English & French classes

I have a CELTA certificate (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults) and an MA in English Literature completed at Kingston University London. I also have an MA in Multilingual Communications from the ‘Université Libre de Bruxelles’ in Brussels and a BA in Modern Languages (English/Spanish).

I have been working as a teaching assistant and as a teacher of English and French as foreign languages since 2010 in various schools in both Luxembourg and London. Teaching and studying languages in different countries has given me an opportunity to discover a range of different learning and teaching environments.

I have studied and speak 5 foreign languages fluently, and therefore understand what it takes to learn a foreign language.I love teaching. I am reliable and I always do my best to to meet the needs of the students I work with.

About Me

Multilingual, Creative, Flexible, Patient, Sociable, Enthusiastic, Dynamic, Hardworking



Originally, I decided to take a Masters in English Literature to teach English in Luxembourg, my hometown. However, now that I have the relevant academic and practical qualifications I want to develop my teaching career here in England. I have been working as a teaching assistant and as a teacher of English and French as foreign languages since 2010 in various schools in both Luxembourg and London. Teaching and studying languages in different countries has given me an opportunity to discover a range of different learning and teaching environments.

I have a CELTA certificate (Pass B) and an MA in English Literature completed at Kingston University London. I also have an MA in Multilingual Communications from the ‘Université Libre de Bruxelles’ in Brussels and a BA in Modern Languages (English/Spanish).

I have taught both English and French as foreign languages. At Language.lu in Luxembourg, I was responsible for establishing the weekly educational programme for the students who usually attended an intensive 1 week course. At Aline Mayrisch high school in Luxembourg, I team-taught English to students aged 15/16 years for an English option class. I established the programme and evaluated the students at the end of the year.

I have studied and speak 5 foreign languages fluently, and therefore understand what it takes to learn a foreign language. I love teaching. I believe I am a patient, creative and hard working person; qualities which I think are important to be a good teacher. I am motivated and reliable and I always do my best to use the skills I have acquired in order to meet the needs of the students I work with.

Propose cours particuliers pour lycéens et collégiens - Londres
Bonjour, Je suis étudiante en mathématiques à Imperial College London située à 5 min du Lycée Français CDG à South Kensington. Je propose des cours de soutien pour les lycéens et collégiens, surtout pour des matières scientifiques. Ayant passé un Bac S Spé maths mention très bien en 2017, je suis très à l’aise avec les programmes récents des matières du lycée. De plus j’ai depuis un an de l’experience en cours particulier, notamment en cours de soutien pour la langue japonaise, mais aussi de l’expérience en garde d’enfants et ados. Ma méthode pédagogique consiste à faire de mon mieux pour faire apprécier et comprendre la matière concernée à mes élèves, en revenant sur les cours des professeurs mais avec une approche plus calme, s’appuyant sur les exercises types ou des annales pour les futurs bacheliers, pour faciliter l’assimilation du contenu de cours. Si intéressé(e) pour des cours de plusieurs matières ou une seule spécifiquement, n’hésitez pas à me contacter par message privé ou sur le numéro indiqué. Je peux facilement me déplacer autour du Lycée et en zone 1 et 2. Bien à vous Juliette

French, affordable and for all levels and purposes!
For all levels, for both children and adults, and diploma preparation. All aspects of the language would be targeted during the lessons, emphasizing those desired by the student (ex: conversational, grammar) Depending on the level and the method of study will be adapted to each student, with outside-of-class follow up. The classes will be conducted in either English, French, or both, once again depending on the needs and the level of the student. Classes focused on the reinforcement of the language can also be organised, focused on specific topics that the student is interested in, which will allow the student not to lose the language and to develop further their knowledge of lexicon in the specific area. In what concerns diploma preparation, the lessons will focus on the particularities of the tests (timing, response format, lexicon, etc).
