I am a native French speaker from Belgium, who has been living in the US since 2001. I obtained a French instructor certificate in 2004 and successfully taught French to my children. I am also part of cross-cultural programs for expatriates in French-speaking countries (France and Belgium).

Being a mother of 4 children, a classroom volunteer (meaning with a checked background), and former psychologist, I have excellent communication and contact skills. I will customize my lessons for you regarding your specific goals and learning type.

I believe that memorization works better through intriguing material that suits the level and age of each student.

I look forward to meeting you to access the wonderful and rich experience of French language acquisition!
