Elise Lines – French and Spanish tutor

After completing her Language & Marketing degree in London in 1996, Elise worked as a French assistant at Thames Valley University for 2 years. She then moved to Paris and worked for a record company for 4 years, before moving back to London and specialising in marketing and branding. After having her sons, she started teaching French in nurseries and primary schools. It made her realise that she really enjoys teaching children, which she has been doing since 2013. Elise has always enjoyed living in the UK but must admit that there is one thing she misses from France: the weather!
