Teaching since:

Hi, there! My name is Julien and I can't wait to meet you! I was born and raised in France and I went to Université of Nice in France and earned a Master's degree in Teaching French as a Foreign or Second Language in 2008. I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learning French. I'm a dynamic and enthusiastic person and my teaching style is personalized to my students needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I am a native French speaker with a several years of experience in teaching French and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Nice, France. I was tutoring French, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching French while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to NYC. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored French to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and French subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker, I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting.

I love his approach and patience with me. I am a visual learner and having him write the phrases for me truly helps my comprehension. Merci!
