Information about Robert
Je m`appelle Robert et je suis votre nouveau prof de Français! (My name is Robert and I am your new French Teacher!)
Whether you`re keen to improve your conversational French for academic or social pursuits, need a helping hand with writing/reading French, or are just after a bit of a chat, my one-to-one tutoring service combines great rates with flexible times, producing guaranteed results.
I offer a range of tutoring services to meet a wide array of abilities starting from absolute beginners all the way up to, and including A-Level and degree tuition.
I have a Bachelors degree in French Studies (with Honours) from a top 10 UK University (The University of Lancaster, Grade: 2:1) as well as international experience teaching students in a French Lycée (Sixth-form College), collège (Secondary School) and Private Language School. My students aged between eight and sixty and varied in ability. I am therefore comfortable with students of all ages and abilities.
I remain an active member of a local (Elland-Riorges) French Exchange Programme and visit France regularly in order to keep up to date with current French linguistic trends.
My resources are of the highest standard, fully conform with, and often exceed the national curriculum specifications, in order to provide each student with the best possible chance of success.
All services are offered on a confidential, individual, and flexible basis, arranged at times and locations to suit your needs. After School/work hours are available.
My hourly standard rate is £25.00 with each lesson typically lasting one hour.
I`d love to hear from you!
À bientôt! (See you soon! / Bye for now!)
Availability: My available hours are flexible and can be worked into any busy schedule.

Experience: July 2012 – September 2012, Teacher at a Private School, Cavilam, Vichy, France
I undertook a range of duties including: creating, planning and teaching my own lessons to students aged between 8 and 60 years old. In this capacity, I was able to further develop my skills of perseverance and dedication, as well as sharpening my communication skills, allowing me to better understand the individual needs of my students.
September 2011 - May 2012, Language Assistant at Lycée François Mansart, Thizy, France
I was able to learn effective communication skills that have become invaluable to me in everyday life, especially when tutoring French. Working in a France has also empowered me with problem solving skills, essential to a well-rounded, creative language tutor. During my time in France, I often initiated heavily participation orientated lesson plans, designed to engage each individual student, in turn, providing each with individual results.
