I am highly motivated in teaching my native language and I hope to share my enthusiasm with learners. I have now been teaching French over the last ten years and my experience extends to different ages and levels, from key Stage 2 more recently to Key Stage 3,4,5 and even adults. If you are struggling or need some help to work to the best of your ability, I will strive to get you there, developing further your skills and practising on your speaking as well as your grammatical knowledge to improve your accuracy. My teaching methods vary quite a lot depending on the age of the learner but I aim at making my teaching interactive, using songs when possible, role-plays and lots of reading and writing practice using interesting resources. I hope I can help you achieve the best results.
We have been tutored by Cathie for the last several months starting from the basics . Her patience and support has been very reassuring and built both mine and my husbands ability and confidence. I would recommend Cathie to anyone. Lana
My son Alex has just finished his French lessons with Cathie because his GCSE's start next week. The last few months Alex has really enjoyed his sessions with Cathie and his confidence has grown tremendously. I'm in no doubt that Cathie has fully prepared him for his forthcoming exams. I would recommend Cathie wholeheartedly.
Excellent, professional and friendly sessions.
My son is buzzing after each session
Cathy is teaching both myself and my husband . We are beginners ! She is well prepared and supportive as well as being patient and helpful . I would recommend Cathy as a tutor
Cathie has been wonderful with my son and really helped him to build on his language skills thus making him more confident in the classroom. She is always jovial, patient and encouraging. She makes every session interesting and relevant. My son says "I like Cathie, she makes me laugh and makes French interesting".
A brilliant native speaking French tutor,
Very prompt and efficient lesson delivery,
Very constructive and structured lesson for my child who is showing excellent progression,
I would HIGHLY recommend this tutor ,
I was very happy with my lesson with Cathie, especially because she is French which I believe makes a great difference rather than having an English person teaching French.She was punctual, prepared and very focused on us getting on with it. She was also very patient with me which I appreciated. I hope that I can resume my lessons and would like my tutor to be Cathie, she is a first class tutor.
Second lesson with Cathie today. We are enjoying our sessions which are relaxed a fun. Her interactive style compliments with our aim to improve our French language skills for every day situations. Would recommend.
