Information about Christine
Personal Descri ption:
I am a French national who has lived 30+ years in England and after a 25 year career in the secondary and Sixth form sector, I have become self employed as a language trainer and examiner.
Teaching one to one, in small or larger groups.
Teaching 16-19 year olds , adults at every level of language learning, preparing University students for their oral / written examinations,in intensive, semi-intensive, regular weekly packages, etc...
I believe in the communicative approach, developing the speaking and listening skills, reading and finally writing, but all depends on the way the learner wishes to use the language. Obviously, in the case of pupils and students, the syllabus has to dictate the format of the preparation.
The important thing is that the learning experience should be pleasant, positive and empowering.

I ONLY TEACH FROM HOME.

Feedback For Christine (8)
We have found Christine to be a very good tutor who is able to teach at two different levels in the same session (my partner is more advanced in French than I)

Excellent tutor - very helpful and professional.
excellent tutor, very professional. Grandson is much more confident in speaking French.
Delighted we chose Christine.
I started French lessons with Christine 3 months ago, after moving into in new role. Most of my clients are based in Paris, so it was essential to re-visit the language - since it had been 20 years since GCSE. Christine is a wonderful teacher. She is very welcoming and passionate about language. Her lessons are fun and insightful and we`ve progressed at a very good rate - much faster than I expected. I would highly recommend Christine. She is a first class tutor!
Christine has proven to be an excellent choice, she is reliable, well organised and has really improved our daughter`s performance in French. We would highly recommend her.
Had several hours of French tuition so far, I`m an adult learner and a total beginner. Each lesson is a good mix of spoken French and French culture.
Christine is a professional highly competent and well organised tutor. It was evident from the first session that I made the right choice in selecting Christine to teach us French. Christine not only covers the standard teaching material but brings it to life with practical examples delivered with passion and enthusiasm.
I would not hesitate to recommend Christine to others and am sorry I didn`t find her sooner!
