Professional and experienced French and English as a Foreign Language tutor, for all ages and levels. I also offer tuition in English Literature and Philosophy. With over 3 years of teaching experience in Paris, France, I have degrees from universities in England and in France. My teaching philosophy is geared around achieving tangible results within a predefined framework, whether this be in oral expression, oral/written comprehension, written expression or understanding of grammatical forms. I also have experience of working to specific targets and exam preparation. Most of all, since learning should not be a burden, I insist upon a relaxed environment in order to encourage confidence. Practice makes perfect!
