A native of Togo, French speaking West Africa, I have studied throughout my formal education in French all the way to earn two masters' degrees (The first in Adult Education and Curriculum Development, and the second in Business Management). In fact I consider French as my first language as my proficiency is higher in French than any other languages I have acquired over the years.
I have also been a French as a second language lecturer both for a large classroom and for individual students (age range: 10- 55) and taught for many years American missionaries relocating to French speaking Africa with great success. Many of my adult students also were business and church leaders from various English speaking countries in Africa.
I have been known to use very creative methods to help my students develop a better accent and master French vocabulary and grammar through one-on-one approaches using various audio-visual tools.

The students are responsible for their own course materials.
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 been privileged to live and/or worked in various countries and continents as a consultant and facilitator and have had a great track record for group facilitation and individual training and coaching within the the educational and business setting.
My students have made significant progress in conversational French, grammar, and vocabulary.
In addition, I have been instrumental in helping them navigate through/or understand French cultures (of France, of the French Carribean, French West Africa, and French Central Africa).
Making the lessons relevant helps students increase their acquisition and mastery of the language.
