Patient, flexible and dedicated French native speaker

I am a very patient and dedicated French native speaker. I tailor my lessons to the students` needs and expectations. Tutoring is not just guiding students through their learning but also giving them confidence and enabling them to experience lessons in a relaxed, friendly, and yet serious way.

I have been a teacher for over 10 years and have a very diverse experience as I have been working in an Alliance française in Mexico, a language centre, two adult education centres and two tutoring agencies. My first teaching experience was as a language assistant in Preston, Lancashire. I have had students ranging from 7 years old to 70+, from absolute beginners to advanced levels. I`ve given private and group classes and intensive courses (up to 7h a day). I have over 4500 teaching hours, including more than 3200 hours of private tuition (basically in French Literature, French and English as Foreign Languages; 2500 of which in the UK).

Coming from France where I taught French Literature to a student preparing a diploma in Accounting, I have now been in London for four and a half years. I am occasionally in charge of groups of beginner students in a language school. At the moment, I give French private tuition (self-employed as well as through a tutoring agency) for the preparation of GCSE and IGCSE, DALF C1, CNED CE1 and CM2 (French school curriculum, distance learning) and university essay writing. I also tutor other students looking to learn or improve their French communication skills for personal reasons.

I teach French and can also teach methodology (including essay writing) and primary school subjects to students following the French curriculum (such as CNED ̶ distance learning).

I am available 7 days a week, at whatever time is convenient for the students.

Whether you are a student taking GCSE or A levels in French and need confidence for your exam or you are a professional willing to have a proper conversation with your French colleagues or clients, or just want to enjoy your next holidays in a French-speaking country, whether on a daily basis or intensive classes, we will first talk about what YOU are looking for and how I will help you to achieve your language goals.

French classes with Sophie

I had weekly French classes with Sophie for 1.5 years. She was very friendly and easy to get on with. Lessons were structured to my individual needs and I found it to be very good value for money.

Sophie Garcia

Sophie has been tutoring my two children for several years on a weekly basis. She is a fantastic tutor and a lovely person. Sophie has a calm and gentle approach to teaching and makes her lessons varied and interesting. She has helped both my children to academic success in French, my son achieved A* at GCSE and he is now studying French for A level. My daughter has yet to take her GCSEs but she achieved high marks in her Common Entrance exam. They both look forward to their sessions with Sophie and she has instilled in them a great love of the French language and culture.

Excellent French tutor!

Sophie was the first tutor I contacted when I decided to refresh my French, and as luck would have it I didn't need to look any further. She has all the qualities that go to make up an excellent tutor - she's patient, thorough, reliable, flexible, has an incredible command of the English language (more so than most English people!) as well as, of course, her native French, and is very easy to get along with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anybody.
Subject:

An improved appreciation of the language and greater conversational fluency.
