Hi, I’m Le-My! I am a native English speaker from London, and graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA Modern Languages.
I have over 6 years' experience teaching English as a second language. I have taught at all levels, ranging from complete beginners to advanced, and everything in-between.
Lessons are tailored to you and your specific needs. Whether you would like to focus on particular grammar points, have conversation practice, work on pronunciation, or simply want to improve your overall language level, I would love to help.
Given that my degree was in Modern Languages, I completely understand how nerve-wracking it can be to speak a language that is not native to your own, no matter what level you are at, making me all the more patient and empathetic.
Written comprehension - English
I have been teaching English as a second language for over 6 years now. My past students come from all levels and backgrounds: students on study exchanges in the UK, a five-year-old girl in Rome, and working professionals. Whilst at Oxford, I also volunteered with the charity FELLOW (Free English Language Lessons for Overseas Workers).
Le-My has been working with my Y8 son every week for nearly a year now, and we are so happy that we found her - we could not have met anyone more perfect to work with him.
He’s at a school where lessons are fast paced and with high expectations, so we were looking for someone to ensure that he keeps on top of all the vocab and grammar. Le-My goes over everything that he is learning each week at school, meaning that he is really confident in class and doing well.
We initially thought this would just improve his spoken French but actually Le-My also tests him on spelling, which is really fantastic for his written work too.
Le-My is not only brilliantly efficient, calm, organised and precise, but also friendly, kind, enthusiastic and cheerful, which my son very much appreciates - he always looks forward to his lessons with her.
From my point of view, I trust totally that between them they are covering everything thoroughly, and so French is the one subject where I don’t have to ask him if he’s up to date with homework and revision for tests!
Le-My is an amazing language tutor. She taught my teenage son through his French GCSE. She boosted his grade by at least 2 levels. She gave him confidence and an enthusiasm for the subject She is totally professional and positive in her attitude. 100% recommend, any student is lucky to have her!
Le-My has been teaching my 7-year-old son Mandarin for a few months now. She is very kind, patient, and is very good at explaining things really clearly. Mandarin is a notoriously difficult language, and she makes it really fun (even easy?) for him. My son's confidence in speaking, reading and writing has improved drastically. Highly recommended!!
For someone who learnt French as her 4th language I believe, and then going on to at study it at Oxford.. it's obvious that Le My is a highly capable linguist. She spent her summer holidays working in rural France in order to hone her linguistic skills. The fact that she's a Brit that has learnt the French language from scratch (at a later age) and managed to hone it to such a high level, she can empathise with those english speakers trying to work on this romantic language. I've rehearsed with her in the past and I have found her empathy, patience and knowledge of the learning process to have been conducive to many pleasant and productive sessions.
I've been doing 1 or 2 lessons a week with Le-My for about two months and it has honestly helped my spoken French a ton. Most of the lessons are us chatting in "slow French", which is just what I needed. She has also given me "homework" a few times to help with some of the grammar that I still need to learn. Overall, highly recommended. Merci pour tout !
