Information about Helene

I am a French native speaker born in the south of Brittany.

Over the years I have learnt English, German and had a little fun with some Spanish and Italian. My experiences of learning languages have been different and I believe it helps me with my teaching.

At the age of 14 I moved to England with my family. I started with very little English but I had to learn fast. Not only I wanted to communicate with my new friends but also I was faced with GCSEs and Alevels.
I learnt English through immersion in the language (and necessity).

Learning German was very different. I experienced learning German in a French class, in an English class, at university and finally in Germany. This is when I realised how much the grammar we learn at school in France is useful for language learning. The process of learning German was longer but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have a life passion for languages and I hope I can share it with my students.

Availability: daytime, weekends and some evenings

After School

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I taught in a comprehensive school in the south of England for a couple of years, then in an international school in London.

After 7 years of teaching in schools, I started a travel language agency whilst tutoring.

I currently teach adults in companies as well as tutor teenagers and adults. I have experience teaching at all key stages. I have taught and tutored GCSE, A Level and IB programmes.

I also ran a school French club in a primary school for a year.

Russ (Mr)

5/5 Rating

It has been a great experience working with Helene. I have a great sense of achievement after every session which, I believe, is down to her teaching style.

Highly recommended.

5/5 Rating

we had one lesson with Helene where she swiftly established a good rapport with my son and assessed his abilities and area that needed work. I found her willing to work flexibly with us and very skilled. We did not continue the lessons for another reason but I would definitely go back to her if need arose

Helene was an excellent tutor - we very much enjoyed her lessons, as a refresher prior to a holiday in Corsica

Richard (Mr)

I contacted Helene on very short notice before being relocated to France for work. She managed to fit me in and provided well thought out and structured lessons, all of which have proved very helpful now I`m in France. Highly Recommended.
