French conversation in an authentic French environment.

Wollongong tutor in French


I have some availabilities for private conversation session on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. You feel in France as soon as you come in!

Let's face it, speaking is often the hardest skill to master, most of us are overwhelmed by emotions such as embarrassment, shyness, brain freeze etc.. and French immersion is not for everyone's budget. I can offer you a flavour of France and a chance to improve your speaking skills at your own pace.

I'm a native French speaker and moved to Australia 13 years ago with my husband Andrew and I have been tutoring French privately since then. Let's make learning a pleasure! I'll help you increase your confidence and you'll enjoy your learning experience! Some of my current students have been with me for the last 6 years, they are now fluent. I enjoy our conversation as much as they do no matter the topic and wherever it takes us. I cherish it! Their loyalty tells me a lot. I know I can get you there because they did.

We enjoy occasional activities and events such as wine and cheese tasting, french film festivals and other gathering experiences locally or in Sydney. All in french, as much as possible in a convivial atmosphere.

I love sharing. I love my language and I love welcoming people to experience a little of France at our place too. I'm not afraid of technology and incorporate it in my course. We could either use your Ipad or mine. I like a dynamic and interactive course! Saying that, everyone learn differently and I listen to your need and how you want to learn. My service is "A la carte". It's not about how much or how quick, it's about you and what I can do to help you reach your own potential.

I also have tutoring vacancy. Either one on one, or small group tutoring (with discount). Course content can be created around your uni course, or your personal interests. They can be in depth grammar or relaxed basic conversation depending on your needs.

We are raising our 3 children, bilingual, they only speak French with me and within each other, no English at all and so far and it works for us! I have experience in tutoring people of all ages and with different goals. I'm always amazed about how much people can achieve with support and patience.

Don't hesitate to contact me and to meet me so we could talk about your aim and needs.

Fees: $50/h

Looking forward to hearing from you!

A bientôt!
