French Tuition in Southampton

I am a qualified French and Spanish teacher at a secondary school in Southampton. I have a 2:1 French degree from Cardiff University and I have lived and worked in France including spending one year as an English teaching assistant in a secondary school in Grenoble. Having a French Canadian mother, I have been speaking French since I was a child.

I am a keen photographer and my other interests include tennis, cycling, playing guitar and European films.

Tutoring Experience

  • Qualified secondary school language teacher.

  • Experience teaching in France. Tasks included: lesson planning and construction, oral exam preparation, grammar exercises, phonetics and grammar games, correction and feedback, pupil discipline, pupil appraisal.

  • private one-to-one English lessons in France for a variety of different clients (adults looking to learn English for work, A-level students looking for exam revision).

Tutoring Approach

I am offering one-to-one private tuition in French or Spanish. I believe that effective language instruction consists of motivating the individual by creating an enjoyable, varied and challenging lesson set.

I adopt a personalized and bespoke approach to tuition. Each of my lessons are designed around the requirements and level of the student. I use a range of resources to aid my tuition including course books, my own documents, pictures, online software, music and film.

My bespoke lessons cater for:

  • Basic/Intermediate/advanced level (A1 to C1)
  • Preparation for GCSE and A-level examinations.
  • General conversation
  • Modern day French/Spanish and street language
  • French/Spanish in the work place

If you have any further questions or you are interested in arranging an initial meeting, please do not hesitate to contact me. The first meeting is free of charge.
