Sydney tutor in French

Are you looking for a professional French tutor who actually gets results? LOOK NO FURTHER.
I am an experienced French teacher 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".

Reach your full potential in French...
Equally, if you aren't a top student and you are really struggling with your French, then help is at hand. I can explain difficult language concepts well, show you how to improve your accuracy and generally achieve a better standard in French. And we can have fun while we do it!

A lasting, positive relationship...
I am also equipped to tutor younger learners; indeed I have taught many of my students over a period of several 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!

Student profile...
I have tutored numerous students in years 7-12 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 NESA, as well as having form awareness of individual schools.

Year 11-12 students...
- HSC and assessment preparation for all levels of the course - Beginners, Continuers and Extension levels
- Improving confidence, fluency and accuracy for HSC Continuers and Beginners speaking skills - Coaching for HSC Extension monologue tasks which are really tricky and so often simply not taught in school!!!
- Teaching Neuilly Sa Mere short answer questions and empathy tasks
All students...
- Writing and reading comprehension development
- Conversation and confidence-building exercises (all levels)
- Grammar and language drills
- Listening practice
- Examination strategies and techniques
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 know how hard languages can get at university, and how quickly! I tutor 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 finding tertiary language studies a bit of a stretch, then please contact me. I can help!

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. 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.
