I am Amelie, a professional French native teacher, with a methodology method that has proved its worth many times. Not only my method and my academic background will help you thrive in your French learning journey, but my passion and enthusiasm for my language will motivate you to pursue your efforts along the way.
I have been living in the UK for the past seven years which gave me a robust understanding of both French and British cultures and educational systems.
Since I have started this fantastic tutoring journey, I have taught French to students with a great variety of backgrounds – Native speakers preparing for their French baccalaureate (French A-levels), British teenagers preparing for their GCSE, children who wanted to learn a new language, expat adults living in France, English-speaking adults who wanted to improve their resume. My "raison d'être" is to support my students and help them to achieve their goals, with confidence and enthusiasm.
Alors… Do you want to prepare for your French exam? Or a job interview? Are you planning a trip to a French-speaking country? Do you need to learn specialized French for work? Do you want to learn a new language because it makes you happy? Do you need more conversational time to gain confidence? Book your first lesson with me today! French has never been so easy.
A bientot !
Whether you want to progress quickly, learn specialized French for work, pass your French exams (all levels) or enroll your child in a fun and excellent French course, I am the teacher you need!
Each individual deserves to be treated as such, that is why my teaching method is tailor-made as per your needs. My methodology is personalized to your level, your requirements, and your very own personality. This is how I have always managed to get excellent results with my students.
My aim is to make you gain confidence while improving your knowledge. I will always do my best to find a perfect balance between theory and its application in a creative and stimulating way to not only keep you engaged but also make you get excellent results.
I plan your lessons based on your needs and around your existing (or non-existing) knowledge of French to take you to the next level.
The courses you will attend are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1 to C2) to provide a guideline for your learning and will revolve around four major axes: 1) reading 2) speaking 3) writing 4) listening.
I am providing the learning materials and I will give you homework to learn and practice in-between lessons. All these resources and even more would be accessible in your own online personal space where we can communicate until your next lesson if you need to.

Practised some French listening questions
Great first session
Focused on speaking and writing.
Helpful as always
Amelie has been helping my daughter catch up with her French GCSE course, after having missed a lot of classes during lockdowns. Amelie has a very clear understanding the of the syllabus, focuses on my daughters learning objectives, and provides lots of really useful info to review and work on between classes. We are already seeing a big improvement in her marks and her confidence with regard to French. Additionally, Amelie is always really friendly, flexible and responsive when it comes to scheduling, and makes the lessons both fun and useful.
Amelie is a very proactive tutor trying to base her classes around oneself rather than one style of teaching. This results in a very indivdual and helpful approach. I am happy to have her help me with my strugles in french.
My son Deniz finds classes with Amelie always fun, and also he learns a lot! I am very happy with his progress. We would highly recommend her.
'Amelie has been privately tutoring me for nearly a couple of months now. She left a great impression on the very first day and I enjoy learning with her. She’s an excellent teacher who is also very kind and sociable. Her lessons are fun and help me a lot, I'm lucky to have her as a tutor.' - Isobel, an American expat who went from an A1 level to a C1 in a couple of months thanks to her hard work and dedication! 'Amelie is a fantastic tutor. Very clear and understanding! Would strongly suggest learning with her!' - Jack, an adult learner who wanted to gain confidence and expand his professional vocabulary. 'Amelie is a wonderful teacher to my 13-year-old daughter. She often checks in with me separately to give me an update. My daughter learns new words every week, and his accent is improving too. My daughter says "you can talk to her about lots of different subjects. She is fun to talk to and thinks of engaging activities. We have good conversations in French. She has taught me to speak more fluently on relatable topics like weather and transportation. I look forward to the classes and I have fun during the sessions. I would recommend her." ‘Jacqueline, mother to Astrid, GCSE French student '
