Teaching Approach

Nowadays, only a few people learn a language for its beauty, but a lot of learner have concrete motives. According to me, learning a langage is to be able to use it. I would like to show you that you can already communicate in french even though you might not be very fluent yet.

After deciding together how we're going to study, we will practice french with a topic I will give you in advance and I will give you some exercice (grammar, vocabulary, ...) according to what you need and your goal.

To prepare TEF (tefaq) or TCF (tcfq) in a more efficient way, we will proceed like this :

- understanding what level you need, and what you need to pass this level.

- explain the exam, understand it better

- practice with exam's subjects that you could have when you take it.

- at the same time : reinforce grammar and vocabulary in accordance with what you already know and what you need.

- if it's usefull and if you've time, I'll give you some homeworks so that you can prepare better.

I can't promise you that you'll succed, but I can promise you I'll help you as efficiently as I can to prepare you in the best way for the big day.

If you want to study with me but you can't find a time slot that is convenient for you, feel free to send me a message, we will try to make it work!

Teaching Approach

Très souvent, on apprend une langue pour pouvoir communiquer avec celle-ci. Alors, après avoir évalué vos besoins et votre niveau et convenu ensemble d'une méthode de travail, je vous propose de commencer à communiquer en français.

Pour cela, nous pourrons par exemple nous baser sur un article ou autre document que je vous aurai donné à l'avance. Nous intégrerons également un peu de grammaire et conjugaison, et je suis certaine que votre niveau de français augmentera très vite! Si vous le souhaitez, je pourrai également vous laisser des exercices d'entrainement dont nous pourrons discuter par la suite.

Si vous souhaitez préparer un examen, alors nous mettrons ensemble en place un plan d'action!

Daphnee is very conscientious, patient and kind. She puts a great effort in planning each session and assigning and reviewing "les devoirs." I look forward to working with Daphnee again.

Great lesson! Daphnee is by far my favourite tutor so far that I have tired. I'd recommend her to you - but then you'll book up all her free time! :P
