Native French Speaker, Qualified and Experienced teacher offering French & English classes in Cambridge

Methodology

I am specialised in teaching adults from various backgrounds: whether you are a university student who wants better grades next semester, a professional dealing with a French/English clientele, a retired person willing to travel to a French or English speaking country or if you just want to discover another culture or impress a loved one, then you will be the perfect student for me!

If you are serious about learning French or English, then I will speak 95% - when not 100% - of the time in your target language. For more casual learning, I will include some bits in English or French (depending on your native language) for your own comfort but learning a language by using it as much as possible is always the best option.

Lesson structures will depend on your goal and everything will be tailored to your needs: pace, difficulty, English/French inclusion, themes, time and duration of lessons, homework... We will discuss everything together so you feel happy and confident in another language!

However, when it comes to teaching and studying, I am quite serious and I like my students to be the same. No one can do the work apart from yourself; I can't learn the vocabulary for you, I can't practice pronunciation in your place and I can't do your homework. I will give you the necessary tools to reach your goals but in the end, you will be the one reaching them - not me :)

Perfect! Mélody is an absolutely brilliant tutor! I've been learning French with her for a month and I'm really impressed with the progress. She took into account my reason for learning French and my objectives and I'm really confident I will be able to achieve it. Couldn't recommend her more!

Mélody's response

Merci pour cette "review" Andrzej! You have improved a lot these past weeks due to your strong commitment and your efforts studying French. Let's take you to Canada ;)
