French IB tuition
Tavistock Tutors can provide IB French tuition across London for a range of students of all different abilities. The ability to speak, read and write in a foreign language is a highly sought after skill in today’s workplace. Fewer students than ever are studying modern foreign languages in the UK, which makes our IB French students extremely desirable candidates for universities and employment. Students with French-speaking abilities can go on to work in such diverse fields as law, teaching, journalism, marketing, tourism and translation. Our qualified and experienced tutors will help your child with French speaking, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, culture, history and literature.
Our French IB tutors are on-call 365 days a year, during the holidays and after-school hours, so that we can offer your child extra support in their subject at the most convenient time for you.
Tuition specific to the French IB syllabus
We can provide French IB tuition, whether you are studying the French A or French B course. The French A IB course provides tuition in literature as well as language, which is one of the reasons why studying the French IB as opposed to A-level can be an advantage for candidates hoping to go on to study languages at university. The literature course covers works in translation, including Shakespeare, detailed study of works originally written in French, including Moliere and Camus, and an examination of literature and cinema.
The French B course is much more focussed on language and communication. Students studying this course are encouraged to communicate as much as possible in French. The course includes discussion of various topical issues, including communication and media, science and technology, cultural diversity, health, leisure, social relationships, global issues and customs and traditions.
Our tutors will help your child with all aspects of their French A or French B IB course, and encourage them to gain confidence in written and spoken French in time for their IB examinations.
Qualified and experienced French IB tutors
Our French IB tutors are chosen for their experience and qualifications. They are graduates in Modern Languages from top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and Durham. We also have some native French-speaking tutors, for students who wish to really perfect their pronunciation. Many of our IB French tutors have sat the IB French exam themselves, and are up to date with the syllabus and requirements for the course.
All of our French tutors have been chosen for their academic qualifications, expertise in French language and literature, extensive tutoring experience, and enthusiasm for communication and teaching. They design their lessons to be both enjoyable and productive. Learning French with our tutors is a fun and interactive activity. Our students are encouraged to communicate in French as much as possible, which is the fastest way to learn a language. One-on-one language tuition is necessary to see real improvement. In large classrooms, students do not get the opportunity to talk freely in the language, as every student needs to have a say. This is why language tuition is so important. Our tutors understand this and work hard to provide French IB lessons adapted to your child’s needs and abilities.
