Native French Speaker in Washington DC with a passion for French Literature and Philosophy

Methodology

I have given French lessons to students of all ages (6 -45) and levels (beginners -advanced). I am a firm believer that the brain learns better when it is positively stimulated, in other words when the topics studied and discussed in class are interesting to YOU. I like centering my lessons around my students' needs and interests, and turn learning vocabulary and grammar to an enjoyable activity (yes, it is possible) !

Background

I have been giving French lessons for two years, and taught over thirty students to improve their writing, speaking, reading and listening skills in French. Most of my students have made tremendous progress because of my efforts to adapt myself to the students' learning styles, and always make my lessons enjoyable!
