Chloe Lusandu
**TSH** I work as a TSH due to my years of experience as a teacher and my ability to empathise with students of all ages, including primary school students. My strength lies in the Sciences to GCSE level; especially Biology which I can teach to A Level. I can make the student feel at ease and motivate them to learn more. I break down content which enables students to feel in control of their learning and responsible for it. I adapt to students needs and manipulate my teaching style to empower and engage the student. This makes the sessions fun and knowledgeable. Hi everyone! My name is Chloé Lusandu. I was born in Paris France and grew up on London UK. I speak French and English fluently. I Graduated with Honours in Biomedical Science in 2018. Since then, I have been teaching Advanced Biology in English to students who are learning English as a second language. It been a great experience learning from students while they learn from me! In my free time I enjoy reading, playing sports, learning new languages. I have recently been starting to learn Arabic, its quiet fun, but challenging pronouncing the letters. I also really love animals, some of my free time is spent entertaining my cat. I also play the piano (not very well :D), but it is something I learnt by myself and practiced in high school. The sports I have been enjoying lately are solo sports like roller skating, going to the gym in the mornings, swimming. However, I also like playing team sports. I was on a few sport teams when I was younger, like rounders and netball. I also spend a lot of my time catching up with family and friends, either on the phone/video call or watching something through Netflix party. Tutoring wise I am confident that I can support your learning in the sciences till GCSE at any age group. Subjects I specialize in till A Levels would be Biology. Whatever support you would require, whether that be content reviewing, help with your homework, or prepping for assignments/exams, or just improving your confidence in a subject I am here to support you!

Paul Allen
Hi, I’m Paul. I mostlytutor Maths and Science as well as Computer Science and English as a Foreign Language, which I trained in at Columbia Teachers’ College, USA. Originally I studied for a BA in Natural Sciences. I have been a classroom teacher and tutor for over 15years, in the UK as well as South Korea, Japan and China, and more recently have developed Science courses for a large online learning platform. My tutorials are often centered around structured practice of specific topic areas, with an approach geared toward getting students to speak freely about topics in their own voices. I am happy to tailor sessions with either general revision, exam preparation or new learning and discovery in mind. In my free time, I enjoy tennis, movies and triathlons. Hope to see you soon!

About me: Hi there! I'm Luke and I am a tutor of French, English Literature and Language up to A-level. I have been tutoring online since May 2021, and I have lots of experience helping students to reach their goals and realise their true potential. I'm a student at University of Glasgow and I'm incredibly enthusiastic about learning, travelling and getting to know people of all backgrounds. I believe in tailoring tutoring sessions to students' specific needs, and I also believe that it is impossible to learn effectively if you aren't enjoying the process of learning itself. I am proud to offer a casual and supportive environment where students can ask questions, reflect and be curious whilst also using science-backed learning strategies. I am especially experienced with tutoring AQA GCSE English Literature and Language, but have experience with tutoring all ages from KS1 up to KS5 and have an incredibly flexible approach to my teaching. Students are welcome to bring their own work to our sessions, or I can provide resources that I feel will help students to reach their goals.

Parent Approved French Tutoring | GoStudent

If your child is taking French lessons it opens up a world of opportunities for them later. But just like not every child is naturally gifted at science or physical education, many students find it hard to prepare and pass their French exam. What they need is a much-needed confidence boost and tailored classes from a French tutor. Let’s look at how French tutoring can help and make learning French more enjoyable.

Why it’s important to excel at French exams

Learning any foreign language is important on so many levels. Here are some of the top reasons your child should focus on their French lessons even if they don’t appreciate it now or necessary enjoy them at this stage.

Studying a French course sharpens the mind

It’s no secret that learning a second (or third, or fourth!) language is brain food. Learning French or any foreign language is not easy and takes perseverance and considerable brain power. This has been linked to improved memory, cognitive skills, and even lowers the risk of developing dementia later in life.

These are all pretty convincing arguments already. French lessons do more than keep the brain active though; they are the gateway to more interesting endeavours too such as travelling or working abroad.

Even primary school French makes travelling easier

You don’t have to be fluent to reap the benefits of the French language. Of course, there are huge advantages in working towards being fluent because it would allow your child to have conversations with native speakers.

French native speakers are all over the world too and even having primary school French will be such a benefit for your child if they meet someone who speaks French or they travel to a country where French is the official language. That’s because your child will be able to read menus and timetables while getting around, plus order things and ask questions in the mother tongue. This is always appreciated by locals the world over.

As one of the fastest-growing languages in the world, French is the official language,or one of, in the following countries:

  • France

  • Chad

  • Switzerland

  • Seychelles

  • Belgium

  • Luxembourg

  • Vanuatu

  • Benin

  • Burkina Faso

  • Burundi

  • Canada

  • Cameroon

  • Equatorial Guinea

  • Guinea

  • Haiti

  • Madagascar

  • Monaco

  • Togo

  • Senegal

  • Rwanda

  • Mali

  • Djibouti

  • Niger

  • Côte d'Ivoire

  • Comoros

  • Central African Republic

  • Democratic Republic of the Congo

  • Republic of the Congo

As you can see, your kid won’t be limited to France to practise their French and decide whether something is a “oui” or “non” when travelling or on holidays. The pleasure people get from communicating abroad is one of the top reasons we study languages.

If your kid is not enjoying their French lessons then help them see the bigger picture and explain they may want to visit any or all of these places one day and what a great help primary school French or advanced French lessons will be.

A French course helps with employment prospects

If your kid does well in their primary school French course and continues French lessons into GCSE and A-Levels, they will have more job opportunities. There are a plethora of bilingual jobs on the market these days and many state English and French or having English and any other language as being beneficial or essential.

Whether your kid dreams of working for the United Nations in Geneva or doing a ski season in Quebec (Canada) or somewhere in France, they can do it. It may be that they have no inkling to travel but land up getting a position at a French multinational in the UK. In a global world, doing well at French exams pays off.

How to do well in a French exam

No matter what level your child is at in their French lessons they are going to face four French exams to test their skills in:

  • Reading

  • Writing

  • Listening

  • Speaking

Many students find reading is the easiest. That’s because there are many similar words that French and English share. On paper, these are easy to spot. These can be trickier to identify when listening because of the difference in pronunciation. Trying to remember them to write them down or speak them is even harder.

Your kid is going to need to practise all of these skills ahead of their French exams. Let’s look at how best to go about this.

Top tips for French revision

Repetition, repetition, repetition is the name of the game here. As fast as a word seems to sink in it can just as quickly slip away. Spaced repetition is critical for French revision. Your kid needs to keep up with their classes and practise regularly outside of French lessons so that the words, conjugation, meanings, and accent become natural and are ingrained in their long-term memory.

This is hugely important if they’re going to continue with a French course in the future. They should also find material to practise outside of their regular French course book. This will make it more interesting and relevant for them. Here are some great ideas to get started:

  • Find and listen to podcasts in French where they understand most of what’s being said

  • Read French material in topics they’re interested in that they see in magazines, online, books, or anything they find that they want to understand

  • Meet with other students to practise speaking French together

  • Write in French wherever it’s practical on a daily level (e.g. private journal, writing down tasks or lists)

Of course, self-esteem is one of the biggest factors when it comes to acing the French exams, particularly the speaking aspect. Getting professional French tutoring will help your child advance in all of the components of their French lessons.

Why your child needs French tutoring

Whether your child is taking primary school French lessons, GCSEs, A-Levels or studying a French course at a further education facility, having a French tutor will help them no end.

One of the biggest difficulties with learning a language as opposed to other subjects is the heavy reliance on the teacher. Self-learning is more accessible these days for learning French with apps but it doesn’t replace having a conversation with someone in French or having a teacher correct an email you need to write in French etc.

Private French tuition is the best way to do well in a French exam and advance in the language, making genuine progress that your kid will be able to apply in a real-life situation. Here are the biggest benefits of having a French tutor.

One-on-one French lessons are tailored

Being in a large classroom scenario doesn’t allow a teacher to give every child the individualised attention they need to work on problem areas. By giving your child a private French tutor to work with, you are providing them with additional help and practice that is tailored to their strengths and weaknesses.

Traditional French lessons at schools and colleges involve the teacher speaking for much of the time, reading and doing exercises, and little practice speaking. Like we mentioned before, your kid will be able to practise reading French in their own time and their French tutor can provide support if needed as well as recommended reading material.

At GoStudent, our French tutoring service is based on creating a unique learning plan for each student. Your kid’s French tutor will assess their level and identify their weaker areas and make the ideal plan accordingly.

Whether your child is an auditory or visual learner, they will find their online French Tutoring engaging with us. Our French tutors make the most of the interactive digital whiteboard and introduce games and fun topics to each session so that your kid can’t wait for future French lessons!

Expertise in French exam preparation

We offer French tutoring at all levels and no matter what your child’s reasons are, our French tutors will work to meet your kid’s specific goals; do they want to just pass their French exam, or excel at the French exam because they want to continue taking French lessons and become proficient in it?

Our French tutors will improve your kid’s French exam grades. They will do this by:

  • Increasing their confidence at succeeding at their French course

  • Providing additional French revision

  • Giving advice on how to study for the different components of the French exams

  • Helping to develop their French exam technique

Improve French language skills

If your kid is going through the effort of taking French lessons you should make the most of it. Even if they don’t believe they will take it any further after their French exams, having a solid base of French language skills is useful in so many ways.

Just being able to say they have primary school French is vastly better than no foreign language and gives them an appreciation for the language and the culture thanks to the French lessons. They don’t have to commit to it for life if it’s not for them!

However, if they do want to continue with French lessons, then primary school French will lay the foundations for GCSE French exams, which in turn leads to A-Levels and so on. It’s important to keep up at every stage because falling behind in French lessons makes it very challenging to catch up.

When you’re ready to hire a French tutoring service for your kid (even if that’s now) let us help you find the right French tutor that suits them. We guarantee that your child will come leaps and bounds in their French lessons and get better grades in their French exams than they could ever have imagined.

You will be amazed at the progress your kid makes thanks to French tuition. Remember, it’s not just about teaching the French course content. It’s about support, boosting self-esteem, and tailoring French lessons to suit your child so they are enthusiastic and learn more as a result.
