Besides helping you to become more fluent in French, I have a passion for French Grammar.
I have been teaching French for more than 15 years and I enjoy explaining difficult things in a simple way with clear examples. I can answer any question about French Grammar or make you practice what you know in theory.

For beginners I use the book Alter Ego+ A1 with which I had great results over the years.

We got off to a great start!
Had a birth chart session with Catherine a couple weeks back. It was a great session with many insights. Catherine is very communicative and adjusts the reading to your interests and needs. I would recommend it to anyone!
Catherine is patient and a great teacher with a good paced program. After 3 lessons I already feel progress. I'll definitely continue with her.
It was great working with Catherine! She is very patient and accommodating to my needs.
It was the perfect time to have my astrological reading done. Catherine was able to clearly communicate where I am currently at, how my personality, energy and being works and what may or may not work for me and why. You truly notice her depth of experience with astrology. Very thankful to have found her.
...
I've been reading and explaining Astrological charts for 30 years. I can read and analyze your chart based on your date of birth, I like even better to teach Astrology so you learn to interpret yourself. Astrology is a fascinating symbolic system that gives great insight and self-knowledge. A reading includes a chart interpretation with strengths and challenges and about 1 year of forecast. I also do readings for relationships (partners, child and parent, business partners, potential partners...) Don't hesitate to contact me for more information.
Non-Violent Communication is a method invented by Marshall Rosenberg. It focuses on feelings and needs, it helps to develop empathy and communicate more clearly. I can teach you and help you to practise the 4 steps (Observation, Feelings, Needs, Request) and support you in a difficult situation.

Ask a question

Send a message explaining your needs and Catherine will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

For motivated students who want to learn French with a smile ;-)
I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

French courses for students in school and students who would like to improve in the language.
French is one of the most influential languages in the world. Knowing how to speak, read and write it while understanding the significant accuracy of the words used is an asset that unfortunately very few master. My courses are based on the expectations of my client, the areas in which he wants to work will be put to work.
