students have had excellent results. I also organise regular visits for French visitors to my region. I have a relaxed approach to tutoring and have proved that this achieves the best results. I put my students at their ease realising that sometimes learners have a diffident approach to Modern Foreign Languages learning. My oldest student was 94 and my youngest was 5. Having worked with a wide variety of students I have great experience of...

my fluency and up-to-date knowledge of both languages by reading a lot. As well as the above I am currently tutoring students in French (Beginners and GCSE level) and in German (beginners through to A level) and have done some EFL teaching. I believe the key to successful langauge learning is the building block approach - it is crucial to understand one thing before moving on. Motivation comes through success. Lots of practice, both oral...

so well I can be extremely flexible and can instantly fine tune my approach according to the need of my student at any given moment. Thanks to my long experience I have become extremely responsive to the all-important feedback I get from my students, encouraging questioning of course, taking into account their correct or incorrect responses, hesitations, even body language. I hope my students find my enthusiasm catching and I try to ensure that they...

of a mentor to me, once answered a question about methods of teaching reading by saying that there are as many methods as there are children. I have never forgotten that. My current clients range from schoolchildren battling with learning disabilities, through Oxford and Cambridge applicants, from adults beginners to some with post-graduate degrees. The quest for creative, individual solutions to educational problems affords me tremendous stimulation, and my students do well, whether they are...

the work place. I am also available to mentor learners in using their language skills in the work place. I do this by working with learners 'on the job' and helping them to get their languages up to speed as they work. I have a 'goal' based approach. The first session involves getting to know the student, finding out what their aims are for the tuition and what motivates them to learn. I then tailor...

their first steps in both languages. I care about clarity, accuracy and enjoyment. Using a range of techniques I cater for different needs and learning styles. Increasing learner confidence and fluency is very important to me, but I can equally deliver secure foundations in grammar and linguistic insight at expert level. Whatever the content and approach, the environment is always relaxed and friendly. Be prepared to work in new ways and with plenty of cultural...

enjoy what they are learning! I believe in a learner-centered approach, which allows students to play an active role in the learning process. Everyone learns a little differently, so I try to understand a learner's particular style in order to to tailor lessons and activities to that student's needs. My objective is to give students the tools and strategies they need to be able to learn and study effectively. It is important to develop and...

Whatever your reasons for learning French, working with a private French tutor is a great way to pick up the language. With the help of one of our private French language tutors you can improve your French conversation or work on French spelling and grammar. Private French language tutors also move at the pace that is right for you.

A private French language teacher will provide personal support until you have reached the level that you need. Unlike a personal French language course, private French tuition also has the flexibility to meet your needs. You may want your French tutoring to focus exclusively on your French speaking, for instance, or need to learn French geared to business instead of just personal use. To ensure you find private French classes in your local area that suit you, we ask all of our private French tutors to detail their experience in a personal profile. As you browse these profiles you can also see feedback on our private French tutors.

This is the only place to discover through one search the most suitable French teacher for your needs, their charges and proximity to you. Learning French can be extremely challenging, and French lessons can really help your learning!
