I've been teaching French since 2014 and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral production. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!). I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France! I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

I've been teaching French for 14 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

Born and raised in Paris , France to a french mother and an american father. Teaching french is a true passion and joy. My classes are fun and if you want to work with a real teacher who can design a class just for you, I am the teacher you are looking for! Whatever your goals are with French, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Wether you , your spouse or kids would like to learn french, I adapt my classes to everyone's needs and goals. -"HELP , I'm going to France soon , I need some basic things to say" No problem ! -"I would like to be able to read books in french and have a conversation." Sure thing ! -"Can I be fluent in less than a year?" Yes you can if you're ready to work hard and have fun ! Whatever your reason is : you found the right person ! :) I can help you with : • Pronunciation ( so that nobody will answer you in English ) • What to know if you go to France soon ( so that you can know a little bit before you go ) • Basic to advanced conversation ( so you can make french friends and understand what they say ) • Train your ear ( so you don’t answer like a robot and recognize what people are talking about without thinking too much ) • Grammar / Vocabulary / Verbs AND I can also train you to get the DELF*** Certifications ( my student Sam who took the first test last month got approved with an amazing score of 89.50/100 ! ) ***The DELF is a diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French-language skills of non-French candidates. There are six independent diplomas, which correspond, respectively, to the six levels of the Council of Europe' s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). I’ll also teach you about french culture in general ( why french people behave a certain way , how we were raised , our values , why our humor is different , where to go in France, where to eat in Paris , understand the country ( France ) and the city of Paris , basically anything you want to know depending on what you want ! ) BUT DON'T WORRY , IT WILL BE FUN ! After the first lesson , ALL my students realize that learning french isn't scary anymore. So : qui veut apprendre le français ?* (*who wants to learn french?) I can train any level , any age , I just need you to want to speak french and to be ready to have fun doing it ! FAQ: - Do you have a specific method ? **I work with books that are certified by the french alliance. - How may hours do I need per week ? ** Depending on how fast you want to learn I recommend to start with twice 1 hour per week for a month to see if you like it and if you are motivated I think 4 hours per week ( 2 hours twice a week ) are ideal. - Will I have homework ? ** Yes or No , your homework will depend on your motivation and your free time between the lessons. I never give too much and it's always related to what we are working on. For example , the first lesson is the french alphabet , your homework will be to learn how to spell your name in french. - What do you give your students to help them become fluent in 1 year? ** If you want to commit to 1 year of intensive french , I will give you movies to watch in french, radio shows to listen to , songs to learn , poems to learn , books to read ( adapting to your level ) , I'll introduce you to real french people and I will only speak to you in french during the lesson ( of course if you don't understand I will translate , but the goal is to be lost without help, that's how I learned "real" english in 1 year in Philadelphia.) More questions ? Feel free to ask me using the ASK A QUESTION option ! Ready to book lessons with me ? Select the duration of the lessons you'd like to book and you'll be on your way to becoming fluent in french ! I look forward to meeting you ! A bientôt ! ( see you soon )

Living in France for 10 years now and having completed my Master's in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. For the past 8 years, my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly. I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

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?!
