Hello! Have you ever wanted to learn French? Take it from me, it is hard work but we can do it together! How do I know that? Well, because I did it! I started learning French by walking into a school knowing how to say hello and where's the bathroom. From there, I worked hard to learn French and now I speak it fluently and teach as a full time French Immersion teacher. What better way to learn a language from someone who has also done it! I am excited to work with you on all aspects of the French language.

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I just received my doctorate from the University of Miami.

I have taught French to foreign people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students. I was also a French tutor during my Bachelor, Master and Doctorate programs.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!
