- Teaching since:
I am a qualified French teacher from the U.K. with near-native fluency and with 5 years of experience teaching in France, the U.K. and the U.S.A. I have taught at mainly high school level but also elementary, middle school and adults.
I have a first-class honors degree in French and Linguistics from the University of York and a Postgraduate Certificate of Education in Modern Foreign Languages from the University of Southampton.
Throughout my career I have been commended for my clear and creative teaching style. My background is in Linguistcs and not Literature, so I focus on making grammar accessible and memorable, and using memory techniques to make the language stick! I teach with humor, fun and lots of praise, and have been known to use singing, role-plays, puppets, and lots of games!
I can tailor lessons to any style. For example, if you’d prefer lessons 100% in French then that’s great, but if not then I’m happy to do a mix. I’m also a Mum so am great at keeping the attention of little ones.
The main thing is that you make progress and enjoy learning this beautiful and quirky language!
