Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been a teacher for over 9 years and have a very diverse experience as I have been working in an Alliance française in Mexico, a language centre, two adult education centres and two tutoring agencies. My first teaching experience was as a language assistant in Preston, Lancashire.
I have had students ranging from 7 years old to 70+, from absolute beginners to advanced levels. I've given private and group classes and intensive courses (up to 7h a day) in schools as well as in companies. I have over 4500 teaching hours, including more than 3200 hours of private tuition (basically in French Literature, French and English as Foreign Languages; 2500 of which in the UK).

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I do.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained with the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon for the Master's Degree and the university diploma to teach French.
I was accredited to administer DELF/DALF A1-C1 through the Alliance française in Monterrey, Mexico (2009-2012).

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Not at the moment.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Coming from France where I taught French Literature to a student preparing a diploma in Accounting, I have now been in London for four and a half years. I occasionally am in charge of groups of beginner students in a language school. At the moment, I give French private tuition (self-employed as well as through tutoring agencies) for the preparation of GCSE and IGCSE, DALF C1, CNED CE1 and CM2 (French school curriculum, distance learning) and university essay writing. I also tutor other students looking to learn or improve their French communication skills for personal reasons.

I had weekly French classes with Sophie for 1.5 years. She was very friendly and easy to get on with. Lessons were structured to my individual needs and I found it to be very good value for money.

Sophie was the first tutor I contacted when I decided to refresh my French, and as luck would have it I didn't need to look any further. She has all the qualities that go to make up an excellent tutor - she's patient, thorough, reliable, flexible, has an incredible command of the English language (more so than most English people!) as well as, of course, her native French, and is very easy to get along with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anybody.

Sophie has been my French tutor for 4 years. She has been excellent in every respect: attentive, has highly developed teaching skills, is unusually knowledgeable, is encouraging, totally reliable, and very easy to get on with.
