I am a Native French Speaker with an academic background and 30 years’ experience of teaching French and other subjects at both secondary and tertiary levels, and giving private French tuition to children and adults at all levels, from beginners to advanced, in Australia, the UK and Canada. I am fluently bilingual in French and English.
I offer tailor made courses to both individuals and small groups (up to 5 people), structured to suit their needs and requirements. I have extensive experience of tutoring VCE students with a high success rate as 80% of my students have obtained a score of 42 and over in French at the VCE exam.
I combine a variety of methods such as written exercises, grammar, reading and oral comprehension using written texts and role play scenarios to help you obtain the best level of French as possible and give you the skills and confidence to engage in French conversation while still having fun!. I am used to adapting to the different learning styles of students and am passionate about working with you to help achieve your French language goals.

Some comments from previous students:
`Lise is a great tutor who has helped improve my French throughout my time with her. She makes me feel comfortable during my sessions and encourages me to do better. She has taught me a lot in the time I’ve been with her, and she also makes the lessons enjoyable. My French knowledge and vocabulary have definitely improved. Overall I really enjoy being tutored by Lise and would whole-heartedly recommend her!’ (Zoe, Year 10)
