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, 77 lessons with Marie
Fun and knowledgeable.
Marie is easy to talk to, and makes lessons fun. She is, of course, full of knowledge, being a native of France. She is patient, and encourages me to take risks.Dan, 1 lesson with Marie
Marie was very helpful. She helped with pronunciation and was adept at presenting information in understandable way. She was also patient and laughed at my daughter's bad jokes. Thank you!Lisa, 2 lessons with Marie
Marie is Amazing!
Marie had been working with my ten year old daughter for a few weeks now. She is kind, warm, encouraging and my daughter is always so excited to meet with her. She is a native speaker (so am I, so this was very important to me) and she understands how to teach elementary aged children. I recommend Marie wholeheartedly and she will begin working with my seven year old daughter this summer, too.Adelaide, 21 lessons with Marie
Marie is an amazing instructor!

Knowledgeable and Patient
Marie taught my nine-year-old daughter and was able to engage her in learning, and working hard, while making the class fun. My daughter had big smile on her face after the class. She learned new concepts and enjoyed herself. She can't wait for the next class.EMILY, 25 lessons with Marie
Marie was very, very helpful to me. She understood exactly what I needed and gave it. I recommend her whole heartedly. Karel C.
I had a talk to give in French and Marie reviewed the talk and gave me the corrections and guidance I needed. She had corrected the text ahead of time and made further corrections as we spoke together.Karel, 1 lesson with Marie

She is great at building confidence through her unusual patience and sophisticated understanding of how people learn, as well as her thorough understanding of the fundamentals of the french language. I wholeheartedly recommend her!!!Joann, 80 lessons with Marie
