My name is Lucille. French native speaker with a Master Degree in teaching French as a Foreign Language.
I speak fluent English, currently learning Spanish and can have basic conversations in German.
I've found that teaching is a great fit for my personality, I enjoy helping people and I also love to learn from them. 😋
Me as a Teacher
My 3 words to describe my vision for teaching are: kindness, patience and indulgence.
Last year, I was teaching French from A1 to B2/C1 levels in a High School in Las Palmas, Spain.
As I love linguistic, I will try to understand the differences and commun points between our languages. Why? Best way to try to put myself in your place in the learning path.

I love learning French with Lucille! We always manage to have a quite fun and chill atmosphere, which is crucial for me since I have anxiety when it comes to new languages. But because of Lucille's style I always feel encouraged and do not overthink it if I make mistakes!
We follow a mix of structured lessons with grammar, vocabulary and audio, but slowly also start to have more free conversations. Which is a great feeling when learning a new language ☺️ All in all I am more than happy with these classes and cannot wait to make more progress in the upcoming time!

I've been with Lucille for 6 months now and can safely say my knowledge and feeling of the language has improved immensely (a side product is that it's also making my English better, and I'm already British!). Learning to speak is a slow process and it is frustrating, some days are better than others, but with Lucille you can always be sure you'll learn something new. She is a gem and wonderful at what she does so don't hesitate. I can't wait to see where I am at the end of the next 6 months! Merci beaucoup for making something I've dreamed of doing possible.

Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.
Teachers can change lives. Meeting Lucille changed mine. She mixes correction and challenge in a way that is both fluid and effective.
It is important to have fun while learning. Progress is therefore by leaps and bounds. Now I dream in French.
Mieux que mille jours d'étude assidue est un jour avec un grand professeur.
Les enseignants peuvent changer des vies. Rencontrer Lucille a changé la mienne. Elle mélange la correction et le défi de manière à la fois fluide et efficace.
Il est important de s'amuser en apprenant. L'avancement est donc à pas de géant. Maintenant je rêve en français.

Today I had my 20th lesson with Lucille. Conversations with her are always interesting and fun. Lucille is so easy to talk to about any subject. She is always well prepared and knows exactly what I need to improve. Lucille is an excellent teacher, patient, kind and encouraging. I’m very happy with my progress so far and I recommend her without hesitation.

I have been been taking classes with Lucille for over a year now and I am so happy with my progression.
Lucille is a motivating teacher who is able to adjust her teaching to my needs, providing a flexible, relaxed and comfortable learning environment. She has so much knowledge and understanding of the French language and offers a great variety in her classes.
I look forward to my French classes every week and I would recommend her to everyone who wants to learn to become sufficient in speaking, writing and understanding French.
