Highly energetic French teacher with experience in all age levels, devising creative lessons for students and adapting to their different learning requirements.

Methodology

For me, it is essential to work with you on concrete projects according to your day-to-day interests.

I build all my lessons from an action-based perspective: I like to integrate games into the phases of my lessons to make them fun and interactive.

I use the spiral teaching method: a subject is seen the first time in a determined context, put aside for a moment, and then studied again in another context in more detail. This method makes sense because we can cover the same material many times without it feeling repetitive.

As a hobby, I like to draw cartoons and I try to incorporate these into my lessons.

Background

Bonjour! My name is Sarah and I come from Belgium. I have a Bachelor of teaching French as a foreign language and I have started to give French lesson since 2012 during language summer camp with kids.

My first full time job was to teach French to small groups of adults and I also worked for a while in secondary schools in Melbourne. I love teaching and the challenge of finding something that will meet the needs and interests of my students.

I have a lot of experience teaching French around the world, and can bring a lot of insight to the students on the culture of ‘la Francophonie’ and the French language as I am a native French speaker myself.

I also love sport, I play cricket every Thursday night and Sunday morning in Clifton hill.

We studied together to become French teachers. We worked together a lot on creating lessons and animations during three years.

I remember Sarah as a dynamic teacher. She is persevering and innovative with a lot of imagination to captivate even the most reluctant students.

My favorite memory with Sarah in a classroom is when we started the lesson with a Disney song to introduce the theme of dreams to a class that didn't know French. Best time in a classroom ever.

Sarah knows to question herself and adapt to her audience. She pays attention to the needs of her students. She is understanding but has no issue using her authority when needed. She has many years of experience in many different contexts. She wouldn't make a great teacher, she already is.

My 10 year old daughter and I have completed 6 months of french tuition with Sarah. She is a fantastic tutor with an encouraging and positive attitude, and kept lessons interesting for my daughter. We would highly recommend Sarah.
