Rumour has it that there's more to studying French than it simply being a fantastique excuse to indulge in cheese and pastries... 🥐🧀

Well, bonjour! I'm thrilled to introduce myself to you—my name is Christie, I'm a medicine student and professional science communicator. This means that I love turning tricky, and sometimes boring concepts, into stuff that's fun, engaging, and relatable (and it also means that I deeply understand the importance of communicating clearly!).

So, let me ask you: do you want to expand your conversation beyond a simple « oui oui, hon hon! » to a level that will impress your examiners (and anyone else who will listen)? Are you dreaming of perfecting that Parisian accent? Do you aspire to tackle any writing task with flair, creativity, and dare I say... confidence?

Well, after wrapping up an exciting and successful year with many year 12 students, I now have spots open for Summer holidays and 2024.

Here's a few key highlights about me:
🇫🇷 Lived and worked in Paris professionally (and yes, I ate cheese every day)
🎓 Diploma in Languages (French) from the University of Melbourne
💯 ATAR of 99.35
🩺 Currently studying medicine (previously worked as a science communicator)
👸🏼 Warm, enthusiastic, approachable, and incredibly supportive

Some highlight review snippets:
"Thank you Christie! So happy for M's milestone and can’t thank you enough for your teaching and guiding this year. You are an amazing tutor. M is very lucky to have you. I am sure he will remain in touch."
"I was really happy to recommend you as you helped me so much last year and I’m sure S will love you just as much I did 😊"
"Thank you so much for your help over the past few months, it has boosted my confidence so much and helped me do the best that I could ☺️"
"It went so well, my teacher looked so surprised!"
"Thank you Christie for another great lesson today! The girls look up to you so much and really love learning French with you. Thank you!"

Any questions, just let me know. Happy to chat to see if I could be the right fit for your tutoring needs!



I have been delighted to tutor students in French and English since 2014, both in Melbourne and in France. I know the difference firsthand that a wonderful tutor can make, and I'd love to be able to do the same for you! I have tutored children from as young as 5 up to students at university level. I am exceptionally passionate about learning languages (it's my 'spare time' hobby!) and science. I enjoy explaining concepts creatively and making sure that things 'click' with you!

"Before my tutoring with Christie, I had a lack of confidence with my French skills in my last few months of Year 12, and Christie skyrocketed my progress and results. I was originally nervous to practice my conversation skills, but Christie was very accommodating and went back to the basics to help build my confidence up to where it is now. She would always find extra resources for me in all areas of my French studies; such as reading comprehension, listening tasks, writing tasks and much more! She was super flexible with organising tutoring sessions and was always punctual. She is so knowledgeable and it was so worthwhile having her tutor me in the short time we had together. I went from hardly being able to form spoken sentences to speaking with confidence in my Year 12 oral examination in only a month! I wish I had found her sooner!"
