We all learn differently; some people work better with visuals, some by listening to audio, some prefer to learn privately whilst others thrive in a group situation. What makes a French Tutor really worthwhile is by understanding the individual and tailoring every lesson to the students learning style and interests to ensure they get the most out of every single minute and make the lesson worthwhile.
After having worked with a large variation of people of different ages, nationalities as well as for business, study or simply for pleasure, Linda is expertly experienced in working out the best way to teach her students from the very first interaction to ensure you are not only getting the most out of your lessons, but you are also having fun in the process!
