Information About Laurent - Poole tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Laurent:
I am a French national who has been living and working in the UK on and off since 1994 and permanently since 2001.
I have spent all of my working life in various industry sectors (plate glass processing, power generation, electronics… ) mainly in Customer Support, dealing with UK and International customers on a daily basis on the phone, by email and devising and translating technical documents and procedures. So communicating in English and/or in French is no concern to me whether in person or in writing.
In 2012 I decided to share my knowledge of the French language and my communication skills mainly through teaching, and started my own company to offer French and English tuition and translation services.
I have only been tutoring since early 2012, but am preparing a DAEFLE (equivalent to TEFL for French tutors) in parallel to teaching.
I favour one-to-one or small group home tuition to concentrate on the tutees needs. I use interactive material, games, and sole use of the French language as much as possible. I will adapt to the tutee's requirement but tend to use proven methods like Hachette's Taxi series when a structured course is required.
