⭐Passionate, happy, certified and experimented French Language teacher⭐
italki teacher since Nov 23, 2021
I was born and raised in Perpignan, a city located in the south of France at the border with Spain.
After spending a few years abroad (Spain, UK, Benin, United States) and then in Paris, I am back in the south of France and now live in Montpellier.
I have a Master's degree in International Negotiation and Foreign languages (English and Spanish) and have worked for several years in international relations mainly in international organizations such as the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development).
I then got a degree as a teacher of French as a foreign language from the Alliance Française in Paris and now work as a full-time French teacher in person and remotely.
Me as a Teacher
I have learned foreign languages myself and I had to face the same difficulties as my students so I understand what they are going through.
I take great pleasure in teaching French to foreigners, for me it is much more than a job, it is a passion! I always try to improve myself and find the keys to help my students make effective and quick progress. In a friendly atmosphere, I will always be there to support you and keep you motivated.
My lessons & teaching style
I follow the action-oriented approach recommended by the CECR. In other words, this means that you will always be a real actor in my course, which will help you to gain confidence and achieve remarkable results. At the end of each class, you will be less and less afraid to express yourself in French.
In our first class, I will be analyzing your needs and the main things you need to improve in French. Do you struggle with oral comprehension? Written expression? Speaking? Whatever your difficulty may be, I will adapt my classes to your needs, and help you achieve your learning goals.

One of the best French teacher in Italki! I had a few sessions with Claire already, and I will definitely continue to have more. Claire gives homework, and make notes for us students to study outside of the class sessions. Great teacher!
