Bachelor's in French Language and Literature
With 15 years devoted to nurturing French language skills among GSCE students, my journey has been one of continuous learning and mentorship. I am responsible for teaching classes in the French Language Department. These classes are specifically designed to align with the GSCE curriculum. I believe in being patient and adaptable in my teaching approach, recognizing that every student has their own unique journey when it comes to learning French. I focus on helping my students use their language skills effectively so they can communicate confidently in French. My lessons help students gain a better understanding and appreciation for the French-speaking world by incorporating cultural context.
My teaching approach revolves around practical application. I focus on equipping students with vocabulary and language structures they can use immediately. Through dialogues, role plays, and real-world scenarios, I aim to instill confidence in their ability to communicate effectively in French.
I had lessons two to three times a week from November until the end of December. I was a beginner in French, and by the end, I had a solid understanding of the basics. He was an excellent teacher, always understanding and adaptable to my learning needs. I really liked talking to him before classes and during breaks. If I have the chance to return to Paris, I will definitely go back for more lessons!
Master's in French Language and Literature
I have been working as a French tutor for 14 years and have helped many students become proficient in French. I have a Master's degree in French Language and Literature from Harvard University. This has given me the knowledge and skills to succeed in the Department of Foreign Languages. I believe in a methodical and tailored approach to teaching, where I prioritize addressing each student's unique needs in order to achieve the best possible learning results. I make sure that my classes are interesting and applicable, creating a space where students are inspired to learn and utilize French
For me, learning is more than just memorization; it's about understanding and connecting. I prioritize breaking down complex French concepts into digestible bits, ensuring every student feels confident in their language progression. While I value the importance of practical exercises, I also focus on real-time engagement in our sessions, encouraging students to speak, read, and write during our time together. This helps them to be not just exam-ready but world-ready.
