Qualified French teacher with MA in French will skyrocket your (I)GCSE/A level grades! More confidence speaking and writing for students and adults!

Methodology

WHO AM I?

⦁ I have studied in the 'classes préparatoires' in France, the best education in the country. There I studied French and English extensively for 3 years. I gained invaluable experience of translation practice and was awarded prizes and merit distinctions.
⦁ In the most prestigious Universities in France, "École normale supérieure de Paris", and Sorbonne University (Paris), I studied to become a teacher and gained my French PGCE.
⦁ I gained a MA in Teaching French as Second Language, to be able to share the language I love so much.


WHAT ARE MY SPECIALTIES?

⦁ Building the student's confidence, especially for the Speaking and Writing part of the exams
⦁ Pushing students to reach their full potential, up to 9/A* standards
⦁ Focus on exam technique and learning methods for better marks
⦁ Focus on grammar and language accuracy to reach top marks
⦁ For A2 Speaking: IRP and Speaking cards (topics and sub-topics on France and French speaking countries)
⦁ For A2 Writing: French Books and Movies (L'Etranger, La Haine, No et Moi, Un Sac de Billes, etc.)
⦁ A level French (AS, A2) for AQA, Edexcel, Eduqas
⦁ Cambridge IGCSE French
⦁ GCSE French, Higher Tier for AQA, Edexcel
⦁ 13+ Grammar Schools entry exams
⦁ Adult professionals


WHAT ARE MY TEACHING METHODS?

⦁ A patient and encouraging manner, that increases the student's confidence
⦁ A professional evaluation of the student's strengths and weaknesses, to keep track of the student's progress
⦁ Very clear explanations of grammar, followed by examples tailored for the exam
⦁ Focuses on the student's personal interests, which increases memorization and relates to his/her personal life

⦁ Guided conversation for Adult professionals, focused on 'real life' French:
- loads of uninterrupted speaking time, to build confidence speaking
- followed by a detailed feedback that you can implement immediately


WHICH RESOURCES DO YOU USE?

⦁ Past papers for the required exam
⦁ I tutor in accordance with the Mark schemes and Examiner reports, to focus on just what the student needs
⦁ Internet links to provide exercises to be practiced at home


DO YOU SET HOMEWORK IN BETWEEN LESSONS?

⦁ Yes: it ensures that a lot of practice has been made before the next lesson, and saves valuable lesson time
⦁ Yes: I want to make sure the student knows what will be covered next time, according to a learning plan and learning objectives
⦁ Yes: the key to the student's rapid and sustainable progress is that every lesson ends with homework every time until the next tutoring session.


I have been very lucky to go through an excellent education, and I'm obsessed with the idea of giving back and helping those who need it.

Since I'm very young, I've always had an intimate connection with my native language, and I love to share my passion for how the language works and what it conveys.

Samy - French Tutor



Rochelle
"Samy has a great approach to teaching. The lesson had a good pace and was challenging throughout but not overwhelming. Overall it was a positive learning experience and I would recommend Samy as a tutor. I will book more lessons with Samy."

Samuel
"Samy est très gentil et patient, et en tant que professeur, il est bien compétent. J'ai appris beaucoup d'expressions utiles pendant la classe, ainsi que les aspects culturels français. Merci beaucoup !"

Liam
"Samy is very friendly, easy to talk to, keeps the conversation moving, and gives very detailed feedback. Once again, we had a great lesson."

Experience

WHAT IS MY EXPERIENCE?

⦁ At the City of London School for Boys, I have successfully taught pupils for IGCSE French and A level French who have gone on to both Oxford and Cambridge.
⦁ I know of the academic excellence and high expectations of selective UK independent schools
⦁ I have extensive experience tutoring students from the most prestigious schools in and around London, among them:


- City of London School for Boys, where I have taught French IGCSE and French A-level
- Latymer Upper School
- St Marylebone School
- Eltham College
- Radley College
- Wisbech Grammar School
- Mill Hill School
- Roedan School
- King Edward VI School for Girls

and many more.


⦁ Due to my long tutoring experience, I know of the high expectations put on students. This is why I take pride in delivering top level tuition in every lesson.

⦁ I have learned that tailoring learning strategies to every student's skills - language skills, and/or analytical skills for A level - significantly increase the pupil’s confidence and improve the chances to achieve his or her goals. This is how I can make a difference to the students' lives.
