Céline

Nottingham Tutor

A native French speaker, I have 17 years experience of working with children and 10 years teaching French to both adults and children. I take a creative and innovative approach in my teaching using a range of resources including using pictures, books, songs and new technologies. I have worked in a range of specialisms including fine art and contemporary dance; I also spent one year as a teacher within a psychiatric hospital. As well as being a teacher, I am a practicing artist. I have a BA in Fine Arts and am able to deliver art sessions and workshops. My artwork is multidisciplinary involving photography, video, drawing, performance and installations. I have experience working with asylum seekers and refugees in community arts organisation and with adults and children in psychotherapeutic settings.

I have a real passion for different forms of art. I am also experienced in a range of dance practices including contemporary, West African and Samba. I also enjoy taking part in carnivals, singing, playing percussion and learning Capoeira. I am a friend of the Nottingham Refugee Forum. I am part of a intercultural band with which I perform songs in different language.

Tutoring Experience

Currently working as a Modern Foreign Language (MFL) Teacher, I am responsible for teaching French to 7 class groups of primary school children.

Tutoring Approach

I think it is very important to start from the learner's perspective so I center my tutoring on what you would like to learn and how much you would like to achieve. I also adjust to your learning style and try to offer various approaches.
When working artistically and with "special needs" or "study skills", I have a very empathetic approach, using intuition and feelings to accompany clients in their learning journey.
