My name is Raphaele and I have been a full-time teacher since 2004! I've just moved to Los Angeles!
I hold a MA in English linguistics, a MA in teaching French as a foreign language, and a MA in French as a foreign language linguistics and didactics. I've also got an ESL teacher’s training in France and I am a certified examiner for the DELF examination (French Language).
I have been teaching French since 2004 in language institutes and universities. Before coming to the USA I have taught in Britain, Japan, Mainland China and Hong Kong!
I can adapt to any of your wishes. I can teach classic language classes or focus more on grammar or phonetics or reading/writing or culture etc. Everything is possible!
I have been a full time university teacher in mainland China (3 years), and 4 years at the prestigious Chinese University of Hong Kong - ranked 40th worldwide - until recently (July 2013). At The Chinese University of Hong Kong, I was teaching French Language classes from level I to VI and phonetics class. I was also a course coordinator. My team and I trained students for French competitions (Pearl Delta River Inter-Universities Speech Competition, singing competition…) and they won several prizes such as 1st prize in 2012 and 3rd prize in 2013 in the renowned Speech competition!
I can speak Mandarin Chinese and passed the HSK 3 and HSKK 3 (Chinese Language examination).
I grew up on the beautiful island of Corsica and I studied in the west of France!
I am sure I can help you with your studies! I love teaching and also learning from my students! I am very patient and I will always help you to find a way to solve problems and improve, because I know it is possible!
