Hello. Bonjour! I am a French native qualified teacher . I taught in France until 2010 when my English wife and I moved to Southampton.
I have been teaching for over 17 years and am passionate about tutoring students, watching their progress and achievements. I am friendly and approachable and I really enjoy teaching French and preparing the lessons for each student. I now concentrate on teaching one to one, with occasional days in Secondary schools. I have a proven record of success with students taking their GCSE and A level papers, degree students and adults learning for pleasure/travel or business.
Qualified teacher working also as Head of Department in Secondary schools and colleges in France for 10 Years
Tutoring for over 7 years in England to children and adults in French. I teach all levels from complete beginners to post degree students. I work with students studying for their GSCE, A level and higher. Also for business and holidays.
I have been awarded Qualified Teacher Status by the English General Teaching Council.
During the first meeting I discuss with the students their aims and goals - only then can I prepare the correct work for them. There is no charge for this meeting.
I know that students benefit learning with a Native French speaker, ensuring the correct pronunciation.
I am very patient and work at the pace that is comfortable for the student, whilst ensuring they progress well.
I write individual programes for each student where appropriate ; in conversational French I use their own situations and personal requirements in exercises. I am used to the curriculum and requirements for GCSE, A and AS leveIs.
I tutor students in their home, place of business, school or university.
I also teach students on Skype.

We could not have wished for a better Tutor. Francois is exactly the [erson we were seeking.
my pronunciation and understanding of all aspects of French. He provides clear, intuitive worksheets to my ability and his customised computer files always work and are well prepared. I thoroughly recommend him as a tutor for GCSE.
Weekly lessons have no doubt improved our speaking and understanding, and made us very aware of our specific needs in improving our skills.
Learning with Francois has so far been extremely enjoyable, good humoured, and also quite taxing.
He also provided the correct paper work.
