I am an Oxford graduate with over eighteen years' teaching experience. I can help you to improve your French, whether you are a beginner, adult learner, studying for GCSE or A level, or are preparing for Oxbridge entry tests. I also teach English language and literature to GCSE, and English literature to A level. I will show you how to express yourself clearly and with confidence when writing creatively or commenting on poetry or prose. Lessons will ideally take place at my house or over Skype, but I may be able to travel to you if necessary. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
I taught full time in secondary education from 1996 to 2011 and since then have been tutoring French and English privately. As a tutor, I have taught both French and English to GCSE and A level, and French to Oxbridge entrance, as well as helping younger pupils and adult learners who were not preparing for a qualification. In 2014 all of my exam candidates gained at least an A grade in their GCSE/AS/A-level.
One-to-one lessons provide the opportunity to focus on areas of particular concern or interest. I am keen, therefore, to make sure that pupils explain what aspects of French or English they would like to cover so that sessions can be tailored to their specific needs. Lessons are interactive and supported by appropriate notes/study materials. Where required, homework can be set to promote continuity.
