About Julie

French native teacher offers tailored lessons

French native teacher, fully qualified as I hold a Master's degree in Teaching French as a Foreign Language, I would be glad to help you. I am experienced in one-to-one and groups classes. I previously taught in France, in a private school for adults and teenagers, and in Mexico at university.

I've been tutoring in London for more than 4 years. I teach General French and Business French. I also prepare students for exams such as DELF/DALF, GCSE and A-Level.

I also use diverse learning material documents to maintain the students’ interest at a high level: textbooks, magazine and newspaper articles, videos and radio programs. My lessons are engaging to keep the students involved in their learning process.

Please, don't hesitate to contact me for more details or references. We will define your level and your needs together.

French tutor

Written by Fabien E
I have known Julie for about 3 years in my capacity as Director and Owner at Parlance Language School ltd.
Julie has been working for Parlance Language School as a freelance French tutor since 2013. 
At Parlance Language School, we provide bespoke language tuition for schools, businesses and private individuals. We provide tuition in 5 European languages, as well as Asian and Eastern languages. All our tutor are fully qualified and are recruited on a freelance basis.
Since registering with Parlance language school, Julie has always met the high standard one-to-one tutoring. All our clients have provided excellent feedback for her and are very happy with her lessons. 
Julie has a number of strengths to offer. She is very professional and her lessons have been always well-planned thanks to her excellent organisation skills. She provides well-tailored tuition from a technical but also human point of view. She can always connect really well with various types of personalities.
I would highly recommend Julie as a French tutor and I am convinced that she will be a superior addition to your school.

Amazing French Teacher

Written by Shanci Z
I had weekly 2hr personal lessons with Julie for 2.5 years. The lessons were always well adapted to my progress and weaknesses. Julie also made sure to focus the discussions/homework around subjects which interested me to keep me motivated. She also has a lovely personality which made the 1-1 lessons very pleasant. I cannot recommend her more.
I am now able to read and write at an intermediate level, and am comfortable conversing in French in a social context.

Fabulous Tutor

Written by Mark G
Julie was my tutor once a week for almost 3 years. Starting as almost a complete beginner, against the odds she diligently and patiently built up my vocabulary, grammar, and general conversational French to a standard where I now feel confident speaking in French when travelling there, and in many situations. Julie is an extremely patient teacher; an attribute that was tested to the extreme by my a slow learner such as myself! She gives clear instructions, her approach is easy to follow; I always felt at ease and comfortable by her relaxed, friendly manner - all attributes I found extremely helpful in a learning environment. In short, Julie is a delight and I couldn't recommend her more highly.
Standard improved from Beginner to Intermediate Conversational French.

Excellent French tutor for all levels

Written by Alexandra D
I have a good base level of French and Julie was able to help me focus in on the areas I needed to improve on the most. I think she is wonderful for all levels of French as she finds a programme that suits your learning objectives. Also she is very nice, reliable, fun to work with and overall is a great tutor!
My French improved and I now how more confidence when speaking French.

GCSE Tuition

Written by Michele R
Julie helped my son out with his French GCSE when he needed help with his written composition and oral examination. Julie was a punctual and reliable teacher who was patient and caring. Although we only had 3 sessions my son's pronunciation improved dramatically and the standard of his essay improved. He narrowly missed an A in his GCSE but this was still a good result for him.

Fantastic French Tutor

Written by Alison C
Julie is an excellent tutor. I had French conversation lessons with her for over two years. Each week we discussed different topics, covering a wide variety of subject areas, from literature to politics. This was brilliant for improving my vocabulary. She was always very well-prepared and we used a range of interesting articles, radio programmes and news reports to stimulate discussion.

She is extremely supportive, friendly, reliable and enthusiastic. My french has improved hugely as a result of my lessons with her.
I would not hesitate to recommend Julie as a language tutor.

Amazing tutor

Written by Yan Yan L
Julie was a great French teacher, she has been my tutor for 2 years. I'm a manger of a boutique and hardly have any time to learn a new language. She is paitent, professional and fun. My French has improved so much over the years, thank you to Julie made me realised it's never too late to learn a new language; important it's to have a great teacher!
Highly recommend! I understand most of the French conversations now!

Brilliant French Teacher

Written by Luciana S
I have been studying with Julie for 1 year and half, starting from no knowledge of French. I needed to work on a full immersion programme, because I was moving into a French Bank and needed to use business french in order to effectively communicate with the internal teams.
Julie is a brilliant teacher and applies a very useful method in order to learn very quickly. Also it is fun to study with her.

One of Julie's greatest assets is her creativity. She engages her students in unique ways and makes education fun for them. She is an energetic but respected educator that can be a great part of any community.

Today my level is intermediate and I can understand, speak and write French very naturally.
