About me

Hi! I'm Octave, a 21 year-old French student studying Geography at the University of Cambridge. I have been tutoring English to French kids in my neighbourhood for the last couple of years and have really loved the experience. Seeing my students progressively acquire more confidence in conversation was very gratifying, and I decided to join mytutor to have the opportunity to teach while being at university.

Hi! I'm Octave, a 21 year-old French student studying Geography at the University of Cambridge. I have been tutoring English to French kids in my neighbourhood for the last couple of years and have really loved the experience. Seeing my students progressively acquire more confidence in conversation was very gratifying, and I decided to join mytutor to have the opportunity to teach while being at university.


My proficiency level in French is native (reassuringly), and advanced in Spanish (C1 diploma obtained in July 2015). I received A* equivalents in both French litterature and Spanish in the French Baccalauréat. 


I'm passionate about languages, and I hope to share my passion with all my students, to motivate them, and to inspire them to travel and use the language they are learning abroad. I believe that learning a language should not just be viewed as an academic necessity, but rather as an exciting opportunity to acquire a valuable life skill.

About my sessions

I believe that adaptability is the most important thing when it comes to language teaching. No two students are the same, and I want to make sure that all of my lessons will enable my student to get the most out of the class. During the free taster lesson, I will make sure to fully understand the motivations and goals of each student, and organise my teaching to make sure that these goals are met.

I feel capable of adapting my teaching style to the student. Last year, I tutored three students in English. Two of them were native french speakers, who were learning English as a second language. With them, my focus was on the understanding of key grammatical elements the development of precise situational vocabulary. One of my students was a native speaker of English. In this case, my classes were aimed towards the discovery of literary works, and the development of a critical approach towards literary texts.

Octave has been an amazing Spanish teacher and he has brilliantly taught me, from a beginners level, to a level where I am able to understand and form conversations in Spanish with anyone. For the couple of months we have been meeting and improving my Spanish and we had brushed through the grammar and tenses swiftly but efficiently and he had helped me with my writing, reading, listening and speaking skills in Spanish. Octave has a very friendly ,approachable and comical personality which kept our lessons fun and positive. He had rapidly adjusted to my pace of learning but had ensured that I reached my full potential while giving supportive encouragement. Octave is the right person to go to if you want to ensure high grades and after our cheerful lessons I am much more confident for my iGCSE exams as I am 100% sure I will achieve a grade I would like it thanks to Octave!!! Thank you for everything Octave!
