Personal Description:

I am the CEO of an electronics company and an Engineering graduate who has lived and worked in France. Before going to live in France I had a working knowledge of French starting with GCE "O" level and some formal tuition as an adult as well as many visits for work and pleasure. During my 5 year stay I took some formal instruction as well as living and working with the language. On returning to the UK I then udertook a course of study with the Allinace Française culiminating in a degree level qualification (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française).

Tutoring Experience:

As a Naval Officer on submarines I taught maths and physics to GCSE "O" level standard. More recently I have undertaken tutoring of adults and children in French language skills, particularly spoken and conversational.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning shold be fun. In particular languages, which are a medium for communication, should be learnt in a living way. Relevance to everyday life provides a more interesting learning experience and as a reluctant French student whilst at school I understand fully the need for the language to be taught in a stimulating and easily retained way.
