Private French Teacher

Being born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult students. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment.
Having learnt multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond two years ago, bringing many French books for all ages, that could be used during lessons.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons
=> For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or 60 min (100% conversation).
=> For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and how are their focus capabilities.

3- Is scheduling flexible? Do I have to pick a specific day/time and stick with it?

=> I teach on ...

Simina
Meriem is great! I'm working with her to get better at conversational French and she has great advice for how to improve outside of class (recommending some specific French shows, trying to watch them with French subtitles), along with doing an amazing job in class! She is great at challenging me - we'll start talking on a specific topic but she doesn't "let go" after just 1-2 sentences, she really tries to go deep. She's also always punctual and reliable for our lessons.
Adam
Excellent teacher! Makes lessons conversational and fun!
Lisa
Meriem is really amazing! She taught my 9 yr old son french, who had no experience, with patience and joy, and really made it FUN.

She was timely and provided great homework & detail after each lesson to practice in between lessons. She was always responsive with any inquiries.

We would highly recommend Meriem and will be utilizing her services again in the future!

Bonjour!

I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

If you get a chance to learn with Viktor you can consider yourself very lucky! He tought me spanish for over a year before I went to Colombia and it was thanks to his help that I could get a good grip of the language so fast and am now fluent.

In other words: You will learn a lot, in a very eficient manner and gain a friend at the same time! Thank´s a lot Viktor it was absolutely great to learn with you, I hope to see you soon!

"I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!"

"Mademoiselle Schram is intuitive to the student’s needs as a learner of the French language. In the beginning and as one continues with studying she will ask what interest one has in the French language and tailor lessons in accordance to goals and French studies. Always there is a thread of excitement in relaying information and teaching that only an instructor that loves what he or she does…is able to convey to and through the student. There is a wonderful level of comfort one derives from being in Mademoiselle Schram’s presence that acts as an impetus of flow for easygoing and interesting learning, instruction, and information. Also, she is clear in pronunciation of French and will continually break down words that one may have trouble when listening with a foreign ear and speaking by imitation and repetition. Mademoiselle Schram is elegant of manner, intellect, and “je ne sais quoi” (uniqueness) of a French woman that incorporates well into study and overall learning. She is able to answer questions regarding culture and mannerisms of French people and way of life succinctly. She is exceedingly patient when one asks questions and always responds with a ready compelling answer. Mademoiselle Schram guides one as a student successfully by being perceptive in incorporating, suggesting, referencing French learning aids, websites, and or other instructional devices that take a student’s level of learning French to another level. She is precise and consistently responsible in meeting at the exact time set for learning no matter where a student is in the world. She is constantly present and focused in the time allotted for French learning. She is also well prepared beforehand with every instruction which offers a smooth flowing transition from one aspect of french to the next. Mademoiselle Schram does not disappoint…if anything she delivers…and delivers the entirety of French exceedingly well. Thank you always Mademoiselle Schram for all of the knowledge you impart. Ainsi, J’aime Mademoiselle Schram. Merci beaucoup!"

"I began taking French lessons with Roula about three months ago and I think she’s a wonderful teacher. The materials she’s prepared herself are clear and instructive; and I like that the other learning platforms she uses have interactive elements that are great for practice between lessons. She tailors her lessons to your skill level, and I can say from experience that she’s very patient with beginners. She’s very nice, and very smart! I highly recommend her!"
