About MARIE

Learn French With a native From France! My name is Marie and I am a dedicated tutor from France who has worked not only privately at all levels but also taught at Berlitz Languages and in DC elementary schools. Whether you are a beginner, an advanced learner, a student who wants to succeed in your studies, a professional who wants to learn customs before visiting France or you simply want to improve your conversational and writing skills, don't hesitate to contact me. My goal is to engage you to a unique true immersion into the French Language.

I believe that learning a language is not just about the language, it's also about the culture, the idioms, the "why of the how" and the history. Learning a language should be a fun experience with a solid base! To achieve a fun learning environment for my students, I use audiovisual teaching aids, board games, flashcards, music and all language materials. I like to create up-to-date real life scenarios in my lessons. I have excellent rapport with both children, college students and adult learners. Lessons can take place at my home, or your place.

Learn Spanish!

I have a Bachelor's degree in Foreign Language with a concentration in Spanish. I speak, write and read Spanish. Spanish is a romance language and one aspect I found very similar to French is the grammatical concept. Therefore, I have a great command of Spanish grammar and I can help you fully understand sentence structure in Spanish as well as how to conjugate Spanish verbs and understand why the verb comes before the subject sometimes! Do you need help translating compound sentences or trying to find the right vocabulary for idioms? Need help writing essays in Spanish? Or you simply want to learn how to speak and read Spanish? As your private tutor, I can help you achieve whatever goal you set for yourself! To create a fun environment in my Spanish lessons I use audiovisual teaching aids, board games, flashcards, news, podcasts, music and all language materials. I like to create up-to-date real life scenarios in my lessons. I have excellent rapport with both children, college students and adult learners. Lessons can take place at my home, or your place.

Piano Lessons: I have been playing piano for 20 years and my background is classical music. I have taken piano lessons with one of the best teachers in France. I have won honorable mention, second place, third place, and other awards at numerous competitions in France. I am currently pursuing an associate degree in Music at Northern VA Community College. I teach beginner and Intermediate level.

Learning should be a fun experience! I hope to hearing from you soon.
