Tuitions For the Beginner
I am an
experienced and enthusiastic
French teacher (French national) who offers fun private tuitions to all
age groups (children as young as 4!). I can tailor my lessons
to suit all purposes, whether from
conversation or revision, from beginner level to the more advanced, for
pleasure or for professional, or even simply for travelling needs.
I have worked
with very young children for many years and know how to make
learn a lot of French without them noticing that they are working hard.
and role-playing are all part of the teaching process and they love
have also worked with adults for several years now, (I also teach Adult
Ed.) and I have learned how to
reduce the inhibitions we all face when speaking a
foreign language for the first time: humour!
tuning for the
more advanced learners is also conducted in a very light, relaxed,
humorous way. Here again, work is done in such a way that time flies!
years, I have also 'coached'
many couples and families while in the process of their 'move over' to
preparing them for this cultural shift by not only focusing on
areas of their lifestyle for which they need good
skills, but also paving the way for a smooth cultural adaptation.

These intermediate French conversation classes are aimed at students who
are already familiar with the basics of the language and who want to
develop further fluency, pronunciation and intonation. I use
communicative approach centred on the student; I gradually introduce
new vocabulary and structures that students can then practise orally in
role-plays and group conversations connected to useful everyday
contexts. Being a French native not only allows me to feed
students with interesting cultural facts, but also guarantees
accuracy of pronunciation and intonation. My aim is to give
students the tools to express themselves independently, using modern,
contemporary language in a range of contexts including travel,
holidaying or even living in francophone countries the world over.

Groupes de Discussion
These advanced discussion classes are aimed
at the students who are already
well at ease with the language, and for whom grammar, tenses,
pronunciation and intonation are just a question of fine-tuning.
Throughout the lessons, I use a wide range of contexts
current affairs to inject new vocabulary and more complex structures.
The aim is for students to gain confidence and to practise
freely on topics that interest them.

Every now and then I organize 'une
vrai soirée raclette', with real
Raclette cheese, proper jambon
(French mountain ham) and all the traditional ingredients
that go with it. An authentic taste of the genuine stuff,
the way it has always been conducted in my own family. A perfect
opportunity to experience a snapshot of authentic French culture !
