Bonjour, French Tutor for all ages and all levels (academic or leisure
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I am a French native speaker with a love for languages, learning two new ones while teaching (to put myself into my learner's shoes). I have more than 20 years experience teaching French in an FE college in London, 8 years in a primary school (as a French and Spanish visiting Tutor) and as a private tutor.
I like getting my learners to understand what they are doing, so the discovery method is the one I use most of the time. By leading learners to the right answer not only makes them proud of themselves but it also makes them remember it better. I also consider that lessons should be interesting, fun and with lots of practice.
I love sharing my knowledge of languages and how best to learn them. I also love it when my learners manage to have a conversation with each other or with me. I am also really pleased when I see children I had previously taught who are proud to tell me that they are the best in French/ Spanish in their new secondary school.
Where do I go from here?
You can send Linda B a message through Sherpa and they will usually get back to you within 24 hours. You'll receive an SMS and email notification when they do so.
How do the introductions work?
Sherpa gives you the opportunity to meet our tutors in a free 20 minute introduction, which takes place through the Sherpa classroom.
How do lessons work?
All lessons take place through Sherpa's online, industry-leading classroom. This is a combination of a collaborative, real time whiteboard and a video call, like Zoom.
