My name is Giselle. I am a native French speaker and a qualified teacher (PGCE).
Tutoring experience: I have taught across the age and ability range. I set high expectations for student achievement, always seeking to challenge and motivate so as to maximise the potential of each and every learner.
I have taught in the UK for about 20 years.
Tutoring approach: I believe in adapting my teaching style and content to each student so that you can learn as much as possible of the French that is relevant to you, be it to prepare for a trip to France, to brush up on your grammar, to help you with your exams or simply to keep up your existing level of fluency. Every lesson will be tailor-made to suit your needs and build on your strengths and to tackle what you are not so confident with.
PGCE in modern foreign languages (Exeter University)
English degree (Bordeaux University France)
Absolutely brilliant and easy going teaching methods that worked well for me. Would highly recommend.
I have found Giselle very helpful and friendly, and the lessons varied, and tailored to my level of understanding. I feel that my French has already improved after just 4 lessons.
We have loved every minute of our lessons with Gisele ; they have been fun , informative and at just the right pace for our family group. Learning French with Gisele is something I would recommend to anyone as she is a very accomplished and patient teacher.
