I help driven Francophiles to find their French voice & understand French culture
French has always been my thing.
More than just my native tongue or a tool of communication I am skilled at. It is my home, my country, the place that I always have inside me, no matter where I live.
My role is to be your guide in exploring this fascinating country so that you too feel you belong here—in a way that’s unique to you.
As a coach, I will provide you with the best tools to improve and find the right pace for your learning process, keeping it both enjoyable and challenging.
Learning French can be a real joy, and during this singular adventure you could even discover you have enriched your life with much more than just a new skill.
Speaking French and understanding French culture might also reveal a new part of you, your “French self”. Who knows what it has to tell you?
It’s essential to me to be reliable. And to hold my clients accountable.
I expect each one to do their best and help them to do so.
When a client’s motivation meets my enthousiasm, we become the best team.
I am not a people pleaser.
The feedback I give is meant to be constructive and help my clients to improve.
I expect honesty from them as well whether is is about asking for clarification or sharing challenges so that we can tackle them together.
I value commitment and consistency.
Whatever their goals are, my clients are all passionate and driven.
They take French seriously and act accordingly. And so do I… without forgetting the fun factor :)
