I graduated from the Sorbonne University with a Master’s in Literature and French as a Foreign Language. I’ve have been a French tutor for many years, with countless success stories: from expatriates with no experience learning French, to students with advanced language skills.

I created French à la Carte in 2012. I’ve been fortunate to teach a wide range of people in many different roles. From students, to high-flying executives, to diplomats… I like to take my the students out of their comfort zone. I am genuinely passionate about teaching and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with students.

Languages, Literature and books have always been my passions. I speak fluently English and Spanish, and I am currently learning Italian, so I also know what it means to be on the other side!

After I first graduated from my English Literature Master’s degree, I spent a year as a French teacher at Bristol University. Then I graduated with a Master’s degree in teaching French as a Foreign Language and moved to London where I taught at the Alliance Française for three years. 

Since books are also a passion, I experienced working in Publishing for two years, first in a Literary Agency in Paris and then at one of the oldest French Publishing houses: Calmann-Lévy. I now dedicate myself to teaching, but still give a hand to Publishing houses as I keep writing book reviews for a London-based agency.

I am an experienced French tutor and had the chance to teach to various profiles and nationalities. I can also prepare you for DELF / DALF examination from a beginner level ( A1 ) to very advanced level ( C1) and help you to optimize your chance to pass these examinations.

For me each student means a new challenge to take up : to understand your specific goals, to find the most appropriate learning resources and to decide on a personalized learning path. In order to reach your linguistic goal, my key words are : tailor-made, flexibility, efficiency.

Previously to my career as a French tutor, I also had the chance to work in the sector of translation and in IT but I came back to French tuition as no other experiences has been so rewarding. To pass on my own language with enthusiasm and genuine passion represent of my my core values.

Born in the heart of Paris, I am still fascinated by my own city « the City of lights » and this after 10 years spent abroad. I am still in touch with new cultural places, spot new gastronomic places. I will be very pleased to be your French coach and help you to decipher the Parisian cultural codes.

After a year studying in the United-Kingdom, I graduated from Paris Diderot University with a Bachelor's degree in foreign languages and later a Master's degree in technical translation.  

As a native French language teacher since 2017, my interest in teaching and in languages have come a long way. I have been into tutoring and exchanging with language partners of various countries for about 10 years.    

Aside from French, I can speak English and a little Korean, Japanese and German. I am convinced that my knowledge in foreign languages is a major asset in helping students.

I also have a long experience abroad : I studied in Milan, I have been a journalist in Bangkok and a private tutor in Russia before returning to Paris where I now teach full time French as a foreign language.

I also teach teenagers and children who are learning French for their studies. I am passionate about teaching and I will be very happy to help you benefit from my experience and discover the French language and culture.”

From Chile to Vietnam via Sweden and Spain, I taught French to different audiences from A1 to C1, with children, teenagers and adults, from various cultures. Holder of a master's degree in French as a foreign language, I also have a training in theater, which allowed me to conduct drama workshops in French and to use theatrical techniques in my classes. 

I use a lot of authentic documents such as excerpts from movies, comics, literature or the press, with the aim of always adapting to the needs of my students. I have taught a lot with children using creative techniques around singing, puppetry, comics, drawing, (I have also been trained in this field) and theater. I am also authorized to correction of DELF DALF exams. Finally, Parisian heart from my childhood, and theatrical guide, I can invite you to discover unique corners, secret or gourmet, through a theatrical or more classical view.

It is with great enthusiasm that I teach the French language and French culture to students interested not only by the language but also by French etiquette. As I am a Parisian, secret Paris is very familiar to me: galleries, intimate museums…

I studied French at the Sorbonne University and History of Art at the Ecole du Louvre. I taught 3 years in a bilingual school in Paris. I have also worked as a cinema screenwriter for a few years.
