Information about Madeleine

I am a starred-first graduate in Modern and Medieval Languages (French and German) of the University of Cambridge with a joint Master`s degree in European Studies from King`s College London and the Humboldt Universität in Berlin.

I am passionate about languages, travel, and widening access to higher education. I am 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. I aim to challenge, using authentic material to push my students out of their comfort zones and beyond what they encounter in the classroom. I provide progress reports and homework tasks as required.

Beyond French and German, I teach History (with a particular personal interest in 20th century German history), and English (Literature, Language, and as a Foreign Language) at all levels beyond primary teaching, as well as Oxbridge applications advice. All lessons are conducted online.

I also edit personal statements, essays, and prose more generally - you can choose to book me for the time taken to read and edit your piece, or we can schedule a session to go through it together in detail. Please just get in touch!

Willing to travel: 30 miles

Experience: My love of tuition was sparked by tutoring for the Coronavirus Tutoring Initiative, a project which provided disadvantaged pupils with free tuition during the pandemic. I have since been tutoring for some years, and adore helping students achieve their academic goals.

Aside from my academic pursuits, I worked for a multinational consulting firm in Paris from 2020 - 2021, where I headed the translation of financial documents from French to English. Likewise, I have au paired in Austria twice, teaching teenagers English, as well as teaching English as a foreign language in two Austrian secondary schools for the British Council. I was responsible for planning and delivering lessons on British culture with a focus on coherence and effectiveness of communication. I now work as a strategy consultant for mission-driven organisations in London.

I was an editor for a student-led policy think tank at King’s College London, and have worked as a volunteer researcher for the COVID-19 Domestic Violence Task Force UK/EU, a student-led project researching the structures exacerbating abuse and violence against women to advocate for policy change on gender-based violence in the UK and EU.

Whilst at Cambridge, I participated in several Oxbridge roadshow `tours` of northern secondary schools with my college, St Catharine`s, and sat on panels discussing what makes a successful applicant and undergraduate in languages. Likewise, I was twice an executive member of the panel organising a Cambridge-based international conference in undergraduate German studies. A key part of this role was engaging with secondary school pupils to inspire them with enthusiasm for continuing German post-18.

Such a great tutor! She made my essay 10x better, definitely going to work with her again!

Stuart (Mr)

5/5 Rating

My daughter enjoys her tutorials with Madeleine. I think they provide an opportunity which is hard to achieve at school - where you can practise spoken German with a fluent speaker and also work at an individual level on grammar which she finds difficult. Madeleine is confident, organised and has been able to build a good working relationship with my daughter. I`m sure that my daughter will benefit in terms of achievement but also confidence and enjoyment of her subject. Thanks Madeleine.

Madeleine was an excellent tutor in my sessions I had with her. Her knowledge on the subject I was working on, the Third Reich, was of course extremely impressive, but also so was her ability to share this in a very clear, understandable way which made the sessions incredibly useful. The sessions were enjoyable and interactive, and her communication and availability was great, which made it all very easy to organise. I would very highly recommend Madeleine as a tutor to anyone, and will definitely be looking forward to more sessions with her in the future!

I have been really impressed by the tutoring Madeleine has provided. The sessions for my daughter, currently studying towards A-levels, are always well planned with a clear structure. The coverage has mainly been speaking and listening as this is where my daughter mainly struggles. I have also really appreciated the in depth updates of progress and Madeleine taking her time to provide myself with key topic question starters to have conversations at home. I would definitely recommend Madeleine to anyone looking for french tutoring.

My son has had 3 English lessons and 3 German lessons with Madeleine so far, which he has really enjoyed. She is an excellent tutor and covered much ground in a few lessons. We will definitely book her again in future.

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.

Arron (Mr)

5/5 Rating

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.

Hazel (Mrs)

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.

Adeela (Mrs)

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.

Alan (Mr)

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.
