Reviews (4)

I LOVE my classes with Virginie! In addition to be smart, knowledgeable and professional, she is also very outgoing and sociable. Those features are really important to me in a tutor. She makes our classes fun and informative. I highly recommend her to anyone who’s interested in taking French classes from a native speaker.
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.
Vriginie is a perceptive,engaging and effective teacher. Thank you Virginie!

Elise
French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - 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 goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their 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.
