My goals for you as a student are concrete: I want you to be able to get around in a French-speaking country.
I make my classes as fun and pleasant as possible. As a language learner myself, I analyzed my experiences and apply successful methods into my teaching.
Although there can be lessons of the classical type (grammar, pronunciation, conjugation, etc.), I will always inscribe them into a cultural context that will allow my students to make sense of the language through its concrete application.
I put a strong emphasis on speaking and understanding. I personalize my lessons and their content according to skills and levels.
I have been giving French lessons for the last 8 years.
I taught French as a foreign language in secondary education in the UK and the Netherlands, at university in the US and on a private lesson basis in Mexico and the US.
Overall I probably taught and assisted up to 40 students.
I have always received positive feedback: in academic contexts, my students have been successful and in casual settings they equally enjoyed my classes very much!
My travel charge will differ according to the distance.

I was Stephanie's manager for a job in Amsterdam where she was always reliable and able to work without supervision. In her role she taught our partners on how to use our software - she excelled at this by always being positive, patient and building good rapport with them. Along with that she can communicate flawlessly in English and French, is extremely intelligent and easy to get along with. No hesitiations in recommending Stephanie, anyone would be extremely lucky to have her as a teacher!
