Bonjour! Salut! Moi, c'est Matthias. I am a certified French teacher from La Sorbonne University in Paris, France with 12 years of teaching experience.
I travelled around the world during my studies. I am currently working in the Philippines, where I have been teaching in different international languages schools and universities. Moreover, I have also been teaching online for the past 5 years. I have taught more than 5000 hours of online courses to more than 600 students between 8 and 78 years old from 40 different nationalities. I love my job and I love teaching students from all over the world. This is such a great opportunity to share my culture and my love for the French language.
I customize the classes for each of my students depending on their level, their needs, their interests and their objectives. I meticulously prepare each class using adapted and certified educational materials that I select for each student and I constantly offer extra exercices and activities as homework in between classes upon request from my students. I offer not only general French classes, but also conversational classes for intermediate and advanced levels. I also offer French exam preparation courses for students who are planning to take the DELF or TEF exams.
I am determined to deliver excellence and to help each of one of my students improve and reach their goals. I can teach students from a wide range of levels from beginner to advanced and bilingual levels.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you. Please don't hesitate to book a class with me and let's customize a study plan for you to reach your objectives!
CLASSES POLICY: Please understand that I only allow only 2 classes with last-minute cancellations (less than 24h prior to the lesson). Beyond that I wouldn't be able to continue classes with that student. Indeed, please understand that last-minute cancellations are harmful for the teacher as we don't have enough time to find another student for the time slot initially booked.
Beside if ever a student is late beyond 30 mins for a prebooked session, the session will automatically be considered as completed and the teacher won't be required to maintain the session open after waiting 30 mins.
Thank you for your understanding and happy learning! :)
