believe that being tutored by a french native will benefit the students greatly.
The teaching method will depend on the students and on the requirements. I am also open to suggestions. Each student will have different lessons depending on their levels and interests.
As a tutor, I am very patient, friendly and passionate about the french language. French is a difficult language, even for french people!
I currently have 3 students of different levels (A1/A2 and B2). I have been translating (freelance) for the past 6 years.
The first step is to understand the current level of the student. The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) is a good indication for this.
As a french native I can help greatly with pronunciation and accent reduction. I can also teach french expressions or slang!
I also have the BAFA (brevet d'aptitude aux fonctions d'animateur) which is the equivalent of a youth work diploma.

Perfect! My boyfriend and I are really enjoying our lessons with Simon. He is very patient and always well prepared for our lessons, and he makes learning French fun and interesting. We would definitely recommend Simon!
As part of a complex project, Simon was able to quickly measure the difficulty and thanks to his excellent interpersonal skills, find the approach adapted to the variety of stakeholders. In addition, Simon has demonstrated his investment in the project. I therefore recommend Simon for activities where human relations are of great importance.
Simon is a very pedagogical person, and always takes time to explain blocking points and obstacles. He is very professional, and attentive. I highly recommend him.
