Native-like French speaker who remembers how hard learning French is tutors in London

Methodology

I try to make my lessons fun and enjoyable. For formal classes I follow the Alter Ego program, adding content whenever needed. For informal lessons I rely as much as possible on authentic videos and documents, and make the students talk and improvise. We read real menus, watch bits of real documentaries, listen to real presidential speeches or watch children talking about art, all depending on my students interests and their goals. Learning a language should be natural, so I share bits of my life and opinions, and encourage the students to do the same.

If you are going to France soon and want to quickly learn a bit of French, I am the tutor for you! :) I know exactly how it is to arrive in France speaking little French, and which are the expressions that will confuse you.

Background

I am a scientist and have studied for ten years in France. I speak with native-like fluency and have tutored French for the last year, while i lived in Chile. I've helped 10-15 year old children follow the rhythm of their school program, and young adults to get the basic knowledge necessary for a student exchange in France. I was very lucky to work with very motivated students, one of the going from zero to A2 level in three months.

I am in close contact with Menka as well as many of her former students who all agree that she is a motivated, dedicated, and remarkably passionate teacher. Having lived in France for over a decade, she offers her French students the best of both worlds: a vast knowledge of the grammar and structure of the French language and a hands-on experience allowing them to easily and rapidly learn conversational French. As she was always passionate about teaching, during her studies in physics she tutored many students, all of whom would be more than happy to recommend her as a tutor! It should be noted that she taught both in English and in French, to students of different levels, including high school students and university undergrads, and even primary school pupils. She initially helped me with preparing my high school final exam in physics, and then over the years she prepared me for many French exams and essays. I wholeheartedly recommend Menka to anyone.
