Introduction: Being French does not necessarily make someone a good teacher able to pass on the knowledge of the language. I am a professional teacher, and I have been trained to apply efficient pedagogical methods, to structure different types of curricula, and to work with all types of students. My goal is to provide you with the basics that will allow you to build your own sentences, and not only to repeat pre-made expressions. I also use a very wide range of material and settings to teach (literature, conversation groups, cartoons, sketches, grammar lessons, flashcards, games, writing workshops, mini-plays...). You will never be bored! Interacting with very different people every day, of all ages, all cultures, all backgrounds, and passing on the French culture!

I knew I was going to spend a month in Paris so wanted to really work on my high school french to get up to a competent level. Marlene was perfect. I have gone to Paris and was very pleasantly surprised to see how well my tutoring lessons had helped me. Marlene's attitude is excellent, she is a pleasure to work with, and she is an excellent teacher. Highly recommend.

My daughter had an excellent first lesson which exceeded our expectations. She felt much more confident with the French language after just one lesson and is excited to continue learning with Ms. Mousseux

As an advanced French student, I have been working with Marlène for over nine months. She's a very knowledgeable teacher versed in a great variety of subjects. She's always enthusiastic, dynamic and genuinely interested in helping me with my specific needs. She has kept me interested by showing me that there is always something new to discover and that learning a foreign language is a continuous and never ending process. Marlène is by far one of the best teacher I ever had.

I last took French classes in college, a good 8 years ago. This year, I had a work trip to France, and needed to work with clients who did not speak much English. Unfortunately, after so many years of not using the language, I had no confidence in holding conversation in French. Thankfully I found Marlene, and she helped me re-discover the foundation I had as an Intermediate student. Marlene was always well-prepared for every class, proactively coming up with phrases, vocabulary, and situational conversations that were relevant to my industry and my role. Being intelligent and insightful, her suggestions were spot-on: I used all the phrases and words we had practiced! Marlene is a true professional, and provides excellent value for the personalized attention and customized lesson plan for each individual. If not for the fact that I'm moving out of the country this year, I would definitely be continuing classes with Marlene. I recommend her without hesitation! Merci, Marlene!
