About Me

I am originally from India and now live in Utrecht. Because I learned French as a second language myself, I understand how difficult it can be to master the language. With my eight years of experience as a teacher at Alliance Française, I know how much fun it is to learn a language with music and culture and games. I am an easy-going person and I have a passion for words, books, languages and, of course, for teaching.

Lucie
French lesson (ONLINE) - French course (ONLINE)
EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn French, whether it's from zero or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to introduce myself, how to make an appointment, do the shopping, go to the doctor, French at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice.

Théo
All levels French classes! Grammar, reading and conversation.
Hello! My name is Théo and I am a French native, I am 24 years old and I arrived in Utrecht in September. I graduated from a two years masters degree in History of art and Museology in 2020. I had the opportunity to teach these subjects to bachelor students for a year, so I have some experience in teaching at a university level. I have also given French lessons to a little German boy who lived in my neighborhood, from his primary to middle school years. I believe I have sufficient experience experince in teaching French at different levels and would love to conitnue giving private lessons. In order to make the lessons more original and dynamic, I could also include art historical references to the classes. I am enthusiastic, patient and professional. My aim is to build a trusting relationship with the students, which I believe will help them succeed. If you are interested in learning French and more generally by French culture, do not hesitate to contact me!

French classes by a Native French speaker teacher.
In my class, I offer my students a French course with a real French speaker. I also happen to study French teaching at the Hogeschool Utrecht and used to teach to my classmates back in High School. In my class, the students choose wether he/she/they wants to talk (E.G basic conversation to improve their understanding of the frenchspeaking ), study (E.G course+homework+test) or if they just want to have fun while studying (E.G playing french games or watching, listening to french music/films). As a French studying French teaching, I can assure you that you or your kids will be improving in French no matter what.

Elise
French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.
