My name is Stéphane. I am French from Burgundy, France.
I have been a French teacher for over eight years in formal institutions such as American international schools and Alliance-Française, but I have also given private classes for a diverse group of clients such as high-ranking embassy officials, high school students, DELF/DALF candidates and more.
I am half French and half Ethiopian, so I am very good at learning new languages. I speak French, English, Amharic, and Tigrinya. I am currently living in California where I enjoy teaching French online!
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, and improving my English skills.

Areas of Experience:

I am always focused on the needs of my students for learning French.
I create tailored lesson plans, homework, and resources for each student.
I have a strong passion for the French language, and I wish to help my students master one of the most beautiful and romantic language of the world!
