About Stewart

I hear many people tell me that they took French in school or college but they don't speak it which is unfortunate. I was born and raised in Belgium, a French speaking country, but English is my first language. I attended an international school and learned French at an early age. I speak it fluently. I believe this gives me an edge in teaching it effectively. For the past 10 years I have taught bilingual students at a public school in New York city. I have taught French as an extra curricular class to fifth, sixth and seventh graders. It is amazing how quickly they learn and can then add a knowledge of French on future resumes.
My approach: I teach basic conversation and grammar in conjunction while building vocabulary to build a solid foundation in the student. Pronunciation comes through practice and repetition, which will build your confidence as you grasp this beautiful language. With more advanced students an emphasis can be placed on written French if requested.

I love speaking French and teaching others. I have traveled to countries over the years where French is spoken; Canada, France, north Africa, etc. My qualifications include an international baccalaureate from the European School in Brussels. I'm a certified bilingual teacher at a public school in NYC. I have hands on experience having taught conversational French to adults. As mentioned above, I have also taught French to students in various grades with great results.

I look forward to hearing from you so you can brush up on your French and put it to use. A bientôt.
