My specialist subject is French and I also teach Drama. I am bi-lingual, as I attended the French Lycee for 13 years. Having been immersed in French culture and its educational system for so long, I have a deep understanding than most of the language and its culture. I am enthusiastic and organised, with a strong passion for the arts and languages. My acting training informs how I teach, approaching the work in a lively and imaginative way.
