Bonjour! My name is Samantha and I am from Bordeaux, a region famous for its wine. I am a qualified and experienced teacher. I have been living in the UK for many years and, after working in different roles in the educational system, I decided to undertake a French teaching qualification. The course was really stimulating and learning about pedagogy was particularly interesting. I have enjoyed teaching ever since.

Tutoring Experience

I have experience of teaching on a one to one basis as well as small groups. I am very familiar with the curriculum for French GCSE and A Level. I also teach University students who have French as a major or as a minor subject. All my students obtain excellent results at their exams. I focus a lot on speaking and grammar.
I have experience teaching general French and French for tourism to adults together with French culture, which is crucial when learning a language.
During my lessons, I use different materials such as videos, images, magazines, films, music and the latest course books as well as my own creations.

Tutoring Approach

I am a qualified and experienced native French teacher. I provide a relaxed atmosphere which allows students to ask questions and I tailor lessons to what students require. I respect each students’ pace of work and way of learning.

I empathize with my students because I had to learn English myself. Therefore, I know it can be difficult to learn a foreign language and even frustrating at times but also very rewarding. That is why, I make students aware of their progress on a regular basis.
I love teaching and I have had some very good feedback from my students. I am a friendly, patient and approachable person.
I would be happy to answer any questions, so do not hesitate to contact me.
