About Me

I am a long-time Francophile who studied French Language and Literature for a total of five years at University. In that time, I received two scholarships for further study in Tahiti and New Caledonia, and subsequently went on to study post-grad Communications and Public Relations. After 20 years of working in the corporate world, I have decided to circle back to my first love - la langue française. Although not my native tongue, I have a colloquial French accent, and understand perfectly the challenges of shifting your thinking from English into French. I teach with humour, empathy and understanding which make the journey to fluency more enjoyable - and quicker, as a result.

Education

Massey University, New Zealand - Bachelor of Arts (French Language & Literature): First Class Honours (1996)

Massey University, New Zealand - Certificate in Public Relations & Communications (1997)

Experience / Qualifications

- Eight years working in PR agencies (corporate communications and issues management, including for the French team participating in the 2003 America's Cup in NZ)
- Seven years as trans-Tasman Group Brand & Communications Manager for a government-owned technology company
- Seven years running my own communications consultancy.
- 12 months teaching English as a second language (Nouvelle-Caledonie)

Spanish for Speakers of other Languages (all levels)
Spanish is the second language in terms of the number of native speakers, just behind Mandarin Chinese. It is also the mother tongue for twenty nationalities in America, Europe, and Africa. It is also quite similar to Italian or Portuguese, so it might help you to reach some understanding of those languages. I´ve been studying English and French at school for a number of years, so I can perfectly get on students´ shoes.

Offers French courses for adults or adolescents ONLINE COURSES / Offers French courses for adults or teenagers / ONLINE COURSES
Who ? I am 49 years old and have been a French teacher for 27 years in French secondary education in Belgium. For three years now, I have decided to follow the entrepreneurial path by offering freelance courses. With hindsight today, I regret not having done so earlier as the exchange with new people, young and old, French-speaking or not, is particularly enriching. What? I offer French or FLE courses based on multiple sources and I renew them regularly because it is important to be in adequacy with the current society. Or ? I go to the learner's home where we decide to do the course online. When? I work at the Belgian-Luxembourg border and I go to Luxembourg 4 to 5 times a week, usually at the beginning or end of the afternoon. I am also available on weekends. Who?

French private lessons: Language and communication [ONLINE]
I am a French teacher, an academician. I have been teaching French, language and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. I explain my classes in French, in Arabic or in Spanish, according to your choice. During the session I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can speak fluently over time and avoid grammatical gaps. And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our accompaniment and increase your level.

Alejandro & Eléa
Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.

Italian and french lessons for Children and adults.
Hello everyone ! Researcher at the University of Nice and in the process of completing my doctorate in international relations, I offer French and Italian courses. The objective is naturally to reach the linguistic level sought by the pupil for professional reasons or simply for leisure. Through activities and work using audio, video or written supports, students will be able to develop both their written and oral comprehension skills. I can completely adapt my lessons according to the requests and preferences of the pupils, by orienting the lessons on subjects which interest them particularly without obviously ignoring the basics. Do not hesitate to contact me !

Phillip
Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

Private lessons of French, grammar and English for middle and high school students
Hello, I am a student who is heading for teaching competitions. I want to give Grammar, English and French lessons to middle school or high school students in difficulty, who need academic support. I am in Montreal, I can give face-to-face lessons in this city only. I can also give private lessons at a distance, if the student does not mind. Note that there is a six hour difference between Quebec and Europe. My lessons will be based on the student's expectations. I will follow his schedule closely so that he understands his course well and does not feel in difficulty when he is in class. These private lessons can be accompanied by homework help and a deepening of the subjects covered in class. I listen to the student and the family to understand the specific needs of each.
