My key aim is to create a safe setting within which each student can feel free to learn without negative pressures from classroom peers, judgment from teachers, fear of criticism or embarrassment, or any other restrictions. I design my lessons around each student’s aims, interests and ambitions, keeping study sessions fun and motivation high.
Every student will have different questions, different talents and will need to face different hurdles. My calm, patient and considerate approach to tutoring creates an environment where no question is silly, any worries about the subject can be discussed openly, and frustrations can be ironed out, explored and worked through. A one-to-one tutoring session also means gifted students can be pushed further than they would be in a classroom environment. In effect, it is the student who will dictate the pace of the sessions.
Currently all lessons are online. I prefer to use Zoom.

I have a DESEM (Diplôme d’Etudes Supérieures Européennes de Management – equivalent to a UK Honours degree) from Euromed Management in Marseille, France. A prestigious and selective 'école de commerce', all tuition was in French. I also have a BA (Hons) degree in European Management (2:1) from Middlesex University Business School in London.
I have lived, worked and studied in France for several years and I am bilingual in all aspects of daily French life, culture and business.
Prior to tutoring, I spent 12 years in the media, direct marketing and recruitment industries in sales and marketing roles. As such I am well placed to tailor sessions to include business jargon and technical corporate vocabulary for Business French students.
Really happy to recommend Sarah. She has provided fun and interesting lessons for our son and given him invaluable techniques to achieve to the highest level.
Sarah tutored both my daughters through their GCSE French courses. They were both lacking in confidence and under-performing until they met Sarah and they both went on to achieve A grades under her supervision. She was kind, responsive to their needs and also extremely professional at all times. They looked forward to meeting with Sarah every week.
Sarah was always reliable and flexible when we needed last minute changes to the timetable. I can wholeheartedly recommend Sarah.
Sarah is a great French tutor for all levels – really patient and enthusiastic but most of all fun.
I really enjoyed my lessons with Sarah and encourage anyone to speak to her as she can be very flexible for intensive work schedules as well as long-standing arrangements. Sarah helped me get back on track with French to improve upon my basic school grounding and I felt much more confident.
Enthusiastic, engaging teaching! My daughter is actually enjoying French.....
