I am a natural teacher. I am enthusiastic, patient and interested in you and your goals. I believe learning is a great journey and that we learn best when we are relaxed, focused and enjoying working with the subject matter. To that end we can use any method that will work best for you. We may choose to sing, go on interesting cultural expedition (probably via the internet or the library, or?) and/or discuss your favorite occupations in relation to the course work, to integrate well with your life and your interests. It has to make sense to you. However, having received a traditional French education, I believe in setting a good foundation with a solid structure and base upon which to build and from which to go on rich side trips. I will work within the framework of your school and/or study program. I will do my best to give you confidence, high retention and mastery, and good results. As we go along, we will frequently evaluate the method and how you feel about your progress to keep on track and continue to strengthen your proficiency and future progress.
As for my background, I am a French-born person whose first language is French and who grew up in France, Belgium and Spain. I have been working in Los Angeles for more than 25 years in the arts and I have a very broad cultural background that includes history, mythology, philosophy, fine art, and an interest in Western and Eastern (Oriental) ideas and cultures. I have "hands-on" experience in all of those disciplines. I also read all the Harry Potter books!
