Bonjour, bonsoir! Permettez-moi de me présenter. Let me introduce myself.
I am a native French speaking tutor, very fortunate to have received the best education possible, that allowed me to enjoy a very successful international career. Having left the corporate world, I have the time and opportunity to share my passion for knowledge, in French and science/math.

My experience in tutoring started many years ago during my high school (Classic Latin/Greek Humanités) and university years (Master of Sciences degree). I tutored younger pupils in maths, French, with outstanding success and great moments!
Today, I am tutoring elementary, middle and high school students as well as adults in French, with similarly great results. My students improve their grades and have a proud feeling of achievement.

During a lesson, I am trying to make the time very enjoyable. Multilingual, I understand the peculiarities of the cultures of the different parts of the world. I teach the matter as a teamwork, joining seriousness with a touch of humor, making the lesson relevant for the objectives and expectations of the student(s). The lesson becomes a pleasant moment leading the student wanting to know more about French and looking forward to the next lesson. I am looking forward to helping you to be comfortable with the beautiful French language.

As a commitment to Education and its critical importance, for years, I was the Chairman of the Board of St. John's International School in Waterloo, Belgium.

French

I received a very global and detailed education in all matters, especially languages and maths. I dare to say that I excel in French spelling and grammar, having been taught the "Grevisse French grammar", recognized in France and Belgium as the reference grammar book. During my high school years (Humanities Classics Latin-Greek), I not only learnt French even more in depth but also its roots from Latin and Greek. Furthermore, with 31 other pupils, selected for their aptitude and eagerness to learn, I was part of the first bilingual class in the country, French/Dutch. Later I learnt to speak English, Italian and German. From my last years in high school and my university years till today, I built a very broad experience and unique expertise in teaching younger children in maths, physics and especially French. While meeting the requirements and objectives, I teach by making the lesson fun and entertaining, enjoying the time spent, making the matter relevant for the student today's and tomorrow's life and naturally ending up having the student wanting more and getting better grades. The feedbacks from my students are my best ambassadors.

I have had a very unique education, combining languages and scientific matters (algebra, geometry, fluids engineering, etc,...). This education allowed me to enjoy a very successful international career. So, I always keep in mind the ultimate goal of education when tutoring and relate the lesson to its usefulness for the student's future, adding a reason to excel in this subject. I started tutoring years ago during my high school and university years. I tutored young students from elementary, middle school and high school in maths, with outstanding success and great moments! Bringing the students from being uncomfortable with maths to being on top of the class, smoothly and enjoyably.

Well organized, kind, and engaging tutor

Alain is a wonderful tutor four our 13-year-old twins. He is well organized and he makes learning French fun! He is very knowledgeable on language differences which will help in learning the language precisely.

Holly, 21 lessons with Alain

Kind, attentive, supportive

My son has not only improved his French with Alain as his tutor, he has become more engaged. He enjoys going to his weekly sessions, and has grown more confident in his language usage. A good teacher and a good person.

Jeffrey, 28 lessons with Alain

Great French Tutor

Alain identified the boys' weakness in French and laid out the plan. The first class is quite productive. He helped them revised their writing assignments, summarized the key points of grammar, practiced the listening and speaking.

Sherri, 8 lessons with Alain

Great feedback from my daughter (14 years old)

My daughter really enjoyed her first French class with Alain and is looking forward to the next one. Alain went over all that she knew to make sure the class was as productive as possible.

Miguel, 4 lessons with Alain

Excellent French Teacher!

Alain has been teaching French to my 2 daughters (Age 7 & 9) twice a week for the past month. Both of my daughters French is quite advanced and he is able to help them continue learning french speaking/reading/writing/listening as "native french speakers". His classes are a lot of fun and both of my daughters look forward to each class! Merci Alain!

Very Knowledgeable!

Very patient, thorough and flexible. Alain is a native French speaker so you know your child is learning correct pronunciation. He is an excellent tutor and established a relaxing but professional rapport with our son.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

My daughter is in AP French where she needs to go beyond conjugating verbs and begin to speak and write fluently, Alain was very helpful with explaining the nuances of the French language to her. We will be returning to Alain for more French help!
