Bonjour, my name is Samantha, I am 34 years old. French from my dad‘s side and Portuguese from my mum’s. I was born in Paris. I grew up in a city near from Paris in a bicultural family. I have been living in Spain, Ecuador and now Argentina so I speak Spanish fluently.
I got my master’s degree in Spanish Literature and Civilization with an option French as a Foreign Language (FFL) in Paris. I worked as a french teacher in different places: in student’s homes, in academies, in schools and now by Zoom.
I started teaching French in 2011 in Spain. Then, I spent four year in Ecuador working in an Alliance Française and in a French school. For the last six years, I had various experiences as a teacher: I taught university students in Buenos Aires, and I taught as a pre-primary and primary French teacher.
I naturally specialized in children teaching and provide guided play and structured lessons for young learners. However, I also enjoy teaching to adults. I like the different dynamics found in lessons according to the different ages and learning objectives. During the classes, I focus particularly on pronunciation because it’s essential for gaining a comfort level and confidence. I also have experience in preparing the students to pass the official exams from A2 to C2.
I really want to help students learn my language and integrate foreign environments. Remote teaching helps me discover and learn new things about others countries and cultures.
I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to have visited several countries in America Latina and Europe. I also love yoga, listening to music, reading, learning about philosophy & psychology. For me, it’s very important to use art and culture to teach French.
It would be my pleasure to help you through your journey in learning French and discovering the French culture.
À bientôt !
