My name is Carole. I am a native French teacher from Normandy. I studied for my degree in English, Spanish and IT in Le Havre before spending a year as a French language assistant in the South of England. I then decided to stay in the UK and did teacher training at the University of Southampton. I remained in the South of England for 8 years, teaching IT and languages. Then I carried on with my little tour of Europe by first spending 2 years in lovely Baden (Switzerland) where I taught for a language school. I spent the next 4 years north of Frankfurt where the French community is very strong. I am currently in the North West of England, where I get to experience absolutely stunning landscapes.
When I am not busy teaching or creating language learning videos, I might be found playing the violin, cooking, or watching a history program.
I hope you enjoy my lessons and have as much fun learning with me as I have teaching!

“Thanks for another superb lesson on Zoom. I’m just starting to copy the whole of the lesson, which you kindly send by email, out in my exercise book, which in effect gives me two lessons in one. I was slightly apprehensive about having my lessons on Zoom due to Covid 19, but it’s not the case. It’s easy & very constructive.” – Michael Concannon
“Just to let you know Peter has had his A-level results today. I am really pleased to say that he got an A for his French A-level!” – Helen Kendall (Peter’s Mum)
“French was a subject I really struggled with at school. Thanks to your teaching methods I have made great progress and feel a lot more confident when I have to speak French on holidays.” – Michelle Turner (adult learner)
“In my opinion, Carole has helped me so much, my grades have improved dramatically. I am now a lot more confident in my French lessons at school” – Jessica Whitehead (GCSE student)
“I think lessons on Skype are great. Firstly, it is thanks to Skype that I have the opportunity to have tutoring with you at all, as we live in different cities. Secondly, I think that using Skype is a very efficient and convenient way of tutoring. The ‘share screen’ function allows you to see my work at the same time as me so you can check and critique everything as we go along. Using the computer also allows us to access online resources during the lesson- such as listening exercises and online newspapers ect. As a bonus, you have also taught me lots of ICT tips and tricks.” – Charlotte Stella, French student on Skype
