Information about Virginie
My name is Virginie, I am a French native speaker who has been living in the UK for seven years now. I would be very interested in helping students of all levels (GCSE , A-level & Degree) to prepare their exams in French. I can also do private tutoring for adult learners who have to use French at work so they can be more confident either over the phone, in writing or when they meet French clients.
I have a BA degree in International Marketing and prior to this I obtained a trilingual (English, French, Spanish) administration & business management foundation degree. With strong communication skills in Spanish, both written and spoken, I also provide Spanish tuitions up to GCSE level.
I`m confident that I can take you up to a good level and that we can work together on your weakest points.
I also can offer on-line tutoring using Skype and remote control systems.
Availability: Week-ends and week day evenings
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: I have helped teenagers to prepare for their GCSE and AS/A-Level exams. By taking some lessons with me, my students have clearly improved their level of French and managed to get really good grades at their exams.
Having had a number of students since I started as a tutor, I can provide references upon request.
Feedback For Virginie (7)
Whilst I only took three lessons with Virginie, due her shortage of availability, I found these extremely helpful. They enabled me to make progress that I would otherwise not have made.
Virginie has helped me with French at AS level, and is now helping me work towards the TCF test for non-native French speakers. She has always been extremely encouraging and is an excellent tutor. Her lessons are always enjoyable, and she has focused on my areas of difficulty, really helping me gain more confidence in all aspects of French, including speaking and writing.
Virginie is excellent tutor. She has been teaching me for the past 5 months and improved my French significantly. I enjoy working with her. She is very patient, understanding and well organised. I would highly recommend her to all.
Very professional, always prepared and having a plan for the lesson, pleasant to work with.
Virginie is a fantastic tutor and is such a lovely person. I have no hesitation in recommending her. Virginie is very keen to ensure I understand, teaches at a suitable pace and is very patient. She is going above and beyond in helping me to achieve my goal, and for this I am very thankful. I rate her so highly both as a teacher and as a friend :)
Virginie helped me through my AS level French exam. She was an excellent tutor who made every lesson enjoyable and always went the extra mile, tailor-making additional lessons for me to work on my weaker areas in my spare time. She has greatly improved my confidence in spoken French and helped me gain a much better mark in my exam than I would otherwise have achieved.
Virginie was really good with my son who is aged nine. He was worried about the lesson but Virginie made him feel at ease and she made the lesson fun. Joe really enjoyed it and remembered much of what Virginie taught.
