I was born in Paris, France. As a native, I have been tutoring French to children and adults for many years. Ma specialité : I write stories, most of them with a humorous twist and ending. I use those stories to reinforce a grammar theme and make it more enjoyable. I am glad to share them with you.
I always try to teach French in a fun way. I may use songs, have students sing, dance, or play a theater script. I use many diverse resources and one of them is fun stories that I write: fun as opposed to boring stories which make too many students drop French. Fun but with structure : my students always know what they are studying, why, where they are in terms of level and how they can improve.
When one tutors one to one or small groups, there is nobody to give you awards, except your own clients: My clients love me and I am proud to be one of the best French tutor in my area. In fact, I have to refuse students all the time due to my tight schedule ! Many language organisations around my area (such as the Alliance Francophone and others) use my services.
I have been teaching French in France and in the States for the last 15 years.
