About Marie-Agnes

Bonjour à toutes et à tous !
As a French native speaker who has a Master in linguistics (Master 2 Sciences of Languages), I am particularly interested in utilizing my language skills, and incorporating my successful years of teaching French language as a foreign language at the beginner, intermediate and/or advanced level .

I know from my own experience that learning a foreign language should be both a pleasure and an enjoyable adventure. That's why, I always do my best to pass all of this on to my students in an enjoyable and relaxed manner.

That's why my goals are:
- To pass on my French language knowledge and know-how onto students.
- To exceed expectations and show positive results.
- To ensure that all my students expand their knowledge and learning abilities.

I enjoy teaching students at any age, and helping them build confidence in order to enable them to succeed academically and socially.

I am an extremely active and keen person specializing in French and Ancient History. I am devoted to present the best teaching methods and cater to students of any age.

I possess a valid Single Subject, Credential: California French Credential and the DAEFLE, teaching Credential from Alliance Francaise. I have experience in teaching language and culture courses and integrating instructional technology and social media in classroom. In each teaching position I have held, I have been a popular instructor. My courses always filled up quickly as students enjoyed my teaching style. I believe that it’s important to use authentic documents with meaningful content so that learners are motivated to learn. This approach is to actively teach content-specific language while providing ample opportunities for students to use that language both in meaningful class discussion and in writing. Thus, by giving the opportunity for input, students generate ideas and set goals that make for much richer activities than compliment my own ideas. When students have ownership in the curriculum, they are motivated to work hard and master the skills necessary to reach their goals.

Assessment:

Excellent achievement:
- Received 100% positive feedback from my students in each position I have held.
- Additionally 100% of my students who took the DELF,TCF and DFP affaires tests of CIEP ( institution of the French Ministry of National Education) successfully passed with honors.

Why should I be selected?


- Specialized in phonetics and oral & written didactic.
- Tutoring, teaching, and monitoring experience in teaching French Language&Culture.
- Comprehensive understanding of the skills needed to cover a wide range of student abilities.
- Commitment to each individual student to enhance/ develop linguistic competency in French for the four core abilities: reading, writing, listening and speaking..
- Provide tutorial assistance to students studying all levels of French, assist with assigned homework.
- Prepare exercises designed to make the sessions interesting and educational, including thought provoking quizzes and substitution drills, geared towards helping my students to comprehend and memorize material.
- Can prepare you to take any French proficiency test with successful result:
For examples: the SAT in French ; the DILF-DALF-DELF at all levels (from A1 to C2) on the competency scale defined by the Council of Europe (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages administered by the Centre international d'etude pedagogiques ( CIEP); Or/and the TCF Test de connaissance du français designed by the CIEP and awarded by the French Ministry of Education
; or/and The DPF Affaires with the Chamber of Commerce of Paris.


Strengths:
- Can formulate efficient teaching programs to make students more focused.
- Devised methods of quickly improving French language students grasp of the basics.
- Meticulous in my approach to work.
- Patient and approachable teaching manner that meets students’ individual and group needs.
