Our children have been working with Eleanor for over a year now. She is a great teacher focusing on our individual strengths and weakness. They love and are always looking forward to having lesson with her. They also find her teaching style very flexible (as my children have different abilities and understanding). As a result of having weekly interactions with Eleanor their French abilities have dramatically improved. 6 stars for a marvellous teacher!!!

Eleonore is an absolutely fabulous teacher and I am so glad I found her! After 4 months of classes, she managed to uplift my French skills from very basic to a good B1-B2 level. I always feel very comfortable with her and keen to speak even though my vocabulary is still not very rich. She is excellent at making classes very comprehensive through alternating grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, oral, audio and other activities and making you develop all the necessary skills evenly. She is one of those exceptional professionals and enthusiasts that are so rare these days, and I always look forward to the next class. Eleonore makes studying a truly exciting and engaging journey, not to mention its effectiveness.

Eleonore offers a wide variety of skills and knowledge for teaching French, and at the same time the capacity to explore various domains with complex detail. For example, while she is perfectly capable of offering instruction in grammar, for some time we have been concentrating on French literature and related TV and internet broadcasts. Why do I easily understand some speakers, or some programming, or certain writing, but others give me trouble? The answer is not attributable to just local accents or slang, but also whether the writing is intended to be mundane or more evocative of literary French. This makes the language so much more fascinating. I highly recommend Eleonore.

About me

I'm a Native French speaker, qualified FFL (French as a Foreign Language) Teacher with more than 10 years of Teaching experience behind me. I'm working full-time as a very happy Freelance Teacher in Marseille (France), face-to-face and online. One-to-one teaching is my passion, I've lost count of the number of amazing and fascinating people I've met from all over the world through teaching over the years! As a Teacher, I make a point in adapting my teaching to the students needs and personality. I believe a mature, responsible, and eclectic teaching approach, as well as a good sense of humour, is crucial for a successful learning environment.

I have a MASTER degree in HISTORY OF ART and Archeology and a Bachelor in FRENCH LITERATURE from LA SORBONNE University (Paris) and Poitiers University. I worked many years in museums (chateau de Versailles) and as a Teaching assistant in History of Art at Poitiers University (France). In 2010, I moved to the UK and decided teaching French full-time. I was a French Teaching Assistant in schools and started studying FFL teaching methods. In Cambridge (UK), where I founded 'the French lesson", I taught French to children as young as 2 years old, postgraduates students from Colleges of the University of Cambridge (Trinity College, King's College, Gonville and Caius College...) and professionals, beginners to expert levels.


- Advanced and Expert levels. I have good experience and I love teaching advanced level students. I can help you break the 'language wall' to get to a higher level. My knowledge and passion for grammar and linguistics will help you improve your skills and hopefully answer the tricky questions sometimes raised by French grammar.

You will learn the fundamental of spoken French, Vocabulary and Pronunciation to be able to communicate in French as quickly as possible, as well as the essentials of grammar to learn with strong basis and build solid language skills.
