French Tutoring at with Wentworth Tutors

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 Tutors

French tutoring at Wentworth 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 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. ...
