Hi, there! My name is Antoine and I am a native French speaker. I work as a freelance editor, journalist, translator, writer and teacher. I have had a distinguished career as a journalist for more than 10 years in Africa and Europe. In particular, I have worked in several radio stations, television, print media, and business. I am also a published author. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and a Master’s in Business Administration from University of Nice, France. Since 1998, I have been teaching private French lessons. I enjoy having fun with my students.
I like playing soccer, volley ball, and riding bikes. One day in the summer of 2013, I rode from Redmond to Seattle round trip for more than 4 hours. I was exercising a lot in order to lose weight for my wedding in Paris that summer. Well, I succeeded. I was very handsome that day in Paris. Now, my wife and I are enjoying life under the cloudy, but blessed sky of Seattle.
I meet with my students at the public library in Redmond, WA. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have really enjoyed my first few lessons with Antoine. He is very patient and thorough; i feel my confidence growing each week. I definitely recommend him to other French students.
