« I feel like saying I found not only a teacher but a real mentor! Coco is a patient and open-minded woman and so empathetic that she was able to understand my artistical needs! As soon as she proposed me some exercises ,she was able to make me feel very comfortable! You can feel her experience in the music field by simply listening to her and by letting her guide you... If your goal is to become a better singer/artist,let her help you out! You'll be amazed! »

Sociolinguistics postgrad with 15+ years' experience lecturing French and Translation - offers 11+, critical thinking, essay writing and Oxbridge entry coaching

Methodology

I build from students' knowledge, and I teach them to learn, thus enabling them to grow their confidence and helping them discover strategies that make learning enjoyable and efficient.

I am flexible, willing to adapt to students' needs.

My first lesson will be a Skype conversation discussing your needs and preferred learning styles, what has worked and hasn't worked for you, and your specific goals.

Experience

Holder of a Masters degree in Sociolinguistics from Kings College London, I have over 15 years' experience working as a lecturer in FE colleges and giving private lessons. I am a native French speaker, so I teach French, but also 11+ exam preparation, essay writing, Critical thinking, University statement preparation, Oxbrige preparation (for languages and social science) and more.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £10
Rate for online lessons : £30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £30
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £25

Details

My rates vary depending on student age. For 11+ I can accept £25 but the lessons come in packs of 5. 48h cancellation is free, if cancellation occurs 24h before the lesson or on the same day, payment is due.

I feel like saying I found not only a teacher but a real mentor! Coco is a patient and open-minded woman and so empathetic that she was able to understand my artistical needs! As soon as she proposed me some exercises ,she was able to make me feel very comfortable! You can feel her experience in the music field by simply listening to her and by letting her guide you... If your goal is to become a better singer/artist,let her help you out! You'll be amazed!
