I have experience in teaching French and Spanish to students from years 7 up to 11 and tutoring French learners from ages 10 up to 25. As a native speaker, I am comfortable and confident about tutoring people of all ages and levels of experience.
I like to make learning fun, language learning can be really hard!
It's important that I find out about a learner's specific interests and hobbies, and then implement these into lessons to further develop engagement and guarantee that progress is made.
If it's speaking you want to practise, our lessons can be purely conversational, I'm also happy to create resources and tasks depending on what you want to learn. I can train you up on a specific theme if you are studying for something
in particular: maybe you're interested in learning about the cuisine in Spanish-speaking countries? Perhaps you're off to a France and want to learn some slang and Verlan? We can definitely do that too!
Through training as a language teacher, I know that it's important to constantly develop a learner's reading, listening, writing and speaking skills. The latter is one of the trickiest skills to manage but possibly the most important, especially if you are traveling to a country where the language is spoken- you want to be able to speak to the locals, order food, buy a ticket for the bus...! Luckily, speaking can be constantly assessed and improved through tutoring, making it one of the best ways to improve one's fluency in a language.
Born in London into a trilingual family, I was raised speaking French and attended the French lycée before moving to the South of France where I lived for over 6 years. Throughout secondary school, I studied Spanish and fell in love with languages and learning about different cultures- I have been speaking Spanish for over 10 years. I am now a fully qualified secondary French and Spanish teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Rates may vary for A-levels and university students.
I offer a discount for group tuition.
If the lesson is cancelled less than 24hrs before the lesson start time, only a 50% refund will be provided, thank you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Phoebe is an amazing, kind, super-patient and highly creative teacher who always makes the lessons so fun. I have learned so much from her. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Phoebe is a dynamic young language teacher who has native fluency in French. She was lycée educated and has also lived in France, giving her a deep knowledge of French lifestyle and culture.
She is original and inventive in her teaching, tailoring her lessons to suit each individual: she has a bright and friendly personality, as well as a sense of humour.
I strongly recommend Phoebe to French language students of any age.
Phoebe is such a friendly and helpful teacher, with the best communication skills! She is so passionate about her subject that it makes you want to learn more, and always plans her lessons to be engaging.
Phoebe has been teaching French to our 10 year old daughter Florence for a couple of months now and I have to say that In that time it's remarkable what Florence has learned. She now has a good general understanding of the language but what really works is that Phoebe structures the lessons to suit Florence's interests making the lessons a lot of fun and something Florence looks forward to every week. We highly recommend her.
Phoebe is an excellent teacher. She is currently tutoring me in french. Phoebe discussed with me, and identified, the best way for me to learn based on my ability and goals. Phoebe plans her lessons accordingly so they are full and exciting for the individual student. She makes sure but to check in with me and gives clear explanations so that the classes aren’t too fast paced! Phoebe is a warm teacher who is very organised with a great attention to detail.
I’ve known Phoebe since her teenage years!
She is an enthusiastic, thoughtful and multi talented young woman.
I have always been impressed with her language skills, her interest in travel, the arts and other cultures.
