Vriginie is a perceptive,engaging and effective teacher. Thank you Virginie!
I really enjoyed Virginie's lesson. She will definitely help me to improve my French.
I am very satisfied with Virginie’s support to improve my French. She is a highly educated native speaker who is very knowledgable of the nuances of her language. So far we have focused on improving my writting skills, through written compositions that she corrects, as well as my oral expressions through lively discussions between ourselves.

Cours particuliers matières littéraires : soutien scolaire et préparation aux épreuves
Étudiante Erasmus en Master de Littérature à Athènes, je propose des cours de soutien pour les matières littéraires : Francais, Philosophie, Histoire-géographie ; ainsi que de préparation au Brevet des collèges, aux épreuves anticipées de Français et au Baccalauréat. Ayant effectué un cursus en classe préparatoire, Hypokhâgne et Khâgne, j'ai développé de larges connaissances dans ces matières mais aussi une capacité d'organisation du travail. Je donne des cours particuliers depuis maintenant deux ans. J'ai également eu l'occasion d'enseigner lors d'un stage de préparation au épreuves anticipées de Francais et de faire passer des oraux blancs. Il s’agit de domaines qui me passionnent, et pour lesquelles j'aime transmettre mon intérêt quelque soit le niveau de l'élève. Je suis disponible en soirée ainsi que certains après-midis. N’hésitez pas à contacter apprentus. Au plaisir de vous rencontrer !

Cours de français ou d’anglais par une franco-anglaise
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.
