Teaching since:
2009

I'm a native of the south of France who loves everything that comes with learning and teaching a new language, ranging from basic grammar to literature, including oral conversations about pop culture.

My strong interest for languages oriented me towards a "Literature Baccalaureate" for which I studied - among other fields - German, English, Ancient Greek and Latin, and graduated Summa cum Laude in 2010. After high school, I went on to study for five years at Sciences Po Paris, France's elite school for social and political sciences.

Learning about the hidden history of words and the construction of sentences has always fascinated me, and I strongly believe that this is what makes the difference between a regular native speaker, and one who can actually transmit his knowledge of the language. Writing and speaking a proper french is not enough. When it comes to teaching, one has to be able to explain the "why" behind each word, idiom and grammatical rule, because that is how we remember best. Combined with a burning desire to understand movies, songs and books in their original version, this method makes wonders. As one of my best teachers once told me : “ We get into a culture through its language, and we get into a language through its culture.”

Grateful for francophiles' interest in my native tongue, I'd welcome the opportunity to help you sharpen your skills and clear seemingly obscure concepts. Along the way, I hope to be able to communicate with you my keen interest for the French history, its twists and turns and important figures.

But first and foremost, I will adapt the content of my lessons to reach YOUR specific goal, wether it is to chat with friends, understand the news, or even get a job !

Soleine is a wonderful teacher who has helped us tremendously with our very limited knowledge of French. She is a native speaker - so we learn lots of fun cultural information in our lessons too!
