Swansea Tutor

I am a French native speaker and experienced French teacher. I have taught widely at various levels for over 20 years. I enjoy seeing students grow and gain confidence as they progress. I love sharing my knowledge and expertise of the French language and culture.

Tutoring Experience

I have trained as a secondary education French teacher in Swansea University and I have lived and worked around Swansea for 24 years. I have been teaching adult French classes from beginners to advanced level in the Department of Adult Continuing Education in Swansea University since 1997. I have also taught translation classes and Languages for All classes at undergraduate level in the French department in Swansea University. I have tutored students privately to prepare for A levels examination with very good results.

Tutoring Approach

I am friendly and supportive of the difficulties the learner might encounter. I believe it is very important to build confidence in oneself when learning a foreign language. The tuitions are tailored to the learner's needs. I create a safe learning environment where the learner is comfortable to take risks. I have a communicative approach to language learning and I also work on grammatical and lexical accuracy.
