I provide French lessons for small groups or private individual lessons at my place, at yours, or in School facilities. I teach French to children from PK4 to 12th Grade, or to adults willing to reinforce their skills or discover how wonderful is the language of Voltaire .
I prepare children to take the DELF exam http://www.ciep.fr/en/delf-dalf, help French students in American schools who need to catch up with the French curriculum, and/or for those who follow the French CNED program.
I define my teaching philosophy as something actually simple but extremely efficient and powerful: Learning capacity is decoupled tenfold when we truly love what we have to learn. “‘What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child” is my motto, combined with the constant research of the optimum between three fundamental pillars of any good education:
- A rigorous academy: Writing, reading, pronunciation, conversations, going deep in grammar concepts and rich vocabulary.
- Fun: Entertaining and interactive activities, songs, art crafts, games, Spelling Bee contest…
- Culture: Art and literature, museum visits, but also politeness, courtesy, elegance, and of course, healthy food and French cooking…
Tuition fees: For small groups, the cost is 50$ per hour per person, $80 per hour for private lessons at my place or at school, and $100 at your place. This includes preparation of the classes, pedagogic materials, exercise books for year 2 to year 6, and grading of homework.
