We are looking for a qualified and experienced French tutor (or tutors) to teach a variety of daytime, evening and departmental courses. Classes are taught during the 8-week university terms, starting week beginning 11 October 2015.
LASR classes (Languages for Academic Study and Research) are intended for students who want to continue with a language they have studied previously, learn a new language either for study and research, or for pleasure. There are no exams, progress tests or certificates. Classes start in week 2 of Michaelmas Term (October 19) and continue in Hilary and Trinity Term.

The course is taught over two terms with an optional third term where students are given 1:1 tutor support to culminate in an examined oral presentation in week 6 of Trinity Term. The course has a progress tests at the end of Michaelmas and a final exam at the beginning of Trinity Term (late April).
Humanities and Maths courses are taught to Undergraduates. Both courses are taught for two hours a week during Michaelmas and Hilary terms, with an end-of-course exam for Maths students only.
