About me

About me:

I am a postgraduate law student at the University of Law in Manchester, and I studied Law with French at Bristol University (I graduated in 2017). I have always loved all things French, especially speaking, and living in Bordeaux only reinforced that! My love of French was also largely inspired by teachers so I hope that my tutorials will instill that love in you, too.


I am very friendly and enthusiastic, and I have a lot of experience working with children, as I have au paired with french children.


The Sessions:

During the sessions, you will guide what we cover- so tell me what you need to work on, and we can work from there!


I will use quizzes and practice exercises to explain a concept, until you are confident enough to explain it to me. I may even set you homework, or make quizzes for you so that you can practice grammar and learn vocabulary and facts easily in your own time.

For those studying A-level French, I would be more than happy to practice speaking with you, and even to conduct mock exams.


What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! Remember to tell me your exam board, the topics you're studying and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

As the lessons will be guided by you, it is important for you to tell me if there is a particular topic or assignment you need to work on so I can plan accordingly.

Examples of what we might do:


-Go over any homework or revise a previous concept.

-Learn some new grammar where we will work through real life examples

-A vocabulary test


For A-level speaking classes, we will discuss an A-level topic each week which will be chosen by you. However, to keep an element of spontaneity and fluency in there, I will throw in random topics each time.

For all students: I will set you homework, including: quizlet quizzes for vocabulary, podcasts and translation/ grammar exercises. Sometimes I may even ask you to watch a French film, or read a short story to discuss. Closer to exam periods I will look at written practice papers or practice essays.


How will I help students achieve their goals

In our first session, we will establish a list of your goals and will discuss them and our lessons will be focussed around these. We will re-evaluate these goals intermittently.


How will I measure progress

By setting homework, marking it, and then providing tailored feedback in the session


What do I think is important to encourage learning

To develop a love of France and French culture by embracing all things French!

Questions Madeleine has answered

What is the subjunctive?

The subjunctive is a mood used in French to express emotions or ideas which are uncertain or subjective. Examples include to express doubt, emotions or will/ wanting.There isn't really an English equivalent any more, except for the odd few phrases, such as 'If I were' rather than 'if I was.' This is why English students find it particularly difficult to wrap their head around the concept, but unfortunately it can't be avoided because the French actually do use it all the time!The subjunctive in French only appears either in the present tense, or in the past tense (passé composé), and has certain endings to match.Another really important thing to remember is that the subjunctive very rarely appears without a 'trigger', and is therefore nearly always found in dependent clauses introduced by que or qui. For example: 'il faut que j'aille (present subjunctive of avoir), or 'je ne pense pas que je doive y aller' (present subjunctive of devoir). Unfortunately there is no shortcut to remembering the majority of these triggers, and they simply have to be learnt through study and endless practice! The subjunctive is a mood used in French to express emotions or ideas which are uncertain or subjective.
