French - get ready for exams, or brush up your language skills!

I have experience tutoring children and teenagers to help them prepare for their exams (GCSE, A-Level), to boost their confidence when speaking and writing, or just to ensure what they learned in class has been clearly understood.

I have also helped quite a few adult friends practice and improve their spoken French, and I would love to help you do so too!

I strongly believe the student should be at the centre of the tutor’s attention and planning every step of the way. Every tutee is different, and I will always spend the first hour discussing what their expectations are, what has worked best for them until then, and what they are struggling with. If their attention span is short, I will make sure to both work with it by adapting my lessons and work to improve it over time. If exam anxiety prevents them from achieving the results they could, I will include regular mock exams.
I want my tutees to feel at ease and stress-free during our lessons, and making our time together safe and comfortable is crucial to me.

About Me

I am a tutor because I love teaching and seeing my students become more confident and comfortable with their knowledge and abilities. I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant at Queen Mary, University of London, but I miss my tutoring days.

I have been tutoring on and off since 2013. I was lucky enough to work with a diverse range of students, age- and character-wise. I am as comfortable tutoring young children to improve their self-confidence or their focus as I am helping teenagers find the best way to organise their ideas on paper or present them in public.
Thanks to my academic background, I am able to prepare lessons on most subjects fast and efficiently.

I strongly believe the student should be at the centre of the tutor’s attention and planning every step of the way. Every tutee is different, and I will always spend the first hour discussing what their expectations are, what has worked best for them until then, and what they are struggling with. If their attention span is short, I will make sure to both work with it by adapting my lessons and work to improve it over time. If exam anxiety prevents them from achieving the results they could, I will include regular mock exams.
I want my tutees to feel at ease and stress-free during our lessons, and making our time together safe and comfortable is crucial to me.

Experience / Qualifications

Worked as a Teaching Associate at Queen Mary, University of London (2017-2020) and King's College London (2018-2019)
Tutored students in France (through Acadomia, 2012-13) and in London (through Enjoy Education, 2019-2020)
I am a Teaching Associate and Writing Tutor at a London University. I have been teaching History and Essay Writing to undergraduate students for the past three years. I also have experience tutoring children and teenagers to help them prepare for their exams (GCSE, A-Level, Brevet, Baccalauréat). I strongly believe the student should be at the centre of the tutor’s attention and planning every step of the way.

Steph
French tuition with native experienced french tutor
have been a french tutor for 20 years in London and worked for language agencies and private.I was also a licensee of the "Le club Francais" so I am experienced with primary school level too. I teach all and all ages level from beginners to advance level. I teach and train students for their GCSE and A levels I have trained students for their exams and I am proud to say most of them through out the years got top marks. I have plenty of references if required I developed an easy way to learn your grammar via memo technics as it's the harder part of learning french and most of my students are surprised to be able to converse in present past and future tense within 3 months As a native of France I can teach you French to advanced level focusing on the following. All my lessons are taught in very communicative way as I truly believe is the only way to be fluent. -grammar -conversation -pronunciation. As well as this I have extensive experience working with people of all levels from beginners to academics helping them to achieve their goals. I can come to you in those area : North london especially Crouch End, Wood Green , Muswell hill, Highbury, Highgate, Holloway, Finsbury Park, Manor House, Angel , Dalston, Stoke Newington, Finchley (City for morning and lunchtime slots only)

Elise
French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

We worked on themes where I was less strong and deepened in the topics where I was strong. I appreciated his professionalism and flexibility. She has a very good teaching method that is adapted to the needs of the students. The classes are very didactic and efficient! I highly recommend it! MARTA: Vendula is an excellent teacher! She helped me prepare for the DALF C1 exam on Skype. It was an almost impossible mission in a very short time. My frequent errors in French grammar and the C1 exam subjects have been worked on a lot. The preparation of the oral production was totally equal to the exam requirements, so the exam day was not a surprise.
