Bonjour! My name is Angela Thompson and I have a 2.1 BA Honours degree in French from the University of Nottingham. I also have a PGCE in Modern Languages from Leicester University and have taught French, German and English as a second language.
I have experience in teaching all ages and to different levels. I have taught children in both primary and secondary schools and adults in evening classes. I have also worked for Le Club Français teaching children in after school clubs.
However, since 2010 I have been a private self-employed tutor of French teaching mostly children; some of whom are taught in their own home or my home and some are tutored for specific exam preparation and others are learning for fun. Some come to classes held in outside venues such as soft play centres and some are taught through Skype.
I currently do after school classes at Kidzplay in Harrogate, the Laughing Giraffe in Boroughbridge and the after school French club at Roecliffe Primary School. I do pre-school sessions at Kidzplay Harrogate and at Busy Bees Hornbeam Park Nursery, Harrogate, Penny Pot Nursery and Twinkles Nursery, Knaresborough.
I love learning languages and am trying to teach myself Spanish. I hope to instil my passion for learning languages onto my students. I also love children and am a mum to two young adults. I aim to make my classes fun whilst highly educational.
