With regards to my degree, I received a first-class classification as well as a distinction in spoken French. Prior to university, I gained As and A*s at A-level and GCSE levels, studying and sitting exams for OCR, AQA and Cambridge syllabuses. I also have received child-safeguarding training during my time teaching on my year abroad in France. I am also fully DBS-checked (certificate issued in 2022).

About me

Hello! My name is Helena and I am a recent graduate from the University of St Andrews where I studied French, German and Art History. I have been tutoring and teaching for three years in the UK and the France. Despite being relatively new to the site, I have been tutoring both French and German in person and online on other platforms. For these tutorials, I have received a full student satisfaction, recently helping a student improve from a 4 to an 8 in their GCSE French exam. Such sessions have made me very familiar with and confident to teach current GCSE and A-level syllabuses - both of which I studied myself. Additionally, I was a language assistant in France through the British Council from 2019-2020 where I taught English to classes of French collège students. This experience has given me a thorough understanding of the mechanisms of language learning and of how to create a friendly and productive learning environment. I aim to create tailored and organised lessons, which are fun and engaging, while always being centred around learning objectives. I’m keen to listen to and incorporate feedback from students and parents, and am more than happy to work to varying schedules and commitments. In my free time, I am a keen baker. If I'm not tutoring or studying, I'll be in the kitchen trying (not always successfully) to recreate some of my favourite French pâtisseries! I also love visiting museums and galleries all around the world, and I make sure to integrate these two great passions into my lessons, because who doesn't like cake and pictures?! Looking forward to hearing from you and getting started! :)
