Stéphanie Paillasson French Tuition                              



Here is what the students think of us!

" Forget those stuffy French classes from school! Stephanie makes learning French fun, but make no mistake, you're learning all the time. The mix of course-work, conversation and games make my lessons a highlight of the week. "
Ash - Kingston-Upon-Thames


" I have learnt more after 3 months tuition with Stephanie than I did after 5 years at school! Stephanie makes every lesson interesting, fun and informative. Using a wide range of teaching techniques to make it enjoyable to learn, I look forward to each and every lesson. Also, as the lessons are tailor made to suit each person, you are able to quickly improve on the aspects of French most important to you... So thank you Stephanie! "
Charlotte - Kew

I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking to kick-start their French. As a beginner, I have started French lessons before with other teachers only to quickly loose interest and stop. With Stephanie this is not the case. After 2 months of intensive lessons my progress has been rapid and real. Stephanie's teaching method is engaging and she uses topics and hobbies that interest you to make lessons more fun and rewarding. Not only has my knowledge of French language improved, but I've also received a valuable crash-course in French culture and history. While textbook based, Stephanie has the confidence and experience to use other methods such as games and questionnaires when she feels it more productive than blindly following the textbook. Stephanie strikes a balance between encouraging and pushing me and uses minimal English during our lesson time. She has provided me with a great foundation where I now feel my future progress rests as much with me and in the work I am prepared to do outside the classroom - a point to which I had aspired and thought would take much, much longer to reach. Thank you Stephanie. "   Rob - Richmond

" I have been having French lessons with for several years now, and I have found my lessons extremely professional and enjoyable. My teacher is experienced, charming and knows her stuff! As an intermediate-level student, she ( quite rightly) puts me through my paces, as she knows I'm lazy with both my speaking and my grammar. Her input has been invaluable in improving my French, which is important to me as my boyfriend is French. Whilst as a couple we only speak English together, I speak to his family and friends on a regular basis. I am really enjoying my lessons and would highly recommend Merci! "   Alex - Central London

" My son Ali was struggling a bit at school with his A-level French so he started having a French lesson at home with Claire once a week. She has been fantastic - she has based the lessons on his school syllabus and this has done a lot for Ali's confidence in French. His French conversation and written work have both improved since he started the lessons and he has really enjoyed the lessons. Claire is lovely and friendly and never minded when we had to change the lesson times at the last minute. I would thoroughly recommend Claire to anyone needing some extra help with French tuition. "   Sally – Richmond

" What I like about Stephanie's French Lessons: Together we structured the lessons in blocks of 1.5 hrs, which was a good choice. Meeting twice a week, I made good progress. My emphasis is on "conversation", so the lessons were accordingly structured. For the "methode" we followed the book (Alter Ego 3). I like very much her clear voice - easy to understand and learn from it, I like her personal approach, and last but not least, I like her always sparkling mood. "  Jolijn - Kensington

" Vanessa is an excellent teacher who makes lessons interesting and fun. Her knowledge of French, French customs and history is second to none and her English is as good as any native. Her teaching methods are extremely motivating and encouraging and I now feel confident in travelling to France knowing I can understand, speak and read the language. Learning French has been a wonderful experience.
" Carol - Richmond

" I have worked with Stephanie for over a year and she managed to improve my basic level French and build my conversational level, so I was able to work well with my French colleagues. In addition she prepared me for the CCIP (Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie de Paris) exams successfully. A good teacher who makes the lessons challenging and interesting. "   Brian - Weybridge


" I have been enjoying French conversation classes for nearly a year. Stephanie is an excellent and able teacher. She makes each lesson educational, instructional and enjoyable. Above all Stephanie makes learning fun. She is very encouraging when one struggles and makes you think about the language from a fresh perspective. Stephanie prepares thorough, bespoke lessons. I would thoroughly recommend her for all levels of ability. "   Susan - Chiswick

" I have been taking classes with my tutor for over a year now and I am never bored in her class. The course is fun and full of variety between a conversation, grammar and videos type of learning. She is also the nicest person so it’s just very pleasant when the teacher is not only good but has a very nice personality. I feel that my French is improving for sure and would recommend the class to the prospective students. "   Elena - Central London

" I am learning French since the summer of 2014, and I found my tutor to be an outstanding teacher. Her lessons are always thoroughly prepared, well structured and implemented. She takes extra care to adjust assignments based upon my needs, and accommodated to my fluctuating schedule. Her professional and knowledgeable approach is an asset to any students she works with as she will most certainly inspire them with her intelligence, enthusiasm and creativity. "   Colette - Central London
