About me

Bonjour à tous !

Welcome to Solenne Jourdain French Tutoring, an established company based in Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire, serving the surrounding area, including Richmond, Darlington and the Yorkshire Dales. 

A French native speaker born and raised in Paris, I have been living in North East England since 2013, where I have been a full time French Tutor since 2014. 

I offer to teach French in-person or online, to students of all ages, nationalities and levels, in schools, companies, training institutes or within the frame of private tuition (one-to-one or small group tutoring). I am also a French language Instructor and Assessor for the British Ministry of Defence (MoD).

My approach is action-oriented, based on the ability of students to communicate (Speaking ; Listening ; Reading ; Writing ) in real life - authentic or semi-authentic - situations, according to the Common European Framework of references for Languages (CEFR).

I have an updated French Police Check and DBS Check.

How It Works

"Tutoring is not just guiding students through their learning but also giving them confidence and enabling them to experience lessons in a relaxed, friendly and yet result-oriented way. That is why I tailor my lessons to the students' needs and pace, in order to teach French language effectively
as well as to raise awareness to the French culture."

What Happy

Students Say

“Solenne has been an excellent tutor. She is incredibly hard working and always immaculately prepared for the lessons. She is full of ideas on how to approach the lessons and ready to adapt to her clients requirements. I cannot recommend Solenne highly enough as a private tutor.”
