I am a French native speaker from the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region and I have been living in England for nearly 20 years. I have a vast teaching experience and I am a fully qualified French teacher in the UK and France. For many years, I have been teaching to children, teenagers, students, language teachers and adults in England at primary, secondary and University levels. Before living in the UK, I have taught in France, in China and in Poland in secondary schools and Universities. I offer private tuition at all levels (Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced) and for a variety of purposes (grammar revisions, French for business, holiday courses, exam revisions for GCSE, IGCSE, AS/A2, IB, BA, Open University or Asset Languages, conversation classes,...) or just for pleasure to learn French. I organize and teach French courses for children and their parents (Family French courses). I teach French to children aged 6 and over. All my lessons and resources are designed according to my students` level and needs. I design and teach French business courses to local companies.

How would you describe your teaching style?

All my lessons are designed according to my students' needs and levels. I use a variety of materials (authentic or materials I produce) to create a French environment. My lessons are varied and include some speaking, listening, writing and reading aspects. I have a good sense of humor and lessons are fun and pleasant while making progress.

What qualifications do you have?

I have a PGCHE (Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education) from the University of Kent and an Advanced Certificate in Education (Post compulsory) from Canterbury Christ Church University. I have a Masters Degree in French and a Master in English Civilisation from the University of Besançon (Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region). I studied and gained a BA in French and a BA in English at the same University.
