Bonjour ! Hello !
I am French but currently living in the Philippines, working as a French teacher in a private school and also teaching in University.
You might like learning with me because...
- I am dynamic, organized and patient,
- I am passionate about teaching; not afraid to try new strategies in order to find the most efficient one for each student,
- I care for my students; I want to see them succeed,
- I have teaching experience to children, teenagers and adults,
- I specialize in using numeric to improve the learning experience; I am familiar with lots of tools and create my own resources.
September 2016: Master in Teaching French as a Foreign Language, specialized in using numeric tools
June 2014: "University Diplom" in Teaching French as a Foreign Language
June 2013: Bachelor in Foreign Languages Applied to Law and Economics (English & German)
January to July 2016: Teaching in Cebu City (the Philippines) - to teenagers and adults, from beginner (A1) to intermediate (B1), one-to-one session and very big groups (around 45 students)
April to July 2015: Teaching in Hô-Chi-Minh (Vietnam) - to children and teenagers, from beginner to intermediate, small groups
2014-2015: organisation of intercultural workshops in the Alliance Française of Bordeaux (France)
I've also been certified as an examiner for French language tests (DELF and DALF) in December 2015.
First, I identify the objective(s) of my students: do you want to improve your writing skills particularly? Is your goal to hold a conversation in French? Do you need to get ready for a French exam?
Second, I make the learning process as active as possible; I encourage my students to deduce rules, I use their knowledge in other languages to make them understand French and I make sure they get how the language works.
Third, I use material that appeal to you: are you a fan of series? Then introduce me to the main characters. Do you love your job? Explain me what you're really doing. You want to talk about your daily life? Answer a questionnaire about your habits in your city... You really want to talk about a precise subject? No problem, I am flexible!
At last, I believe that the Internet and some mobile applications are precious tools to enhance the learning experience, so why not using them?
Excellent tutor. Well prepared and detailed lesson. Great use of visual aids to make lesson fun and easy to remember the rules. Have booked regular lessons with Jeanne and looking forward to improve my French with her teaching!
Jeanne was armed with plenty of ammunition (visual aids, exercises etc) 3 hours prior to the lesson she had already sent me a link where I could feed my homework into. With Jeanne not only I am learning French but interneting too. Recommended, yes!
She tought me numbers like a baby. Thanks I learnt it
My only request was for Jeanne to speak to me in French all the time, despite my limited vocabulary. Not only she did that; she had a comprehensive lesson plan, loads of visual aids, up to date technology. She is Brilliant. Highly recommended
