Oxford French graduate offers language and vocabulary tuition online or in Cardiff

Methodology

Bonjour! I graduated from Oxford in 2016 with a First-class degree in French & Linguistics, and am willing and eager to offer help to students of French from school age up to and including undergraduate level; I am also able to tutor students ab initio, introducing them to a language they've never studied before. Depending on individual requirements, I can drill grammar from the present tense of avoir to the imperfect subjunctive of zézayer, brush up basic vocabulary and structures, or simply offer an attentive ear for informal conversation with gentle correction.

Background

I graduated from Keble College, Oxford, in 2016 with First-class honours in French & Linguistics, and then completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Education the next year, training in two state comprehensive schools in Oxfordshire before teaching for a term at Repton, a public school in Derbyshire. As I undertake a part-time Master's degree in Translation Studies, I look forward to applying this experience to the one-on-one teaching environment I have long sought, and to continuing to open up the beauties of the French language.

I met George when he was teaching in my school and would have loved him to teach my own children! His instinct for translation, linguistic skills and sense of humour make him a Superprof without the shadow of a doubt. Sophie, Head of French.

Max

French is to George what the electric guitar was to Hendrix. His ability to pick out the most elegant notes of the language -
in both debate and written prose - so effortlessly was the source of some envy for his Oxford peers.

Contrary to Hendrix, however, George's command of French is allied with consummate professionalism and rigour. Any student could rest assured that no obscure syntactical stone would be left unturned; with George as your drill sergeant you will make a mockery of any upcoming exam.

All this with a gentle, respectful manner and a passion for imparting knowledge! I struggle to see how other tutors could compete. Good luck!

George is an incredibly knowledgeable person with an amazing breadth and depth of understanding about French language and culture. He's a very understanding teacher who will open your eyes to elements of French culture and literature that you might never have considered. Highly recommend!
