About me

I am a graduate of MML (French and Spanish) from the University of Cambridge. I studied at the École Normale Supérieure on my year abroad and I am greatly fascinated by every aspect of languages. I have studied French for twelve years now and have benefited greatly from the world-class education I have received at both Cambridge and the ENS.

I am a graduate of MML (French and Spanish) from the University of Cambridge. I studied at the École Normale Supérieure on my year abroad and I am greatly fascinated by every aspect of languages. I have studied French for twelve years now and have benefited greatly from the world-class education I have received at both Cambridge and the ENS. I have adopted a meticulous approach to language study as I have sought to improve in all areas. It is very important not to neglect any area when studying a foreign language! Grammar forms the bedrock of effective communication, as does having a good vocabulary. Learning to express oneself naturally in a foreign language and avoiding anglicisms is always extremely important. I will encourage my students to read French literature and follow the French news to improve their vocabulary and grasp of idiomatic expressions. I shall also encourage them to watch French films and listen to French radio as these are great ways of again acquiring vocabulary but also honing one's listening comprehension skills and pronunciation. French pronunciation is not always easy for native English speakers and that is something I will encourage my students to work on so that they can express themselves more naturally in the language.

About my sessions

This will help me to identify areas to target and also encourage my students to be self-reflective. Constant evaluation is an important part of the learning process.

Above all, I am here to help the student. Therefore, I will always look to ask students what they hope to gain from my sessions. This will help me to identify areas to target and also encourage my students to be self-reflective. Constant evaluation is an important part of the learning process. I will be very happy to mark work, work on pronunciation with students and suggest resources that students can use to develop their language skills outside of the lessons. This is critical because language-learning does require personal diligence and can be a time-consuming yet very enjoyable process. I will look to remind students of things we have covered in previous sessions so that we can both follow their progression and so that they can retain what they have learnt.
