I propose to emphasize oral comprehension and expression through friendly conversation. Of course, we can also discuss the underlying grammar if that is helpful to you. I will invite you to choose which material or topic is of most interest to you. On my side, I have varied interests including technology, aviation, programming, skiing, travelling and more. Looking forward to working with you. Feel free to ask for 'same-day lessons'; I am usually available to accept lesson requests with one hour advance notice, between 9:00 and 17:00 Montreal time (UTC - 4:00).

René is a very professional and highly motivating teacher, I enjoy the classes a lot and learn many new things from different fields, also technologies, IT, medicine and economics. Highly recommended, especially if you need more vocabulary from different specific fields. The classes are perfectly structured, I can speak a lot and do not feel uncomfortable while speaking English. Thank you very much, René!

René has helped me focus on the nuances of my pronunciation and usage that are important for comprehension and presenting a professional image. Thanks for the continual fine tuning!

I’ve been taking French conversation lessons with René for a little over a month now and have really learned a lot from them. René is a kind and patient teacher and is fluently bilingual in French and English. He is good at keeping the class and conversation flowing and has provided me with helpful resources to improve my learning and exposure to French on my own time. I would happily recommend René to anyone looking to improve their French!

René started by offering to begin the session in either French or English, which was less stressful than lessons that immediately started in French. He corrected my mistakes in a non-judgemental manner, and offered plenty of outside resources after I had told him my goals. He spoke at a speed I could understand. Very Helpful.
