Personal Description:

I am a very experienced AS and A2 French A level teacher, and taught GCSE and GCE for over twenty five years - all at the same Northamptonshire Secondary school. I am very familiar with the Cambridge entrance procedures, and have a number of students who are either currently studying at Cambridge or who have since graduated. I am consistently rated as 'outstanding' or as 'good with outstanding features' in both internal monitoring reviews and by Ofsted. I am very lively, energetic, and will expect students to work hard!
I have taught nearly all of the texts and films in the current AQA A level syllabus, and have a wealth of expertise (and resources!) to enable students to achieve top results.
I am familiar with both DELF and DALF, at all levels, and regularly support students through their degree courses.

Teaching Experience:

See above! Note also that I have a First Class Honours degree (Nottingham), an MA (SOAS, University of London) and attained QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in 1992.
Update: I am currently preparing my timetable for September 2022. Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any queries.

Teaching Approach:

I use a variety of teaching methods, and tailor them to the needs of my students. I believe that an understanding of French grammar is the key to being able to really manipulate and 'own' a language. I pride myself on being able to simplify and demystify French, and have many students who are amazed at how straightforward French can be, when carefully taught. Most of my A level students actually choose to pursue French - at least in some capacity - at degree level… Even those who were adamant that they would not, at the start of our sessions together! I hope to encourage, inspire, and occasionally entertain (!) my students. I expect them to work hard, but the rewards can be fantastic.
