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.

Cours particuliers de français : Langue et communication [EN LIGNE]
Je suis coach, écrivain et professeur de français depuis 2012. Je parle arabe, français, espagnol, anglais et un peu turc. Je donne des cours de français : langue et communication avec une pédagogie française, écrite et orale afin que tout le monde puisse parler couramment en évitant les lacunes grammaticales. J'explique mes cours en français, en arabe ou en espagnol, selon votre choix.

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.

Maria
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).

Aicha
LSE student giving French classes - from Paris to London
I am now a master student at LSE, I am from France and French is my first tongue. French is becoming international and you should really benefit for my professional classes and to bring some of Paris at your life. I love teaching especially for child as they will need all the base of the language.

Roxane
French speaking, writing (conjugation, grammar and vocabulary) listening and reading
The class is for beginner student who wish to learn the basics of french or even for intermediate of advance students who would like to improve their french in speaking with a native french speaker and have some writings corrected by her. The pace of the courses should be discussed with the student.

Josephine
French for non-native speakers - Teaching French in English and Greek
I have studied French for about ten years and I have spent a year in Paris. I have a degree in journalism and creative writing. My goal is to provide alternative and fun ways to learn the language (through conversation, songs, literature, history) alongside to the rules of grammar, syntax and spelling. I believe that the best way to learn a foreign language is through its culture. The lessons can be tailored to your needs and passions. We can work together on pronunciation, grammar, reading, listening, writing and speaking skills. We can meet at your convenience: in a library, coffee shop or Skype, wherever suits you best.

French discussions & courses
I'm available to help you improve your French by discussing with you and I can also prepare special courses if you have some difficulties about some grammar or conjugation. We will use French as much as we can but know that we can switch in English (but not too much) if you don't know how to say it in French. I'm not a professional teacher, I'm a freshly graduated business student but I will do my best to help you improve your skills (reading, writing & speaking)

Nathalie
French lessons all levels (children, teenagers including preparation of IGCSE in French and Adults)
I like that my pupils enjoy their French lesson. I use at the beginning of the lesson a routine. Example for children the greetings, date, weather of the day, numbers and important verbs. Then we work on a special topic using Power Point presentation or tutorials on Ipad for learning the French vocabulary. We do some practice with exercise (paper and games on ipad). For the teenagers the lesson is more academics. I insist on the grammar which is really important and the tense of the verbs. I usually work on the topics studied at school unless the student has a special request. I provide with some support as revision cards for tense of the verbs, topics. For the IGCSE preparation I also include some listening, reading and comprehension and oral questions on the subject studied.

French for Beginners/Intermediates
This class is designed for anyone who wants to begin learning French or who wants to develop their skills further. You will be taught by someone in their final year studying French at university who has lived in France for 5 months. Lessons will be tailored to the specific age range, or linguistic desires. Learning another language should be fun more than anything else, so lessons will be very interactive.
