I am a French citizen from the South East of France with a Bachelor degree in art and a Master degree of primary and kindergarten education in France. After traveling and volunteering in different countries in Europe, Australia or also Japan, I decided to move in Scotland two years ago , where I was working as a kindergarten teacher, and I will graduate in June with a PGDE postgraduate degree in Foreign Languages education in Glasgow University: I am now specialized to teach Foreign Languages and to teach children!
Last year, I have been teaching full time in a kindergarten school in Edinburgh where I created a French class for all the children. My enjoyment of teaching my native language encouraged me to apply this year for a PGDE to become a qualified French teacher! I completed this year an internship of 14 weeks to teach French full time in different scottish secondary schools.
I also have experience in Tutoring , as I have helped several students in secondary school to learn English and French in France as an educational assistant during one year.
According to my students, I am enthusiastic, patient and supportive !
I tailor the lessons to your needs and wishes. I have an “activity based” and a “communicative” approach, which make you learn a language through discussions most of the time but also games, challenges and even role playing if you wish !
First of all , we will have a conversation to getting to know you better, where I could evaluate your level and what do you wish to focus on the different skills of language according to your needs and your goals:
- Speaking , the best way to learn a language , with different topics you are interested in, using videos, films, musics,art, books, articles,etc…
- Listening and Reading to work on your pronunciation and your understanding using as many materials as you want to: musics,news, films, texts etc...
- Writing, on subjects according to your goals, to work on your grammar and vocabulary. You can choose to work on specific points with exercices or also by having fun with games and challenges , there is so many different ways to learn a language!
I am also qualified and have the experience to work with children at any level , as to prepare any exams in advanced French level.
