Anyone who wants to study French, regardless of level, is welcome! I adapt to the student, focusing more on vocabulary, grammar, conjugation in earlier learning stages and on text-writing and literature in later ones. But to me, the key in learning a language is cultural immersion. I discuss French music, cinema, geography, cuisine and traditions, all of which serve as vectors to understand the language and its speakers better.
Half French, half Canadian, I speak fluently French and English. I completed my secondary education at an international school in Belgium where I passed four A-Levels. I carried on with an intensive two-year undergraduate course at one of the best schools in France, the lycée Henri-IV, before completing my history bachelor degree at the Sorbonne with honours. Throughout my academic career, I was led to learn and speak languages at various levels, whether as part of my study or for my own interest, including Spanish, Dutch, German and Hungarian. Surprisingly, they also helped me better understand French, my native language!

Perfect! Noé is a wonderful tutor- very patient and accommodating with my disability, but keeps conversation at a sufficiently challenging level to expand my command of the French language. He goes the extra mile for instance creating powerpoints to explain grammar issues he'd picked up on me struggling with in my written work. Fantastic knowledge of French history and society to expand my understanding of topics studied in my degree module, and a really fun tutor too!
Great speaking skills and a very strong motivation!
"I have known Noé's for three years and has often made me benefit from his teaching skills: he shares both his motivation and his serenity, and always corrects one's mistakes with composure. Moreover, his language skills and international experience made him a very open-minded person, attentive to external viewpoints and perspectives."
Noe has been my friend for four years and I know him very well. I saw him teaching, working, joking.
He speaks french, english, dutch,spanish, he has a lot of knowledge in History.
He's very patient, watchful, mindful and attentive. He is a very good teacher.
