Methodology

MY APPROACH
In my opinion, you are never too old, too rusty or too slow to learn!

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.

YOUR LESSONS
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, exercises and games.

The lessons are based on the Common European Framework of reference for languages (A1 to 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 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 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 understandalbe 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.

Experience

I am Cecile, a professional French native teacher, with almost 10 years of experience, included 6 in Bristol. I passed a Masters Degree in Teaching French Literature and Language after graduating in Literature, Philosophy and Humanities in France. I also hold a Master's degree in Teaching French as a Modern Foreign Language. I am a friendly and open-minded teacher and who believes that it's always a good time to learn a new language!

Having both taught in France and in England I have got a deep understanding of both cultures and educational system, hence I adapt my teaching according to your needs and expectations.
I teach all ages and levels from complete beginners to advanced learners I can prepare you with any French exams such DELF, DALF, GCSE, A-level as well as IB and Baccalaureate according to the French curriculum. I followed a PGCE course as well so I am up-to-date with the most recent exams specifications and requirements.

I offer small groups up to 8 persons, one-to-one and in-company lessons, as well as, tailored French business courses and job 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!

Feel free to have a look at my website for more informations or testimonial on ''Go French Yourself Bristol'' either in Google or on FB. You will see genuine reviews from authentic current and past students.

For the last 6 years, I have taught French to a wide range of students with a great variety of backgrounds. Having helped and trained many students I am convinced that my passion will benefit your learning.

Some were British, American, Spanish or Panamean children for example; others were bilingual children willing to keep up with the mother tongue of the country they are not living in or French children and teenagers following French curriculum whilst abroad with their family.

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.

Whatever my students' background or expectations, I always totally dedicated to my students' needs and I am proud to teach them in a way that their progress goes beyond their own expectations.

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 I use my skills and enthusiasm to become a confident learner of French!

Last but not least, I am proud to provide a safe and reassuring environment for all my students, that's why I am enhanced CRB checked.

If you have got any questions, please, feel free to contact me and I will get back to you shortly. I am looking forward to meet you in person!

A bientôt!

Cecile

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.
