Personal Description:

I'm Helen and I fell in love with France and all things French thirty years ago when I spent a year teaching in France whilst completing my degree. I know how hard it can be to learn a new language, but it can also be fun! I'm a qualified French teacher, I'm bubbly but patient and I'm here to help you develop and improve your key language skills, encompassing listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Teaching Experience:

Although I qualified as a French teacher and have spent many hours in a classroom, I have also spent much of my working life using my French in a business environment, as a Wine Buyer for a major retailer. However, I loved teaching so much, that I did 1-2-1 GCSE tutoring and group work for KS1 whenever I could fit it in. I now have the freedom to pursue this passion for French and for teaching further.

Teaching Approach:

I employ a flexible approach, lessons would be tailored to the student's needs, to ensure they are lively, interesting and interactive. French is a living language, so I want to help the student gain confidence whilst conversing in French, therefore lessons are designed to be useful in real life situations. I use a variety of resources and want to immerse the student in French culture, whether that be by enjoying French patisserie or by doing some wine tasting by region, using my experience as a Wine buyer (adults only). If we have fun, are focused and make measured progress, then I consider my job well done.
