Personal Description:

A dynamic and highly experienced and results driven language teacher and avid linguist.

Teaching at secondary level, I have helped countless students of all learner profiles and abilities over the years ( 25 )and thoroughly enjoy seeing students progress!

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst teaching in France, I perfected my French and initially taught at private school in Haute Savoie,
2 years in Lyon and in Paris in 'formation continue' where I lived for 7 years. I have also gained much valuable pedagogical experience in many secondary schools( all levels / all abilities ) in Dublin up to honours leaving cert level with a really high level of success. In addition, I have been offering tuition for 25 years also.
(Testimonials from previous students if required and on this platform)

Furthermore,I taught English and French at secondary level in Valencia for three years.

Currently,I am teaching French in Secondary and providing tailor made tuition in French, English & Spanish.

My focus is on

French Junior cert up to university level.
Spanish Junior & leaving cert level.
English Junior & leaving cert level.

I am currently not doing translations.

Approach to Grinds:

My approach is to make your lessons extremely learner centered while allow you to perceive your progress and keep motivated to improve further.

To this end,I always adapt my lessons very carefully to suit each particular student's learner needs and learner style with their learning objective in mind.

Digital technologies are an integral part of my methodology, as I make all my lessons up to date with easily accessible learner centered resources for practice.

It is also paramount that I empower my students with skills for practising between lessons, which allows faster perceptible progress!

*After an initial lesson, where I assess your prior language acquisition and areas on which to focus,I go at your particular pace for progress while simultaneously challenging you via active methodologies to build on your learning.

*Please note all classes are held in Portmarnock !*****

English students

You will gain enhanced reading skills & strategies.

3) How can I be assured I am making progress?? *****

Your feedback on particular areas will attest to your real progress !
( provided by assessments I set , all your results and what you will notice about your new language acquisition!)


1 once off one-one lesson( 1 hour ) €€50

If you decide to take another 5 / 7 lessons , your classes are then payable in advance for the corresponding number remaining and the price is adjusted down accordingly.

6 lessons € 275 €225 REMAINING 5
8 lessons= €360 €310 REMAINING 7

Why one to one rather than small groups?

*One to one lessons are most productive as this is where real learning takes place as students can ask any questions they feel unable to ask in a class setting and I can address specific difficulties much more easily and cater for the students learner style and monitor progress more closely.
Each student receives individualised online support material to complement the lessons.

N.B: All tuition is in Portmarnock.

N.B I always endeavour to offer flexible times.
