Native French offering lessons to up to university level with great results.

Methodology

I will show patience, if you are willing to learn, making you repeat until you get it right.
We will revise what we did previously and move from there.
I also believe learning though game-playing can be very productive.

Experience

I'm a bilingual customer service advisor. I have a very good understanding of French language which I can convey.
Whether you're looking to improve your conversation, your writing, your vocabulary or your understanding I'm here to help. And at a very good price
