My name is Caroline, I’m a native French speaker and I grew up mostly next to Valence, in a small village called Livron in the department of La Drôme. At 18 years old, after getting my A-level I went to the Republic of Ireland to improve my English for a year.
Back then I enrolled in the EVS program (European Voluntary Service). My work consisted in entertaining disabled people in an activity room with the help of other European volunteers. This experience allowed me to not only learn the language of Shakespeare, but also to have the opportunity to discover another culture, different from mine.
Afterwards, I decided to study English in order to become a Language teacher (English and French). After 7 years of studying, in July 2017, I obtained my master’s degree in Linguistics, Literature and History. I’ve been teaching since September 2014 and throughout my experiences I’ve been lucky enough to switch from kindergarten to high school students and adults.
I’m very patient, fun and dynamic with my students. I think kindness and patience is essential if you want to transmit knowledge, whatever the subject might be.
I love traveling, reading, practicing sports (dancing, gymnastics, fitness…), watching movies and TV shows in English and playing board games.
I’m currently teaching to young kids, from the age of 3 to 11 years old in a relaxed way through music, lullabies, activities and famous oral and board games such as “Simon says” and Scrabble. I love teaching French to foreigners and to share my culture with them. I spend a lot of time preparing my courses because I think that learners need well-structured courses and a teacher who knows what they are doing. Empathy and to put yourself in your student’s shoes are necessary ingredients in your recipe for success. That is why I always analyze the needs of the person who requires my help and my goal is to make them progress at their own pace.
