Personal Description:

I am a native French speaker with 14 years of teaching and tutoring experience of all age groups in London.

Prior to teaching, I was a graphic designer with experience in creative and commercial environments working largely with childrens’ products both In France and in England.

I am mature, methodical and approachable with an excellent knowledge of French culture including literature, arts and current affairs. I have a passion for my mother tongue and enjoy sharing it with others. My success in bringing up a son who is truly bilingual is also a testimony to my ability to teach/support young children in their learning of a language.

Tutoring Experience:

• For the last 14 years I have taught small groups of GCSE, (I)GCSE, AS/A level pupils and large classrooms of years 7 and 9 (SATS) in the French department of the highly competitive Notting Hill & Ealing High School for girls in West London.

• Work experience with all following exams boards (OCR/ Cambridge/ Welsh board/ Edexcel and AQA)

• Successfully tutor boys and girls, on a one-to-one basis, from highly academic independent schools in London (Latymer, St. Paul’s, Merchant Taylors).

• Provide support for pupils for entrance examinations to Harrow, Eton and Westminster.

• Give conversational lessons to adults who are preparing for life in France.

• Help French natives of school age in their education of all subjects in the French curriculum.

• Can give support to Undergraduate and Postgraduates in French Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach follows a simple French recipe;

• One-to-one is best with attention to individual needs;
• Take some hard facts on grammar and cut them into small bites;
• Sprinkle with lots of new words;
• Use a handful of visuals, preferably with colour;
• Add 2 ‘tablespoons’ of praise and encouragement;
• Mix in several teaspoons of exam practice;
• Add a pinch of humour and laughter;
• Drizzle with enthusiasm;
• Stir it all slowly, with patience, to help create a confident pupil, able to progress at his/her own rhythm to achieve his/her own potential
Et voila!
