Why is it important to learn a second language?
-Creativity is increased with the study of a foreign language.
-Opens up a world of job opportunities.
-Establish deep connections and cross-cultural friendships. My name is Maria-Madeleine Ferrand.

Madeleine is fantastic! She is so passionate about you learning she makes things easy and fun to learn and she adapts the lessons to what you need and want to learn. She absolutely is the best!!!
I can't say enough about Madeleine, as I am grateful to have found her on Wyzant. She was extremely supportive, and attentive with my daughter, breaking down all the factors of learning a foreign language. She also understood my daughters learning ability and adjusted her style of teaching in a way that my daughter could grasp and understand the material. I highly recommend Madeleine. She was timely, and flexible with her schedule. My daughter took her last Spanish final exam this week and I am confident my daughter will get a B or an A as her final grade.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have participated in various teaching programs which provided me tools on how to teach Spanish to non-native speakers.
These are my continuing education courses:
-Project Optimist, School of Counseling and Pedagogic Training.
- The Art of Educating, Waldorf Pedagogy at University of Lima
