Teaching since:

My name is Meroe. I grew up and was living and studding in Paris, I am an experienced and a passionate French Teacher.
To devote my life and my work for Teaching French, after a Bachelor’s in “French Translation and Interpretation” I did my Master Degree in “French Modern Literature” in the prestigious Sorbonne University. Then, I specialized in the field of Teaching French as a second language (FLE).

I Teach French in one-on-one or group settings to all ages and levels. I have loved Teaching French since 1998 to people of all ages and levels and I have worked with hundreds of students in their pursuit of Learning French Language and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French Language.

I approach clients with empathy, encouragement and joy and will coach you to hit your goals. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I provide an in-depth learning experience filled with productive exercises, meaningful advice and plenty of direct support and encouragement. I know that French can be challenging at times. I have a lot of patience and always keep an encouraging attitude. I am confident in my ability to improve anybody's language skills.

I love working with students on their writing and preparing for standardized tests. I take time to evaluate my students individual learning styles and goals. I always make sure that my students feel completely comfortable with learning a new language. There is nothing more rewarding to me than when a student's hard work is rewarded with a huge improvement or when they get the A on that essay we spent days perfecting.

If you are in one of these situations, then I can help you:

-Are you struggling with your French at school or home schooling, do you need grammar support or help to memorize the vocabulary and improve your pronunciation?

-Are you planning to go on vacations to a French speaking country and want to be able to read a menu card, order a meal, ask for directions, do some shopping etc..

-Do you just want to have French conversation because you love the French language?

-Do you want to prepare for your French exam?

-Do you work for a French speaking company and want to be able to have a French conversation on the phone, write or understand short French emails?

Whatever you are starting French or you want to improve your languages skills, I can help you to enrich your French skills with a fun and a very diversified program in a natural way!

For Private Tutoring, we start by having an initial meeting for 30 minutes to discuss your goals and define your French level.
This session is FREE of charge. A lesson may be cancelled and rescheduled with 24-hour notice. I strongly believe that learning a new language is not only a skill but also an art which opens new doors to a new world to everybody.

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

French · In studio

I myself am an educator and teach in several Community colleges and universities within Orange County for past 18 years.

I have the privilege of meeting and associating with Meroe since her arrival to United States few years ago, and also through some mutual friends whom they know her as family friend for past 25 years. I have found Meroe a very friendly, kind, helpful and dedicated to what ever she commits herself doing. Loves to work with people and make a difference in her path to her own self improvement.

I believe, knowing Meroe’s personalty and past work experience, as well as her uniques education background , she can be an asset to any educational facility's goals to serve and improve student success.

Meroe has a gift for clearly explaining the intricacies of French grammar. She has an advanced degree in French literature and extensive knowledge of French civilization and culture. Thus, she is well-equipped to lead fascinating discussions for learners in conversation classes.
