Qualified & Experienced French Teacher (PGCE) - Flexible Teaching - Outstanding Academics - Gets Results.

Methodology

Nice to meet you...enchantée!
I am a qualified secondary school teacher whose teaching specialism is French up to A-level. Let's work through the tricky stuff together, be it to get the grade you are hoping for in an exam or to fulfil your passion to speak like the locals. Whether you require a few sessions to prep for a test or are looking for longer-term support, I am here to ensure you attain your goals and provide as flexible a service as possible. I have a proven track-record of raising attainment, and always strive to go above and beyond students initial targets.

My approach to teaching is positive and enthusiastic - I always strive to use engaging, authentic resources to bring the language to life and keep things animated. Expect to be browsing French websites, reading articles from newspapers & magazines, watching videos on YouTube and listening to podcasts...out with the dusty textbook and in with genuine French language as used by natives.
In the initial lessons, I will be sure to get to know a little more about your interests so we can tailor lessons around you - nothing more tedious than reading a fashion article when you are a football fan, and vice-versa!
Don't worry, you won't be thrown into the deep-end; every lesson will be tailored to meet your level, and before you know it you will be tackling challenges you never thought possible. Language is all about confidence - together we will build this. There are no such things as mistakes, only learning experiences!

Background

A Little About Me
I am a graduate from the UCL Institute of Education, renowned as the world's best research centre for education. It was here that I obtained my Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as part of their highly-regarded PGCE course. I also completed my undergraduate degree at UCL, obtaining a First Class degree in French and Spanish.
In addition to my teaching experience (I have taught at schools across North London), I have four years individual tutoring experience, mostly through my involvement in a number of charitable projects in inner-city London, such as TalentEd and Brightside.
Do not hesitate to get in touch and ask me questions regarding tutoring of any kind - I am more than happy to respond to all queries and will do so as quickly as possible.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Annie
