English (Foreign Language)
I am passionate about languages and I love teaching! I am a native speaker of French, educated in France and Scotland, well informed about curriculum and exam requirements and I also have experience in teaching adults wanting to learn a language for pleasure or for work reasons.
I have an MA 1st Class Degree in English and French Literature and Philosophy, a Modern Languages PGCE, have taught for a number of years in secondary schools, at University level and I have been a tutor for the past five years.
I enjoy tutoring on a one to one basis, so that I can get to know the student and help them to the best of their abilities, I try to build up their confidence and enjoyment of the subject, I have had the most rewarding time with my tutees and I am pleased to say that they have all done very well in their exams.

You are also the neatest note taker I have ever met!! I am learning from you on that score! :)
I look forward to our future lessons!
Merci Hélène pour ton aide!
Je te remercie infiniment de ces remarques élogieuses! Tu es bien sûr que c'est moi DONT tu parles?!!:)
As always though, I must return the compliment back to you because your obvious enjoyment of the French language, your willingness to learn from your mistakes and your ability not to be fazed by complexities of grammar and vocabulary, are all qualities which are essential in order to be a "good language learner", so that my task as a teacher.is so facilitated and very enjoyable indeed!
Continue à cultiver ces excellentes qualités, Cesare, ce DONT je ne doute pas!
I am happy that we've met too!
Hélène is an excellent teacher - very encouraging and thorough - and post-lesson has sent me extremely helpful extra materials, which I really appreciate.
I will definitely try and organise another lesson in the future when I'm back home!
She greatly understands her students and goes above and beyond her role as a tutor. I was provided extra materials and references that aided my french progression.
Overall I have been very happy with Hélène and look forward to my move to France with my new level of french.
