About Sylvie

Being a French native (from France), I have always enjoyed promoting the French culture. I have been teaching French for over ten years as a private one-on-one tutor to very young children, youth, and adults, including celebrities, in Los Angeles and in Germany.

As the French teacher in a private school in the Los Angeles area, I used to teach five classes a day from 7th grade (teaching of basic vocabulary) to 12th grade (role playing and shooting of a short movie in French).

Since I know the importance for you of succeeding to the SAT and AP tests, you can get a special training and coaching with some pre-tests and exams. Working as a team only success is allowed!

My goal is to help all my students maximize their potential learning with the right accent and pronunciation by using a proven method that brings real results.

I am a patient, competent and clear teacher who wants her students to use their full potential and succeed in life.
