About Florence

Hello,

I am a French native tutor living in Northern Houston and I am totally fluent in French. I come from the North of France, right between England and Belgium.
In the past years, I have been a tutor for many students who wanted to improve their French in many ways and at different levels (school - personal - professional).

I can teach you from the beginner level to the finest and most elegant way of speech or writing.

My background helps me to fit to any situations and requests, and I can teach individuals or groups. My schedule is also pretty flexible, but I am usually available in the mornings.

I have teaching experience of more than 5 years with teenagers and adults in different sorts of professional schools and universities. And I gave beginners lessons to children of all ages, using cooking, crafting, reading, singing all along... types of tutoring. The most important thing is... it has to be fun!! Voila!

For all kind of students (even for the adults), I ask them what are their favorite hobbies or interests and I do my best to give the perfect fit they need to learn French the easiest and the most interesting way they can. I also refresh the mind of anyone who will travel to a French-speaking country by proposing a mix of language and cultural topics.

I've got 3 different college degrees in modern literature, American/French culture and international business.
I have more than 20 years of experience in a various range of fields:
business- international sales - professional and educational training - hotels and restaurants - real estate - fashion - home decor - arts and crafts - culture and entertainment - cuisine - parenting tips - family and marriage advice - motivation - entrepreneurship - tourism and travels.

I am also happily married since 2002 and I am a mom of 3 wonderful daughters (17, 12 and 11).
I love baking, crafting and reading.
Please feel free to ask me more details about my expertise, and contact me for any request.
Thank you and have a nice day!
Best regards.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Cooking

Cooking is one of my passions.
As I am native French, I've learned how to make specific and traditional recipes early on from pastry chefs in my family, and I use them every day.
I can also teach the cultural topics that come with French food and "art de vivre".
And I also have a small local business where I sell French cakes, pies and treats. People love them!

French

French native tutor qualified in conversational and cultural topics for all levels.
3 Bachelor degrees in Modern Literature, French and American civilizations, and International business.
Creative Teaching Techniques.

Needlework

I've been making traditional embroidery, cross-stitch and quilting for many years and I practice every day of my life. I am totally fond of needlework!
I have a craft space at home, so I can teach wherever students may want to learn. I already taught specific techniques in craft groups.
I also sell my own projects online.
