September 1993

Native French Speaker. I am originally from Lyon, France and have been living in the DC area for about 20 years.

I have over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience throughout the D.C. area, at Alliance Francaise, Berlitz, In Lingua, etc. I have been tutoring consultants and employees from major international organizations for the past 10 years as well as young children and teenagers from diverse backgrounds.

I am also a certified translator and will be happy to provide assistance if needed. I find both experiences extremely challenging and rewarding and I hope to use my skills on this forum.

Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.
