French teacher with 10 years' experience giving conversation lessons in DC area

Methodology

My method is to get students speaking their second language as accurately, confidently, and quickly as possible. I base my courses on conversational skills as well as pronunciation to sound and feel as fluent as native speaker. I approach each topic by incorporating my students' interests and goals into lessons that are directly applicable to practical, real-world situations.

Background

Bonjour ! Je m'appelle Madeleine, je suis une professeur de sujets variés depuis dix ans. Munie d'un diplÎme en linguistique, j'enseigne le français actuellement aux enfants et aux adultes de tous niveaux depuis deux ans. Mes étudiants apprennent à perfectionner l'accent, développer leurs compétences en conversation, améliorer les notes, mémoriser le vocabulaire et faire des liens culturels dans leur nouvelle langue.
