Native French Teacher with a background in Art and Literature in NYC

Methodology

Patient and flexible, I adapt a specific methodology for each student. My different activities in Art and Culture improved my teaching skills. My artist practice helped me to develop a visual way to stimulate your memory. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Background

I have a Master Degree in Fine Art (ENSBA, Lyon, France) and a Master Degree in Art Publishing (University Jean-Monnet, Saint Etienne, France).

I started teaching French and Literature at the same time I was working in a Publishing House specialized in Social Sciences in Paris. When I moved in South of France, I taught more regularly to teenagers and young adults and worked as Associate Curator for an artist-run space.
I am trained to teach French, French Literature and Art.
I have taught French for over nine years. Recently I have moved to New York and I have completed my curriculum by teaching to kids in an After School.

BĂ©nĂ©dicte is a friend of mine. As long I know her she is giving French classes, she absolutely know how to do it. She’s a very attentive person and know how to create a strong interest in the student for the knowledge she’s transmitting. I recommend you to trust on her for your learning.

Bénédicte is a very dedicated and caring professor. She is encouraging, empathetic, good listener, and has a natural intuition to adapt to your interests. In addition, she has a great understanding of French culture, cinema and arts, as she is an artist herself! Learning French with her was a joy!
