Information about Rachel
I am a friendly, enthusiastic French tutor who loves foreign languages and passing on my knowledge of the French language to new learners.
As a tutor, I focus on encouraging and building confidence in my students so they feel happy to speak the language without being worried about making mistakes.
I am a true francophile and have lived and worked in France for several years. I hold a B.A. Honours in French and International Relations - (First Class in French) - including a year spent studying Civilisation Francaise at l`Universite d`Aix Marseille - and have used my linguistic skills throughout my career, principally in a medical research and IT environment.
I am qualified to teach French to adults 16+(PTLLS qualification) but am happy to teach younger pupils.
I look forward to meeting you!
