My name is Céline and I am a French native teacher from France with more than 12 years of experience as a teacher and a Master degree in French language and literature from UBC. I am also a former French instructor at UBC. I am very passionate about learning and teaching languages. So far I have learned English, Korean and Spanish! I am now working on my Japanese. I also love music, reading (my favourite author is Proust!) and travelling. In the future, I would love visit Japan and south asian countries!!
I am someone who is very enthusiastic, motivated and passionate about teaching languages. I am also very patient and can adapt to all ages and levels. I can help students to achieve their learning goals by focusing on their level, interests and needs. Whether you want to learn French for your own pleasure or preparing for an exam (such as DELF, DALF, TEF, TEFAQ, TCF, TFI, AP and SAT), I will be happy to assist you in reaching your goals !

*My work experience*
I worked as a French Instructor at private institutions, Alliance Française and at University of British Columbia. I have also worked as an examiner for French Provincial Langue 12 Examination. I have more than 12 years of teaching experience as a french tutor and 6 years of experience in proof-reading, editing and translation.
My teaching methodology is purely based on the Individual learning style of each student. Engagement with the students interests, creating a passion for the subject, and encouraging an interactive, hands on approach to learning have always benefited my students. I like to integrate audio-video materials to stimulate an interactive learning environment. My classes are also well structured and I adopt a thematic approach, encouraging the students to work on various topics.
