I teach young children using a play-based approach. Most of the activities are planned based on my students ’interests and questions in a fun way using "Playful education".
My students have benefited from the creative and hands-on learning experiences inspired from these methods such as Montessori, Freinet and Reggio.
My approach to teaching young adults and adults is different as I adjust to their age abilities and interests. The contents of my lessons are tailored to the individual needs.
I am a French native primary teacher who has taught French and English as a second language to children for over 10 years internationally. I have also experience teaching adults as a volunteer in a NGO. My students have benefited from the creative and hands-on learning experiences inspired from alternative approaches such as Montessori;Freinet and Reggio.

Je connais Marie-Line depuis une trentaine d'années. Je n'ai pas eu la chance de pouvoir travailler avec elle mais j'ai celle d'être son amie. J'ai donc eu tout loisir de la voir être la personne bienveillante qu'elle est avec les enfants. Elle les considère comme des êtres humains à part entière, les écoute avec beaucoup d'attention, a à cœur de respecter leur développement, sait susciter en eux la curiosité afin qu'ils découvrent par eux même. J'ai de fait également été témoin du plaisir qu'ont les enfants à être avec elle, de la sérénité qu'elle leur apporte. De plus, elle s'enrichit beaucoup de lectures, de conférences sur la question des enfants, de l'être humain en général ce qui témoigne notamment de sa capacité à toujours questionner sa pratique afin d'accompagner au plus près des besoins de chacun.
Marie-Line was my colleague in US and she's a very good profesional, she always looking for new ideas to make her class more funny with a good research of material and wonderfull pedagogic skills. Marie-Line is an excellent french teacher with many years of teaching now with very good result. She's also a very nice person and an adorable teacher for all her students. As a colleague she's a roll model because she shared everything and make didactic conversation amazing. Marie-Line is the best french teacher ever, with good material and always a lot of new idea to make her class a very pleasant moment.
