Bonjour and hi to my future students,
Native French speaker here and intense reader who is passionate by French literature as well by the language practice itself.

My name is Aissa, as my daily job, I am a pathologist here in the U.S. but I was Born and raised in Belgium and lived in Paris for 10 years.
French is my native language but not only I am passionate about it, I have been Lucky enough to share it with people who are really interested by the language.

I have been tutoring French for as long as I can remember (around the age of 16), and did so with my classmates who were struggling, to my nephews in France and England and to my friends here in the U.S. I have done it for free with people I know and just because of the passion to share the language but I have also done it as an official paid tutor.
I am very patient and try to focus on my students needs without the arrogance of mastering my own language, which I shouldn’t get credit for anyway.

If I meet someone in the street in Paris who needs my help and try to do it in French, my philosophy is to always trying to adjust myself to understand different accents and not expect from them to be perfect speaker in a language that is not their native one.


I am not here to judge you but to help you to achieve your goals, my sessions will always be built around your needs and not mines.
We'll take it slowly if you want me to but we can also go more intensively if that's how you want. I will only recommend you how we should do it but you are the student and will end up being the one and only making the decisions about the way of learning that fits you the best, all based on my recommendations and observations that you are free to consider.

I am so far away from the arrogant attitude that makes some teachers feel they should be listened and followed since they master their own language. Yeah I do master the French language and yeah I have always been on top of the French speakers who practice, teach and speak a proper French with the love for the language.
But that being said, it doesn't give me the right to judge you or expect you to be at my level. I just love sharing my knowledge with my students in the way that can help them and make them gain in confidence.
