Topic Expertise

My name is Stephen, I am a French native. I did a Bachelor’s Degree of Applied foreign languages at the Arts University of Aix-en-Provence and a Master’s level then got a teaching qualification from Edinburgh University.
I have been trained to teach secondary school students doing GCSE and A-Level but after 17 years teaching experience with students of all ages, all horizons and levels, I can teach beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, I can really help with the pronunciation, grammar issues of any kind and train to speak the French way.
Whether you want to learn French for school, work or holiday, I can really help you.

Before we start, I always evaluate students to know their level and to make the best appropriate course offer.
I teach through Learncube which is an awesome teaching platform for all levels and all ages. We work on the speaking, writing, listening and reading.
My classes are very lively with interactions, my students participate all the time, I make my classes interesting and effective. I am a calm, patient and motivated teacher. I encourage my students everytime they do well, it motivates them to do even better.
I teach one-on-one classes or group classes

Testimonials

He is an extraordinary French teacher for me. I enjoy learning French with him. He adjusts the contents and level when he recognizes my difficulties to understand, as I need to learn more. His deep knowledge amuses me. It’s truly worth having his French lessons.
Gyorgyi Sounia, Budapest, Hungary

Stephen is a thoughtful and trustworthy person. He is a talented teacher and has taught many students successfully with patience and skill. I would highly recommend his teaching.
Marie Osborne, Newcastle, UK

He is a very good qualified French teacher. He takes into account the student's level and wishes, and constructs our lessons in a flexible manner. He teaches the correct use of French in an easy-to-understand manner comparing it with colloquialisms and slang. He is also very knowledgeable about the origin of words and sentences. We met online many years ago. Since then, I have been learning French with him. I was so lucky finding the right teacher
Atsuko Sue, Tokyo, Japan

Stephen's name is an indication of the kind of teacher he is. He is a legendary French teacher! He is patient, kind and engaged. I always felt like he always understood my language needs. Out of all the teachers I have tried, I feel like my French ability has grown the most with him. I also liked the way he helped me build sentences I could use on my travels and in day to day life. He uses a whiteboard and provides engaging exercises. I find these tools helpful in keeping me on track and engaged. Above all else, Stephen is a gentle genuine person, and never boring, and this makes learning French even more of a pleasure. Cyndi Nour, Sydney, Australia
