My name is Lydie. I am an enthusiastic and devoted French teacher with excellent communication skills demonstrated by 20 years of teaching experience.
I have been very successful at teaching hundreds of students of various ages and levels of proficiency. Currently, I am giving private and online lessons to 18 students on weekly basis. Many of my students have been with me for about a year or longer. They are extremely satisfied because they are learning fast while having fun at the same time, and they are getting top-notch tutoring for a very reasonable fee.
I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary and overall fluency. I will work with you to evaluate your needs. I will adapt my methods to suit your learning style.
I am using the Communicative language teaching method. My students learn and practice French through the interaction with one another and with me. My goal is to enable my students to communicate effectively and appropriately in the various situations they would likely find themselves in. My students learn basic skills such as describing, enquiring, informing, explaining, inviting, suggesting, complaining and notions such as the expression of time, quantity, and location.
I was born and raised in Normandie, a north western region of France. I graduated from University de Caen Normandie in Adult Vocational Training. I spent 14 years teaching French to foreign students, and 6 years as an educator at the French school for children with disabilities and violent disorders. Currently, I am working as a teacher at a French immersion school in Austin, Texas.
I love my French culture, arts and literature. I enjoy reading classical novels especially by Zola, Balzac and Maupassant. I am passionate about sharing the very best of my culture with other people. That is why I am such a passionate French language teacher. My work and life experiences have thought me not only to be an effective teacher, but also to be compassionate and caring individual who can see potentials in every one of my students.
Your success is my success.
