Bonjour! I am a native French speaker from Montreal, Canada. I received a Bachelors degree and a
Masters degree in French Literature from the University of Quebec at Montreal. I also obtained a Certificate
in education to be able to teach. After college, I traveled a lot (Australia, Japan, Ireland, France) and
taught core curriculum subjects at different private schools in Montreal for 5 years. Since my relocation
in Texas, I have worked as a French Translator for different companies throughout the Dallas area. But I
missed teaching terribly and want to get back to my roots.
French language is my passion and I always worked in French. As a French tutor I am committed to pass
along this passion. With me you will learn how to converse in French in everyday situations (restaurant,
directions, call a cab, greetings etc.) I am a firm believer that to be able to learn or to master a new
language you need to be exposed to the culture, to hear the language and to have no choice than to
speak the language.
In my teaching, I use a lot of cultural tools to expose the students to the French culture (music, videos,
books, magazines, newspapers, etc.) I can teach French at all levels from beginner to advanced and from
conversation skills to written skills (grammar). I am proud to say that my own kids speak French fluently
as well and, in addition, they understand Italian.
In my spare time, I read books in French, Italian and English, go on walks, spend time with my 2 kids and
travel. Every year we go back to Montreal to visit friends and family and also to keep my kids exposed to
the French language. Au revoir et à bientôt!
