Recent French and German graduate at the University of Bristol. Offering private and group sessions up to undergraduate level in the South Birmingham area.

Methodology

I like to base my classes around conversation as I have found that speaking the language is often the hardest part of learning a foreign language and the part of language learning that tends to be neglected at school due to the vast number of students in classes. One on one conversation in the target language will often improve the pupil's confidence and augment their oral capabilities at school. I like to start with word games and competitions as this makes language learning interesting. After capturing the attention of the student, I then like to tackle the grammars of the language.

Experience

I have worked as a private English tutor for both individual and small group (3 pupils) lessons in France. These students went on to get their Cambridge English as a foreign language certificates for A1 language level. Having lived in France several times and taught in schools there, I am not only fluent in French but I am also able to find innovative ways of aiding children's learning.
