If you have always wanted to learn French, if your children need moral support in French, if you speak French but don't have the confidence to speak in public, I am here to help you with all of the following!
No matter your age, I will make sure our lessons are adapted to what you need for you to master the art of that French je-ne-sais-quoi .
I am a 24 year old Swiss-French-American living in London and have been teaching French for the past 6 years to students of all ages, at different levels (Written and practice speaking)
I believe anybody can master French quickly if they have the will to do so. And with the right teaching, adapted to each student's easiest way of learning, I am always amazed to see how quickly beginners become fluent with such easiness in a matter of just a few lessons.
I will always finds an amusing creative way to teach, thus making the work less difficult for the student. I always have my lessons planned out ahead of time, but am ready to change it on the spot if the student brings last minute work/homework/emails he needs to work on.
I believe confidence is the first step in daring to speak a foreign language and will make you feel at ease in no time. You will be surprised at how fast you will be learning.
I understand the importance to work both the grammar/writing as much as practice speaking. If you generally are shy to speak out in public, we will work on being able to fully enjoy participating in a French conversation/class et al.
If you buy 10 lessons ahead of time, the 10th lesson is free of charge.
I generally like to give a 1h30 lesson. Those 30minutes more a week will make such a difference to how quickly you will fully speak French.

Melanie has been my English teacher for 7 months. She teaches me English 2hours per week via Skype. I am a French speaker working in an American business company. I needed Melanie’s help to be able to feel at ease speaking in English to my coworkers and clients over the phone or in live situations.
Melanie also helps me reading my work emails and replying to these using the appropriate tone.
Melanie is a friendly and kind teacher and mostly very patient. She is younger than I am but always shows professional maturity throughout her classes and I never felt uncomfortable about it.
I am glad to have her as my teacher!
