About Alda

Friendly, Experienced and dedicated French Tutor

Hi, Bonjour,

I'm Alda, a BA honours French graduate

(Now available full time)

I am a very friendly and approachable French tutor who loves to help others learn French at any experience level. Whether you are just starting out with French or are studying for your final exams and have a specific problem area, I can help you to progress as quickly as possible.

France and the beautiful French language have been a passion for me over many years and led me to complete my degree in French and International Relations. Whilst studying I spent a year teaching in France where I was able to gain experience in language teaching techniques. I have continued developing my language skills into my professional life and currently work as a full time tutor.

I am extremely motivated by helping others to achieve the very best results and this gives me a great satisfaction. I've been tutoring on an ad-hoc basis both during and since leaving university and am confident teaching the syllabus for all major exam boards. I take pride in being well prepared so that I can ensure my clients get the most from each session.

The way I like to tutor is to discuss with you what you are aiming to achieve and in what timescale - this allows me to plan bespoke lessons which will provide the most value to you in the time we work together.

Outside of tutoring I love to spend time travelling and exploring new cultures. I am also a keen sportsperson and enjoy training at the gym for events such as half marathons. Apart from this I would probably choose to spend my time reading and listening to Jazz!

I'm available in the during the day/evenings and on weekends for tutoring in person or via skype and am happy to travel by car from my home in North London.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Highly recommended French tutor

Written by Gjystina S
I would highly recommend Alda as a French tutor. She is very professional, knowledgeable and understanding of my needs. She was able to help me achieve the goals I had set for myself in learning French. She has a very clear accent and a deep knowledge of French grammar. She was also able to help me perfect the French accent which I was one of my main goals.

Alda is very organized and was able to help me set up a learning program in which we adhered to during our lessons. This program clarified the learning process for me and helped me progress independently.

Alda is very energetic, friendly personality and easy to get on with. She clearly has a passion for French so is very enthusiastic in her teaching. She is a good listener and was able to pick up many of my problem areas in order to help me improve.

Excellent tutor

Written by Kieran G
Alda has been great, exactly what you want in a tutor: friendly, very knowledgeable, encouraging and enthusiastic.

I am not studying for an exam or fixed agenda and my lessons have been judged perfectly for my pace and how I like to learn.

I am growing in confidence all the time. I am particularly pleased with my pronunciation and confidence in speaking which I have always found the trickiest thing.

I would highly recommend Alda.

Alda has being tutoring my son just over a year now, i can see him becoming more confident in his French work. I was really worried about he would do in his exams but Alda has really helped to work on his main weaknesses, focusing mainly on his reading and speaking.
