A motivational and respected senior teacher with 32 years of experience, I excel in teaching through the delivery of engaging lessons. Specialising in MFL, I am a strong and confident communicator, speaking three foreign languages French, German and Spanish with excellent public speaking and presenting skills. More recently, I have also specialised in 11+ tuition, coaching pupils through English, maths and non-verbal reasoning. I am versatile, creative, have great enthusiasm and passion for my field of work and am consistently recognised as an innovative role model. In 2010, I was approached by Teachers Media, for whom I planned and featured in two training films, modelling a sequence of MFL lessons and talking through creative teaching and learning methodologies.

Reading French Tutor

Throughout my career to date I have endeavoured to bring great enthusiasm to all of my teaching and tutoring. As a result the vast majority of the students that I have tutored have gained high grades at GCSE and A-level, and most have continued to be successful in their university studies. While studying for my PhD I taught classes for two years to first and second year undergraduates at St. Andrews. I have also taught language classes to adult learners at Reading University Summer School, involving both beginners and intermediate students, and I am used to catering to the needs of students at various stages of their learning. My style is relaxed and I always aim to make learning enjoyable while promoting academic progress. I also encourage active participation and believe in allowing all students to comment constructively on their own progress and the different activities undertaken in lessons and tutorials. I can tutor students in English, French, History, Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Studies.

Lucy is an exceptional Modern Languages teacher whose guidance and expertise played a pivotal role in my successful admission to Balliol College at Oxford University. Her commitment to her students' academic growth and her unique teaching style have left an indelible mark on my educational journey. Lucy provided me with invaluable private tutoring, which went far beyond the conventional classroom experience. Her dedication to my success was evident in the meticulous interview preparation, extensive poetry and prose analysis, and comprehensive grammar work in French that she tailored to my needs. Her ability to break down complex language concepts and literary nuances made the subject not only accessible but also fascinating. Lucy Nott's personalised approach to teaching enabled me to gain a deep understanding of the French language and significantly boosted my confidence in facing the rigorous Oxford admissions process. Her unwavering support and encouragement created a positive and motivating learning environment, and her mentorship has been instrumental in shaping my academic and professional aspirations. T. Way

Mrs Nott is a most professional, experienced and dedicated teacher of Modern Languages. She was invaluable in helping my son gain a place at Balliol College, Oxford, helping with his personal statement, preparing papers, discussing articles and assisting him with mock testing and interviewing. She is patient, understanding and inspirational - my son trusted her and we did too. Importantly, she also managed to make the process fun ! Katharine Way

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our French teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a French tutor coming to your home in Reading to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the French tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the French tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the French tutor is required to travel to your home, in Reading. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your French tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your French tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of French tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group French tuition in Reading depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
