Information About Sophie - Uxbridge teacher - (19 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Sophie:
I am a 39 years old French native speaker, and I live in France. I have been teaching French and English as second languages since I'm 19, in France and overseas.
Living in France in Bordeaux, I ONLY OFFER ONLINE TUITION via Skype.
If you are looking for a private online tutor, I am the perfect match because I am native, qualified and experienced, efficient and friendly! I mainly teach to adults but I I'm used to children and GCSE.
I have 2 Master degrees in French and English as second languages. These allowed me to teach languages from primary and secondary schools to private institutions. I am used to teaching to adults of any level and specific needs. I can also meet your child if online tuition is fine with you both, or if hé bé/she needs to be ready for the GCSE test.
I live in France and I only offer ONLINE tuition via Skype. These tools include all we need for a successful tuition: video camera, microphone, chat and possibility to send written and audio files. It's basically like a face to face tuition except we're both home in a different country!
For children, I cover basic topics (birthday, seasons, events, food, home, activities… ) with songs, drawings, flashcards… For secondary students, I will boost your skills for your GCSE or A-Level exams. We will focus on the specific topics and themes you need to master to get ready for the test.
For adults, it will really depend on your goals: a French test, traveling (learning basics or getting more confident), professional, both… I have been and I am still working with every range of age and level, so I know and I will adapt myself on the client needs.

Sophie is able to assess her students language level and teach at the right level for the student. Moreover, Sophie takes the time to listen to her students needs and provide bespoke language lessons.
In her lesson Sophie follows a proper method, she does a warmer at the beginning, then provides input in target language through engaging activities, and then then applies the new language through speaking activities and practice activities. She also provides homework and useful feedback.
Sophie is very flexible, everything is very easy and straight forward.
I would fully recommend Sophie as a teacher for all ages, levels and specialisms.
I spend my life on Zoom but still wasn't sure how well learning a language would work. I'm very pleased at how the relationship has worked and how effective Sophie has made the learning.
What I really like about Sophie is that it's clear she has all of the "stock lessons" however it's she thinks about her clients and builds personalised lessons around topics and content that reflects their interests. She makes the lessons engaging, fun and challenging so I'm always making progress. Every lesson is different.
Our lessons are by Skype and Sophie has mastered it so it works seamlessly with conversation, audio clips, video clips providing the lesson content. She uses the chat to provide feedback, vocabulary, grammar and links to other resources. The chat also captures these so you don't need to take notes.
help with the subject. She makes class interesting and exciting. She is always
enthusiastic about the French and its culture. I highly recommend Sophie as a French teacher.
Sophie was always well organised and punctual and she always had my best interests at heart; she showed a genuine desire to want to help me to speak French (unlike some teachers I have used on this platform) and always engineered her programs to benefit my learning in the most efficient and effective way: I cannot recommend Sophie highly enough.
I had to postpone my studies due to travel but I very much hope to be back with her again in September!
I highly recommend Sophie as a French teacher.
Thanks for trusting.
