Lessons are tailored to suit each student in the best way. I work on the 4 skills (speaking, listening, comprehension and writing) as well as grammar and pronunciation unless students have differents requirements or do not need one of the skills, writing for example.
Level permitting I always start a class with some speaking practice as it is obviously essential. I then go on with the set topic for that day whether it is vocabulary, structures or grammar. I often losely follow a text book as it is nice for students to have a reference to go back to between classes but I also like to add very varied materials from current affairs to culture or cooking adapting my choice of materials to my students’ preferences or professional or personal requirements.
Conversation classes are usually based on articles which are read beforehand giving an opportunity to reuse new vocabulary and structures during the class.
Last but not least I am always available to my students in between classes would they need some help to finish an essay or talk to their French plumber…
I am a French teacher and a French speech therapist/dyslexia tutor with 40 years experience, in Paris and London. Along these years I have taught all levels and ages, one to one or in groups, face to face or on the telephone or online, at my students’ home or in company.
I was also Head of French in a London private school in London for 5 years teaching the whole shool from age 4 to age 11 as well as designing their French curriculum.
My activities vary from teaching French as a foreign language to homework help or academic/additional support (cours de soutien) for children following the French curriculum in the French schools in London and speech therapy/dyslexia tutoring for French speaking students.
I am very pleased to say that my students usually achieve top marks. I am very thorough in my approach but even though we’re working hard it is also in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
My rate is £40 per hour (plus £5 travel costs outside London zones 1 & 2). I also teach on skype.
I am a fully qualified French speech therapist and dyslexia tutor (12 years experience in France) with additional training from Linguarama and the French Institute in London to teach French as a foreign language (28 years experience in London).
I have also passed the Cambridge Advanced Proficiency in English (CAP) for my own satisfaction, went back to studying Spanish for pleasure and passed the City & Guilds levels 2 and 3 in Photography Imaging as photography is my other passion apart from teaching.
I teach all levels from age 4-5 to adults, in company, at the students' house or a convenient location.
Perfect! Fantastic first lesson! Solene is very knowledgeable and skilled! She was able to identify my daughter's specific reading difficulties and determine how to help her moving forward.
