Hi there, welcome! In order to take this class, you want to have at least some basics of French (even if they are somewhat rusty!). I work with many levels, just not beginners.
Please note that my method is highly intuitive and based on empathy, individualization and development: from one session to the next, I expand on what the student learned and come back to the areas that need more practice. We tackle the subjects and grammar points that are the most pressing, and grow organically from there. Classes are on Skype/Zoom, and I write all the words and expressions in the chat so you have notes to refer back to.
Please note also: classes are strictly conversational and I do not give homework, so if you need exercises or academic content, another teacher might be more suitable. I do this because this is how I loved to learn English the most: through conversation and asking questions. It is also very important to me that you have fun and speak about the subjects that matter most to you, because this is how our brains are wired to learn efficiently.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!

Perfect! Brune is an excellent, bright, and enthusiastic teacher. I had a lot of interesting topics to talk about with her to improve my speaking skills. I hope I can continue learning from her.
Ali is a driven, kind and interesting person, with a great foundation of French to work from. It is a pleasure talking to him in a teaching setting, and I highly recommend him as a student!
Perfect! Brune is very patient and kind. I hadn't spoke French in a few years and she really let me speak and regain my confidence. She was also very happy to offer corrections and advice on how to phrase things. I feel great starting my new job knowing that I'll be able to communicate with clients. Brune is an excellent tutor.
Aaron is a great student to interact with. His level of French was already very good, but he needed to dust it off before starting a new job. He is curious, focused and interesting, I highly recommend Aaron!
Perfect! Brune est très gentille et donne beaucoup de pratique au lieu de seulement de la théorie.
Ai Li is an absolute delight to work with. She is passionate, focused and enthusiastic. I highly recommend Ai Li as a student!
Perfect! Brune is a great French tutor! She gives lots of feedback and sends the corrections electronically as well which is really helpful for studying. She is always sure to plan the session around what needs to be practiced. Brune gives thorough explanations for all corrections too. Her French is lovely as she is from France. She always knows the right vocabulary/translation into French which isn’t always the case with French teachers/tutors who speak Canadian French. I highly recommend her!
Amanda is a wonderful person to work with. She is very detail-oriented, and knows what her needs are, which allows me to help her with her goals in a way that seems efficient. She is determined, and cares a lot about learning nuances and correcting the little mistakes she might make. We have a great and pleasant exchange every time. Fantastic student! Highly recommended :)
Perfect! Knowledgeable and Patient. depends on a conversation approach. Highly recommended.
It is a pleasure working with Hatem. He has great foundations of French which we can draw upon, and a willingness to understand and learn all the details of the language. He is also a very kind and interesting person. I highly recommend Hatem as a student!
Perfect! Brune is a sensational teacher. She is patient, knowledgeable and produces results. Her teaching methods are excellent.
I highly recommend Brune as a teacher.
Steven is a delight to work with. His French is already great, as he can easily have a conversation on any topic, understand and make himself understood. He is always eager to learn, and correct the few mistakes he makes. I highly recommend Steven as a student!
Perfect! Brune is an exceptional and professional tutor: she arrives to each lesson on time, reminds my kids when they have a lesson, takes note of errors and corrects them in the chat so the kids can keep track of them, notices small mistakes, strengthens their knowledge of the French language in general and, for context, my kids seldom share opinions on tutors, but this time, the kids love her and agree that she is a big help to them.
I have a lot of fun teaching Eman's 14-year-old children, Ramzy (French conversation and French creative writing) and Sophia (French creative writing). After just a few weeks, I can already see an improvement for both of them, as they tap deeper into their creativity, and I am excited to keep working with them!
Brune is incredible! She and I have been working together on my show True Stories Told Live Toronto since March, and she is the glue that holds the whole thing together. She's smart, efficient, a brilliant communicator and a delight to be around. I highly recommend working with Brune!
Brune is a wonderful teacher who is helpful, clear and patient with students. I learned so much from her.
I LOVED having Brune as a teacher and I know that you will too.
