Mireille

Edinburgh Tutor

I am a life-long native French speaker with over 26 years of experience with the language and the country.
I am currently working on my MSc in environmental sustainability at the University of Edinburgh. I also work part time as an assistant project supervisor at Ipsos Mori in the Leith area and volunteer at the Edinburgh Remakery.
Because I tend to keep busy I have developed excellent time management skills, am extremely organized, reliable, and responsible. I am often praised at work for my attention to detail and my willingness to help others.

Tutoring Experience

I was recently promoted at Ipsos Mori to assistant project supervisor--this has given me a huge boost in my teaching experience. A big part of my job is teaching employees how to the job correctly; I do this through one on one conversations where I go into detail about the job, using my own experience as reference in order to come off as relatable and approachable. As a result many employees feel comfortable approaching me with a range of questions because they know I am a good listener and communicator and can take a creative approach to solving the problem.
Other than this promotion, I have little experience in tutoring. I did dabble in it briefly during undergrad helping working professionals improve their conversational French but soon had to stop doing that as my course workload was proving to be quite demanding.

Tutoring Approach

I'd like to approach tutoring by understanding where you're struggling, we can have a conversation about this and this will help me decide the best way to help you. I also like to know what you're studying; what books you're using for school or what the specific theme is--since I am a French tutor, it would be useful for me to know if you're working on grammar or sentence structure, reading, or general conversational French and in what areas exactly you are having issues or need extra help this way I can prepare and meet with you fully ready to help.
