I am a committed and enthusiastic French teacher who has been teaching for 25 years and I enjoy passing on my knowledge of the subject to my students and to encourage them to see that it is not too difficult to acquire another language and that it is essential to have some acquaintance of a language when seeking career progression.
I know that students enjoy the lessons and aim to make them interesting by introducing fun elements and, where appropriate, relevant news items and cultural references. The younger students enjoy quizzes and colouring pictures while acquiring vocabulary and the older ones may prefer to discuss topics of current interest.
I have a varied experience and whilst most of my students require help with 13+ exam entrance to local public schools, GCSE and A Level preparation, I have also taught adult casual learners, pre-school children and university students who are preparing MA theses.
I have worked for various tuition agencies but most of my work has come through personal recommendation. I have also worked with small groups in a private tuition centre.
