Personal Description:

I am passionate about the French language and culture and this is reflected in my ability to help students maximise their potential and improve their confidence.

I am currently studying for a Language Studies degree in French and Spanish with the Open University.

Tutoring Experience:

I lived in France for 11 years where I taught and tutored language. I gained a wide variety of experience including working for a language school where I gave individual and group tuition to company employees in France and Switzerland. I also spent 4 years teaching English in a secondary school in France where I prepared students for their baccalaureate exam. During this time I studied for a teaching qualification for which I was awarded a distinction.

On returning to the UK I spent 3 years working in a local secondary school supporting students who had a wide variety of special educational needs. I have also worked as a foreign language assistant helping to prepare students for their GCSE French and Spanish exams.

As a result of this I have considerable experience of both teaching and supporting students and I am able to communicate with students of mixed abilities and age.

I currently tutor French to a variety of students from GCSE and A level to mature students. This includes tutoring students with special educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially it is necessary to determine the individual needs of the students, highlighting their strengths and focusing on their areas for improvement. I find it important to establish how each student learns so that I can tailor my lessons to maximise each individual's potential. I use a wide variety of resources and techniques to practice the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing. During lessons, ideas and concepts are communicated using the target language itself, where practical.
