About my sessions

My aim during the sessions is to make them fun and personal, full of anecdotes and interesting facts to aid memory. This is something you cannot get in classroom situations where the teacher cannot dedicate their time to one pupil. Most importantly, I'm hoping my love of and enthusiasm for my subjects will inspire my tutees, a love that can only be gained through my years of experience. I think visual and interactive tasks are important, which means I'm a great fan of worksheets and a...

My aim during the sessions is to make them fun and personal, full of anecdotes and interesting facts to aid memory. This is something you cannot get in classroom situations where the teacher cannot dedicate their time to one pupil. Most importantly, I'm hoping my love of and enthusiasm for my subjects will inspire my tutees, a love that can only be gained through my years of experience. I think visual and interactive tasks are important, which means I'm a great fan of worksheets and activities that I will prepare before every lesson and tailor to the needs of the pupil. For pupils doing exams, I will source past papers that we can practice during the sessions. In terms of homework, I am happy to prepare and set pieces depending on what the parent(s) require.  Lastly, no task is too challenging, so contact me with any tutoring request...I look forwards to meeting you!

Florianne helped me so much with my English GCSE. English Literature became especially stressful during the exam period and I wasn't achieving the grades that I wanted. Florianne really turned that around; she motivated and guided me through the entire course. I was so ecstatic when I found out I'd achieved a grade 9! She is such an incredible tutor.

Both of my daughters worked with Florianne in the final run up to their French exams this year. I cannot recommend her highly enough. To begin with she focused exactly as I requested on finding out what level my younger could hope to achieve if she took her GCSE a year early. Florianne was able to do this, she was honest and proved entirely correct. Her exam boards and syllabus knowledge was comprehensive and she was able to bring resources and use their marking schemes to inform the work as she went. My daughters had the potential to achieve at the highest level and Florianne made sure that they did. The GCSE result was a 9 and the A level result was an A*. I would add that the difficulties we sometimes experienced in timetabling lessons or me barging in at the end for a catch-up were handled brilliantly - everyone in this house is a big fan. Thank you Florianne!

Florianne has been an excellent tutor, passing on her passion and enthusiasm for literature and ensuring Zara was well prepared for the exam. Florianne is kind, reliable, enthusiastic, professional and very helpful. Zara went in to the exam confident and came out happy with how it went. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you. Update: results today, she got A* :-D :-D
