ABOUT ME

Bonjour!

Je m'appelle Tim Robins. J'ai 39 ans, et j'habite près de Bournemouth dans le Sud de l'Angleterre...

My love of languages, and French in particular, started at school and continued through to university, where I studied Law and French. I spent the third year of my degree studying French law at the University of Nantes in western France.

After graduating, I trained and then practised as a solicitor for a number of years before changing direction in April 2013 and starting to tutor French. There are two main reasons why I enjoy teaching:

  • It's rewarding. I really like to see my students grow in confidence and enjoyment as their French language skills improve - when they string a sentence together for the first time, for example, or finally "get" how the subjunctive works.
  • It's interesting. Every one of my clients is different and has their own reason for learning French. I find this variety very refreshing and it makes teaching each of my students a unique and enjoyable experience.

Since setting up a few years ago, my French tuition business has grown to the point where it is now a full-time (6 days a week) job. My passion for languages has become my livelihood!

In my spare time, my main passions are cycling (especially around France), and running. I am a qualified Volunteer Run Leader and most Saturday mornings can be seen hauling my protesting body around the 5k Park Run at Moors Valley Country Park.

À bientôt!
