About Me

Hello, my name is Stéphane. I am half- French, half-American. I was born and raised in Paris. I attended a bilingual school there, before obtaining a B.A. in Comparative Literature from Yale.

I currently reside in the south of France, where I work as a language teacher. I have been teaching full-time for the past 8 years. I have interacted with close to 300 students and taught about 10,000 hours of classes. Although English makes up the bulk of my lessons, I have a fair amount of experience teaching French as well,

I use a structured approach based on books. I figure out your CEFR level , I get you grammar and vocabulary books, we work through them and when we are done I make you take the exam for your level. This ensures that you make concrete progress.

To make classes more fun, I supplement the books with videos, songs, and games.

Because I am perfectly bilingual, I can speak to you like a French native and explain differences between French and English grammar.

If you need specific vocabulary for a job I can accommodate that. I am extremely curious and flexible and can draw from a deep academic and professional background.
I studied economics, medicine and law in college , and I have worked in different fields including banking and government. Moreover, as part of my language teaching, I have interacted with every kind of professional you can think of, including lawyers, doctors, real estate agents, sales managers and CEOs.

I look forward to teaching you French !
