I've helped hundreds of school-aged students pass their exams and I love to help adult learners feel comfortable speaking and understanding French.

Tell us about your experience...

I worked in a London secondary school for 5 years as GCSE and A level French teacher and moved n to head of A level French. I moved to France and continued tutoring (TEFL and French) and set up my own business there where I coached and taught languages. I'm therefore used to working in both UK and French environments and understand the challenges that language learning can present to all ages. I am now in Fulham and am available to teach in the surrounding areas or on Skype and Zoom, daytime and weekends.

What locations do you tutor in?

Fulham, Chelsea, Kensington Notting Hill and central London

What is your personal message to students?

I understand that learning a language can be daunting, but once we break it down into its basic framework I promise you that you will be able to speak and understand very quickly !
