City of London Tutor

I am a native French speaker and I hold a MSc in Economics (Hons.) from a French University as well as a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) in French from Goldsmiths College, University of London.

I am an enthusiastic and creative person who is passionate about learning. As well as a very committed teacher I am a dedicated learner who is constantly in search of knowledge to self improve and to bring the best of my students.

Identified by a recent OFSTED inspector as someone who is ‘A very good enthusiastic teacher – bordering on Outstanding and who is inclusive while lifting her class up using good learning progression. Therese leads her class with the target language throughout and manages to hold the classes attention’ (March 2011).

Commended by a Lewisham school’s Language consultant for ‘delivering lessons effectively through good balance of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills holding students’ attention’.

Tutoring Experience

Over 8 years experience as a French teacher ranging from Primary to Secondary Inner London State schools as well as Adults Learning Centres. I am familiar with National Curriculum requirements and I developed expertise in all aspects of teaching – from thorough differentiated lesson planning, designing own teaching material and marking.

I am now working as a part-time French teacher in an OFSTED -rated as outstanding school in Tower Hamlets.

Tutoring Approach

Being a native French speaker I have an in-depth knowledge of the language, its pronunciation and experience of the country.

With an excellent knowledge of French grammar, I cater for the needs of those students who are interested in the language but also its mechanics.

Having taught French to a wide range of students I can plan my lessons creatively to engage all learners regardless of their ability and age.
