Information About Elina - Cardiff tutor
My name is Elina, I am a 21 year old native French speaker currently based in Cardiff. I am from Brive-la-Gaillarde, a little French town in the middle of the country.
Patient and attentive, I can adapt myself to every type of pupil and personality. I passed the French A-level in literature 4 years ago and got the English Bachelor's arts degree in June 2013 (French equivalent).
As I want to be a French teacher in an English speaking country when I get all the necessary diplomas, I am keen on starting by private tuitions and am very motivated.
In 2012, I had the opportunity to give English lessons to a 13 year old French pupil. He wanted to improve his level in order to pass the English French "Brevet" (similar to the GCSE).
I am currently working as a Foreign Language Assistant in Radyr Comprehensive School (Cardiff), since October the 1st 2013. I give lessons to beginners, average pupils and bi-lingual ones from Y8 to Y13. I am used to creating exercices that fit with the student's level. Thanks to these different levels, I can easily deal with several topics ( politics, leisure, environment, etc … ) and target several skill fields such as the comprehension, the writing and the pronunciation's ones using numerous materials (media, newpapers, musics, films, caricatures and so on).
I can see everyday how much GCSE and A-level pupils can be worried about French exams. That is the reason why, my main aim is to create a funny and calm atmosphere in order to make this language much more easier to learn. As an English learner, I am capable to know the best ways to get used to a foreign language and to learn it sometimes without realising it.
