I qualified as a Teacher of French in 2010 and have been employed as a French teacher at various schools in London and Hertfordshire since then, mainly teaching GCSE and AS/A Level exam classes. I have tutored KS3-5 students as well as some adults since 2011.
My approach to tuition is very much dependent on the needs of the individual. If you are preparing for GCSE or A Level French exams, I will firstly identify the areas that need most help and focus on these. Of course, subject knowledge is extremely valuable but confidence in your exam technique is immeasurable as so many students are unable to apply their knowledge to the exam questions.
If you are a beginner or taking up French tuition as a hobby, an equal amount of attention is given to all 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and basic grammar is key. Learning the structure of the language and having a good grasp of the basics will allow you to make more progress in the long-term and become more confident in French.
I am friendly, personable and patient in my approach to tutoring. With only you to focus on, we can try a variety of different teaching techniques to ensure that I am effective in teaching you a specific topic.
