Cours de français et de sciences en français à Washington et environs

Methodology

Do not learn but understand is my motto.

I love to let students, teens or adults, learn by them-self. You don't need to learn, but to understand. It's more efficient, playfull and interesting. I always try to find cool exercices and I always have good relationships with my students.

N'apprends pas mais comprends est ma devise

J'aime laisser mes étudiants, ados ou adultes, apprendre par eux-même. Vous de devez pas apprendre mais comprendre. J'essaie au mieux de trouver des exercices qui parlent et j'ai toujours eux de bonnes relations avec mes étudiants.

Background

French native speaker, I have a PhD in geochemistry wirh a background in chemistry. I was private teacher in physic-chemistry and in mathematics in France (8-12th grade) and science popularizer in class (4-6th grade). All my students have improved their level and obtained their diplomas (aprox. 12 as private teacher).

Je peux donner des cours de Physique chimie et aussi de maths suivant le niveau. Mes élèves ont toujours eux de bon résultats après mon passage : avec moi on se marre, mais on apprend aussi !
