professional online French tutor Carine
Human, Social and Political Science, The University of Cambridge

I graduated from the University of Cambridge having studied Modern and Medieval Languages (French and beginners Russian) in my first year, and Human, Social and Political Sciences (specialising in Sociology) in my second and third years. I then completed the Japanese Language and Japan Studies Program at Nihon University (Tokyo) and passed the N2-level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. I am currently a Master's student at the Korea Advanced Institute for Science and Technology in Seoul, South Korea. I have been a professional tutor for over 5 years. In that time, I have tutored pupils ranging in age from 4 to post retirement, and have had particular success with grade improvement at GCSE, entrance into Oxbridge, and working with students to improve their confidence levels. My specialist areas are French, Japanese, Essay Writing and Entry into Oxbridge.

My tutoring style consists of first assessing a student’s level by speaking to them and using past papers. From here I create lesson plans targeting what they hope to achieve and the specific area the pupil found challenging. I believe a tutor must be reliable, creative and patient.
