Experienced teacher and French native speaker gives French lessons in Edinburgh for conversational practice and exam preparation

Methodology

I am a French native speaker studying a master in Translating at Heriot-Watt university.

I offer lessons tailored to the student's needs. I myself have been through the process of learning several foreign languages, and I know the time, energy, and personal investment that it takes. I promise to make learning French as enjoyable as possible... and to make grammar as easy as possible! I do my best to be reachable and supportive.

I am also happy to revise your resume, cover letter, and proofread your essays.

We can meet at my home, at your home, or in a public place.

À très bientôt !

Léa

Experience

I started tutoring while studying my bachelor's degree in Paris. I have now 6 years of experience giving private lessons to French high school students, mostly for French literature (le bac français !). I also had the opportunity to give private lessons in philosophy, and to teach French to secondary school pupils. This year, I am teaching English to two French students via Skype.
I have experience working with groups: while I was living in Sweden in 2016, I facilitated discussions for French at a language cafe.

Lea helped me while I was graduating in my bachelor degree in foreign languages. She has a good knowledge in both English and French, and she was adapting to the topics I wanted to cover.

Une très bonne prof de français qui m'a beaucoup aidé pendant mon année de première.
Je la recommande fortement !

Je connais Léa depuis l’hypokhâgne, soit pas mal d’années au cours desquelles j’ai pu l’observer développer et affiner son sens de la pédagogie, sa patience et son sens de l’écoute. Non seulement vos moyennes vont bondir, mais vous allez en plus découvrir tout un pan de la culture artistique, littéraire, et notamment anglophone que vous ne soupçonniez pas !
