Bonjour, my name is Marion and I am a French native speaker. I was born near Paris and I grew up in different cities in the Champagne Ardenne region.
From a young age, I visited many different regions in the South because I have family there. There are a lot of things to see and a lot of differences in each region. In my mind, my understanding of the French regions makes me an asset. It’s something that I’m excited to bring to my students.
I have a Master in Heritage and Culture. I worked in different sectors: contemporary art center, bookstore, publishing and also community management. After having spent several years searching for what I wanted really to do, it became clear that I wanted to communicate my knowledge and to share it with others. Teaching is a passion for me because it’s transmitting something, bringing something new to someone, and also sometimes helping someone. I’m convinced that encounters in the educational sphere are essential and can guide a person’s life history and create that.
I did a year of teaching in primary school, from 1st to 5th grades. For the past few years, I’ve been specializing in teaching French as a foreign language. Now I teach each day by Skype or Zoom, so that I can have students worldwide. I start with complete beginners (I speak English which is helpful at the beginning) and I lead the students to a level C1 expert.
I truly enjoy communicating my knowledge, I’m very involved in the preparation of my courses. I always take a first step to analyze the difficulties and to find the best ways for each student in order to fill their needs.
After spending 9 months in New York, I lived in Strasbourg. Then I spent more than a year in China working in an Alliance Française. And here I am now in France, near the city of Rocamadour with my husband and my kitten.
