Elodie is from Paris. After teaching French and Latin in high school for 10 years, she decided she wanted to find a way to also put in good use her long lasting love of English and moved to Melbourne.

As an experienced teacher, Elodie knows well how to adapt her teaching to her students and to find motivating but also useful resources. She can help you to begin your journey of learning French or to improve it while sharing her knowledge of French culture and history. She can also help you to prepare for exams (VCE, DELF…), or to improve your fluency. Looking for new tricks of effective communication has always been a hobby of hers!

If you love Paris, literature, science-fiction, fantasy, animated but always respectful debates, you will for sure enjoy your lessons with Elodie.

Elodie is available for online lessons only.

Christine,

French tutor

Originally from Paris, Christine grew up in different parts of France such as in the Alps, in Chambery and in Angers. Even though Christine left France a long time ago and lived in Germany for many years, she is very close to her country and its culture. Teaching her native language is a way of being an “ambassador” as she likes to include important points of tradition, etiquette and history in her lessons.

Since then, Christine has taught French to a wide range of students, including business-people and children. She is a very dynamic and patient person who loves to add a little bit of humour and fun to her lessons.

Topics such as food and wine (she taught cooking classes for 20 years) but also music (Indie and Classic), cinema and literature are Christine’s favorites and she is always keen to include them in her lessons either through texts, mini- documentaries or films online.

Christine is available for online and face to face lessons.

Alexandra,
French tutor

Alexandra is originally from France, and has lived in Dijon (like the mustard that you may know!)

 

She has always enjoyed helping and teaching others. As a child she was teaching her dolls and as a teenager she was tutoring migrant children. She, then, logically decided to study education in school and  obtained a Master’s degree in teaching French as a foreign language.

Since then, Alexandra has taught on 3 continents to hundreds of students of various nationalities. She is as comfortable with beginners as advanced students and has worked with children, teenagers and adults. 

She has also been an examiner for the TEF, TEFAQ and TEF Canada exams and can prepare students for these exams as well as the TCF, GCSE and A-level exams.

 

Alexandra likes her classes to be a space of kindness and positivity.  She enjoys looking for new, fun and authentic resources to use in the classroom - every time she reads something, she wonders how she could use it in the classroom!

 

 Alexandra is available for online classes only.

Marion was born in France but she is from everywhere! 
She has spent a few years living in Paris and in the south of France but lived most of life overseas: in Hong Kong, Germany, Czech Republic and  Syria. She is now finally settling in Australia. 
Having spent so many years in different countries, she learnt to appreciate different cultures and cherish her own.

She started tutoring while living in Syria as an after school job. She has decided that it is something she wants to do as her main job and she has been working as a French teacher for the past 2 years. From beginners to advanced levels she understands how to personalise a lesson to make it accessible and enjoyable for any levels. 
She is also interested in teaching children as she is very creative and like crafts. She believes mixing teaching and craft is a great way to learn and teach.

Marion takes teaching seriously but can only do it well if both her and her students are having a good time! She loves travelling, reading, movies and always enjoys a good debate about any topic.

Marion is available for online lessons only.

Lucie, a French native speaker from Tours (the inhabitants of Tours are renowned for speaking the "purest" form of French!), founded The French Workshop in 2013.

 

Since then, Lucie has taught French to many people in Melbourne, from beginners to advanced speakers, from individual to group lessons. She can teach French to children, high school students and adults starting from scratch, as well as help students prepare for exams (VCE, IB, DELF, DALF…) and stay motivated.

 

Being a foreigner herself, Lucie understands that learning a new language takes a lot of practice and also patience. That's why her lessons are always varied, enjoyable and suit each student's needs.

 

Lucie uses real French materials like newspapers, novels, songs etc and encourages students to speak in French as much as possible, allowing them to speak like a true French person. Teaching funny French expressions and popular words is her specialty!

Lucie is available for online lessons and also for face to face lessons in Williamstown.
