I am a French native speaker with 19 years of experience teaching French as a foreign language and as a second or third language.

I teach students of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, as well as all levels from novice to fluent.

I have been teaching students in school settings (elementary, middle and high schools) and also teaching students who are schooled or homeschooled in addition to adult students from private businesses.

As a French native speaker, I will teach you the correct French pronunciation, understood in all francophone countries, as well as the cultural aspects of learning the language, in addition to speaking, writing, reading, and understanding along with grammar skills.

I will tailor the lessons to your needs whether you want to learn the language for pleasure, business or any other reasons.

French

My first experience teaching French as a foreign language was when I still lived in France as a teenager. I really enjoyed doing it and decided to continue on that path when I moved to the USA.
I have taught French to anglophones as well as people from other areas including Asian countries (Character based languages). I also have experience teaching students from francophone countries who live in the USA.
My strength is not only in teaching French vocabulary and grammar but also in teaching the culture associated with it.
