I teach to a very wide range of ages, from 4 to 80+ years old! All my lessons are tailored according to the needs and objectives of my learners. I can offer online tuitions, individual or by group.
From reception to year 8:
My tuitions are adapted to children's spontaneity and curiosity.
We focus on developing the main four skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) by doing interactive activities involving a lot of playing, singing and creation of visual content. My courses are compatible with the official preparation for the DELF scolaire et junior.
From year 9 to year 11 :
We develop together the main four skills by creating an environment where the students feel comfortable discussing a variety of subjects they have interest about. We explore and deepen their comprehension of the French grammar through a wide range of books, methods and supports. I do preparation for the French GCSE paper and as mentioned above, 100% of my student scored 7+.
I also provide lessons to complete beginner adults willing to start their journey through French language. If you are looking for a handful of lessons to feel confident ordering food and booking a hotel room for your first holidays in France... that's fine ! If you are looking for a deeper immersion, that's fine as well.
After each lesson, I provide a PowerPoint presentation that contains all the materials we've studied during the tuitions. It also provides lists of vocabulary, sentences structures, movies, books and cultural references.
I was born and raised in a tiny French hamlet lost in the Poitou-Charente country side and have been living in the UK for almost two years now. I speak French as a mother tongue and English since I'm seven. I used to love learning English at school and this passion about the language never left me. I've always loved learning and sharing knowledges with other people. I have two degrees and a masters in Education sciences and social care.
Today, I'm a French teacher who has been working with the Alliance française Cambridge for almost two years - teaching students from all ages and level. I teach to groups and one-to-one sessions.
100% of my students scored 8+ for their French GCSE paper. I can prepare for both AQA and Edexcel boards of exams.
I am very enthusiastic, patient and like to make my lessons fun and interesting!

Perfect! Mathilde is very engaging and responsive with my eight year old son, I have loved listening to their lessons progress. Mathilde uses a very good learning system through Zoom that is easy to following and interactive for children. I highly recommend Mathilde!
Johnny was very enthusiastic and curious for our first lesson. I'm looking forward to continue working with him :)
Mathilde is an absolutely lovely tutor, always going above and beyond. I only wish that my previous teachers had been so caring and organised.
She was fast to recognise my current level of French and prepared really thoughtful tuitions and exercises for me to complete.
Mathilde progressed my grades far quicker than anticipated and I have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Merci beaucoup, tu es géniale Mathilde!
