I am willing to teach anyone at any age and fluency level. I base my lessons on what YOU are struggling with and what YOU want to learn so that we both can see the progress that you desire and deserve.
Bonjour à tous! I have been studying French for 10 years, and was a tutor in college with around 15 students over 3 years of work. I've also gotten to spend 2.5 years in Switzerland, more than half of which was spent in the French region. Thanks to me, there are students who learned to enjoy studying French and who achieved higher course grades than if they had no help at all.
Cancellation of a lesson is possible with at least 2 hours notice. In the case of a no-show or failure to cancel the lesson with proper notice, 50% of the hourly rate will be charged for the inconvenience.
Personal Profile: I am a young, hard-working, enthusiastic, and well-traveled individual with a passion for both learning and teaching. I am self-motivated, organized, and work well under pressure. I have excellent time-management, problem-solving, and decision-making skills.
