French, German and Italian Tuition

ONE TO ONE
You come to my home or we can meet ‘on-line’ as I can offer fully Skyped facilities with webcam visual contact.
You will make fast progress, not only because the lessons are intensive and tailored to your needs and as sole student, there is no one to hold you back.
You will receive structured homework to increase your progress. This can account for up to 20% of overall learning.
I assess and aim to cater for your needs, whether beginner, intermediate or advanced level.

GROUP ‘EXAM BUSTING’ SESSIONS
Several students learning together is a most effective way of bringing an added dimension to the class. Students in partnership often form a strong bond, motivating each other, and working well together.
Six is my suggested maximum as it is vital to keep the tuition as intensive as possible.
We practice written, listening and oral exam papers and can also iron out any grammar or vocabulary issues that are relevant to the particular exam at the appropriate level.

MY APPROACH TO TUTORING
I carefully assess where my students have gaps in their knowledge and then build on closing them through grammar and vocabulary. I therefore give my students the building blocks to create their own sentences in writing and speech.
I work with their text books but also provide my own material to make lessons more interesting. I also use interactive material as well as focussing on past papers and oral exams to help gain confidence in the language.
I engage well with all my students and make the lessons enjoyable and less like an extension of school.
My conversation classes with adults are always fast-paced and fun, and my students very quickly widen their vocabulary and gain confidence in the new language.

Carina
French from non-native fluent speaker (Learn from someone who learned the language myself :)
How will a native speaker understand the struggles of learning their own native language? How will they know what's the most difficult thing about their mother tongue? Stop signing up with native French speakers and learn from a person who speaks French fluently after having studied it from primary school all the way through to my professional career.
