Personal Description:

I am a French native speaker who has been living in the UK for twenty five years. Holding a French degree in English and a diploma in translation, I first worked as a translator. Soon after, concurrently, I started working as a part-time French private tutor and adult education teacher. My qualification in this respect is a certificate of education (certed). For the past twenty years, I have switched to teaching French as my main occupation. This is a profession that I greatly enjoy for the pleasant social interactions that it offers me and my love of languages. Speaking French and English fluently and having a decent level in Portuguese and Spanish, I am well aware of the challenges faced by students learning a new language

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of experience in teaching adults in evening classes and tutoring of adults and children on a one-to one basis.

Teaching Approach:

Getting great pleasure from this occupation, I am always eager to explore new methods and activities to make my teaching as effective as possible and help the students realise their full potential. For the adult courses, at beginner or near-beginner levels, the material is first introduced in the shape of dialogues presented with the help of pictures. This is followed by a whole series of activities that include questions and answers, pattern-and-vocabulary-repeating exercises, role-plays and oral comprehension tests to help the student assimilate the contents of the dialogues.
For higher levels, to improve and maintain fluency in French, all aspects of language are systematically practised, especially oral skills, using modern material including news podcasts newspaper articles, comic strips and other types of reading materials.
For school children, after they have been assessed, the lessons will be tailored to bring them up to the level required by their schools or prepare them for the exams they will take in the future.
The typical length of a lesson is one hour
