Bilingual certified teacher tutors students at all levels in French and English in Aix-en-Provence

I am an experienced, motivated and certified teacher available for tutoring students in English and French in Aix-en-Provence. I am flexible, very patient, well organised and bilingual French/English.
During the first session we assess your strengths, weaknesses, goals and establish a study plan. Each subsequent session begins with a dialogue inspired by the student's questions or observations and then moves to more structured work on grammar, idiomatic expressions, conversation or the areas chosen from the agreed upon plan. I like to use press articles, art or literature as study aids. If the student wishes, personalized exercises can be sent by email the following day.
I am happy provide references from former students and school principals.

I teach esl (english), french. For the following level(s): primary school, early high school, year 10, year 11-12, , TAFE, , adult education, , , , , , , , beginner, intermediate, advanced.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

Perfect! Laurence is a great French language teacher. I take courses from her via Skype, which works out perfect for me, since I live in the US. My classes with Laurence are mostly conversation based, and yet she's still able to help me better my accent and correct recurring grammar mistakes. Also, I have learned so much talking with Laurence about French culture and politics. My classes with Laurence have added tremendously to my understanding of both the French language and culture.

Perfect! J'ai pris de nombreux cours d'Anglais avec Laurence, qui m'a suivie pendant tout mon premier semestre de Master 2. Malgré le programme difficile et les exigences incombant à mon niveau d'étude, Laurence a su pleinement m'accompagner dans mon apprentissage et j'ai réussi, grâce à son aide, à valider haut la main mon unité de langue vivante ! Je la recommande chaleureusement, autant pour son professionnalisme que pour sa gentillesse. Enjoy !

Merci Camille!

Perfect! Cela fait presque 4 mois que j'apprends le français avec Laurence, et je peux la recommander sans hésiter à toute personne souhaitant s'améliorer en français, indépendamment de son niveau. Sa connaissance ferme tant de l'anglais que du français a été très utile lors de l'explication / la traduction de phrases en français n'ayant pas d'équivalent en anglais malgré leur forte utilisation. Elle fait également preuve de flexibilité en me permettant de choisir la direction que je veux prendre à chaque séance, tout en restant concentrée sur les domaines où je dois faire plus d'effort. Cerise sur le gâteau, elle est extrêmement gentille et généreuse ; le thé est systématiquement servi à mon arrivée en cours !

So far I have been learning French with Laurence for about 4 months and would gladly recommend her to anyone wishing to excel in this language, no matter what level you are at. I have found her firm grasp of both English and French particularly useful in explaining/translating French phrases which have no English equivalent, despite being commonly used. She also gives me enough freedom to choose the direction I want to take each lesson in, but still remain focused on areas I need to work on. To top it all off she is extremely kind and generous - tea is even automatically provided on my arrival!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Laurence Breeden as a professor of French-language study at all levels. I was fortunate enough to study under Laurence's rubric for eighteen months and during that time my French comprehension, which was primitive at best, improved markedly. Laurence has an authoritative but relaxed manner of instruction that made our 90-minute study session enjoyable. I particularly appreciate her emphasis on grammar at a time when some language coaches downplay its importance. This view was shared by my wife, an advanced French speaker and another of Laurence's pupils.
