Mrs Cath Baker Sydney Tutor in French

Are you looking for a professional French tutor who actually gets results, rather than just a French-speaking backpacker?

I am an experienced tutor who helps students achieve excellent academic results, especially senior school students preparing for their HSC. In recent years all of my students have achieved either band 5 or 6, with several gaining "Distinguished Achiever" status, and some even featuring as "Top Achievers".

I also enjoy and am equally equipped to tutor younger learners; I have taught many of my students over a period of many years, thus developing real rapport with both them and their parents, and setting good learning habits early. If you would like your child to start enjoying their French again, please contact me!

More generally, for Secondary School Students:
I am a specialist secondary school French tutor whose aim is to assist students in achieving their full potential in French. I have tutored students from schools such as Sydney Grammar, The Shore School, Queenwood, Abbotsleigh, Loretto Kirribilli, Ravenswood, S.C.E.C.G.S. Redlands, S.C.E.G.S Darlinghusrt, Roseville Ladies College, Riverview, Wenona and others. I am intimately familiar with the standards required and curriculum at all levels as set by the Board of Studies, as well as having form awareness of individual schools.

For University Students:
I know how hard languages can get at university, and how quickly! I tutor first and second year university French students to help them stay on top of the lightening pace, and help explain what's really going on with the nuts and bolts of the language. If you're struggling with your tertiary language studies, then help is at hand!

For all students:
I get results with my students because we work on improving all of their language skills but also on developing assessment and examination strategies that impress markers and really work.
I am a qualified trainer and am patient and understanding with my students. I develop good relationships with my students and provide a relaxed atmosphere which assists in the speaking of a foreign language. I provide regular progress reports to parents.
I am an Australian who is a fluent speaker of French, having studied and worked in France for several years. My French is of a native speaker level and authenticity but because I have learnt the language myself, I understand the challenges involved in learning a foreign language and I don�t assume knowledge.

I offer the following:
For HSC students:
- HSC and assessment preparation (Beginners, Continuers and Extension levels)
- Focus on HSC Beginners, Continuers speaking skills and Extension monologue skills
- Teaching Neuilly Sa Mere short answer questions and empathy tasks

For all students:
- Writing and reading comprehension development
- Conversation and confidence-building exercises (all levels)
- Grammar and language drills
- Listening practice
- Examination strategies and techniques

By using me as a tutor, you will also have exposure to other group lessons and workshops that I run, particularly in the school holidays, which can be a great option for developing your language skills.
