In my opinion, a good methodology is the road to success all exams and interviews. I support all my students guiding them through the expectations, giving them clear advice and instructions on how to achieve their goals and coaching them on an intellectual and interpersonal level so they become confident enough to reach their goals with the success they deserve.
Exams preparation can be taught in a fun and efficient way being based on expectations and course book but also on real-life situations with a particular focus on communication skills. The aim is to improve your knowledge of the subject for you to be able to demonstrate your confidence within that subject and to feel at ease with it whatever the expectations and kind of exams or interview process you will have to go through.
The lessons are based on your needs and are tailored especially for you.
They cover all aspects of the exams / admission process, included interpersonal presentation. I always make sure to structure the lessons around the 4 language skills: methodology, exam based question and general communication and confidence advice. I incorporate grammar point, speaking practice, formal exercises and games to make sure that your language both written and speaking is at its best.
The lessons are based on the Curriculum specifically recommended for your exams / interview depending what you are applying for. It will be our reference and 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 homework and lessons to learn and practice in between lessons to embed the contents from the previous one and to be ready for the next one.
The learning material is provided and I am proud to provide each students with a specific follow-up which can be accessed in an online personal space. There are provided lessons, exercises or homeworks and extra resources for you to further your learning whilst not in the classroom!
In order to achieve those goals, I use a well-structured scheme of work following a step-by-step way of learning the structure which is required for the different exam types such as a dissertation, literary comment or synthesis for example. Thanks to my studies and experience, I am able to explain the technical points and the nuances of the language and exercices 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.

Cécile is a very thoughtful tutor - caring in style and personalises lessons both to things she has noticed you’re weak at but also requests. I’ve improved my French speaking confidence no end including recapping important grammar and picking up aspects of modern and historical French culture
Cécile has been a brilliant tutor who has helped me maintain my level of French over the past five years. Her lessons were engaging and the work she prepared was tailored to my interests. Cécile also helped to guide me through my French A-Level in an organised and in-depth manner. I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
Cecile is a very good tutor who helped my daughter throughout her tough preparation of French Baccalaureat in Philosophy, History, Geography and Sc Politics. She is very reliable and has excellent various teaching skills. When COVID occured she was able to switch immediately from face to face to remote tutoring with the same professionalism and without any disruption. I recommend her with no hesitation.
