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!
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.

Thoraval is a very patient teacher, she has great listening skills and really helped her students turn academic failure into success during past few years :)
Patient and serious person, great teacher!
Learning French with Bénédicte is a great opportunity. She is such a sweet, benevolent and smart tutor who teaches with commitment. She really cares about your progress and your success.
In one word, enjoy!
I’d like to recommend Bénédicte as a
talented and skilled teacher.
She’s a practical, thoughtful and caring person.
She uses an individual approach to each student which makes her an outstanding professional in her field.
Bénédicte 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!
