I am a native and experienced French speaker. I have been living in Sheffield since 2007 and have 2 children of Primary school age.
As well as teaching, I have worked in the voluntary sector for 15 years and the business sector for 3.
I have always enjoyed learning languages and finding out about various cultures and have travelled to many places where I have used my languages whenever I can.
I take my work seriously and am patient and reliable with my students.
Although I have been teaching languages on and off for over 20 years, I have been a full time tutor since 2010 to a wide range of pupils:
a) Young children in groups through Le Club Francais, classes of 4 years old in nursery, home educated children
b) Young people taking their GCSE or A level
c) Adults wishing to brush up their rusty school French, people new to the language going on holiday to France, adults with properties in France
d) Business clients doing business with French speaking countries.
I can provide references of students who have gained good results in their exams up to A*
I provide one to one or small group tutoring at all levels from beginners to A level +, including conversation, grammar, vocabulary, Business French.
I tailor my classes to my students and like to provide a variety of teaching materials and resources ( worksheets, games, books, the internet, CD and DVD) to develop a friendly, dynamic and fun environment to put my pupils at ease and grow their confidence in speaking French.
I am available school term time + 3 weeks in summer holidays between 9.30 to 14.00 and 17.30 to 21.00 weekdays.
