With an experienced, fully qualified teacher, learning French can be easy and fun. (I am based in Edinburgh)

Methodology

I conduct classes in French (unless the student wishes to change the language, e.g. for the translation of grammar issues).
We will work on: speaking, listening, reading and writing. For sure we will also laugh a lot :)
Each meeting will begin with a short review, then we will talk, read, work on correct pronunciation, grammar issues and expanding vocabulary.
I will try to adapt to your needs and capabilities (we will adapt the pace of work to your expectations, we will agree on whether you want to get housework or not). We will focus on the areas that are most important to you - we can primarily work on oral communication on grammatical issues or impeccable pronunciation.

Background

I am a fully qualified French teacher (MA in Romance Philology, University of Lodz (Poland) and Université de Picardie Jules Vernes (France).
I have been a teacher since 2013 and with every passing year I like my work more and more.
The age of my students ranges from 6 to 60 years of age (before I moved to Edinburgh, I have worked in primary, secondary and language school).

Great knowledge and professionalism, remarkable approach and very nice personality. Definitely Natalia can help anyone who wishes to learn French no matter if they are on beginner or advanced lvl. Studying with her was an awesome experience to me!

She is very patient and has a good down to earth attitude. When I've met her my French was non existent. During her tutelage I progressed in leaps and bounds.
I can't recommend her enough.
