About Nicolas

Professional French tutor in London high profile families

Dear students,

I am back on Tutorfair!!

I am Nicolas, a professional and successful native French tutor/Cambridge Celta teacher providing tuitions in high profile households as well as offices in London.

_25 years experience.

I have helped students across London, the UK and internationally, achieve the results they need in entrance exams, public exams or catching up with their peers by tailoring my teaching to their needs . I encourage children’s curiosity and aim to take their learning beyond just the text books.I have relevant and up to date resources.

Alongside tutoring at different levels, I also cater for adult and professional learners.

Please make sure that you understand how the site works!
I am not getting paid 65.00 pounds an hour.(But half of it).Under my fees, it would not be tutoring professionally and would not be worthwhile.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks.

Nicolas

To whom it may concern,
I am currently studying my French degree and needed some help for my 2nd year core language and oral exams in which I struggled very much. I did very badly (20%) in my core language and similarly in the oral exam. I had around 1-2 weeks of sessions with Nicolas and I could not have asked for more. We did a few past papers. And even though we did not know what was likely to come up in the exam, he was very good at helping me pinpoint the important information in a passage and how to respond to the questions. Similarly with the oral part, he kept me on my toes by always speaking to me in French at the beginning of the sessions and throughout which was very helpful and providing me with core info of which I needed to speak about in the oral. As a result I received 30-40% more in my retakes. He is a very friendly man with lots of energy and wants to make sure you can be the best you can be. Thank you Nicolas.

To whom it may concern,

We were looking for a sympathetic, engaging tutor for our boy, just starting at GCSE level, to help him properly grasp the basics and develop his confidence. Nicolas has been a fantastic tutor, professional, well-organised, positive and always prepared to do that little bit extra. His bright and welcoming manner means that our boy warmed to him immediately, and already has a much more positive attitude towards French. Nicolas is very well-organised, with plenty of work material, a clear plan for developing the student`s knowledge and ability and a seriousness of purpose, while the lessons are conducted with an enthusiasm and positivity that is quite infectious. Highly recommended.

To whom it may concern,

I find Nicolas to be an outstanding tutor. He was able to assess and tailor our time according to my learning needs. He provides me with information that is presented, reinforced and applied throughout all our sessions and adjusts lessons to address weaknesses or issues which have helped to improve my confidence in French. Nicolas is a positive, kind and energetic tutor that is passionate about helping his students achieve their goals. I recommend him highly.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

Nicolas is an excellent tutor. He helped my son with preparation to the Westminster challenge exam for 5 months. My son really enjoyed the lessons. Nicolas is a very responsible tutor who does his best to organize interesting lessons. My son got A at Westminster challenge exam.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

Nicolas has been our son`s French tutor for the last 9 months.We were looking for a tutor who could focus on Common Entrance 13+ exam preparation, working on speaking, grammar and writing .
I strongly recommend him as a teacher.
He prepares his lessons, and teaches with great enthusiam.
My son, who attended Wetherby School in London,did not like and was not good at French at school and from the moment Nicolas started to teach him his view and understanding of French changed.
He is now on top of his class and loves french and this is all thanks to Nicolas.

I would like to recommend Nicolas as a French tutor for your organisation or family.
Nicolas worked with us in London three days per week, as a French tutor. (We moved to the U.S. when the employment ended.) Nicolas took full responsibility for our two boys for three days per week.
His main focus was on tutoring and educating the boys in French. He spoke only French to them, allowing the boys to be fully immersed in the language. The activities allowed them to develop their French (both boys fully comprehend French conversation now and can speak), . Nicolas’s energizing and interactive techniques were fun for the boys, and they engaged in the language quickly.
The boys loved their time with Nicolas . His tutoring techniques are excellent for young children..
Nicolas is dependable, caring, and trustworthy. I would fully recommend him as a French tutor for your children.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have been fortunate enough to have Nicolas as my French tutor. Having only 2 months to learn French before moving to Paris, Nicolas planned the course really well and I came out of it feeling ready to face the real French people. Nicolas is organized and very pleasant to be around. He is so helpful even if it is something, which is not related to the lesson. Nicolas adapted the lesson to my needs and plans the lessons every time beforehand. The material he uses to teach is quality and his approach in teaching is very easy to understand. I would highly recommend Nicolas to tutor French at any level.
