About Celine

French personal tutor - All levels


I'm Celine, an enthousiastic private French tutor with 3 years of experience within the language tutoring, having taught individuals and small classes. Originally from a marketing and communication background in France, when I moved to UK 4 years ago, I started thinking of teaching languages. I have used every opportunity to become more fluent at English and haven't always found supportive the teachers or schools. It made me think about pedagogy and how could I be involved in the education system for the better.

Here we are, I now teach up to 10 students of all age groups and I am looking to expand my skills. At the start of this year, I enrolled on to a ‘DAEFLE’ course with the CNED, a French organisation which accommodates distance learning in ‘Teaching French as a Foreign Language’. I’m expecting a test in December which I feel very comfortable and confident towards.

Whether you are looking to pick up a bit of French for your extras, travels etc… or you are wanting to improve for precise purposes: exams, work, projects, feel free to get in touch! I’m up for meeting weekly or one off basis.

My methods vary depending on your needs and personalities, we will focus on different skills from speaking to reading, listening and writing/grammar. I have my own worksheets as well as resources from French libraries and internet (theatre scripts, poems, songs, articles from newpapers). I am dedicated to make a skill progression plan with you at the beginning of our learning journey together and clearly understand where we are at while making it clear and smooth.

Expect fun and rewards along the way!
I’m looking forward to hearing from you and thank you for your time.

All the best

Great Teacher

Written by Rosie B
Celine is a fantastic teacher, patient and great at explaining things. She is relaxed and friendly, while making sure I'm working hard! Very flexible and a joy to work with.
I recommend her, thumbs up!

Very Engaging Teacher

Written by Ivan B
Celine is a very flexible and engaging French teacher. She smoothly adapts herself and her lessons to match your goals and your style (I, for one, do not like to spend a lot of time on grammar). She is a powerhouse of ideas, and brings a lot of interesting activities to enhance the learning experience. She has a contagious enthusiasm, too. I would definitely recommend here.
I had some shallow knowledge of French, and I took classes to improve my fluency and my vocabulary. I have been studying with here for nearly one and a half year.

Celine the best French teacher

Written by Barbara C
I strongly recommend Celine as a French teacher because she is very passionate about her job and she shows enormous patience especially with beginners.
She always finds ways to make the lessons interesting, using many different tools and media to keep the attention high.
Definitely recommend as a French teacher

Great, thank you Celine!

Written by Rosie N
I had a week of tutoring with Celine (6 sessions in total) with the goal of giving my French a good boost. It was definitely very helpful - we used some textbooks and worked through exercises together, but probably even more helpful was just having general conversation in French. Celine is very friendly, clearly an experienced tutor and I enjoyed the lessons. Celine gave me homework in between lessons (as requested) which she then reviewed. This is the first time I have had a tutor and I found it much more useful and intensive than being in a classroom.

Good boost to my French, learnt a lot and know the areas I need to work on in the longer term.
