I am currently a Master's film student at New York University. I am a native of France and am excited to offer French tutoring in New York. I have experience teaching French Language for the past three years and have helped individuals tackle the issue of learning this new language by choosing angles like newspaper articles in French to keep my students interested in the course. My students would say that my main qualities are my easiness and my patience, as well as my ability to find playful exercises to find new ways to help students familiarize themselves with French. I welcome beginners, intermediate and advanced participants. I consider myself proficient in all aspects: grammar, syntax, oral pronunciation, etc. Through various exercises and lessons centered around French lifestyle, history and culture; I can help one learn the French language. Outside of academia I enjoy the cinema and visiting museums.
