Personal Description:

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 Experience:

French and Italian language teacher:
- Tuition for primary/Common Entrance/GCSE/IGCSE/A-Level students (various examination boards: mostly Edexcel and AQA)
- Courses for companies including Goldman Sachs, Sony, Ubisoft and ICL
- Italian teacher at Wimbledon High School
- French evening classes at West Norwood Adult Education Centre
-Taught Italian to GCSE students at Wimbledon High School for two years.
-Established a new French club for primary children at Park Community School in Morden.
-Examiner for the Baccalaureate in France

Teacher Trainer for primary and secondary teachers.

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)
