I am a native French speaker, originally from Toulouse, and I am currently a student at the University of Edinburgh. I love teaching and transmitting my language. I have given lessons to kids learning French for the first time, as well as University students wanting to keep practicing. I have also helped friends study for their University exams. I am very organised and reliable, and I prepare each of my lessons thoroughly. It is important for me that lessons take place in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This way, lessons stay enjoyable and progression is faster. I tailor the content of my lessons to the needs and abilities of each student. I can focus my lessons on conversation, while introducing new vocabularies of expressions, if the student wants to improve its speaking. I can also offer more academic lessons, with exercises that focus more on grammar and written classes. As a French native speaker, students will acquire French vocabulary that they can use in real world, and become familiar with the subtleties of the French language. Between each lesson, I always recap the new vocabulary learnt and make notes on the mistakes made. I usually give videos to watch, texts to read or questions to think about so that they can be discussed during the next lesson. On demand I can also give written assessments to complete between lessons, and then correct them. I keep my lessons fun, interesting and enjoyable :) My lessons usually last 1 hour, but they can be longer or shorter on request.

I am a Linguistics and Spanish graduate from Newcastle University who is passionate about learning and teaching new languages. My love for languages first began whilst at school, where I studied French, German and Spanish. During this time, I had a preference for the more logical aspects of language learning, such as grammar and translation. This lead me to study Linguistics at university, where I analysed language in a scientific way, helping me to understand how languages are learned. Having sat A-level and GCSE exams for three languages in 2018, I know both the A-level and GCSE syllabi well. At A-level, I achieved an A* in Spanish, an A in French, a B in German, and an A in Maths. At GCSE, I achieved an A* in all three languages. In my free time, I love to travel and having lived in Madrid as part of my year abroad, I have a high command of the Spanish language. During this time, I worked in a translation agency, and therefore have a valuable background in professional translation. That said, I am also familiar with what examiners look for in A-level and GCSE exams, which can somewhat differ to what professional translators may look for. As well as Spanish, I also showed a strong flair for French while at school. I have been tutoring A-level French privately to a Year 13 student for the last year, which I found hugely rewarding and allowed me to rediscover my love for the language. I thoroughly enjoyed the tutoring experience and am looking forward to helping more students achieve their desired grades. I like to tailor my lessons to student needs and focus on areas where they feel they need the most practice, however if they prefer a more structured approach and prefer to be told what to do (as was the case for me when I was at school!), I am more than happy to adapt, and will ensure that all subject areas are covered.

Hi! Salut ! Ciao! I have many years of experience in mainstream (primary and secondary) and special schools and have been freelance tutoring for over eight years. I have developed an active, learner-centred approach (and possibly an unflappable demeanour?!!) My aim is to help to build brave and curious-minded learners who don't get in a tizz about tricky learning elements.... Much of my experience has been in a SEN environment so I am particularly happy working with students with unique learning styles. I have an Oxford degree in French and Italian and have worked in Italy and written a children's early learning French book. Thanks/Merci/Grazie!

Hi! I am Eleni, a passionate linguist expert. I have been teaching Modern Foreign Languages for more than 20 years. More specifically, I teach German, French, English (EFL), Italian and Greek in any language level. I can also teach Spanish to GCSE level and I speak some Japanese too. I am a qualified UK school teacher with QTS and PGCE and I am also a CIOL Member and a Chartered Linguist. What's more, I studied Law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and I have the highest diplomas (C2) in all the languages I teach. I have lived and worked all around Europe and I am currently based in Thessaloniki. You can find out more about my education by checking out my profile. What is also important to know is that languages are my greatest passion and I've been studying them for all my life. I've been a teacher for more than 20 years and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to impart my knowledge to my students in a fun, interesting and engaging way that is always adapted to the personal needs of every student. I have also huge experience in exam preparation. I have prepared hundreds of students for their language exams and I can guarantee your success in your A-Level or GCSE exams and I should also mention that many of my students are now studying at some of the top Universities of the UK, Cambridge and Oxford just to mention two examples. I can also prepare you for international language exams in any language level proficiency (A1 - C2) for any of the official providers (e.g. Goethe Institute for German). When I do not teach I... teach voluntarily! :-) I organise classes for children that cannot afford it and I have also taught to an orphanage. I try to participate to as many voluntary actions as I can, especially for homeless people. I love nature, the countryside, animals, I try to cultivate my own tomatoes and I would love to learn horse riding. I urgently need some time and a tutor for the latter! Either you are a student or an adult, either you want to prepare yourself for exams or you would like to learn a language that will help you professionally or just for fun, I would love to meet you and start our language journey together. So, take the first step and reach out to me. I promise you, it will be the first step of many!

I have a degree and Master in English with French as additional language. I am a native speaker and have been teaching in state schools and the private sector for nearly 30 years. I teach from Primary to A level. Tutoring allows me to prepare bespoke lessons taking into account the needs and interests of each student. I only teach a maximum of 6 lessons per week to allow time to prepare. thoroughly. I have taught all UK exam boards including Cambridge IGCSE. I try to use authentic material as much as possible so that through learning French the students familiarise themselves with the culture of France and French speaking countries. In my free time I enjoy doing sport and reading.

I have a degree in French and I have been teaching French for over 20 years in co-ed secondary schools up to GCSE level. I am also a leader of year so am experienced with working with young people. It’s a fantastic job having previously worked in blue chip companies in London. I like to cover all 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading & writing) as well as using past paper examples, models & exemplars. It’s important to break learning down into manageable chunks and practice key words and phrases and make sure students can transfer language to differ ent topics. I’m also a mum to 3 daughters (23, 20 & 17) and enjoy kayaking, walking, watching tv & films & cooking and Tik tok!!

Salut! I am Victoria and I am a French native speaker and tutor. I am from Belgium and yes we speak French there! So while I might be more waffle than millefeuilles, I am looking forward to teaching you the language of Victor Hugo and Baudelaire. I believe learning a new language is opening yourself to another world. We can talk about topics of your choice for the most advanced of you or learn from the beginning. I have always struggled with learning a new language, especially English, so I completely understand the struggle you might have with learning a new language!

My name is Lara and I am a tutor from Maidenhead, England. Qualifications: B.A Art History B.A French Literature and Language Masters degree (MRes) in Assyriology Current PhD Candidate at Oxford University French and English: I would love to teach you if you would like to learn English or French language aspects such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. I know I can help you with your speaking fluency and accuracy. I have been teaching languages for two years at a variety of levels. Most of my students improve their language skills and can express themselves and their ideas concisely and effectively. I do this by motivating my students with new teaching approaches that focus on communicative activities. I want my student to feel they have the confidence to speak the language in the real world. I also work with GCSE and A-Level students on exam response and literature analysis. I specialise in helping students identify and understand language devices. Geography: Similarly to higher-level English and French, we look at exam questions and examiners reports to highlight the skills and knowledge needed to attain the top grades. I use exam papers to identify areas of weakness so we can then work on specific skills or topics. We can then revise topics and make revision materials. Specialist areas include coasts and earth hazards, but I have experience teaching all modules. I also offer tuition in Art History and Physical Education. I will provide my students with positive and constructive feedback, and an achievable goal timeline. If you want to study with me, you can contact me and schedule your lesson. Hope to hear from you soon.

How do you say 'tutor' in French?

The French for 'tutor' is 'professeur particulier'. For 'private lesson', you would say 'cours particulier'.

Is a French tutor worth it?

A French tutor will help you conquer the areas you struggle with, whether that's grammar, pronunciation, comprehension or a mixture of everything. They will also focus specifically on what you're hoping to get out of your French journey, allowing you to be as productive as possible in your learning. Students find that, with a private tutor, their confidence goes up exponentially and they make substantially more progress than they would have as a solo learner.

Why Tutor House French tutors in Cambridge?

Our French tutors are committed to harnessing the 1:1 learning format to maximise students' potential and guarantee them the language success they deserve. Before our tutors start teaching with us, they are required to undergo a thorough training session and all in-person tutors are DBS checked.

When should I start French lessons?

You can start French lessons whenever you like - the sooner the better. It's all too easy to put off learning a new skill but once you start, you'll be so grateful you kept the delay to a minimum.

Want to improve your French in Cambridge?

We've all most likely fantasised about moving to France at least once in our idle moments. Macarons, romance and bichons frisés - what's not to love? Beyond the exquisite clichés, French is a complex and beautiful language, and becoming fluent in it is a wonderful goal to set yourself. Quite apart form the excitement and gratification of learning a foreign language, a knowledge of French will look excellent on your CV, particularly  if you work at an international level.

 

Pursuing fluency in a language is not for the faint-hearted. It comes with many twists and turns and you will most likely encounter a shortage of motivation at several points on your journey. Your Cambridge-based French tutor will support you during any and all moments of difficulty you may come across.  If you're a beginner, they will help you traverse those initial barriers that include pronunciation difficulties, conjugation confusion and wondering why French always seems to be spoke so fast! As you progress further, they will break down more challenging grammatical structures, such as the subjunctive and past historic tense, and make sure your theoretical understanding of the language is as solid as possible.

 

Fortunately, it's not just theory that your tutor will be helping you with. One of the most challenging parts of learning a language is speaking. This is where tutoring offers perhaps its most stand-out benefit. 1:1 tuition allows you to build your speaking confidence in a safe and supported environment. Your French tutor will both encourage and challenge you, allowing you to progress far quicker than you would in a traditional classroom environment. The thought of conversing in French might intimidate you but a hiring a tutor offers an excellent transition from a protected environment to real-world French. 

 

So how do you start private French lessons in Cambridge? Contact our educational team to discuss your specific requirements so they can match you with the perfect tutor for you. Alternatively, you can browse our extensive selection of French tutors yourself and pick one who you would like to proceed with. Lessons  start at £20 per hour. We look forward to hearing from you!
