Your French lessons, Your French goals:
Your French teacher !
Are you looking for a teacher who’s available to provide lessons tailored to your needs? I am a qualified French Teacher offering personalised One-on-One and Group Lessons to students in the Cambridge area and online. I was born in Tours, France - a lovely small city right in the middle of the Loire Valley. This region is famous for its wine, goat's cheese, beautiful castles and also for having the purest form of the French language... or at least so it was until the 18th century! I’ve been teaching adult students of all levels since 2012 in London, Seoul and now Cambridge. I love teaching and am committed to helping students discover and reach their full potential in learning French in Cambridge and online, at their own pace. I also provide translation work from English to French only.

Learn French in Cambridge or online with results that last
Teaching isn’t just ingraining information into students’ minds to memorise — it’s about providing them with the tools they need in order to think, create and succeed. I believe that good teaching is based on clear, relaxed and fun lessons which ultimately improves quality of life. Since 2012, I have taught students in groups and privately, and have helped all of them reach their potential to the best of my abilities. You will find descriptions of my services below but please get in touch with me so we can discuss your goals and the best way for you to learn French.

On the Road to Success
Customised Lessons to Fit You
I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that focuses on Exam Preparation. Teachers need to be able to motivate and guide students to success. As an experienced Language Teacher, I can identify students’ problem areas and work with them in positive, constructive ways to achieve success. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities. I offer preparation for the following French exams: A-Levels, AS-Levels, DELF, DALF, TCF and TEF.
I am part of a handful of qualified and native French Language Teachers in Cambridge area so why not take advantage of my professional experience, especially my One-to-One Lessons. When you book one-to-one classes, you get your teacher's undivided attention. Lessons are tailored to your own personal needs, your level, your pace and the time and effort you can commit to learning. Time, place, book used, subjects, homework are all flexible. Get in touch today and let's discuss how I can help you excel.
I specialise in Group Lessons, and know how to get my students to excel through personalised attention, patience, a lot of practice, and hard work. I make learning fun through a variety of engaging and teamwork activities. Group lessons allow for a more dynamic exchange and you get a lot of speaking practice with other learners. Don't worry, no one is left behind! Small group lessons can be at your home or in-company and can focus on leisure or business learning.
From £40/hour for two students, £5/h per additional students.
FRENCH FOR HOLIDAYS
The most frightening part of learning a new language is speaking in front of other people - or worse, native speakers! - and feel like a fool because of your pronunciation... Whilst there is no wrong accent, there definitely are words more difficult than others to pronounce and especially in French. French pronunciation can be tricky for English speakers. The other way around is also true. I can help you speak French almost as well as a French native speaker so start now!
Do you love French cheese, French wine and French castles but the only thing you can say is omelette du fromage? Then this course is perfect for you! Even if you are a beginner, you can learn the basics and get around in any French speaking city. You will learn how to book a hotel room, ask for prices, order at a restaurant, organise activities and use transportation along with travel tips and advice. Course can be tailored depending on your level, when you are leaving and how long for.
From £270 for a 10-hour course.
I have studied translation as part of my Masters Degree in English Studies and I am confident in translating English texts into French. Emails, work documents, brochures, websites, professional presentations, resumes... I will do the hard work for you and translate daily documents so you can feel confident sharing them to potential clients, peers and students. Exact prices will vary depending on the length and specificity of each projects so please contact me for a better estimate.
