Just a few of our French teachers in City of Edinburgh

Ms Carole P

I am a qualified modern language teacher of French, German, and Spanish, with French being my native language. I lived in Germany for 4 years. I tutor children and adults alike and I have been tutoring online since 2010. I am patient, passionate about my subject, and I am committed to focusing on the needs of each individual student. I have tutored students for GCSE German, Spanish and French and I have had good results doing so. I enjoy cooking, listening to music, playing the violin in an orchestra, travelling, hiking, swimming and learning new things. One of my students' testimonials: Our daughter switched schools and had missed all of year 7 Spanish so we contacted Carole to catch her up with the missed content. She has enjoyed her lessons over zoom and found Carole taught with clarity and patience. This has given her a much greater confidence in Spanish lessons. Carole is professional, focussed and introduced excellent learning tools, we would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs tutoring."
