Bonjour!

Originally from France, I moved to Australia with my husband 14 years ago. Throughout the years, I have been imparting my native command of the language to my students.

I specialise in tutoring VCE French and hence, am very familiar with the curriculum. I offer private lessons at my home.

Throughout the years, I have taught students from the following schools:
- Scotch College
- Genazzano FCJ College
- Balwyn High School
- Ruyton girls’school
- Fintona Girls' School - Koonung Secondary College
- Methodist Ladies' College (MLC)
- Doncaster Secondary College - Camberwell Grammar School
- Xavier College
- Presbyterian Ladies' College (PLC)
- Trinity grammar school
- Siena College
- Camberwell High school
- Tintern grammar
- …


To prepare my VCE students for their assessments, I cover the four core components: speaking, writing, listening and reading. Throughout the year, I engage in conversation using tailored questions often asked in the oral exam for both the general conversation and the detailed study. My students are encouraged to practise writing essays in a variety of genres to familiarise themselves with the different stylistic elements. From these essays, I identify any grammatical learning gaps and provide the appropriate exercises. To further enhance their language expression and bring an authenticity found in a native French speaker, I focus on common idioms and colloquialisms. More importantly, I put emphasis on various grammatical nuances often overlooked in the classroom as a consequence of an intensive schedule. I provide listening and reading tasks with corresponding vocabulary lists in order to extend my students’ lexicon. I can also personalise these exercises toward their SAC topics and reoccurring themes in the final exam.

It is my pleasure to help students develop an appreciation of French. I aim to improve their language skills and to see them excel in their personal goals. Moreover, it is imperative to bolster confidence in those who feel lost in the intricacies of French or who have limited access to resources and the necessary assistance. I am convinced that performance should not be the sole aspiration, but also, an assurance in one’s potential.

I also hold lessons for those younger than Year 11 and Year 12 students and in addition, adult French classes at beginner and advanced levels through several language schools.

I am located in Doncaster, at walking distance from Westfield Shopping Town. If coming from the city via the Eastern freeway, take the Doncaster exit or if through Ringwood, exit from Tram Rd.

"No amount of words can express my eternal gratitude for Madame Delphine! I only wish that I had found her earlier as I only began my journey with her in June 2022. I will be honest, I was lacking so much confidence and motivation in French before I discovered this lovely gem! I couldn’t believe that after a few lessons Madame had turned the tables and made French my favourite subject! I became more passionate about learning French! Every week, I looked forward to going to each lesson because her style of teaching was so enjoyable, interesting and unmatched by any other. I could just say that I didn’t even feel like I was learning at all and was just having fun! Even if she had a tight schedule, she always made room for me and I can’t thank her enough. Delphine was always so patient with me regardless of how many mistakes I made, she corrected me in a way that did not make me feel demotivated at all. Overall, a lovely and kindhearted woman, I am sure everyone enjoys her presence! She woulds always arrange fun exercises and memory tricks to assist me with tricky French conjugations and tenses. And if you want extra work and practice? Don’t worry she has you covered with her copious amount of fun worksheets! Unfortunately our time together had to come to an end and I was very devastated. I highly recommend Delphine as anyone’s French tutor regardless of what grade you are in because she will make your French experience a beautiful memory! Delphine genuinely cares about your learning and you as an individual.Merci beaucoup Madame!"
