About Benedicte


Bio

Born and raised in France, I obtained my French "baccalauréat" in La Source, France. I later obtained my BA of Arts (in French and Spanish) from SMU, Texas, and my Teaching Certification from Texas A&M Commerce. I have taught French at Dallas International School (IB track), and at Trinity Christian Academy (AP). While teaching, I tutored both my own students, and other students. When Covid-19 started, and my campus had to close, I conveyed content to my students remotely.

Born and raised in France, I obtained my French "baccalauréat" in La Source, France.

When Covid-19 started, and my campus had to close, I conveyed content to my students remotely.

I like to help in general. It is exciting to me when someone needs/has the desire to learn about the French language and culture, and I can fill that need. There is nothing more rewarding to me than witnessing those "Aha" moments from a student, and seeing him/her succeed, and become confident. I
In March, because of Covid-19, I also remotely finished tutoring a dyslexic client of 2 years, who had ADHD. I was so proud of her for obtaining a A+ on her trimester exam, when French was never an easy subject for her.
Current teaching certificate in the state of Texas.
13 years experience in teaching and tutoring.

Whether you are a child or an adult (or anything in between), whether you need help on a specific topic, on vocabulary, on structure, on pronunciation, on culture, with conversation, or preparing for a test, I would be happy to schedule some sessions with you and see you grow!

Great French tutor

Benedicte is a very patient and creative tutor. She easily formed a rapport with my adolescent son and gave him an excellent grammar lesson. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their French.

Regina, 1 lesson with Benedicte

Really great French tutor who makes learning fun

I'm a sophomore in high school who wanted to get more practice and help outside of school in French. I've found it a challenging subject. I've been working with Madame Benedicte for 6 months and so far, and I've had a lot of fun. She has worked with me on a wide variety of subjects in grammar as well as French culture. Some examples are verb tenses, object pronouns, important french holidays and current events. And, just speaking french and practicing with her is hugely helpful. Doing it over zoom is also extremely convenient and this method is more affordable for our family too. I highly recommend! Working with Madame Benedicte has been extremely beneficial to my proficiency in class and has helped me a lot with speaking and making conversation in French. She is very flexible with the topics she teaches and is much more helpful than past tutors I've had. I have a lot of fun learning about French culture and discussing current news and she makes it easy to review past subjects I need help on. I would definitely recommend Madame Benedicte, especially if you need help with practicing topics you're learning in class or exploring beyond them.

Great AP French tutor

My kid was hesitant to have a tutor but after the first lesson she really like how Bénédicte was able to put her at ease and able to learn finer points needed for the AP level.

Excellent Tutor

Benedicte has worked with my children all summer on French. She is helpful, patient and challenges them to do their very best. She also follows up with me after each lesson with a progress report. My kids love Benedicte and I highly recommend her!

French 2 Pre AP Tutor

Can see big difference in daughter's grades after help with her French II AP High School Class. Public High School is not designed to be run or taught virtually so having that in person support makes all the difference. Thanks!

Benedicte and I are off to a good start!

Benedicte is absolutely wonderful to work with and I look forward to learning more from her! She is very patient and kind and makes each lesson easy-going and fun.

Knowledgeable and Creative Tutor

Bénédicte was an excellent at assisting me with French lyrics I wrote for a musical composition, making corrections offering suggestions for more poetic phrases that created a better flow of words. She made sure at all times my pronunciation was correct as well as how one would sing/speak connecting words; explained why she used a particular tense or phrase. She was very open to exploring new ideas, straightforward in her approach, and patient with me overall. I highly recommend Bénédicte for French tutoring of any kind!
