I offer a range of online lessons using the best technology to facilitate and enhance learning : from a simple conversation to maintain one's level to a thoroughly planned lesson that requires more involvement from learners.
I use an online platform which is very easy to set up. This platform makes your lessons accessible from all devices. You have unlimited access to your lessons and you can complete your assignments easily. Feedback is more effective as I can add regular and meaningful comments to your assignments.
One-to-one, two-to-one & Group lessons
These lessons are thoroughly planned and involve the four language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking. We will first assess your level and carefully set targets. You will be required to work regularly at home in order to make significant progress. I will send you homework homework at the end of each lesson. The levels of our courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
"My husband and I decided we would like to learn French in our own home as we have 2 young children and so it's difficult to go out together in the evenings. Estelle's classes via Zoom and google classroom work perfectly for us. I have been impressed by how well the IT has worked each week and I love the variety of exercises - such as watching short films, listening to audio recordings and reading exercises. The classes are tailored to our interests and we always end up having a laugh together. Estelle is an excellent, patient teacher. I would definitely recommend her classes to friends of all levels." Lizzie, pediatrician.
If you would like to maintain your level of French (intermediate or advanced) but do not have a lot of time to spend on homework at home, these classes are perfect for you. We will choose the topics of our conversations together. I will send you a list of vocabulary, corrections and suggestions on how to improve your speaking skills at the end of each class.
"I have no hesitation in recommending Estelle. Her classes are clear and focused and she provides lots of support. It's fun to be in her class. Her use of digital resources also makes home study convenient and easy to manage." Alasdair, writer.
Tutoring aimed at High School pupils & students preparing for their exams.
Before starting their first lessons, students' needs are thoroughly assessed. Each lesson is planned carefully and involves the four skills - reading, listening, writing and speaking. I follow the curriculum, reinforce the work done in class and prepare the pupils for their SQA exams (National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher) or their International Baccalaureate.
"I've had Mrs. Morali-Silver as a teacher for 3 years, this is my fifth year with her. She's such an understanding person and one of the best teacher's I've ever had. I got an A band 1 in my National 5 French thanks to her help. I would really recommend her classes; they're super fun and helpful." Eda, Advanced Higher student.
Lessons for kids
These lessons are fun and interactive for children from 8 years old. As well as learning specific vocabulary and doing exercises which involve the four skills - reading, listening, writing and speaking - children play games, listen to songs, watch short cartoons and talk.
