About Claire - your French Tutor

Tailor-Made Educational Services

After graduating from the University of London in 1992 with a degree in French Language and Literature, I went on to study teaching French at the University of Oxford, leaving with my post graduate degree in 1993 and I started teaching in a North London secondary school shortly afterwards.

I have taken hundreds of students through their exams and became head of A level French in 1997, working on teaching literature and the history of France during the war years. In 2000 I moved to the south of France and set up a real estate agency, recruiting 13 members of staff, both English and French, training them in the legal and business aspects of property sales.

I continued teaching French to my English-speaking staff for the 15 years that I kept the agency, selling it in 2016 to return to London, where I'm now tutoring full time. My time as a businesswoman in France has given me ability to coach you in many aspects of business French so that you use the correct terminology and understand various cultural references. 

 I take pride in teaching students who are eager to expand their minds, talents, and skills, and bring a depth of professional experience and expertise to those who strive to excel.
