French native teacher (bilingual) with a master's in Education and Language didactics

Methodology

Après avoir fait un bilan de la situation avec l'élève en question, je mets en place la méthode la plus adaptée pour le faire progresser. Je fais du tutorat depuis maintenant 4 ans. Mon approche et ma méthode est différente selon l'élève, elle s'adapte souvent à la personnalité de l'élève. Mon but est tout d'abord de leur faire aimer cette matière.

I always begin with an evalution, a test to measure the situation with the student. After that I put in place the most suitable method to make him progress. I have been tutoring for 4 years now. My approach and my method are different according to the student, it often adapts to the personality of the student. My goal is first of all to make them love this subject.

Super Prof

I met Maria through some mutual friends and she came across as a warm, lively and smart person. As someone who wanted to learn French, I instantly asked her if she would teach me the language and she was kind enough to say yes. Maria's style of teaching is unique as she is patient and quick to understand her student's grasping ability. She was extremely patient with me and played fun games to make concepts clear. Besides, just classroom learning, she encourages her students to watch French movies and read books. I remember watching a great French movie, Nothing to Hide, with her which definitely did make French more interesting for me. After watching the film we had a long conversation not just about the language, but about French culture and food. I am of the opinion that a language is so closely associated with the culture and Maria definitely educates her students about the cultural elements of France.
I would definitely recommend Maria to anyone who wants to learn French even from scratch. She is an amazing person and that makes her a wonderful teacher! She really knows how to make a language fun to learn!

Maria is a passionate, dynamic and creative teacher. She has wonderful ideas for interactive activities and games to practice langage in a fun way. We studied together in Paris, to get our Masters degree in education, so I had the opportunity to see her in a classroom as well as on one-to-one interactions and she always impressed me with her ideas and enthusiasm.

Maria is a very creative and reliable teacher. She is patient, kind and takes time to explain and present the French language in a creative and interactive way. She will give you the opportunity to learn French with a good methodology.

Ms. Maria used to teach me French at Alliance Francaise (Karachi). She is a thorough professional with great communication skills. She is patient and cares for her students. Due to her teaching style and involvement it is obvious that she is passionate about it.

Maria is a phenomenal teacher who knows exactly how to run a class for non-native speakers of French. And she does so while you are having fun and playing games, never realizing that you’ve just acquired an additional link in the structure of the language.

She is young, dynamic, knowledgeable, informative, helpful and possessed of that rare quality that makes for a great teacher: she can make you fall in love with your subject! Maria uses a game-based approach to teaching you French with help from authentic documents and course books. This enables her students to speak the language faster and allows them to assimilate concepts easily and, in a stress free environment.

Maria has been working for us for the past three years at the Alliance française de Karachi and we are extremely privileged that she is a part of our team. While in Karachi, Maria gave group classes and private classes to students of all age groups. Upon her return to France, she continued to work online with us. Her students both past and present are very fond of her and request for her each time there is a semester change or at the end of their private classes.

I was lucky enough to have Maria as my French teacher back in 2018. Out of all the tutors I've had over the years, Maria is by far the best. Her classes are always effective, fun and engaging. She is great at explaining everything and is very patient. I couldn't have done so well in my Delf exam without her. If you really want to learn the language and are looking for someone to help you out Maria is the one.

Maria's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Maria — When I finished High school I go my first student that I tutored for 3 years. She was 3 years Younger than me. In France, you have 3 fields in high school. You have to choose one at the end of your first year. S( sciences), ES (Economy) and L (literature). She wanted to get in the L field but she wasn't good at languages which is really important in that field. After our first year of tuitions she ended up getting in that field and I remember being very happy. I knew I loved that feeling of being able to help someone to reach their goals. Teaching gives me that constant feeling.
QUESTION 02 | 05
2) What makes you passionate about your subject?
Maria — I am a Native French speaker and I am always intrigued when a non francophone wants to learn french as it is such a complex language. It's interesting to know what difficulties other people go through speaking your language and I like thinking about how I can possibly help them overcome those difficulties. Moreover I live in Canada now and I do miss speaking french on daily basis. This is also why I chose to be a french teacher so I can always speak french no matter which part of the world I end up in. As I say in french, « l'enseignement est une passion qui me permet de transmettre et de m'instruire perpétuellement »
QUESTION 03 | 05
3) What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Maria — I am a french teacher and I generally have a class with 15-20 students in front of me. What I like about tutoring is how you can focus on one person at a time. You get a real interaction with your student and, you are truly able to help them. I would say my approach makes me a « superprof ». Indeed, I use a game-based approach to teaching French with help from authentic documents and course books. This enables my students to speak the language faster and allows them to assimilate concepts easily and, in a stress free environment.
QUESTION 04 | 05
4) Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
Maria — I do actually. One of my professor when I was doing my master's degree truly inspired. She actually inspired all of us. She had a key word « la bienveillance » you could trasnlate it by kindness of goodwill. She was against the entire grading system but she would still have to give us grade for the master. So she had a rule she would give us all the assignments at the beginning of the year and would give us until the last day to hand it over. We could send her the assignments as many times as we wanted to get the best grade possible which was 20/20. She would give us feedback and send back the assignment until we were satisfied with our grade. Her real aim was to motivate us. That way both students and the professor were satisfied. Us because we got the best grade possible and her because we actually learnt Something by sending the assignment multiple times.
QUESTION 05 | 05
5) What are your keys to success?
Maria — To start with, I would say don't procasinate. Do the most you can now so later you can chill and enjoy. If you have dreams and goals in mind just go for them, don't be scared of failure because failure is part of the journey and it helps you understanding your mistakes. You also need them so you can truly enjoy success when it comes to you.
