English Tuition

Faye has been working with my, lacking in confidence, somewhat reluctant year 8 son since about September 2020. Despite most of the lessons being on line I have visibly seen his confidence grow as well as his written work improving. The on line tools Faye uses work really well and don’t detract from the learning. Faye seems able to really engage with him and has got him really interested in reading again. It is lovely to see him with a book in his hand rather than his phone! Couldn’t recommended Faye enough.

Excellent service highly recommended. Faye is very professional and we are so glad we found her. Can’t thank Faye enough for what she has done for our son.

Faye is both efficient and effective when it comes to our lessons. She provides useful advice and help which has amplified my confidence to approach difficult tasks that I am currently facing in my A-Levels. She easily adapts to any reading material I am working on in school and always remains prepared for our lessons.

French tuition

Adult lessons

Faye has been tutoring me for almost a year now. I honestly can say that my French has improved dramatically over this period of time due to her support. She is patient, organised, a great listener, and brings energy and excitement to our lessons. We recently moved our lessons online due to the COVID crisis; we now do them on Zoom. At first I was apprehensive about this, as I thought having lessons online would affect the quality. However, I am pleased to say our lessons have been more efficient and better than ever. I would highly recommend Faye to anyone who is looking to improve or learn French.

I have been learning with Faye now since January 2020, as learning French is something I have always wanted to get into. Although sometimes I struggle […] Faye is always so patient with me. My lessons with Faye are something I really look forward to each week, as she brings such a calming atmosphere to the room, even via Zoom! I really appreciate how Faye is willing to tailor her lessons to my interests rather than utilising her general lesson materials. In my eyes, this time and dedication goes above and beyond the hour I pay for each week. Faye is also always sending useful documents and suggesting TV shows for me to read/watch, which she absolutely doesn’t have to do! Faye is honestly such a star, I couldn’t say a bad word about her or my lessons.

Faye is always well prepared and structured for my lesson. She knows what my limits are and what my lesson needs in order for my French to improve. Her passion for the French language is infectious and I look forward to each lesson, which is varied and enjoyable.

Faye is a great teacher who is helping me to improve my French language skills. Her lessons are varied, interesting and thoughtful in design and approach. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone interested in learning French.

school support

We are very pleased with Faye’s French lessons with our 14-year-old daughter. Faye listened to our request and has tailored the lessons to help achieve what we were after. Our daughter has very quickly gained more confidence in the subject and is talking positively about her upcoming French GCSE. Faye is extremely polite, professional, engaging and prompt, always arriving on time for each lesson. She has a structured approach to the lessons, which includes different methods of learning together with helpful handout materials. She also sets some homework to be ready for the next lessons which is great as that provides some continuity between lessons week to week. Faye is more than happy to talk to us as parents at the end of each lessons and is never in a rush to leave when the lesson is over. In this time, she is happy to discuss matters arising out of that day’s lesson and to plan for the next. Finally, we would like to say we would not hesitate in recommending Faye to others as we are very happy with her lessons, politeness and general approach to learning.

children’s lessons

I’d highly recommend Faye. I booked lessons initially as something to keep my kids’ minds busy during lockdown but I intend to keep it going. Faye has a lovely manner with children to inspire them to learn, making it fun and interactive. Remote lessons have not been an issue at all with the easy to use technology Faye has put in place. Faye adapts the lessons well for kids of different ages and ability. She is great at making the class very inclusive so all feel comfortable participating in the group work sessions. We couldn’t make one lesson and Faye has taken the time to provide a recording and an activity so they can catch up.
Faye’s passion for French comes out in the lessons and her teaching methods and manner really makes her shine. If you’re thinking of booking lessons, don’t hesitate!

– Nina Peters, Children’s French Course

My son is loving his French lessons, Faye is lovely and he enjoys all the different activities and techniques she uses that help him learn. She is working to his pace and he really looks forward to each lesson.
