I'm looking for students with a good grasps of the basics who want to achieve fluency (B2 or over in TEFAQ / TCFQ )
Besides exam practice, I like to talk about travels, food, films, gardening, the weather and all the little things in between.
If you are still a beginner, it's probably too early to start with me. I would advice reading my book, The No Nonsense French Guide.
Me as a Teacher
I didn't train to be a teacher - my background is in Laws and Arts - but I've been coaching French learners since 2011.
Author of the The No Nonsense French Guide, L'Égypte Antique au féminin/Did you know about Female Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt? and Cool! Les rayons X / X-Rays are Cool
My lessons & teaching style
I do informal lessons. We talk and I correct on the spot (verbally and I type the corrections for further references). I probably won't correct everything as this can become annoying, I tend to focus on the bigger issues. I may suggest reading material & exercises after the lesson. For TEFAQ practices, I have mock ups tests to practice oral expression. For TCFQ, I have a list of questions. I may use this list of questions even if you don't plan to pass the test as they are a good way to make people talk on a large range of subject.
Comme toujours j'apprends beaucoup avec Caroline comme, par exemple, sur le concours de l'Eurovision pendant les dernières semaines ce qui était très divertissant. Nous parlons d'un très grand variété de sujets qui m'aident tellement à améliorer mes compétences orales.

I look forward to every lesson with Caroline, who must be the most interesting conversationalist in any language. I appreciate her patient help as I work to improve my skills, and how she makes the journey fun and entertaining!

Caroline is good. She is friendly and conversational. So you feel free to express yourself in French. Also she won’t interrupt the conversation unless you need help and she keeps asking you questions which prompts you to talk more.
