French tuition for beginners up to A level with experienced, patient and friendly tutor

French tuition either on a 1-1, 1-2 or small group basis - can either follow a school or college curriculum or be completely student-led, working on difficulties or starting to learn the language from scratch, working towards exams or just to achieve personal goals. I use a wide range of materials, from books and websites to audio examples on YouTube, Instagram and other sites. Keeping the language up to date is key to learning so I always prioritise the spoken and written word, focusing on increasing skills and confidence in listening, speaking, reading and writing proficiently in French.

About Me

I'm a Mum of two teenagers so my teaching skills have come in very handy over the years! My patience is infinite and I understand how to relate to students of all ages and abilities through being kind, sensitive to their needs and responding to each individual with care. My love of French began quite late on as my experience at school wasn't very positive - luckily I had a fantastic French tutor who got me through the difficulties, leading to my developing a passion for the language and for all things French! I went on to study French at University, spend a year living in the south of France then I began honing my tuition skills and now I'm over 25 years in the job. Over the years I have learnt how to tailor my lessons to the requirements of each student and have achieved great success - in terms of student exam grades and with adult learners gaining skills and confidence - due to the time and attention I give to creating and delivering interesting, useful and informative lessons. I have strong IT skills and have over 3 years' experience of online teaching via Zoom, Skype and MS Teams.

Education

I attended the University of Reading in the UK which included a year spent attending the Université de Paul Valéry in Montpellier and achieved a 2:1 grade. Before that I completed 3 A levels and 10 GCE 'O' levels at secondary school including French and English (at both levels)

Experience / Qualifications

Apart from French tuition, I have additional experience in writing CVs, general administrative work, proofreading and copy-editing, researching and creating content for social media and managing training courses.

Phillip
Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

Private lessons in French and work methodology
My name is Jonathan. I am a young teacher with already 15 years of experience in the field of academic support for primary and secondary school children up to rhetoric. I also provide individual monitoring for your work method, more particularly in terms of understanding the instructions and the work schedule. If you need a helping hand, I'm here to listen.

Kevin
Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.

Natalia
Russian, English, French language. Grammar, preparing for International exams.
Russian is a difficult language. It’s completely alien from English and most other languages. But you don’t need to make things more difficult than they seem. If you put in the time and effort required, you can get to a decent level of conversational Russian in a relative short time span. Russian is my native one. English is widespread, you can learn it with me. I learned English by myself, so I invented lots of trick to understand better the grammar. French is beautiful, an I worked with French for 17 years old, so I can teach you real French.

French is one of the most influential languages in the world.

My lessons are based on my student's expectations, the areas in which he wants to work will be implemented.
