I enjoy tutoring because not only is it an opportunity to share in subjects which I am passionate about but it is also a challenge. I take great pleasure in working out the best way a student works, which explanation technique is most suitable, which areas are their strengths and then tailoring the way I tutor to suit that particular child. For nearly a year I have been tutoring a 13 year old boy. I helped him through his CE Spanish and French and since then he has chosen French for GCSE and we have been working together to bolster his confidence and ability. I enjoy working with Miles because although our sessions can be quite challenging (he suffers from ADHD) we both gain great satisfaction from solving a linguistic labyrinth. We work on all aspects such as reading, writing, translation and speaking, and having recently completed a degree in both French and Spanish I am wary of the common errors, early pit-falls and the importance of the grammatical basics. Since then I've tutored various other students of various ages, including some SEN students, and have enjoyed working with all of them. Prior to going to university I also worked as an Au Pair to two Italian children which including helping the elder with her homework. As I've previously mentioned I respect the importance of the fundamentals and so would always want to ensure that whomsoever I tutor feels confident and has a strong foundation in the basics of whichever language. I strongly believe that without this you will never be able to elevate your linguistic ability above that of 13+. During lessons I like for things to be casual as I think it makes the pupil more likely to be open if they're struggling with something. In a similar vein I often ask what they would like to focus on and what they think their particular weaknesses are as I think it creates a better environment for self-awareness and therefore increases the likelihood of the pupil being able to spot their own mistakes. Ultimately I would only ever want to be seen as an ally rather that a chore for the pupil and so like to get along and be friendly with students.

Approved French Teacher

My name is Marie and I am a French native speaker. I’ve lived, studied and worked in France, Spain and England. I learnt Spanish as part of my degree (3years) and lived in Spain for five years. I learnt English mainly through immersion and learnt Hindi through self-study (more than 10 years) and visits to India. I spent 5 month in India to teach English and learn Hindi. I have a French post graduate degree in Teaching MFL and the PGCE in MFL. I have taught in a variety of contexts: Private Language Schools, State Schools, businesses and home tutoring, both face to face and online. I’ve been teaching languages – and learning - for the best part of the last 25 years and through these experiences I can, not only empathise with the doubts and struggles of my learners but also make very informed decisions about their needs and I am therefore able to teach them and help them to learn more effectively. The teacher’s role, it seems to me, is, above all, to facilitate and foster learning in a positive and productive environment. I love one-to-one or small group teaching as it is a great opportunity to create a personalised dynamic and to use materials in a more relevant, real-world way without the pressure of the competitive, over-crowded classroom but with the benefit of a hands-on approach. I use a variety of materials which range from traditional published text-books to more authentic materials. The choice of material depends on the age of the learner, their needs and interests. For younger learners the material tends to be more visual and interactive, for learners studying for state school exams the material will be more traditional and for older learners the material tends to be more functional and /or professional. The material in all cases ensures practice in the receptive skills of reading and listening and the productive skills of speaking and writing.

A-Level French tuition

Studying French at A-Level is a great investment and is guaranteed to have positive implications for you and your future. Throughout the course, students will acquire a wealth of subject-specific knowledge, strengthen their language abilities and also establish numerous transferable skills that will help them to succeed throughout their academic career and beyond.

French is a particularly rewarding language to learn, namely because it is prevalent in so many countries. According to a report published by the British Council in 2013, 49% of businesses seek employees who can speak French, so embarking on French A-Level is a choice that will have a positive and long-lasting impact on any student’s education and career, whether that be at home or overseas.

Whilst fulfilling, languages are also amongst one of the hardest subjects to study at A-Level, and are certainly a big step up from GCSE. Students are expected to up their game in terms of their vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening and writing abilities. Tutor House can provide students with expert A-Level French tutors who will assist students in their studies, whilst also helping them to cultivate skills that will be applicable both inside and outside of academia.

A-Level French Course Breakdown

French A-Level is a highly rewarding course to study but is also undeniably challenging. The course constitutes an integrated study focusing on language, culture and society, and teaches students how these three factions interweave. Students will be required to demonstrate a comprehensive French vocabulary, whilst also exhibiting proficiency in French writing, speaking, reading and listening.

At this stage of study, students must also be able to discuss complex French societal issues, including current affairs, artistic cultures and the French political system. A-Level French students will be taught how to discuss the intricacies of these issues at length, whilst simultaneously maintaining a high level of grammar and vocabulary. Working alongside a private French tutor is the best way to make sure that students have a comprehensive understanding of the syllabus, and that they are developing all the necessary skills to prosper in their studies and beyond.

A-Level French is a linear course and is studied over a two year period. It assesses a student's capabilities through a range of mediums, with the end of course examinations consisting of written, oral and multiple choice exams. Students studying for a French A-Level will also be asked to engage with French literary texts and films that compliment the rest of their studies, in order to further hone their skill set and ensure that they are able to use the language spontaneously and in a wide range of instances.

With university places becoming increasingly coveted, enlisting the help of a private A-Level French tutor can make a huge difference to a student’s overall A-Level experience.

Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going - Rita Mae Brown

Benefits of studying French at A-Level

Studying French at A-Level has a whole host of benefits, not only in terms of the language skills it provides, but also in terms of the opportunities it affords to those who achieve top grades in this taxing subject. Your A-Level French tutor will make sure that you are getting the most out of your studies by helping you to attain all the necessary skills in order to excel not only in your French exams, but throughout the rest of your academic and professional career.

Skills - A-Level French is a step up from GCSE in every respect, and asks students to take a far more independent approach to learning, encouraging them to do their own research in order to strengthen their skills and achieve top grades. Students will exit their French A-Level experience having significantly developed their language knowledge and cultivated their linguistic abilities so that they can communicate fluently and spontaneously in French. They will be able to use French to effectively answer and ask questions, and develop well-structured arguments surrounding societal and cultural issues.

French A-Level also gives students a wide range of transferable skills, including the ability to effectively analyse, respond critically, and conduct effective research. French A-Level also does wonders for a students confidence and communication skills. Unlike most other A-Levels, French has a whole module dedicated to teaching students to speak clearly and fluently whilst presenting a critical argument on the topic they’re addressing. Public speaking is a highly valued skill, and being able to communicate effectively in multiple languages is sure to set you apart from the crowd. Moreover, French A-Level will equip students with cross-cultural awareness and the ability to recognize, appreciate and discuss the complex relationship that exists between language, culture and meaning.
University - A-Levels are the building blocks from which many students will embark on their university education, so it is essential to ensure that they achieve the best results that they can at this vital stage of their academic career. Studying French A-Level is a prerequisite for many University degrees, with courses that incorporate French ranging from Pure French to Modern Languages and Cultures. Studying French at A-Level also provides students with the perfect base from which to embark upon a Joint Honours degree, such as French and Economics, meaning that a plethora of exciting subject opportunities are at your fingertips.

  • Cambridge University
  • Durham University
  • Oxford University
  • St Andrews University
  • King’s College London

Hire a private A-Level French tutor and make sure you make the right choices for you.
  • Career - Due to its various assessment methods and its taxing syllabus, A-Level French not only equips students with unrivalled French language abilities but also provides a number of transferable skills, such as critical thinking, research methods and creativity - all of which are incredibly valuable going forth in the education process and on into the workplace.

If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you.

    I enjoy tutoring because not only is it an opportunity to share in subjects which I am passionate about but it is also a challenge. I take great pleasure in working out the best way a student works, which explanation technique is most suitable, which areas are their strengths and then tailoring the way I tutor to suit that particular child. For nearly a year I have been tutoring a 13 year old boy. I helped him through his CE Spanish and French and since then he has chosen French for GCSE and we have been working together to bolster his confidence and ability. I enjoy working with Miles because although our sessions can be quite challenging (he suffers from ADHD) we both gain great satisfaction from solving a linguistic labyrinth. We work on all aspects such as reading, writing, translation and speaking, and having recently completed a degree in both French and Spanish I am wary of the common errors, early pit-falls and the importance of the grammatical basics. Since then I've tutored various other students of various ages, including some SEN students, and have enjoyed working with all of them. Prior to going to university I also worked as an Au Pair to two Italian children which including helping the elder with her homework. As I've previously mentioned I respect the importance of the fundamentals and so would always want to ensure that whomsoever I tutor feels confident and has a strong foundation in the basics of whichever language. I strongly believe that without this you will never be able to elevate your linguistic ability above that of 13+. During lessons I like for things to be casual as I think it makes the pupil more likely to be open if they're struggling with something. In a similar vein I often ask what they would like to focus on and what they think their particular weaknesses are as I think it creates a better environment for self-awareness and therefore increases the likelihood of the pupil being able to spot their own mistakes. Ultimately I would only ever want to be seen as an ally rather that a chore for the pupil and so like to get along and be friendly with students.

    I enjoy tutoring because not only is it an opportunity to share in subjects which I am passionate about but it is also a challenge. I take great pleasure in working out the best way a student works, which explanation technique is most suitable, which areas are their strengths and then tailoring the way I tutor to suit that particular child. For nearly a year I have been tutoring a 13 year old boy. I helped him through his CE Spanish and French and since then he has chosen French for GCSE and we have been working together to bolster his confidence and ability. I enjoy working with Miles because although our sessions can be quite challenging (he suffers from ADHD) we both gain great satisfaction from solving a linguistic labyrinth.

    My name is Marie and I am a French native speaker. I’ve lived, studied and worked in France, Spain and England. I learnt Spanish as part of my degree (3years) and lived in Spain for five years. I learnt English mainly through immersion and learnt Hindi through self-study (more than 10 years) and visits to India. I spent 5 month in India to teach English and learn Hindi. I have a French post graduate degree in Teaching MFL and the PGCE in MFL. I have taught in a variety of contexts: Private Language Schools, State Schools, businesses and home tutoring, both face to face and online. I’ve been teaching languages – and learning - for the best part of the last 25 years and through these experiences I can, not only empathise with the doubts and struggles of my learners but also make very informed decisions about their needs and I am therefore able to teach them and help them to learn more effectively. The teacher’s role, it seems to me, is, above all, to facilitate and foster learning in a positive and productive environment. I love one-to-one or small group teaching as it is a great opportunity to create a personalised dynamic and to use materials in a more relevant, real-world way without the pressure of the competitive, over-crowded classroom but with the benefit of a hands-on approach. I use a variety of materials which range from traditional published text-books to more authentic materials. The choice of material depends on the age of the learner, their needs and interests. For younger learners the material tends to be more visual and interactive, for learners studying for state school exams the material will be more traditional and for older learners the material tends to be more functional and /or professional. The material in all cases ensures practice in the receptive skills of reading and listening and the productive skills of speaking and writing.

    A-Level French tuition

    Studying French at A-Level is a great investment and is guaranteed to have positive implications for you and your future. Throughout the course, students will acquire a wealth of subject-specific knowledge, strengthen their language abilities and also establish numerous transferable skills that will help them to succeed throughout their academic career and beyond.

    French is a particularly rewarding language to learn, namely because it is prevalent in so many countries. According to a report published by the British Council in 2013, 49% of businesses seek employees who can speak French, so embarking on French A-Level is a choice that will have a positive and long-lasting impact on any student’s education and career, whether that be at home or overseas.

    Whilst fulfilling, languages are also amongst one of the hardest subjects to study at A-Level, and are certainly a big step up from GCSE. Students are expected to up their game in terms of their vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening and writing abilities. Tutor House can provide students with expert A-Level French tutors who will assist students in their studies, whilst also helping them to cultivate skills that will be applicable both inside and outside of academia.

    A-Level French Course Breakdown

    French A-Level is a highly rewarding course to study but is also undeniably challenging. The course constitutes an integrated study focusing on language, culture and society, and teaches students how these three factions interweave. Students will be required to demonstrate a comprehensive French vocabulary, whilst also exhibiting proficiency in French writing, speaking, reading and listening.

    At this stage of study, students must also be able to discuss complex French societal issues, including current affairs, artistic cultures and the French political system. A-Level French students will be taught how to discuss the intricacies of these issues at length, whilst simultaneously maintaining a high level of grammar and vocabulary. Working alongside a private French tutor is the best way to make sure that students have a comprehensive understanding of the syllabus, and that they are developing all the necessary skills to prosper in their studies and beyond.

    A-Level French is a linear course and is studied over a two year period. It assesses a student's capabilities through a range of mediums, with the end of course examinations consisting of written, oral and multiple choice exams. Students studying for a French A-Level will also be asked to engage with French literary texts and films that compliment the rest of their studies, in order to further hone their skill set and ensure that they are able to use the language spontaneously and in a wide range of instances.

    With university places becoming increasingly coveted, enlisting the help of a private A-Level French tutor can make a huge difference to a student’s overall A-Level experience.

    If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date.
