 Madame Xuereb and I had a wonderful conversation on two great contemporary French actresses in French cinema, which is so refined and unique. We also talked about the issues confronting all of us with Covid and the intake of media. Thank you Madame.

 As always, our conversation was fun, fast paced, and easy. So amazing! I very much enjoyed talking about Romy Schneider's life and her loves, they were part of my growing up years and it was interesting to reminisce. Thank you, Madame Xuereb, for an hour well spent in my life.

 Madame Xuereb and I discussed the social, ethnic and racial problems in the USA where I live. it is wonderful to be able to speak fluently with her and I owe this wholly to her great teaching and tutoring over the last four years. It is sad that we do not have better news to talk about on earth at this time.

 I cannot get over the speed and ease I have with my fluency that has come about in my conversations with Madame Xuereb in the last 3.5 years. I can speak now as fast and coherently in French as in English, my native tongue, about every and anything. It is such a welcome pleasure to speak with you Madame. Merci!

No weekends

No advance payment accepted

Many thanks in advance

Preparation for exams and tests: no surcharges - no free trial lesson. Many thanks.

I’m a native French speaker, and have lived in South of France since 1970.

I’m a professional and dynamic teacher, flexible, adaptable, easy-going, friendly, patient, well-organized, and eager for my students to succeed. I speak French, Italian and English, together with some Spanish, Polish and German.

I have a good general knowledge background, in addition to languages, I have studied art, cinema, and literature. I enjoy new intellectual challenges.

My favorite pastimes are reading books and watching films. I like cooking and walking in the countryside.

I enjoy work, am conscientious and don’t mind working long hours. I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm for the French language and culture with others.

Qualifications & Experience

I earned a certification to teach French as foreign language in 1998 from University of Avignon. Since then, I have been teaching French (and Italian) as a foreign language (totaling over 15 years of experience, of which two were spent teaching in Poland).

I have also taught general French courses, courses on French culture and heritage (civilization, history, geography), and specialized French courses, including scientific and technical French, business and new technology, policy, economy and diplomatic relations.

I have worked with European officials and businessmen (including those working for the UN, WFP, UNDP, MFA. More generally, I have worked with foreigners wishing to travel or live in France or in a French-speaking country such as Switzerland or Canada, and with students who need a tutor for specific exam purposes. I have prepared my students to take TCF, DILF, DELF, and DALF exams.

Teaching Approach

I give lessons to both adults and teenagers face-to-face or one-to-one, from beginner to advanced levels. My approach is focused on the requests of learners, though I prefer an interactive methodology.

My objectives are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

I adapt my teaching style to suit students’ needs. I have patience, understanding, perseverance and thoroughness. I try at all times to give clear explanations, using concrete examples and situations.

I’m good at encouraging the self-confidence which enables students to feel linguistically secure enough to make the leap into fluid communication.

I know from my own experience that learning a foreign language should be both a pleasure and an enjoyable adventure. It’s also a great opportunity to share culture, customs and traditions. I do my best to pass all of this on to my students in an enjoyable and relaxed manner.

About me - French

- Ma langue maternelle est le français et j’habite le Sud de la France depuis 1970.

- Je suis un professeur très professionnel, dynamique et flexible. Amicale, patiente, bien organisée, je m’adapte vite et n’ai qu’un objectif : la réussite de mes étudiants.

- Je parle français, italien et anglais. Je connais un peu d’espagnol, de polonais et d’allemand.

- J’ai une bonne culture générale, en plus des langues étrangères, j’ai étudié l’art, le cinéma et la littérature.

- Lire et regarder des films font partie de mes passe-temps favoris. J’aime cuisiner et marcher en pleine nature.

- J’aime mon travail, je suis consciencieuse et ne compte pas trop le temps que je passe avec mes étudiants. Je travaille généralement du crépuscule à l’aurore pour que nos amis d’autres continents puissent avoir un professeur natif plus facilement joignable. J’ai hâte de partager avec vous mon enthousiasme pour la langue française et la culture de mon pays.

PS : J’aime les nouveaux défis.

Qualifications & Experience

J’ai obtenu ma licence de FLE en 1998 à l’université d’Avignon. Depuis, j’enseigne le français langue étrangère (et l’italien), j’ai plus de 15 ans d’expérience dont deux passée en Pologne. Je donne des cours aussi bien de français général (langue et phonétique mais aussi la culture, l’histoire, la littérature, la géographie) que de Français sur objectif spécifique ; sciences et techniques, français des affaires, nouvelles technologies, politique, économie, relations diplomatiques.

J’ai travaillé avec des Officiels européens, hommes d’affaires, chercheurs, personnes travaillant pour le PAM, PNUD ou MAE de leur pays. Le plus souvent, mes apprenants souhaitent parler français car ils désirent voyager, travailler, vivrent en France ou dans un pays francophone ou bien ils ont besoin d’une aide ponctuelle lors de cours intensifs pour passer un examen. J’ai préparé nombreux d’entre eux aux tests du TCF, DILF, DELF et DALF.

Teaching Approach

Je donne des cours particuliers aux adultes et aux adolescents de tous les niveaux (de A1 à C1). Mon approche est centrée sur la demande de l’apprenant, ma méthode est interactive. Le cadre européen commun de référence pour les langues est un de mes outils.

J’adapte mon enseignement pour être au plus proche des besoins de l’étudiant. J’ai beaucoup de patience, de compréhension, de persévérance et de rigueur. Je tente toujours de trouver des solutions si problème il y a , en donnant des explications claires à travers des exemples précis et des situations concrètes.

J’encourage au maximum la confiance en soi afin que mes étudiants de tout âge se sentent à leur aise pour prendre des risques et se lancer dans la communication.

Selon moi, apprendre une langue étrangère doit être un plaisir et une aventure agréable voire passionnante. C’est aussi la chance de partager avec l’autre une culture, des us et coutumes, des traditions. Je vous transmettrai cela dans une ambiance détendue et enjouée
