FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to first get to know my student and why they are interested in learning french. I like to also introduce the culture as well as the language, by maybe watching a show or music and analyzing it. I light to keep it fun, the best way for a student to learn is to be surrounded by the language and create a habit and not being lectured constantly.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was born and raised in Paris, french is my first language. I've attended french schools my whole life. I now attend an American school in which I take AP honors french classes and tutor French2 and French3 classes.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I price my sessions at 45$ an hour because of the experience that I bring and the fact that french is my first language. However I am always open to discuss pricing if you really don't feel comfortable.


How did you get started teaching?

I first started off by helping my younger siblings as french wasn't their first language who attend a french school. I now attend an American school in which I take AP honors french classes and tutor French2 and French3 classes. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with younger students ranging from 1st grade to 5th. I have also worked with high school students who take french as their language.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently helped a family friend plan a trip to the south of france. I helped plan an itinerary and give them advice on places to see, as well as help them practice speaking french. It was so much fun being able to help plan and introduce my culture to them.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone that you relate to and makes you feel comfortable. You need to find a tutor/teacher that understands the level you are on and understands how to help you. As I've started teaching my high school students, I've realised that they listen to me more than their teacher because I understand them and I bring this aspect of relatableness. No student wants to be lectured.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do I need my teacher to do in order to progress?
