Merton Tutor

I am a French national with a Masters Degree in Modern Languages from the Sorbonne University in Paris. Since 1990 I have taught French and Italian to students at primary, secondary and university level in Paris, Milan and London, covering both language and literature.

I know the technique to achieve the best results at exams. My unique approach has been recognised by the Times Educational Supplement. I train teachers and my method is used in schools in the UK. Just look at my publications on amazon.co.uk or Brilliant Publications.

I give private tuition to children and adults and I successfully prepare my students for the following exams: Common Entrance / GCSE / IGCSE / A Level / IB.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that a foreign language can be remembered and mastered by students if they use memory tricks and idea association. That’s why I created my own innovative way of teaching as presented in my books published by Brilliant Publications and supplied on Amazon.

Here are some examples:

  • cacher = to hide (Memory trick: imagine you hide your cash and cash reminds us of cacher).

  • cher = expensive (Memory trick: when something is expensive we want to share the expense).

  • pendant = during (Memory trick: in the word ‘during’ there is ‘ring’. However, the French word use a different piece of jewellery: pendant)
