Well-qualified teacher of French with over 25 years of experience, passionate about language teaching.

Methodology

My teaching method involves the communicative approach and at the same time, I like to focus on the structure and grammar of the language. I speak in the target language most of the time and will give explanations in English, if necessary. I enjoy seeing my students make progress and try to help them reach their full potential.

Background

I qualified as a MFL teacher with a PGCE and degree in French with over 25 years experience working in the state secondary education sector. I have taught French from KS3 - KS5 and have extensive knowledge of the requirements to take exams at GCSE and at A level.
