I am a native French speaker, born, raised and educated in France. I have been tutoring middle school, high school- SAT II, AP and IB French-, college students, adult learners from beginners to more advanced as well as French immersion students for the past 15 years. Whatever the objective may be - conversation, help with homework or test preparation - the private one-on-one setting offers a stress free working environment to help students gain confidence. I have been working with Wyzant since 2012. I am dedicated, flexible and thorough. My approach is focused on the unique needs and objectives of the student. I propose a tailored, personal plan - which can be adapted - to fit the skill level and pace of learning of each student thus ensuring that the lesson will be enjoyable and fruitful. I will always respond to emergency situations as I find great pleasure in seeing my students succeed. I enjoy very much having the opportunity to help and motivate others to further improve their knowledge of my native language and culture.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from UCO in Angers, France and a diploma in written and oral translation from the British Institute In Paris, University of London.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any additional questions or should you want to schedule a lesson!
Exceptionally skilled, patient and experienced French tutor
Marie has been working with our son at the Honors/AP level for over 6 months. She is an exceptionally gifted teacher who is patient, responsive and effortlessly meets a student at their level. The sessions are conducted in French which has allowed our sons speaking abilities to grow in conjunction with his grammar and composition skills. He is reading literature and poetry in French! We needed a skilled and experienced tutor who could work with a gifted student to take his French to the next level. Marie is exactly that! Thank you, Marie!Bernetta, 174 lessons with Marie
A great French Tutor
Marie instantly connected with my daughter and helped her feel confident with her French. She is focused on preparing for the AP French exam and Marie has already provided my daughter with resources and work to do outside of lessons. WIth her guidance, my daughter feels she will be more than prepared for the AP French exam.Sripriya, 7 lessons with Marie
French the French Way
Working with Marie has been the best thing I've done on my quest to finally learn Fench. She is thoughtful, kind, extremely patient and very thorough. With her help I have finally found the right way to study and learn again. At 72 I thought I would never be able to retain much, but Marie has shown me exactly what I need to do at each step of the process. I know I will finally realize the dream I have had since I was 15 years old! Thank you, Marie.Gregory, 1 lesson with Marie
Patient, kind and encouraging!
Marie takes the time to make sure I understand each lesson before proceeding, and she does not hesitate to review an old area that I struggle with. She is encouraging and positive, which helps when you are new to a language. Thank you!Gina , 65 lessons with Marie
Very helpful - my daughter loves working with Marie
Marie helped my daughter prepare for her IB French oral exam this past month. My daughter enjoyed working with Marie and felt very prepared for her exam. Marie was flexible and professional. We would highly recommend working with Marie.Katherine, 7 lessons with Marie
Marie helped my daughter improve her grammar. Her spoken languages was very good, however her grammar was behind. Marie patiently worked with her to figure out where the gaps were and worked tirelessly to improve on these points. They spoke French throughout their lessons, which in turn also helped my daughter improve her vocabulary and continue practicing speaking French. We are very great fun to have found her and all she’s done to help my daughter improve.Natasha, 11 lessons with Marie
Absolutely Amazing and Knowleageable
My daughter is in HS Honors French and has been struggling since school started in August. My daughter is excited. She learned more in her first session with Marie than she has since the start of the school year. My daughter feels she can do it instead of having self doubt. This is the first time that we have used a tutor and it is worth it. We are impressed with her.Alisa, 7 lessons with Marie
A real teacher
Marie tutored my eldest daughter to prepare for the French AP exam, even though my daughter had not taken AP French. She got a 5! Marie then tutored my middle daughter over the summer to prepare her for a placement test that would allow her to skip freshman French. My daughter loved the lessons and really improved her French in a way that she had not done in school. Marie was very conscientious, professional, and effective. We'll be back for more lessons in the future!Debra, 60 lessons with Marie
She taught me different ways that my school teacher did not explain well. So far she helped me accomplish how to tell when to use passe compose and imparfait. Looking forward to learn more from her! When school starts I will definitely improve in French.Julia, 10 lessons with Marie
Patient and Knowledgeable French Tutor
This year I took AP French. I was hesitant to speak only in French as I began my French learning journey quite recently, about 3 years ago. Before then, I had learned Spanish. However, Marie was able to guide me effectively through her vast knowledge of the French culture. We discussed famous chefs, architecture, the French food culture, etc. and I found my confidence growing. I was able to get a 5/5 on the exam and I have no doubt that it was because of her expertise and patience with me. I now speak French confidently despite having a late start to the language compared to my peers. I would recommend Marie to anyone who is looking for a patient, humorous, and devoted teacher. Merci Beaucoup Marie :-)Jaya, 26 lessons with Marie
