French online classes given by a McGill undergraduate with experiences tutoring both kids and young adults
- By webcam
Carla is one of our best tutors. High-quality profile and excellent qualifications, organised and responsive to lesson requests, appreciated by their students!
-Start the class with some questions that you may have (cultural habits, vocabulary, French places to visit in Montréal etc..)+ with conversational basics (Greetings, how are you, talk about the weather and what you did the day before)
-A different conversation each class (based on a topic you’d like to work on)
-List of vocabulary I’d have created before the beginning of class and completed at the end of the conversation, followed by a grammar lesson.
-Test your written skills by giving you a short “essay” question based on the conversation we had last session, to use the vocabulary and grammar you learnt .
-Something I really like to do is to use Art (paintings, videos, movie extracts, songs) to teach French. How can I do this?
For instance, by making you listen to a song and play “fill in the blanks” or make you brainstorm the main ideas you got from it.
-End the session by saying what you liked about the class and what you wish could be improved or added.
-I’d have to assess how much of a beginner you are … Do you know the alphabet or sounds such as elle/eille/ette etc...?
If not, we’ll start from here, by learning the alphabet with a song (makes it easier to remember), work on sounds with flashcards, greetings, etc…
-“Homework”: Learn the vocabulary list (pronunciation, how to write it, meaning(s) of the words)+ Learn something new about French speaking countries or about the language itself+ Check out the song/movie extract or article I’d have sent you+ Find a conversation topic.

Hi everyone, my name is Carla, I am currently majoring in Environment and minoring in Political Science at McGill University. I took a gap year back in 2017 and was an Aupair/ tutor for 10 months in London.
I have been giving private lessons for a year now, to fourteen students between the age of 6 to 27.
Perfect! My daughter enjoyed the French lessons with Carla and I am very happy with the progress my daughter has made at school thanks to Carla's help. Great tutor! Strongly recommended!
Perfect! Carla is a fabulous teacher. She is meticulous and diligent, yet able to maintain the focus and excitement of an 8-year-old, which is a non-trivial task (to say the least). I highly recommend Carla!
Perfect! Carla is an incredible teacher. Every week my daughter looks forward to meeting with her, and by the time her lesson with Carla is finished, she's more energized than when she started. Carla makes learning fun and our daughter's French continues to improve. Carla is professional, thoughtful, and kind, and we're grateful for her help!
Perfect! Our daughter liked her. She can communicate with her with ease.
Perfect! Carla is the perfect mix of professional and fun. She is a very effective teacher and I highly recommend her services!
Perfect! Excellent communicator, patient and tailors teaching experience to the student's needs
Perfect! My 12 year old daughter had a great first lesson with Carla. She was supportive and made my daughter laugh. They reviewed a test my daughter wasn't satisfied with and discussed a lesson plan going forward. It is a great fit!

Carla is really diligent and compassionate with her students. She comes to class prepared, engages students with fun activities and exercises appropriate to the student's language level. Carla is very knowledgeable, a native french speaker, and very attentive to her students' needs. She often asks students what they would like to work on so as to improve their weaknesses and build on their strengths. I strongly recommend taking french lessons with Carla!
Carla est calme et réfléchis. Le Français est sa langue natale, elle sera vous expliquer toutes les complexités de cette langue sans vous mettre de pression ! Je recommande fortement :)
