Qualified native French teacher (London) will help you succeed with your French!

Methodology

Bonjour ! My name is Samy. I hold a MA in French for Foreigners.

I teach younger students (GCSE/A-Level), as well as adult learners.
My accent is very standard French, as it is spoken in Paris and in most parts of France.

As a qualified teacher (QTS), I am very familiar with GCSE/A-Level exam specifications, and I have helped many students reach excellent results (A* standards) at the City of London School for Boys ('14th Best School in the UK for A-Level' - Best-Schools.co.uk).

FREE trial lesson
During a FREE 20 minute trial lesson, you can get a taste of my teaching style and see if that suits your needs. I can assess your level, and focus on improving the weak components, as well as using your strengths, in order to build confidence.
We will also clarify when and where we will meet in person.
The FREE lesson can take place through Skype, or over the phone. We will meet in person after that (your place/a coffee shop, depending on your location).

How does it work?
Before each lesson, I will let you know what we will cover.
At the beginning of each lesson, we will revise what we have covered before, so that you don't forget when life gets in the way.
At the end of each lesson, we will make plans on what to cover next.
I am very patient and encouraging. However, I also like to challenge you to reach your best, and build confidence. I do think confidence and motivation are key to the hard task that is learning a language, so I like to focus on your personal interests and identify your learning style, in order to keep your motivation alive.
I am very much focused on your short term/ long term objectives. I want the language to stick, and help you reach your goals.


If that sounds good to you, please let me know!
I have a great range of availability as I work as a full time French tutor.

Please find a summary of what I offer:

*For GCSE/A-Level students*

⦁ I have worked as a French Language Assistant for GCSE/IGCSE/A-Level (AS and A2) at the City of London School for Boys ('14th Best School in the UK for A-Level' - Best-Schools.co.uk).
⦁ I offer:
- Great results at GCSE/A-Level (A* standards)
- Academic French, focused on exam specifications
⦁ I have extensive knowledge of the AQA/Edexcel curriculum
⦁ I share feedback with the parent so that you can check for actual progress every time

How do you conduct your lessons with GCSE/A-Level students?
⦁ The FREE 20 minute trial lesson will give you a taste of how I teach.
⦁ I conduct my lessons:
- Following the specifications of your exam board (AQA, Edexcel, etc.)
- By assessing the student's level and focus on improving the weak components (Listening/Speaking - Reading/Writing), as well as using the student's strengths, to build confidence
- By providing the student with my own tailored resources and exercises.
However, I expect the student to have his textbook and exercise book ready. A digital device is also a must if working on Listening.
- By setting homework for the next session, so that no lesson time is wasted away
- By sharing with the parent the necessary feedback to check for progress

Alastair L
"Samy was an outstanding MFL Assistant for one academic year at the City of London School. Reliable and committed Samy made a significant contribution towards a high rate of success in the French speaking component at A level. He worked very effectively within the Department and was a well liked by both colleagues and students."

Michael
"Excellent tutor my love was very pleased with the French tuition."


*For Adult learners*

⦁ I have 200+ hours experience teaching adults, in person and online
⦁ I have my own questionnaire to assess your needs and objectives, and I will prepare a learning plan accordingly, one that suits your busy London life
⦁ I offer:
- Conversational/Real life French
(for visiting France/moving to France/working with French colleagues/for pleasure)
- 'Academic' French: if you need to prepare for an exam (DELF, DALF...)
- A tailored of mix of both
- Great results and confidence speaking!
⦁ I am used to working with adults whose English is native or second language, which makes it easier for you to make connections between English and French

How do you conduct your lessons with adult learners?
⦁ The FREE 20 minute trial lesson will give you a taste of how I teach.
⦁ I conduct my lessons with some/all of the following:
- Guided conversation (with correction and feedback), with my own list of conversation starters/topics
- Clear explanations of French grammar: always in context, with practical examples
- My own vocabulary lists, with cherry-picked words and expressions (conversational and/or academic), including frequent mistakes such as the dreaded 'false friends'
- Listening and/or reading material from selected texts/audio/video
- Homework tailored to your needs, personality and interests, so that you make the most of your time in between sessions!


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."



So don't be shy and try out what's best for you!


A très bientôt!
Samy

Background

I have been giving private tuition since 2012 in London, both face to face and online.
I am qualified to teach teenagers (10-18), although I have been teaching adults too outside a classroom setting.
In the summer of 2017 I taught French in a Summer School in Switzerland, with great results (take home goodies, a filmed play, a short movie to show their parents, etc.)

I love teaching because it allows me to meet people from very different backgrounds and countries.
I've been teaching in the UK, Croatia and Switzerland, meeting different cultures all the time, from: Saudi Arabia, China, USA, Kazakhstan...
I've also had private students from Germany, Russia, Greece, Spain, Italy...
