French Teacher Alliance FrançaiseI worked for about two years with the Alliance Française, both in Chandigarh and New Delhi, India, mainly with adults who wanted to learn French for professional reasons (many of them worked or wanted to get a position in call centres, where French was rather rare skill). This was probably one of the hardest, yet most rewarding of my professional experiences. Students were beginners and learning was hard, but they were motivated. It taught me a lot: patience, creativity, care, etc.

Vocal Coach FreelanceIf anything, the understanding of basic acoustic principles gave me tools to teach pronunciation. Additionally, mixing language and singing lessons has proven very efficient because learning and singing a song allow students to deeply internalize phonetics and grammar patterns.
