Qualified, highly experienced French teacher, fast results

£55 per hour
    Hampstead, North West London

Being fluent in three languages and having initially obtained a Masters in English literature and history, I have always been fascinated by languages and their intercultural aspect. I therefore pursued my studies and subsequently obtained a second Masters in linguistics with a specialisation in French as a Foreign Language.

Although learning a foreign language does require work, I believe it is within everybody’s reach and can be a pleasant experience. There are a number of teaching methods that can be used depending on the various requirements you might have. Whatever the preferred approach, I always aim to develop practical language skills, assisting you to overcome any language barriers you might previously have had. This is achieved through learning practical and authentic French as encountered in real life situations. Based on communication first and foremost, I will develop a personal program which will assist you to gain fluency in a minimum amount of time.

Tutoring / Teaching Experience

For over 16 years now, I have helped a variety of students obtain the results they were looking for. My students have included many City professionals in well known firms as well as students who needed help with their schoolwork. My key strength is making grammatical structure accessible to everybody, therefore improving overall fluency. Although I tend to focus on communication, I will easily adjust the course contents to whatever your requirements are in order to help you obtain the best possible results in the shortest amount of time.

Suitability for tutoring
With Lise as a French tutor I managed to reach intermediate proficiency (approximately B1) from level zero while I was taking private lessons once a week for two years. Lies is extremely reliable and highly organised. Her dedication to professional conduct made the whole learning process easy for me, a City professional working in a demanding environment. Outstanding in structuring and delivering course material, Lies taylor-made the content to fit my actual skills at all times. Her understanding of didactics enabled me to stay on the optimal learning curve. Besides having deep teaching experience Lies is a versatile and skilled conversationalist. Her curious personality and excellent sense of humour make the classroom situation enjoyable and real good fun. Truly inspiring and motivating, Lies ticks all the boxes you will ever need from a language tutor! Highly recommended!
