Professional and experienced qualified French native teacher in Bristol. All levels from 7 yo.

Methodology

I teach all ages from 7 years old and all levels from complete beginners to advanced learners. Having taught both in secondary schools in France and in the UK I am specialized in exams preparation such as GCSE, A-level, Baccalaureat, IB, Delf or Dalf and I am up-to-date with the current exams boards, especially with the new GCSE and A-levels.

I am available, Monday to Friday most of the day and mainly after school and in the evenings. Lessons at the weekend are possible on request. Lessons are usually near mine in Fishponds or in Clifton.
I am proud of providing a friendly and safe environment so I am DBS checked.
I offer one-to-one, small groups up to 8, and in-company lessons, as well as, intensive exams and interview preparations. Groups can be organised depending availability with a maximum of 8 people per group of level to ensure efficiency. Why do I offer groups ? Because they are a great way to interact with other students, to build confidence, and to practice in a friendly still challenging environment and they are great to have fun!

The lessons are based on your needs and are tailored especially for you. They cover all aspects of language, included colloquial idioms. I always make sure to structure the lessons around the 4 language skills: reading, speaking, writing and listening and I incorporate grammar point, speaking practice, exercices and games. The lessons are based on the Common European Framework of reference for languages (A1to C2) to provide a guideline for your learning. For students with previous knowledge, lessons are built around your existing knowledge in order to take you to the next level. Whatever the level you start from, I will give you homeworks and lessons to learn and practice in between lessons to embed the contents from the previous lessons and to be ready for the next one.

I am eager about teaching French and I am convinced that my passion will benefit your learning. I am a friendly and open-minded teacher and I believe it's always a good time to learn a new language. You are never too old, too rusty or too slow to learn! In my opinion, languages can be taught in a fun and efficient way being based on real-life situations with a particular focus on communication skills. The aim is to improve your knowledge of the French language to be able to take part in conversation in French and to feel at ease with it whatever your level. In order to achieve those goals, I use a well-structured scheme of work following a step-by-step way of learning the French language. Thanks to my studies and experience, I am able to explain the grammar and the nuances of the language in a way which is easily understandable whilst never giving up on quality. I give a particular attention to accuracy and details and I always push my students to go an extra mile in their learning journey.
For the last 4 years, I have taught French to British, American, Spanish and Panamean children for example, as well as bilingual children willing to keep up with the mother tongue of the country they are not living in. I have prepared native speakers teenagers to successfully pass their French Baccalaureate, British teenagers to get A-Grades to their GCSE and A levels, and bilingual teenagers to get their GCSE and/ or A-levels as independent candidates. I have taught adults from several nationalities and backgrounds such as students, lecturer from university, journalists, PhD students, nurses, artists, lawyers, therapists, film editors, engineers or business owners to learn French for personal or professional purposes, either as complete beginners or by adapting to their current level to take them to the next one.

I organise my own lessons, prepare the material and resources. I use my skills and knowledge of the French language and culture to improve my students' reading, writing, speaking and listening.
I strongly believe in the importance of being taught by a native speaker who also is a qualified teacher when it comes to learning a foreign language. I have high expectations and believe that every student should be able to fulfil their own potential to be happy and confident learners. I believe that my expertise will benefit your learning. I am totally dedicated to my students' needs and I am proud to teach them in a way that their progress goes beyond their own expectations.

If you have got any questions, please, feel free to contact me and I will get back to you shortly.

Cécile offers a great, fun and relaxed way of learning French. The sessions are adaptable to whichever level of French you are at. I started having French lessons with Cécile 2 yrs ago along with my daughter, then Y9 now Y11.
Continued French lessons, now with younger daughter. Both I & my daughter (Yr9) basic level++ and I beginner+ look forward to and enjoy our hour of French. Cécile is patient and encouraging with her students.
We highly recommend "Go French Yourself Bristol". Très bien.
