One of the major aspects of my teaching style is to adapt the teaching and resources to the learning preferences of my students (Visual, Aural, Reading/write or Kinetic). I developed over the years a wide range of engaging resources that have proven to be successful for all learning styles and abilities.

To boost confidence and motivation, one of my specialties is to build on previous learnings in different contexts and ensure my students’ progression.

French verbs and French grammar are famously not popular so it is important to keep it as simple as possible. I also like to give lots of opportunities to practice them (orally, writing, reading, listening) using different interactive activities.

The majority of my new learners are shy when it comes to speaking French. But after a couple of lessons with me, it is always a delight to hear them speak more confidently. Thanks to some pronunciation tips, speaking techniques and the understanding that making mistakes is part of the learning process, they quickly overcome their initial shyness.
