Preparation to exams, refresher trainings or just learning French as a hobby, I would be glad to help you the best that I can.
I am enthusiastic, approachable and a great listener, thus I would be happy to take any questions you may have!

About Bénédicte T.

I have a Master Degree in Fine Art (ENSBA, Lyon, France) and a Master Degree in Art Publishing (University Jean-Monnet, Saint Etienne, France).

I started teaching French and Literature at the same time I was working in a Publishing House specialized in Social Sciences in Paris. When I moved in South of France, I taught more regularly to teenagers and young adults and worked as Associate Curator for an artist-run space.
I am trained to teach French, French Literature and Art.
I have taught French for over nine years. Recently I have moved to New York and I have completed my curriculum by teaching to kids in an After School. My different activities in Art and Culture improved my teaching skills. My artist practice helped me to develop a visual way to stimulate your memory.

I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!
