Be a French speaker

Learn your way,
at your own pace

with a native teacher's help

Let me guide you

Hi! I am Agnès (pronounced “Ann-yes”). 

I am a passionate, experienced, native French teacher.

My passion: creating a safe, respectful space where anyone can learn at their own pace, in their own time, to suit their goals and their learning style.

I love my job because I see the spark in my students’ eyes when they understand something new or discover something exciting.

I know learning can feel daunting or uncomfortable at times because I am a learner too. At the moment I am learning: German, mindfulness, drawing, mathematics and coppicing.

As a teacher and learner, I believe in learning from mistakes and celebrating achievements.

Learning – both the easy and the hard parts – should be fun, interesting and relevant. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about ourselves and the world around us.

My students say...

Each student has their own way to learn and benefits from the lessons in different ways. 

Here is what some of them say.


Ms Sarah Thacker

Aim: Maintain a good level of conversational French

I have been having Skype lessons with Agnès for over 4 years and my French has improved massively.

The format of video link plus shared Google doc works really well.

I am now much more confident speaking French and I would strongly recommend the one to one classes. 

Worth every penny!

Mr J. P.

Aim: Maintain a good level of conversational French

“Agnès, I love my hour a week of French conversation.


 You have amazing patience, enthusiasm and teaching ability.”

Dr Barry Kingston

– Gain a reasonable level of conversational French to be able to converse with French family and friends, to follow French films and TV
– Read French literature

I have been having French lessons with Agnès since 2018.


I am an older student and found the prospect of lessons somewhat daunting.  However Agnès quickly put me at ease and I thoroughly enjoy my weekly lessons with her.

She is an outstanding and enthusiastic teacher, with a deep understanding and knowledge of French, and a great deal of experience in teaching it.  

She is very supportive and encouraging and one never feels inadequate. 


She readily adapts lessons to encompass any questions or specific interests that I have, and the lessons are informative and productive as well enjoyable.

I wholeheartedly and without any reservations at all, recommend her.

Ms Anna Gogleva

Aim: Learn French from scratch

I started learning French with Agnès as an absolute beginner after struggling with an avalanche of available resources on my own.


Working with Agnès helped me to make sense of the general structure of the language and quickly start putting this knowledge in practice. 


She truly makes the lessons personalised by drawing analogies to other languages I speak when explaining grammar concepts.


I really like that the lessons are self-paced and every time we focus on specific topics that I find unclear, or need more practice on.


Agnès is a very patient and empathetic teacher and provides encouragement even when I feel like I make very slow progress.


I appreciate that Agnès motivates me to discuss quite complex topics, even with my beginner-level grammar.


Looking forward to having more nuanced conversations as my French inevitably improves !

Ms Stacey Rowell
Aim: Speak fluent French when on holiday in France

I have been having French lessons with Agnès (French for All) since 2017 via Skype.


I had never used Skype before this and have found the lessons on it to be excellent.


Agnès and I make use of the instant message feature that works in Skype even whilst in conversation so I can clearly see the spellings of words and accents.


I have also been introduced to the world of Google documents where we can both edit a document online at the same time as having a Skype call.


Agnès is an excellent teacher and my French improves with every lesson.


She is also extremely passionate about languages and being a native French speaker is a great help.

Rebecca and Jonathan Escalante-Phillips

Aim: Practise and improve on existing school-level French

We have been having lessons with Agnès for several years now, with the aim of practising and improving the French we both learnt at school.


Agnès has been an incredibly kind, flexible and responsive teacher over the years, always willing to adapt to our latest topic suggestion and somehow able to cater to our individual needs at the same time.


We feel lucky to have found a teacher who is truly invested in her students successes both in and outside lessons.

Ms Serena Testi
– Improve on existing knowledge

– Develop fluency

I have been learning French with Agnès for almost a year, and I have really enjoyed it.

Classes are engaging and fun, never boring. Agnès is very good at planning lessons based on the student’s goals and interests.

I believe my French has improved quite a lot during the past year, and I look forward to further improvement!
