Whether you need better conversational skills for holiday or business trip to France or you want to dive into literature and secure a top grade in academic exams, I can help you.
I was born and raised in France, I graduated from a top French University and I worked in France for 20 years. I only moved to California last year.
I started tutoring when I was a student. Then, as the CEO of an innovation company, I trained and mentored young professionals for many years. And I raised 3 kids. One is in High School, two of them are now in top colleges, they are both bi or trilingual and have studied in several countries. My father and grand father were French teachers, my son studies literature.
French is a beautiful language. I can help you grasp its music, its rhythm and its exact pronunciation. But it is also a complicated grammar, with tricky but logical rules and deep Latin roots. French has also an intimate connection with English and it is fascinating for English speakers to discover where 40% of English words come from, and what family they belong to.
I can also help you with literature (especially 18th, 19th and 20th centuries), as well as help you with French society tricks or French Business culture.
