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.

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.

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!

Very helpful

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.

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 :-)

Excellent Tutor

Marie has all the tools to help me with my French - not only is she an excellent teacher, but she has an abundance of exercises to shore up each session's learnings and test my skills. Highly recommend.

Very thorough

Marie helped me to finally understand French articles. It is exactly what I needed to advance in French reading, speaking and writing. She has given me good explanations and resources.

patient

She is very patient and explains it clearly when I don't get it. Also, a very knowledgeable; empirical French tutor! You would like her a lot if you have a lesson with her!

Well guided lesson and interested in why I want to learn French

We discussed my interests and needs in French. Then we started addressing the biggest needs first. We had discussions and followed lesson plans. Marie is a skilled tutor and educator.
