Polyglot with multi-national background offering French lessons in Monterey and surrounding areas.

Methodology

I like to get to know my students to understand what teaching method(s) fits their personality and needs. I have worked with children ages 3-12, as well as high-school and college students. I have worked as a teaching assistant at the University of San Francisco and also worked with adults who needed to learn/practice French for their work or pleasure.

Background

I am of Italian nationality, but originally also part French and Ethiopian. I attended a French school from the age of 3 to 16, graduated high school with a Baccalaureate degree in Economics and went to Law School in Toulouse, France. Both my parents were French and Italian teachers and I have been giving French/Italian lessons for as long as I can remember. I have been working in Business Immigration for the last 4 years so I haven't had time to teach and I am excited to dust off my old French books.
