I am a native French speaker, fully qualified teacher with an MA in English and a PGCE in French/English as a foreign language.
I have over twenty years experience of teaching languages (mostly French and Spanish) in British schools to pupils of all ages and abilities with an excellent results record. Since 2000 I have also been teaching Business French to adults in a number of large organisations as well as continuing with private tutoring to adults and pupils. I can offer General, Recreational and Business French tuition at all levels and prepare students for external examinations. Having initially learnt English formally as a foreign language myself I believe I am particularly well equipped to help students with their acquisition of English as a foreign or second language.
I use a wide range of supporting materials to suit a variety of learning styles and aim to optimise an active participation from my students during their tuition. I believe learning should always be an enjoyable experience but I also insist on maximum effort so that progress is immediately noticeable.
