Personal Message
My name is Florence. I am a French native speaker, bilingual English/French and mother of 2. I have been living in England since 1998. I spent 11 years in central London before moving to Kent with my family in 2009.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach French (all levels, no adults) and English. I also help children prepare for their 11+ tests.
Tell me about your qualifications.
Following my French baccalaureate, I studied English to French translation theory and practice in Paris (Sorbonne Nouvelle University). After my MA, I moved to London and was able to attend many language-related seminars through my work as a lecturer.
What kind of experience do you have?
I started my career as a private tutor in 1999, then moved on to teaching evening classes for language schools in Central London.

In 2000 I started teaching general French and some more specific subjects related to the French culture and language in four different universities (Imperial, LSE, Brunel, King's).

In 2008 I decided to take a few years off to be a full-time mum. I started teaching again as a private tutor in 2012.
How much do you charge?
I charge £30/hour by blocks of 8 hours, following an initial one-hour-long first lesson. Like all tutors, I request a 24-hour notice for cancellations.
Where do you teach?
My students come to my home in Tonbridge. I have a small business called French Tutors.
When are you available?
My availabilities vary. I usually offer lessons after school until 6:30 and reserve Saturdays for intensive courses (minimum 4 hours, cancellations not refunded).
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I can teach from beginners to advanced and bilingual children: children from year 1, children taking their 11+, GCSE, A Level, International Baccalaureate and students in higher education. I do not offer conversation classes for adults.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for 11+; French Common Entrance, French GCSE, French A Level, French IB and other undergraduate courses.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I do not have a CRB certificate because I am a sole trader.
