Meet Nathalie who is just one of our first-class French tutors:
“I have now been teaching for nearly 30 years. I took a PGCE, secondary French with the Open University, so I know how challenging it is to study on your own.
After obtaining my PGCE in 1996, I became a freelance teacher. I taught in primary and secondary schools, 6th form and adult education.
As a native French speaker, learning languages is one of my great passions. I love to understand how languages work, how sentences are constructed. Being able to express yourself and communicate in different languages is a great asset, I get great pleasure encouraging others to achieve this.
When I have some free-time, I enjoy cooking and sewing patchwork.”
*The specification suggests that 150 hours is needed. You’ll also need time to complete assignments and prepare yourself for exams and some courses like English literature involve a lot of reading. Everyone is different so it’s impossible to say with certainty how long a course will take you, but you should expect to spend longer than 150 hours. Taken across the length of time we recommend, this equates to approximately 4 hours per week. This will increase if you choose to take it over a shorter time frame or may be less if you are retaking a subject and have covered a lot of of the course content.

NEC’s Progress Tracker will allow you to easily track your child’s progress across their subjects and gain insight to how well they are doing through access to their assignment grades and tutor feedback.
