Born and raised in France, Normandy, I have been living in the UK since 2012.
I am an experienced tutor with a proven track record in helping students with homework and exam preparation across all levels (GCSE, iGCSE, A-LEVEL, IB, DELF).
I teach French from complete beginners through to A-Level, with children, teenagers and young adults ranging from 5 to 17 years old. I methodically prepare for every lesson and tailor sessions to the needs and interests of my students and I am passionate about assisting students achieve their full potential.
I started tutoring English and German alongside university from 2009, with students ranging from 10 to 20 years old. After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Foreign Applied Languages and a successful first work experience in the UK, I became a teaching assistant in a secondary school and was in charge of students from Y7 to Y12 for 2 years. Well settled in the UK and familiar with different curricula, I starting tutoring French.
I was also part of the administration and examination department in the same school for over 3 years and was involved in the running of exams. I have experience providing help and support to special needs students and I could develop a good understanding and knowledge of various examination boards.
I have been teaching French in a primary school on Saturday mornings with pupils aged 5 to 10 since 2015 and I have been tutoring students aged 9 to 17 in preparation for various French exams for the past 5 years. I am familiar with the new GCSE/A-LEVEL curricula.
Aside from teaching and tutoring, my interests include music, art, theatre, travelling and language learning.
Any questions, feel free to message me, I answer all queries :-)
Sullivan has been an extremely engaged and engaging French tutor to our 14 year old son who was not particularity keen on French. His lessons have been varied and have drawn on different resources offering a lot of opportunity for consolidation and practice. He has also challenged our son's French skills extending them occasionally into uncharted territory and allowing him to experiment with the language.
Sullivan tutored my daughter, helping her to prepare for GCSE French. Sullivan is a French national who speaks excellent English and we were very impressed with every aspect of his tutoring. His is reliable and punctual and prepared to travel some distance to tutoring locations. He has a calm nature and is a good listener and communicator. Sullivan is always well organised for lessons with worksheets and audio activities. He has an excellent knowledge of the French and the English language and is passionate about teaching. His lessons were always well prepared and considered and were appropriate to need. Sullivan will find out what his student knows already and then build a suitable scheme of work based on their prior knowledge. He set homework tasks each week to enable continuity from lesson to lesson. What we especially liked was that Sullivan tailored subject matter to the interests of our daughter which made the lessons even more engaging and accessible. We highly recommend Sullivan. He would be the first person to turn to should we need French lessons again.
Sullivan, is a polite and patient teacher.
Ready to help solve issues with fundamentals and advance of the language. Good use of language in creative writing and an excellent encouraging and motivating individual.
Will definitely use him again.
