About Lauren

I've been teaching French at private academies for over 7 years, and have been tutoring one-on-one for over 12 years.

Born and raised in France, I graduated with a master in Public Affairs from Sciences Po in Paris, France’s most prestigious school for politics and a school notorious for training the French political and business elite. I have been teaching French language and literature to both children and adults at private academies all over the world to learners across all levels of fluency, from beginners to intermediate, advanced, and business students.

My students come to me for various reasons: some are looking to learn French from scratch and achieve fluency quickly (beginners and intensive French); others wish to prepare a family trip to France (travel French); some are getting ready for a transfer to France and need to learn the French business etiquette before their move (business French); many have studied French previously and want to regain their French speaking skills (refresher courses); and some students, mainly actors and advanced speakers, are interested in perfecting their pronunciation (accent coaching).

In addition to teaching French, I have extensive experience in editing, translation and interpretation. I served as an interpreter at the French Embassy in Korea and regularly translate books, legal material, and research papers.

My method focuses on interactivity, natural learning and cultural immersion. You'll see that I use a variety of authentic materials in our lessons to focus on all four skills and to also learn the fun side of the French culture: my lessons incorporate plenty of fun anecdotes and real content that will get you closer to understanding France and its history, and will help you gain a knowledge of the French culture as vast and as intimate as if you were a French native.

This makes each session unique, fun and interesting. Also, I customize all my lessons based on my students' interests and goals: I believe that learning based on what you love most is the key to getting real results, fast. Unlike many teachers who don't really have structured classes, my method will get you to quickly understand, learn and use key structures of the French language and understand the grammar, so you can speak with ease fast.

And if you become one of my favorite students, you'll also discover that I drink a lot of hot chocolate.

Investing in yourself is the best thing you can do. If you're looking for an Ivy League-level teacher who can help you acquire advanced language skills, a broad knowledge of various topics, and develop your critical thinking, let's get in touch. I can't wait to help you reach your goals!

Approved subjects

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.

French

I'm a native French speaker from France and I've helped countless of learners across all levels of fluency master the Language of Molière through immersion-based learning.

I graduated with a master in Public Affairs from Sciences Po in Paris, France's most prestigious school for politics and diplomacy. Jacques Chirac, François Mitterrand, Nicolas Sarkozy, Boutro Boutros-Ghali and François Pinault all count as some of my school's famous alumni, and Dominique Strauss-Kahn (former head of the I.M.F.) lectured my economics classes.

I'm also a passionate Francophile and an anthropologist at heart. I love to help my students discover what makes France unique by sharing with them cultural facts and lesser-known stories about France's vibrant culture.

Last but not least, I've developed French language programs for award-winning education companies, I've translated numerous books and research papers, and I'm a regular contributor to numerous influential publications on language learning strategies.
