I teach in a supportive, enthusiastic and friendly style, creating a relaxed atmosphere for my students to absorb the language in an interactive way.
Based on each individual's personality, strengths, and weaknesses, each lesson has a unique construct, using drama techniques from my experience as a drama practitioner and teacher.
Efficient tools are given to be immersed in the language and experience a different learning approach without homework, notebooks or efforts between the lessons, which allows the learning process to be efficient and continue its work between the lessons.
I can suggest some material to think about the given lesson and play with it if possible during the week, regarding each student's expectations and needs.
I am here to help you grow in confidence and knowledge in developing your skills and I will be delighted to do the journey with you.
I do expect all my students to focus and work with me during the sessions and to keep the regularity and commitment necessary to have great results.

Last but not least Nathalie is lovely and such a pleasure to learn with!
Nathalie is a great teacher. She has helped me go from good, to fluent. I have never studied French, but lived there as an adult and learned that way. Nathalie has been great at helping me go back through the areas that I have missed and helping me fill in my foundation.
Delightful and engaging, Nathalie combines a sense of fun with rigorous study techniques. She understands children and teenagers and knows just how to encourage them to immerse themselves in French language and culture.
