About me

I was born in France in Champagne and left France when I was 18 years old to travel around the world. In 1998 I came to Australia and liked so much the country that I decided to stay and built a new life in this country.

Since then I have been teaching French in the best private schools around Melbourne as you can see in my qualification and experience.

I am also a computer programmer in my spare time and know many computer languages.

My interests are philosophy, economics, politics, cinema and music

Teaching Approach

During my professional life as a teacher I learnt how to relate to my students and make them feel completely at ease during their learning journey. When I teach online I try to do the same so it is easy for you to talk and it will never feel uneasy in trying to come up with something to say.

I individualize lessons, encourage self-confidence and motivation for learning. My objective is for the student to come out of the lesson thinking "I have learned something today, and I have enjoyed myself”.

I can adapt my teaching to any level as I learnt how to be flexible during my teaching career. My favourite approach is a the communicative approach which means that during the lesson I will use the target language (French or English) as much as possible.

Francois quickly tailored the lessons to my specific needs. He is exactly what I was hoping for - critiques me, explains things well, and helps with my grammar and accent. At our last lesson, we read a text and discussed it.

Our trial lesson was effective as Francois now has a good understanding o what level I am at. I am looking forward to a more structured lesson next session. The only downside was that our Skype connection was not perfect.
