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 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!

French Present Subjunctive


First thing to know – the subjunctive is not a tense but a mood.  So if you’re getting a bit moody struggling through the subjunctive, keep reading…


Regular verbs


The present tense subjunctive is formed by conjugating –ER, -IR, and –RE verbs into the present third person plural (‘they’ or ils), removing the ‘ent’ ending and then adding the endings (-e, -es, -e, -ions, -iez, -ent) to the stem.


·      For example:

To say “it is necessary that the government understand the importance of secondary education” you take the infinitive of the verb ‘understand’ (comprendre), conjugate it (compredent), make it into a subjunctive stem (comprend-) and then add the first person singular ending, ‘e’.



Il est necessaire que* le gouvernement comprende l’importance de l’education scholaire. 

*Remember – if you’re stuck on when to the use the subjunctive, it is always placed after ‘que’.


·      Another example:


It is important that the girls finish their homework tomorrow.

Il est important que les filles finissent leurs devoirs demain. 


Nasty Irregulars


Of course, life is never that simple.  You’ve got to tackle the irregular verbs too, especially as there are many commonly used ones in the subjunctive.  The most important ones are être, avoir, faire, and aller.  Although there is a slight pattern in the subjunctive endings, as with all irregulars you just have to learn them, as the stems look quite different from the original infinitive.


Être: je sois, tu sois, il soit, nous soyons, vous soyez, ils soient.

Avoir: j’aie, tu aies, il ait, nous ayons, vous ayez, ils aient.

Faire: je fasse, tu fasses, il fasse, nous fassions, vous fassiez, ils fassent.

Aller: j’aille, tu ailles, il aille, nous allions, vous allies, ils aillent.
