Le français facile et rigolo c'est ici ! I was born in Paris' suburbs (Nogent-Sur-Marne). French is my mother's tongue but it is not enough to be a good teacher. I got a degree in French literature in 2002 (added to English, German, and Russian). I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Also people say I am super fun to work with. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purpose. Le français est une langue qui a beaucoup de charme, le secret est juste de pratiquer ! C'est facile ! Commençons avec les basiques, puis étape par étape nous progresserons ensemble !

This was the first time we used TakeLessons website to find a tutor for my son. We were a bit hesitant about the quality of teachers we may find on the site. There were many tutors for Photoshop to choose from but we went ahead with JC. His description of attention to quality and ensure kids have fun while learning is what attracted us to his profile. I must say, he lived up to the description in his profile and our son enjoyed the manner in which he spoke and how he conducted the lessons. I would recommend him for Photoshop definitely and we will continue to work with JC as our time and his time permit. Excellent Photoshop tutor!

I teach Conversational American Sign Language. If you want to be able to communicate effectively with Deaf people where you work, at your school, in church, or at the grocery store, you need this fun course. I like to teach students the way Deaf people really sign, and give them opportunities to interact with native ASL users to become comfortable in their signing.

Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences/ phrases and as time goes on, you'll be able to perfect your tones! I typically use practice books and have worksheets. I love working with students of all experience levels. Speaking is very important as much as reading/ recognizing characters. You'll be able to practice writing the characters the right way.
