French & French History teacher and DELF DALF center director/examiner with 10 years of experience in the Bay Area for children, teenagers (AP/SAT prep) and adults. Extensive experience with ONLINE Te

Methodology

My classes are always fun, and are action-based.
I believe motivation is the most powerful tool for learning enhancement.
I am also a strong believer in full immersion, which means that during class, I speak only in French even with beginners, believe me or not, it works! I draw, I mime, I use plenty of techniques, and you will understand it all!

Background

I have been giving French classes for 10 years+, in the Alliance Francaise in Mexico and in the Bay Area.
I have extensive training and experience in teaching children (from 5 years old), teens and adults, in individual or group classes, in person or on Skype.
I have prepared students for the following tests: DELF PRIM (5-11 years old), DELF Junior (teens,all levels) DELF and DALF for adults ( all levels) , TCF, SAT... and I am proud to say that all my students who presented the test passed it: 100%.
I have also prepared students for a trip to France either for leisure or professional reasons.
I work now as a Academic Program Director and DELF DALF center Director, and also supervise French textbooks edition, but I love to teach so I have a selected amount of students I enjoy to work with.
