Information about Madeleine

Bonjour! Hallo! Hi! I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge with a First Class with Distinction degree in Modern and Medieval Languages. I am going on to do a joint Master`s in European Studies with a German focus at King`s College London and the Humboldt Universität in Berlin.

I am passionate about languages and education, and sympathetic to the struggles of learning a foreign language. My sessions are fully tailored to the individual and followed up with detailed notes to enable easy revision. I am always happy to check work between lessons, and answer any questions or queries. I aim to challenge, using authentic material from the French and German speaking world to push my students out of their comfort zones and beyond what they encounter in the classroom.

I am available for French, German, History (with a particular interest in 20th century German history), and English at all levels, as well as Oxbridge application advice.

I tutor predominantly over Skype. I am available for in-person teaching, but have to ask for a small amount towards petrol at the moment.

Availability: Mornings/afternoons/evenings - whenever works for you!

Willing to travel: 30 miles

Experience: I worked for a multinational consulting firm in Paris, where I headed the translation of financial documents from French - English. I have au paired in Austria twice, teaching teenagers English. I also taught English as a foreign language in Austria for the British Council.

Whilst at Cambridge, I participated in several Oxbridge roadshow `tours` of secondary schools with my college, St Catharine`s, and sat on panels discussing what makes a successful applicant and undergraduate in languages.

My daughter had Madeleine for a period of time. I can honestly say that after having many tutors for my children over the years Madeleine proved to be the most successful. My daughter loved her lessons as the method of teaching was so good. I cannot recommend this tutor highly enough.

Madeleine is a great French tutor and I really recommend her! I`m an adult learner, trying to do an A level with independent study. I started barely with GCSE knowledge from a long time ago and now feel more confident speaking French, am one chapter away from finishing my first book read completely in French (and it wasn`t even a kids book!) and can understand most of the French music I listen to! She will mark my attempts at essays, go through any mistakes, answer any questions I send her way and prepare worksheets and PowerPoints for topics/grammar I`m particularly struggling with.

Madeleine has been teaching our son German in preparation for his GCSE next year. He finds the lessons very helpful and well structured.

Madeleine is an excellent tutor, and has helped me immensely with my Cambridge interview preparation. She is an incredibly friendly, enthusiastic and encouraging tutor, who gives as much help and advice as she possibly can. Having Madeleine as a tutor has undeniably strengthened my confidence and skills with French grammar, speaking and analysis. I would highly recommend Madeleine to anyone learning French or preparing for Oxbridge interviews, as she is a superb tutor!

It`s been four weeks since my daughter has started having lessons with Madeleine. Each time my daughter joins the lesson with a happy face and each time after the lesson she says it was quite effective. I can`t thank Madeleine enough and I hope my daughter gets her confidence back in French because of her.

After losing confidence with french in lockdown my daughter started lessons with Madeleine. After the first session she was much more confident. Madeleine is very organised and follows up each lesson with notes on what was covered. She now has weekly lessons to prepare for gcse french.

I am so pleased that I contacted Madeleine on Tutor hunt. She is an amazing teacher and my granddaughter looks forward to her weekly French lessons. She has gained in confidence and is learning so much.. Madeleine keeps us up to date with her progress and Leah learns about the French way of life as well as learning the language. We are very happy with Madeline and would highly recommend her.

Madeleine is fantastic tutor we have found for our son. He was struggling with French at school so decided to find a tutor for him. After the session he was so happy about his learning with Madeleine. He looked confident and wanted to learn more. Madeleine is very good with her teaching style, and she gives very interactive sessions to her pupils. I wish I have found her earlier. Highly recommend to the other parents who are in search of good tutor.

5/5 Rating

Madeleine is a first-class French tutor blessed with a relaxed and encouraging style. She is formidably intelligent on the one hand but fully capable of engaging with her students - regardless of their standard of French - on the other. She is boundlessly patient and is always encouraging her students. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Robert (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Absolutely brilliant. Warm and welcoming with a fluent knowledge of her craft. Her demeanour is so kind and amiable that you never notice the precise planning and forethought that underpins her work, but it`s there, in spades. She`s quick, adaptable and responsive, a born teacher who makes learning fun. Should be running the country.
