I can help students prepare for their year 12 exams in all areas of the French language. I am also a VCE oral examiner. My philosophy is to immerse the student in the language, as well as consolidating their reading and writing skills.
I have over twenty years of teaching experience and approximately 15 years teaching Years 11 & 12 in both VCE and IB French. I have helped my students achieve very high scores in their final VCE and IB standard and high level examinations.
