Personal Message
I am an enthusiastic, professional, creative and highly trained French Language teacher (UK-QTS) offering lessons designated to be effective and stimulating for all types of learners.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach French as a foreign language. I have 12 years of experience in preparing students for exams (GCSE, DELF/DALF, SORBONNE and University exams) with an outstanding rate of success. I have attended a series of high quality seminars on different learning styles and I am keen and able to adapt lessons to the students’ needs and targets. I can also use dyslexia friendly approaches. I am committed to seeing a pupil through exams and I use a variety of resources and a wide range of activities. All lessons are conducted in French. The students are encouraged to use French as much as possible and to enjoy learning by discovering more about France through cultural and social issues. Lessons are focused on the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing according to the students’ personal and/or professional objectives. Lessons are supported by grammar activities in order to build strong foundations. In addition, a very high level of feedback is provided. Exclusive attention enable you to make quick progress and to feel confident to understand, speak and write French. I also teach French through arts, appealing to everybody interested to focus on music, theatre, cinema or gastronomy. Business language training is designated for those who want better employment opportunities by taking a professional exam.
