Information About John-Paul - Hackney tutor
This is how 3 referees rated John-Paul:
Hi, I'm JP. I studied French at the University of Manchester and then took a Masters in Acting at East 15 Acting School.
I love all things French - the food, the coffee, but also the attitude, the savour-vivre, the style, the films, the literature, the plays … I worked in the City for several years as a relationship manager looking after French clients which gave me my croissant aux amandes fix in Paris on a regular basis. After 10 years I decided I wanted to be an actor and so that's where I am today. I've just filmed my first TV series in Marseille, and so France is staying close!
I've been teaching French privately and in schools for some time now. Most recently I was brought in to work with the GCSE students at Heathcote School in Chingford, and before that I worked with St Michael's Catholic College in Bermondsey. I work with students across the board from primary to A level.
My approach is to find out where you are and where you want to get to. It is then a question of breaking this down into steps and going through them.
However, it is not so prosaic as that - we will study the culture of France alongside the language, because to speak like a French person you have to think and feel like a French person! In my opinion …
