French and English Instructor

I have been teaching English and French for 5 years now. I have a Bachelor's from La Sorbonne and a Certificate to Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).

I specialize with beginners who want to learn the language but have no clue where to begin. I start off with the basic, like pronunciation and vocabulary, to familiarize students with the language, to make it seem less "alien".

From there, we advance to grammar and sentence structure to encourage students to start speaking confidently and even encourage mistakes. Usually at this point, my students will have a good push to continue to the intermediate level on their own.

I am very happy to have helped many students and in turn I got to meet many interesting people from all corners of the world.

Personally, I am very fascinated with languages and my goal is to be fluent in 5 (at least).
