About Me

Bonjour! I am Lauren, a 28-year-old French teacher born in the marvellous city of Bordeaux. I love teaching and learning new languages and I am fluent in French, English, and Spanish.

I am currently learning Italian and Turkish. Being a learner myself, I know how challenging it can be to stay motivated! That's why I take every lesson I give as an opportunity to become a better teacher.

⚠️ Right now I'm interested in working with adults and teenagers aged 14-17 who have a French level of Low-Intermediate (A2-C2) or above.

Why should you pick me to be your French teacher?

🌅 Because images speak louder than words, here is an example of a lesson presentation I designed for my A1 students: https://bit.ly/39zYP4u

In Bordeaux, we have a very neutral French accent, which means I am easy to understand and I will help you achieve the "parfaite" pronunciation. I design my own presentations for the lessons and I will share with you exclusive lists of French movies, books, series, and podcasts. So if you want to know why we love wine so much or to learn some funny slang, start learning with me!

I have been working with all types of students: CEOs, jobseekers, athletes, lawyers etc. Whatever your level is, my method remains the same: cultivate your curiosity and your desire to learn. I build my lessons according to your tastes to speed up your learning process and make it easy and fun (even for grammar). Travels, politics, culture, or science, I am curious about every topic and I always try to tie the content of my lessons to what is going on in the world. This way you won't only learn a language, but you will also expand your general knowledge.

I have visited more than 25 countries and worked in France, Spain, Ecuador, Thailand and Turkey. Through my experiences in the French diplomatic corps, I have learned to adapt to people from very different backgrounds. Whether you want to sound like a true Parisian when ordering a coffee or start a business in Senegal, I will do everything I can to help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

I hold a Master's degree in International affairs and Economics from Sciences Po Bordeaux. Throughout my career, I had to pass highly selective exams and job interviews. I can provide you with excellent tips to write an impressive cover letter in French, to prepare you for exams, or to get you ready for an interview. I am also available for document correction (proofreading, translation and style suggestions).

🙌 Nothing makes me happier than seeing my students succeed!
