About Linda

Bonjour,

I am from France, and I enjoy foreign languages so much that I chose to obtain my bachelor’s degree in international interpreting and translating with French, English, and Spanish. I understand exactly what it takes to learn a foreign language, and I’m committed to make it an exciting and successful experience for you.

I have been a private one-on-one tutor in Los Angeles for the past five years working both with adults and younger students, from beginner to advanced level. Nothing makes me happier than to share my native culture and weave that into the contents of our session together, so as to make it a fun experience.

I offer tailor-made sessions depending on the level of the students, whether or not they are enrolled in school or corporate education and already following a specific program and of course, depending on their personality and their capacity to learn.

If you’re looking for conversational-only lessons, we can focus on specific themes that are of interest to you. An American producer student of mine made outstanding progress by learning how to talk about her business in French and with the correct pronunciation. I’m committed to help all my students maximize their potential by being a creative tutor.

If you’re preparing for your SAT and AP tests, I’ll team up with you and do my very best to set you up for success. I am very patient and also demanding because I know first-hand of the discipline required for language learning, and I take it seriously. But rest assured: I have a great sense of humor, which I think is an essential ingredient of the learning process.

Being a people person, I naturally make people feel at ease, and I use my communication skills to ensure constant clarity in the teaching process.

On a personal note, becoming a tutor has been a very rewarding experience and has offered me the flexibility of pursuing a professional trilingual acting career.

One last thing: whatever level of French you’re at: don’t be discouraged by setbacks. Regular practice and getting support from a qualified and experienced French native will take you to the next level.

Please get in touch with me, let’s have a first evaluation session and let’s talk about your goals. It’s never too late to begin!

Au revoir,

Linda

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

Being a French Native with a Bachelor's Degree in International Interpreting and Translating, I bring not only my knowledge about language learning but also an infectious enthusiasm for the French culture which in turn leads to positive results in the learning process.

Theatre

I have been a professional actress for over 15 years and I have had the pleasure to perform on stage in London, Paris and Los Angeles. In addition, I have appeared in several films and TV shows and I am a member of SAG-AFTRA, the union for professional performers.

The years of professional training I have received both in Europe and in America combined with my professional experience would benefit acting students and help them build the confidence and technical tools they need in order to make their performing experience enjoyable as well as an opportunity for growth.

If you need to prepare for a role at school or for an audition, please get in touch with me and let’s get you ready.
