10 GREAT REASONS TO CHOOSE FANTASTIQUE FRENCH TUITION

Having built up my business from scratch, my client base has expanded to the point where I am now teaching French (a job I love) full-time. So you're guaranteed a professional, specialist service.

I love teaching, but unlike some other tutors, I'm not a "Jack-of-all-trades" offering to teach you any one of a range of different, unrelated subjects.

I teach French, and nothing else, so I can concentrate all my resources on giving you the most productive and enjoyable learning experience possible.

I studied French to degree level, and have studied, worked and travelled extensively in France - a country I know very well and which I love returning to whenever I can.

I am equally happy teaching French online or face-to-face. My online tutoring is done via Skype and Microsoft Word documents and sound files in OneDrive. How does it work?

Of the four fundamental language skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening), I place a particular emphasis on my students developing their speaking and listening skills.

Because having successful, real-life conversations with native speakers is the greatest reward for learning any language.

Having studied French to degree level (including studying the finer points of French criminal law during my year abroad), I can help you with everything: from ordering a snack in a café to when you should -and should not- use the imperfect subjunctive.

Some tutors make you travel to their place for lessons. Not me - if you'd like lessons in the comfort of your own home, I'm more than happy to travel anywhere within a 20 mile radius of Ringwood, Hampshire.

And it may even be free for you - more details here.

I have an Enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) certificate dated 30 January 2017.

Some websites charge you to contact tutors. Others charge an agency fee for every lesson you take.

Not here -you can contact me as often as you like for free, and every penny you spend goes exactly where it should - on improving your French.

If you'd like more information about my lessons before deciding to proceed, I am more than happy to provide a 100% "no obligation" 30-minute chat or trial lesson by phone, Skype or in person.

Tim is an excellent tutor. He is always prepared for lessons and he makes learning a new language enjoyable. He is extremely easy to get along with and he explains difficult concepts in a clear and concise manner. I would highly recommend his service to anyone thinking of learning French or improving their French.
