About me

I am a French-English bilingual, having spent eight years studying at a French school in France where I sat the French Baccalaureate. I am in my third year of studying French and Italian at Cambridge University, and am currently on my year abroad as part of my studies. I have been living in Italy for the past four months and in February 2019, I'll be moving to Paris for an internship. I love my studies and being able to use my languages, a passion that I hope to share!


I have previously taught in both a 1-on-1 setting and in a classroom, which means that I have both teaching experience and an understanding of the gaps between the two settings. I hope to use this knowledge to create a learning environment that is specifically adapted to each one of my students. I am willing to work on oral and written work, as well as practice for upcoming exams or interviews.


In my spare time I love to write and travel, and occasionally get involved in theatre. I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

I will begin by getting an understanding of what areas the student would like to improve on, be it teaching something new, going over things learnt in class or offering an opportunity to practice skills that they have already mastered but hope to become more confident in. I like to build upon what the student is doing at school, so being able to see some of their work is always useful.


The lesson itself will be divided into different parts: quickly going over what has been previously learnt to ensure it is still understood; introducing a new topic (something new learnt in school that needs explaining or that I have prepared myself, depending on the student's preference); feedback (both ways) to ensure that the lesson has been helpful and enjoyable. I like to make my lessons as interactive and fun as possible so that my students enjoy their lessons and feel more confident after them.


There may be some (small) tasks to do for the next time, but I always take into account the homework that they already have from school.

Questions Gabrielle has answered

What are the possessive adjectives in French?

Possessive adjectives are adjectives that indicate to whom something belongs to. For example, in English, when you say "my house" or "his house" you use the possessive adjectives "my" or "his". If it is "my" house then it belongs to me, if it is "his" house then it belongs to him.
It works the same way in French. The French possessive adjectives are as following:MY: mon, ma, mes YOUR (singular): ton, ta, tes HIS/ HERS/ ITS: son, sa , ses OUR: notre, nosYOUR (plural): votre, vosTHEIR: leur, leurs
In French, the adjective agrees with the noun that it is paired with. For example, "my house" would be "ma maison" in French, because "maison" is feminine singular. It doesn't matter whose house it is, if there is only one house the adjective will always be feminine, singular. So if it were "his house" or "her house", both would be written as "sa maison" even though, in the first case, it is a man who owns the house, and in the second case, a woman.
