Enjoyable confidence building
I participated in weekly small group tutoring sessions for a few months with Alison to improve my French. I had been learning French on and off for a couple of years but was still very much at a beginner level. Thanks to Alison's expert and enjoyable tutoring I easily progressed to a reasonable intermediate level and now feel confident to use my French in a practical situation and inspired to continue learning. Needless to say, I wholeheartedly recommend Alison!
Confidence speaking French at a reasonable level in a practical situation.
Alison is a very thoughtful and insightful tutor. She listens to your wants and needs for a learning environment, then adapts her style accordingly to ensure that you get the most out of your time. She uses a variety of techniques (including flash cards, textbook studies, films and general conversations), which helps you to improve upon your skills and build a good foundation for future independent learning. Most importantly, she builds up your confidence for you to feel able to use your language skills. A high level of knowledge in grammar and culture, Alison is a great choice for a tutor.
I went from having a theoretical knowledge of French, to being able to confidently speak in a conversation. I was reminded that there is always more than one way to practice your skills.
