✿ ━━━━━━━━━━━ ABOUT ME ━━━━━━━━━━━━ ✿
➔ 100% French Canadian (mother tongue) from Quebec
(I grew up and graduated in Quebec City)
➔ Still living in Quebec City
(Only French spoken here)
➔ I also speak English, Spanish and Portuguese fluently. But during the lessons I speak only in French (unless you need/ask otherwise).

➔ 35 years old woman
(I look younger; I think it makes it even easier for me to connect with kids)
➔ I was always one of the top students in school. I was particularly good in French.
➔ In addition to these languages mentioned above, I have studied several other languages on my own (and still do) such as Italian, German, Arabic, Russian and Japanese.
➔ Languages are a great passion for me. I can't find the words that would satisfy me to express how languages stimulate and fascinate me. For me, the opening to the world that they bring is pure magic.

✿ ━━━━━━━━━━━ HOW I DO ━━━━━━━━━━━━ ✿
I give as much as I can for the hour(s) we spend together. I don't waste time doing something that you could have done on your own (unless you want/need it that way). For example, I'm not the type to ask you to read a text in your head during our meeting while I do nothing, or to do somewhat random and questionably effective notebook activities as they do too often in school in my opinion. I teach the more content possible so the time passed together worth it. I can teach very intensively if wanted. Actually, it is the way I usually prefer because it makes me feel like I'm giving you more for your money and because it is the kind of tutoring that I would love to get myself. But of course I can do it as intense (or mild) as you like!
I have tutored many adults and babysat / tutored a lot of children of really all ages and from many nationalities. Kids like me. I adapt to the child. I have more interactive resources for them (and for my adult clients as well ;-) and we occasionally play various games ''just for fun'' for a few minutes when I feel it will be beneficial for our bond and/or for their motivation, and thus promote continuity of optimal learning.
You are welcome and even encouraged to tell me the way you prefer / want / need the tutoring. Everybody is different and I know how it feels when someone doesn't teach us the way we want or need to be taught. So do not hesitate to tell me what exactly you are looking for so that I can adapt my teaching. I'll let you know if I don't think I'm right for you.
By the way, you don't have to put yourself together for our meetings. Feel free to stay in your pyjama if you want. ;-) (This endless pandemic also has its benefits, let's enjoy them. hehe)

Perfect! Thanks to Émilie I have now become bilingual. She is a well organized tutor with a vast array of learning exercises and strategies to improve your ability in French no matter what level you are. She is also very flexible with her approach to teaching to prioritize your goals: pronunciation, communication, grammer, listening, or reading. Absolutely have Émilie as your tutor if you want to take learning a language to the next level.
Perfect! Émilie is great at individualising her sessions and giving constructive feedback! Highly recommend her as a tutor :)
Perfect! Emi does a great job to understand my individual needs for why and how I want to learn french.
Perfect! Émilie is the best language teacher I’ve ever had!
With Émi I am fully in charge of the pace of learning and the style of lessons I want to have (only speaking). Émi adapts to my needs, she is kind, non-judgmental and doesn’t put pressure at all. The lessons feel like if I was having a coffee with a friend: they are funny and relaxed. Learning a new language it’s always difficult but with Émi it feels only playful.
Perfect! Very good with correcting during conversations in ways to help you understand
Perfect! Extremely helpful! I appreciated the feedback, and the exercises were both challenging and interesting.
Perfect! Émilie is a great teacher. Her style is both humorous and effective, and she is a good listener, very responsive. I am learning the real Québécois !
Excellent! She was helping me to get through the language barrier and figuring out differences between Quebec and traditional French. I think my speech has drastically improved. Her strengths are: comfortable to be around and ensuring correctness.
Perfect! Emilie is a great teacher who is also friendly, and fun. She can tailor the lessons to your specific needs.
Perfect! Émilie is very communicative, accommodating, and easy to talk to so you feel comfortable trying and making mistakes while learning. She understands what you’re looking for and shares her good advice without forcing you to follow a specific method. Im always looking forward to the next session. I highly recommend Émilie as a French tutor!
Perfect! Emilie really connected with my daughter which made her want to continue to learn. Emilie put her at ease and took the time to get to know her and evaluate her needs and how to best support my daughter's learning. This is super important as not every child responds to the same kind of teaching philosophy. Thanks Emilie!
Perfect! She is very patient and understanding with her student's needs. Definitely recommend her for improving your french level!
Perfect! Émilie is very patient with students and adjust her teaching style accordingly.
Perfect! Émilie teaches well and able to connect with children. She is patient and kind. She is patient to teach all tenses of verbs to a 7 year old child, easily. She is able to handle my child to read well in French and really remarkably able to make her understand French verbs tenses. My daughter could speak and read well in French. Thanks Emilie. I would recommend anyone to give a try learning French with Emilie.
- See the response Émilie : Ashviineey est une adorable petite fille de 7 ans débordante d'énergie positive et d'intelligence. J'ai le plaisir de tutorer à distance (elle vit à Toronto) ce petit rayon de soleil régulièrement la semaine depuis maintenant 10 mois et j'ai été ravie d'apprendre il y a quelque temps que nous allions finalement poursuivre nos rencontres à long terme.
Je trouve cela fascinant de la voir progresser et prendre en maturité au fil du temps. Elle a une capacité de concentration et d'apprentissage remarquable. Elle est d'ailleurs grandement en avance sur son âge et sur le programme scolaire. Elle se débrouille par ailleurs très bien avec son ordinateur et Internet.
Tel que souhaité, nous pratiquons beaucoup la conjugaison des verbes à tous les temps et nous faisons beaucoup de compréhension de lecture (ce qui implique également au passage l'apprentissage de nombreux nouveaux mots de vocabulaire ainsi que le perfectionnement de la prononciation lorsque nécessaire).
Elle parle et lit très bien; elle prononce les mots avec fluidité et justesse (elle arrive d'ailleurs à reproduire impeccablement les sons qu'elle entend) et elle semble avoir saisi instinctivement le rythme et l'intonation de la langue française.
Si elle ne connaît pas un mot ou ne comprend pas quelque chose, elle le dit. Elle est curieuse et elle aime apprendre, surtout quand c'est en s'amusant. J'adore voir son visage s'illuminer lorsque quelque chose capte son intérêt et/ou l'amuse particulièrement, comme lorsqu'elle réalise que la phrase que je viens de lui donner en exemple est (volontairement) complètement loufoque.
Enjouée, souriante, mignonne, gentille, douce, douée... tant de qualités dans ce petit être! ;-) Elle n'aura pas de mal à se faire des amis ni à avancer dans la vie!
Ashviineey est en outre une fillette épanouie, heureuse et équilibrée. Cela se voit que ses parents prennent bien soin d'elle. Sa mère Josephiine est une maman aimante et dévouée. Outillée de ses propres connaissances du français et d'une gamme de matériel pédagogique, elle accompagne Ashviineey dans son apprentissage. Elle se fait discrète lors des séances, tout en étant toujours là en cas de petit pépin technique ou autre. Elle est toujours fiable, que ce soit pour l'horaire, les paiements, ou les communications avec moi.
Perfect! I was looking for a tutor to help me with my conversational skills, specifically with Quebecois French, and Émilie surpassed my expectations. I saw a lot of improvement in my comprehension in a short time working together. I highly recommend Émilie to anyone looking to improve their French.
Perfect! Émilie is a fantastic tutor and she is just what I was looking for!
I took French immersion in school a number of years ago but my French was pretty rusty and I wanted to become more comfortable using French at work. I have taken lots of French courses as an adult but didn't find that I was getting better at understanding others and being understood in real life. You really can't beat one on one practice and if you want to improve your French for everyday life/work - I highly recommend Émilie! Don't waste your time and money on a group course because there's not a lot of time for each student to practice speaking in a classroom setting, the lessons are very grammar focused and a lot of times the teacher is from France, where the vocabulary is very different from what's commonly used in Canada (both in a casual setting and at work).
Émilie has hugely helped me to understand French in Canada and I can't say enough good things about her. If you're going to spend time learning French, you want the result to be that you are able to communicate comfortably (not just conjugate verbs on a page) and you want it to be fun so you stick with it and it doesn't feel like a chore. Émilie has a great sense of humour and I always look forward to our weekly lessons! Like they say, if you don't use it, you lose it and I feel very lucky that I found Émilie - I finally feel like my French is improving and I'm much more comfortable speaking French. I can't recommend her enough.
- See the response Émilie : Katie est une femme des Maritimes fort sympathique et motivée. Nos rencontres virtuelles hebdomadaires sont un heureux mélange de moments de grande concentration et de rires. C'est toujours intéressant et très amusant de converser avec elle. :-)
Elle connaissait déjà bien le français lorsqu'elle m'a contactée il y a 9 mois mais elle souhaitait, d'une part, mieux comprendre ses collègues québécois, et d'autre part, mieux s'exprimer en français, de sorte que ces derniers n'aient plus l'impression de devoir parfois changer leur façon de parler afin de s'assurer qu'elle comprenne bien.
Après avoir fait un tour d'horizon des particularités du dialecte québécois, nous nous sommes concentrées sur la prononciation et surtout l'intonation française, dans le but d'atténuer son accent anglophone. J'ai été impressionnée par la rapidité de ses progrès à ce sujet lors de ses lectures à voix haute. Je débordais d'enthousiasme, de fierté et d'émerveillement chaque fois que, même en écoutant avec la plus grande des attentions ce qu'elle disait, je ne trouvais aucune trace d'accent qui trahirait son origine anglophone.
Nous nous sommes ensuite affairées à transposer ces nouvelles aptitudes dans la communication orale spontanée, à corriger les quelques fautes de français restantes et à continuer d'enrichir son vocabulaire québécois.
Dernièrement, nous faisons principalement de la conversation libre. Cela fait déjà un bon bout de temps que je lui parle comme je parle dans ma vie francophone de tous les jours (sans modifier ni mon français, ni mon québécois ;-) et ce, avec la confiance qu'elle me suit. Il y a bien sûr de petits moments de doutes ou d'incompréhension mais ceux-ci se font rares et ne viennent aucunement compromettre la fluidité de nos conversations.
Le fait que je puisse rester spontanée facilite grandement nos échanges et laisse davantage place aux nuances, à la profondeur et/ou à l'humour (parfois un luxe qu'on ne se permet pas lorsqu'on se bute à des limitations linguistiques), ce qui a tôt fait de favoriser la proximité et la complicité entre nous.
Il est certain qu'il en sera de même avec ses collègues québécois, que ce soit lors des échanges professionnels ou lors des discussions informelles à l'heure des pauses. (Vu les circonstances exceptionnelles actuelles, Katie n'a malheureusement pas encore vraiment eu l'occasion de reparler à ses collègues... Mais la surprise n'en sera que plus grande au retour! J'imagine déjà la tête qu'ils feront à l'entendre parler comme ça « du jour au lendemain » ! :-)

Faz 4 anos que vivo em Quebec e senti a necessidade de melhorar minha pronúncia de algumas palavras e sons. Fiz aulas específicas de fonética com a Émilie, ela é incrivelmente atenciosa, fortemente capaz e muito hábil, não medindo esforços em ajudar seus alunos a alcançarem seus objetivos. Só tenho a agradecer a todo trabalho, lições e conteúdo fornecido que foram essenciais para melhorar meus conhecimentos em francês.
以前我也在其他的机构上过一些法语课， 但是他们都没有提供私人定制版的课程。对于我来说， 我的目标是短期内恢复以及提高我的法语水平从而通过考试。 Émilie在很短的时间内就帮我回顾了法语的语法知识。
It was an occasional chance that I went on the website to randomly search French tutor and I saw her name. Honestly it may be the best decision I made this year to have her as my French tutor for OQLF exam preparation.
I took some French courses in the past years in different institutions (i.e. university courses with credit, government subsidized French course and immigration courses in some language schools). But none of them gave a personalized study plan.
Since I don’t have chance to practise French in daily life, my French level decreased to almost 0, not even talking about passing a French exam in the specific professional area. Émilie helped me to refresh all of the grammar I learnt before in a very short period. She’s very very patient and kept pointing out the errors I made during our conversation (even though I kept making the same error). But I think I’ll never forget to add “de” between “c’est facile” and the verb. :)
She also corrected the vocabulary to ensure I use more accurate words in the sentences. It’s very important especially for Anglophone as we always want to use an English word in the French conversation and think it’s the appropriate one.
In addition, she’s always helpful even after the class. I appreciate the extra time she put in to correct my writings before class.
She also did a mock exam right before the exam date which I believe is the key factor contributing to the final success.
All is to say, I really appreciate her help and I would recommend her to my friends who need to improve their French.
Émilie is a kind and helpful teacher. She will work with you to achieve your specific goals and makes learning fun with her conversation skills and sense of humour.
Émilie was very quick in getting back to my request, which is something I value. She is funny, patient, and made me feel comfortable speaking French. She is also very resourceful when it comes to teaching the particularities of Québécois. Definitely recommended!
Language learning is always hard. I do not know how many times I have tried learning a language and given up.
Émilie is one of the most patient instructors I have come across. She has an excellent command of many languages, thus extremely helpful in learning a new language. Her teaching methods are exceptional as she adjusts the course based on your learning capabilities.
I would say she is one of the best instructors I have ever had!!
Keep up the great work!!
A veces encontrar un profesor que se adapte a lo que buscas y que sobre todo, que use referencias/herramientas de acuerdo al idioma que hablas y el que quieres practicar; no es una tarea fácil.
Por ello, te recomiendo a Émilie!
Durante las sesiones que tomé con ella, puede ver con claridad lo que me estaba haciendo falta y lo que necesitaba mejorar. También, me divertí un montón al entender expresiones quebequenses que siempre escuchaba pero no entendía.
Muchas gracias profe por lo aprendido !
Émilie m'a beaucoup aidé à améliorer mon français écrit et elle fait des merveilles pour transformer les textes normaux en phrases littéraires qui sont un charme pour les oreilles. De plus, elle m'a appris l'espagnol rapidement avant mon voyage au Nicaragua (je n'avais aucune notion de cette langue et j'ai pu me débrouiller dans mon voyage de 2 mois).
Hace 3 meses que hago clases con Émilie y estoy disfrutando mucho. Las clases son muy entretenidas y me están permitiendo recuperar mi francés y ganar seguridad a la hora de expresarme tanto a nivel oral como escrito. Émilie es muy flexible y se adapta a las necesidades e intereses; además comparte muchos materiales complementarios y sugerencias para poder ir avanzando más allá de la clase. Si tenéis ganas de aprender francés o consolidar vuestro nivel, sin duda las clases con Émilie son una buena forma de avanzar en la comprensión y el uso de la lengua francesa.
Émilie a été mon professeur d'espagnol durant quelques mois.
J'ai adoré son dynamisme et sa créativité dans la façon d'enseigner.
Elle est respectueuse, simple et amicale.
J'ai aimé la variété des exercices favorisant mon apprentissage.
Je vous la recommande sans hésitation.
We moved from Alberta and enrolled our son in a bilingual elementary school. We faced a challenge as our son's French level was less than his classmates in grade 3. He required extra assistance privately. We did consider many private tutors. Émilie engaged with our son in multiple weekly lessons virtually. She followed up with his school curriculum and taught our son grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and more. Every month, we were delighted to see our son enjoying learning the French language more as Émilie worked to decrease his frustrations. Now, we hope to continue with her so that he can really excel at learning French. We highly recommend Émilie if you are seeking a private tutor to teach your kids the French language. My son started capturing the original French accent which is nice to have. Émilie is reliable, punctual, patient with children, and has a plan that you can rely on. We were very pleased to know her and would highly recommend her services.
أنسة للفرنسي ممتازة تتابع الطفل باهتمام بدون أن يشعر الطالب بضغط الدراسة. ننصح بها لأولادكم إذا كانوا بحاجة لدروس خصوصية باللغة الفرنسية
Emilie taught my daughter (French tutoring) in grade 6. She taught her online and we were very happy with her. Emilie is knowledgeable, friendly and has a great personality. My daughter looked forward to her tutoring. She was easy to work with so that we could focus on my daughters areas that needed improvement. She also helped with homework and preparation for tests. I would definitely recommend her.
I live in Hamilton, and I am in first year at McMaster University. It was exam season, and I was studying mostly for Chemistry and Math. After I finished the exams, I had my French exam in a few days, and I really wasn't ready for it. I asked many tutors online for help, and they all said that it was too ''last minute'', she was the only tutor to accept to help me, she was a real life saver. In the end, I got a really good mark, and I'm very happy with the result. I recommend her to anyone who needs help with French, she's really great. Thanks again Émilie!!!
Émilie is such a great French teacher! As a student who barely knows anything in French, I was able to learn so much with Émilie. I liked every lesson with her and I was always looking forwards it! She was able to adapt to my learning style and throughout the class, she makes all the complicated things so easy to understand. Émilie is very understanding, patient, responsible, and cares about your improvement, and she is just such a lovely person who is so encouraging and I honestly felt much more confident about learning French and my skills when I met Émilie! I highly suggest her!
Eu sou um usuário de São Paulo - Brasil e estou estudando francês com a professora Émilie há mais de 3 meses.
Já posso dizer que é uma professora excelente. Ela prepara aulas muito dinâmicas e divertidas. O tempo voa!
É muito profissional, atenciosa, paciente, boa de papo e motivadora.
Em pouco tempo, já aprendi muito francês e também sobre cultura, política e sociedade do Quebec. Descobri muitas séries, vídeos e sites legais da província.
Além do francês, ela domina o inglês e o português, o que ajuda nas explicações. Ela é muito precisa nas correções, o que ajuda a errar cada vez menos.
I had to practice my French for a last minute interview so I randomly reached out to Emilie without expecting much. However, it was an extremely pleasant experience! She's very down to earth and extremely patient, I actually had fun while learning. I had the sense that she immediately understood where I needed to improve and tailored all my courses with her in a way that was so beneficial for my interview and for employment in general. I would strongly recommend her as a french tutor if you're looking to learn the language or become fluent. As a matter of fact, I will definitely be returning to her for more practice in the future!

1)When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
I have loved languages since I was a little girl. Throughout my school career, I was always among the best students in French (first language). I also learned several other languages. I am passionate about it! And I love to share this enthusiasm and my tips with others!
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Learning a language gives you access to so many things! I find it fascinating to go from "I hear sounds that make no sense to me" to "I hear statements, how can I not understand them?
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
I love improving my students' lives through their progress in French. I love to feel their satisfaction at those little magical moments during the learning process when they, for example, make an important discovery, finally understand something they never managed to understand before, adopt a little mnemonic trick I give them, etc.
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
I have probably been influenced by all of my experiences with the many teachers I have had but there is no one in particular that stands out to me... In fact, I would say that what has influenced my teaching the most is doing it differently than the methodology of school or group classes. I also draw on my personal experience of (mostly self-taught) language learning.
What are your keys to success?
My multiple experiences and skills developed through time, I love what I do, I have the success of my students at heart, I want to give as much of myself as possible in the time given, I adapt to the needs / preferences / moods / personalities of each person...
