ABOUT ME :
My name is, I currently live in Athens and will be delighted to teach French to children, teenagers, and adults of all levels. I am a French native speaker; fluent in English, I am living in Leicester (UK). I am very passionate about language teaching and I love learning. I like traveling and exchanging with people from different cultures and sharing my passion for arts, music, and French, English cultures. I used to study visual communication and digital arts in France and music in Belgium.
I currently finish my Ph.D. student in Music technology.
MY EXPERIENCES / METHODS :
Last academic year (2017-2018), I was a lecturer in Conversational French at Coventry University (UK) in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
Since 2014, I have many teaching experiences :
1/ I teach teenagers and adults of all levels through Skype and face-to-face lessons (from beginners to advanced levels and from 15 to 75 years old)
** For adults: I support them to improve their writing, reading, and conversational skills. Each lesson targets a particular topic chosen with the student. I guide students to enrich their vocabulary, improve their grammar, speaking, and writing skills.
2/ I taught French to small groups of children (age: 5 to 11 years old) in primary schools.
**My teaching methods with children are based on creative exercises that mix collective games, drawing, singing, talking and writing to enrich their vocabulary, grammatical and speaking skills.
Are you a beginner who had never really studied French before?
Are you an expert French speaker who wants to sound like native speakers and broaden your vocabulary?
Or do you want to learn more about French culture?
My approach to teaching French is rich, methodic, creative and varied.
I am very adaptable to all levels and to the needs of each student.
I will guide you with patience and determination to master French and become comfortable speaking, writing, reading French.
According to your needs, our lessons can cover :
- General Conversation
- French Pronunciation
- French grammar
- Specific Vocabulary

Le français est une langue très complexe et beaucoup de français eux même ont des difficultés. Venant d’étude littéraires puis cinématographique je propose de partager ma connaissance pour ma langue difficile mais également “utile” car beaucoup parlée dans le monde.
I also give english courses because my mother is british so I’m lucky to speak currently two different languages. I gave, during two years, english courses to a french teenager.
