Bristol Tutor

An experienced French tutor at GCSE and A Level, I have a 1st in French (BA Hons) from Nottingham University, with a distinction in spoken language. As well as a year spent working in Paris, I have worked in French speaking West Africa and spent 4 months there at the start of the year (2017). I currently work part time for a charity and have a broad range of interests from gardening and cycling, to music and French culture (of course!).

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching French privately since April 2011. I primarily teach GCSE students, including students who struggle with French because of dyslexia. I have developed a variety of creative methods to make sure my teaching is as clear and as interesting as possible and have helped students improve their marks by up to 2 grades. I have taught to above A level standard and have a very high level of French.

At the start of 2017 I worked for two months as a supply teacher at the International School of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso). As well as private tuition and teaching I have volunteered as a mentor for young offenders. During this time I tried to find ways to teach some of the young people basic skills without them even really realising it (i.e. teaching basic arithmetic through carpentry lessons).

Tutoring Approach

I tailor teaching sessions to the needs and interests of my pupils. This influences both the content of the teaching, and teaching style. I use a range of teaching techniques and feel strongly that teaching should be fun as well as informative.

While I ensure that the material covered matches the GCSE/A Level syllabus, lessons can be tailored to other needs if the pupil is not studying for the purpose of exams.
