French native with linguistics, phonetics and literature expertise offers lessons in Trenton and Belleville area

Methodology

I like to adapt my lessons to the person I teach. I consider her needs, background and previous knowledge.

For me, it is important to fing logic in what we learn, so I put great attention into explaining that logic. I have studied the French language History. So, when needed, I can explain why some words are written the way they are. It makes it easier to learn and to remember.

Background

I was born in Quebec where I lived in French for more than 30 years. I taught French as a first or second language for more than 12 years. I got most of my experience teaching teenagers and adults, but I also like to teach kids.

I have two bachelor's degrees, the first in literature and the other in education. I am also working on a master's degree in literature (research and creative writing).

I am passionate about language, writing, structures and learning.
