Our French Tutors

We have tutors who have taught all ages, at all levels, and to all abilities. That means that they have the experience to focus on your particular learning style and needs. Our tutors have all studied their relevant language(s) at university; most in Oxford, Cambridge or one of the Ivy League Colleges. Some have done or are doing doctorates.

French Tutoring at Wentworth Education

French tutoring at Wentworth Education takes many forms. This can vary from sessions focussed principally on grammar: consolidating areas covered at school, teaching new tenses and practising newly acquired skills in writing and conversation; to work on cultural topics such as current affairs, literature and film.

French Exam Preparation

Exams for Modern Languages are designed to test four core skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. Our tutors are here to provide tailored support in each of these areas. They will work with you on your exam technique, as well as ensuring your knowledge of grammar and relevant vocabulary is up to scratch.

For revision-focused tutorials, we recommend regular sessions that concentrate on refining exam technique and resolving specific problem-areas. By reviewing homework, class assessments and mock exam papers together, we identify the particular challenges faced by the student, and ensure that these issues are resolved in plenty of time for the exam.

Beyond examinations, it is important to recognise that, perhaps more than any other subject, language-learning is a skill that extends far beyond assessment. As such, our tutors consistently place emphasis on the application of acquired language skills in real-life scenarios.

I graduated last year with a 1st in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. My experience as a tutor extends across different levels and subjects, from teaching English as a foreign language to 11+ exams, and university entrance preparation. Throughout the years, I have worked with students on a wide range of curriculums to hone their skills and expand not only their knowledge, but also their interest and love for the subject. Having won a bursary to attend Wellington College in 2011, I studied the IB, and was one of the very few students in the world to achieve a maximum of 45 points. Some of the distinctions I was awarded for my academic performances include the Gavin Ewart Poetry Prize, the Verrall English Prize, the Music Essay Prize, and the Lady Emma Talbot Special Prize. I went on to earn a place at Oxford University where I read BA Honours in English Language and Literature. Following my Distinction in Prelims, I was awarded the Casberd Scholarship for outstanding results. ...
I graduated in 2014 with a Double First in Modern and Medieval Languages from Trinity College, Cambridge, where I specialised in French and Spanish. Following my B.A., I received a full academic scholarship to undertake a MPhil in Management at Judge Business School, Cambridge, where I studied Finance and completed a consulting project with Lloyds Banking Group. In 2016, I obtained a M.A. in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, with a particular focus on French eighteenth-century works. I have variously worked in the worlds of art, fashion and music, from interning with Picasso's granddaughter in Paris, to working at Tom Ford and Sotheby's in London. I also helped to raise £10 million to build a new theatre for charity organisation Grange Park Opera. As a tutor, I specialise in French and Spanish language and literature, essay-writing skills, CV and personal statement advice. ...
I have been a tutor since I began my undergraduate degree at Oxford in 2013. I graduated with the highest first class degree in English Language and Literature at my college, Christ Church. At Christ Church I was also an Academic Scholar and holder of a Gibbs Prize for achieving a Distinction in Preliminary Examinations and coming 10th in a year of 240 students. In 2016, I started a Masters degree in English Language and Literature at University College London, where I was awarded the Shakespeare and Rhetoric Prize by Professor Brian Vickers.

Throughout my time at Oxford and UCL, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions, including undergraduate and postgraduate study. Although my main subject is English, I have a strong interest in other languages and arts. Having grown up in Paris with dual English/Italian nationality, I am a native speaker of English, Italian and French, and can speak conversational Spanish. My interest and ability in History of Art has lead me to teaching the subject for the General Paper of the Eton Oppidan Scholarship. I have a constant desire to learn, something which I feel is greatly helped by tutoring, and this is a passion I seek to instil in all my tutees. ...
I am a friendly, encouraging teacher with over a decade's experience, particularly with students aged 11-13. Since graduating from Cambridge 13 years ago I have taught students of all sorts of abilities and ages (5-58) anywhere from Notting Hill to Nairobi. My curiosity about the world has drawn me to journalism as well as teaching. I worked at the Telegraph for two years and now I write about arts and culture for The Economist’s 1843, The Spectator and Apollo magazines. I am also the co-author of 'What on Earth is Going On? A Crash Course in Current Affairs' (HarperCollins, 2009 - Sunday Times 'Stocking Filler of the Year'). Both my teaching and writing are informed by a desire to understand the world, and to help others do so too. ...
I recently studied Modern Languages & Management at undergraduate level at Cambridge, won the Eton College Spanish prize, earned top grades at GCSE, AS level & A Level and was awarded a Scholarship in Modern Languages in my 1st year at Cambridge. I have received a lot of tutoring along the way so am familiar with what works and what doesn't. From my experience, the best tutors make grammar, literary analysis & learning simple but also highly engaging. I enjoy teaching at all levels from GCSE to University Admissions and find it very satisfying to see my tutees progress and enjoy the sessions. I'm sociable, play a lot of sport in my free time and love to travel. Please do get in contact if you have any questions! ...
I am a very experienced teacher of languages and have taught students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. I love being part of the process of enabling students to achieve their potential and have spent many years working in classrooms, one to one tutoring as well as designing the new qualifications for A level and GCSE for one of the exam boards. This has given me an excellent understanding of their requirements as well as how to prepare for success in the new qualifications. ...
Having recently graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge, with first-class honours in Modern and Medieval Languages, I am excited to share my enthusiasm for language, literature and culture with others. Throughout my education I have benefitted from outstanding teaching, delivered in a wide range of styles but united by a love of the subject matter and the creativity required to make a given language relevant to the world of the pupil. I have often told my friends, when they insist that they "can't do languages", that anyone can learn a language if they find the method that suits them. I work with each of my tutees to find the most efficient and enjoyable language-learning techniques for them as an individual, and to inspire them to strengthen their relationship with the language independently.

I passionately believe not only that learning languages improves us as individuals members of society by giving us direct access to treasures of world culture, broadening our cultural horizons and inviting us to step into others' shoes, but also that learning a language can and should be easy, rewarding and fun. In an age of advanced language-learning software, a personal tutor is indispensable in ascertaining and maintaining the best approach for each learner. ...
I am a qualified teacher of German and French at an independent school in Hampstead. I teach four days a week, but on weekends and Mondays I am free to tutor. I can work with students of all ages and abilities, from university students to younger children. I also have experience and qualifications to teach English as a foreign language to adults, and have an educational background in chemistry. ...
I was brought up in Paris and moved to London to study at Imperial College, where I obtained a Bachelor’s and Master's degree in Theoretical Physics with High First Class honours. My research focused on the way in which alternative logic systems can help us bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and relativity. I was awarded Associateship of the Royal College of Science.

Although I am a science specialist, I also have a strong background in English and Verbal Reasoning. I sat the GRE in 2016 for entrance to US Grad School and got exceptionally good grades (Verbal Reasoning - 99th percentile, Analytical Writing - 93rd percentile).

Since 2011, I have offered private tuition for all major examination boards as well as working for the Imperial College summer schools. ...
I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2015, where I studied French and Italian. Since then, I have completed the Graduate Diploma in Law with Distinction and I am currently studying for the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Moorgate. I have been working as a tutor for four years, with a particular focus on language tuition, Oxbridge applications and tutoring for the 11+. For me, tutoring is an incredibly rewarding experience. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to watch my tutees make progress not only in terms of their academic ability but also in developing self-confidence and a love for learning overall. ...
