The French Experiment - French tutoring & teaching specialist

Canberra tutor in French

I travel to these locations
ACT, Australia, Overseas

Bonjour, My name is Flavie and I am from Paris, France. I moved to Australia 21 years ago and lived mainly in Melbourne and Canberra. I have a daughter who is in Year 12 at Telopea Park School. She is studying the French Curriculum.

With my 20+ years of experience as a French tutor (and trained FLE tutor), I can help you improve your French whatever the level. I can coach academically primary students to DFAT personnel.
I tutor and support :
- primary/secondary/university levels
- provide academic or conversational tuition
- preparation for exams ( DELF/Brevet/BAC)
- Help with presentations and assignments
- Comprehension of French literature
- Private or group tuition
- Flexible hours and availability on weekdays (and Saturdays from 2019)

** Online teaching available throughout the day and in the evening through Skype **

(The cost of printing, preparing material for lessons, handouts, material, photocopying, exercises for home is inclusive in the fees.)

Over the years, I had the chance to meet and work with a great diversity of people from all backgrounds and walks of life. This has enriched my life enormously and taught me to be flexible and adaptable with my students. I love my native tongue, the French culture and enjoy passing on my knowledge. I tailor my lessons according to my student's needs and ability.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Au plaisir de vous rencontrer, Flavie
