    Teaching Approach

    I am a fluent French speaker, having studied the language at university and then lived and worked in France and Canada (Montréal). I know what is helpful in learning a foreign language because I've been in that position - so I remember what things were useful and what wasn't! I am also a teacher of English as a foreign language, and I believe that similar teaching principles can be applied to teaching French as with English.
    I teach the basics of French grammar so a student has a good starting point, while they are learning new vocabulary in each lesson. I think it's important to use real-life situations when teaching a language, so the student can have confidence in using their newly-acquire d language in a francophone environment.

    Teaching Experience

    I have 13 years' teaching experience in private language schools in Sydney, Perth, Paris, Montréal, the UK and West Africa. This includes teaching adults at all levels, from beginner to advanced.
