Private French lessons in Stoke Newington/ Dalston/ Clapton
Always wanted to speak French or just want to brush up your basics?
I’m here to help. :)
I teach any level of French, and while I like to tailor my lesson depending on student needs, they are all made with the same desire to break with formal ways of teaching; you’ll still get a bit a grammar in each lesson, but just the necessary. I believe from my own experience at learning languages at school & university and then moving to a country (Spain, then England), there’s a massive gap between what we are taught at school and the reality. That’s why I prepare my lesson with a focus on vocabulary and how it can be used in « real » situations.
All material is provided by me during the lesson and sometimes sent by email prior to a lesson.
I can teach in the comfort of your home if you’re living around Stoke Newington/ Dalston or Clapton, otherwise in a convenient Café in this area.
Thanks for reading me!
Below a few testimonials from my latest students:
My french lessons with Emilie, what more can I say than just excellent!
Emilie is such a kind patient lady and that is exactly how she is in the one on one lessons I had with her.
Taking into consideration I did not speak a word of french I felt I have learnt so much.
Due to my time contraints I was only able to do one class a week, but even with this Emilie managed the amount we could learn so well I felt each week I knew so much more.
Each lesson felt new and exciting, working over elements of the lessons that I personally struggled on mixed in with new things was great fun.
Emilie doesn't just teach you boring text book french, Emilie was able to offer me french that will help me in normal day life living in Paris, making it exciting and enjoyable to learn!
The exercises given at the end of each lessons were great, it's a great way to go over what we had learnt in the class and it allowed me to take extra time at home for it to really sink in.
Honestly Emilie is a fantastic teacher, calm, patient and knowledgeable in all ways of teaching around your abilities.
When my lessons had to finish due to work changes, Emilie even took the time to email to see how I was getting on, that is such a wonderful quality that you don't find everyday in a tutor.
Thank you Emilie for all your time and dedication teaching me, you are wonderful.
I hope to see you again soon
I was a bit nervous about learning something new that I had never done before and was delighted to find Emilie on Gumtree. She is incredibly patient yet challenges us and makes us feel comfortable throughout our weekly 1 hour lesson. The lessons are varied and interesting, making learning something new more exciting.
I would highly recommend Emilie to anyone wanting to learn French as a beginner and beyond. I'm looking forward to furthering my French skills with Emilie!
Emilie's way of teaching French is easy to follow, and she supplements it with pop culture, solid recommendations to French music/TV. She teaches conversational French you hear on the streets - not formulaic like learning from a textbook or route learning - Emilie constantly stresses the point that learning a language is about immersing yourself in its everyday style.
I learn a lot and at the same time the lessons are fun.
Really enjoyed my French lessons with Emilie and learned a lot. Her lesson plan incorporates conversation with the finer points of grammar, with an emphasis on how the French language is actually spoken. She makes learning the language enjoyable, fun even, while covering the essentials.
