Introduction: ¡Hola! Bonjour! So, you want to learn French or Spanish and feel that you are really learning to communicate in a new language? And you are serious and enthusiastic about it? I am Nicole, your teacher. I am a licensed French and Spanish teacher, native of Paris (oui!oui!)and near native speaker of Spanish after living 7 years in Colombia. I love my profession and I greatly enjoy seeing my students speaking and understanding French or Spanish. In my classes , you will learn the kind of language that is actually spoken in French or Spanish -speaking countries. You will have fun while growing personally and cognitively. Based in the Chicago area, I teach remotely using Zoom, Google Classroom, Edpuzzle and other great platforms. If you live in the Chicago North Shore area, we can discuss the option of in-person classes. Together, we will build the language skills you need for conversation, travel, career advancement, self-improvement, academic achievement (middle school, high school, AP French, AP Spanish, college courses) or corporate international business. Throughout the years, I have brought many students to become fluent in a relaxed, engaging, yet well structured learning environment. My method is lively, memorable and creative. I expose my students to the real-life and culturally-relevant language. This approach makes the language come alive and relate to the students' own experiences. It will encourage you to feel confident and spontaneous which will allow you to quickly progress. Lessons and tutoring sessions are tailored according to your goals, skills, interests, and learning style. My instruction focuses on conversation while at the same time teaching grammar in context and expanding vocabulary. If you are a beginner, you will be able to talk about your day and interests after only a few classes. If you are an intermediate speaker, you will improve your language skills towards fluency. And if you are an advanced student, you will acquire near native fluency and deeper understanding of the culture. You will have your own virtual classroom available at your convenience, and regularly fed with customized and engaging materials to practice. The homework I assign after each class will allow you to reflect and build upon what you have learned . I am looking forward to set up our first class and start together the fun and rewarding journey to fluency in French or Spanish!

French lessons with Nicole is going very well! She is patient and extremely knowledgeable with the French language. Her course lessons are very good with quizzes to help you master the content.

Merci beaucoup, Nicole!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fee is $50 per hour. I also offer money-saving packages of 5 or 10 classes at a discounted price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Through email or phone, I get to know my new student's goals, learning style and interests. If the student is a complete beginner, we start learning basics in a very efficient and engaging way, using a wide array of materials. I thrive in passing on confidence and enthusiasm for the language. For advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced learners, I evaluate their language skills through communicative activities . This step gives me a first idea of their level, their strengths and weaknesses. I then can build my custom curriculum for each student.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Masters in History from the Sorbonne University in Paris and a Bachelor Degree in Geography from the University Paris 7, both located in Paris. I taught History and Geography in France and at the Lycée Français of Bogota, Colombia. In 2013 ,I obtained my Professional Teaching License for French K-12 and Spanish at National Louis University. I have been teaching French and Spanish in different settings: Middle schools, high schools, private classes , corporate (Shure Inc.) in private setting with individual and small group classes, corporate , for individuals and groups of employees. I've held classes for corporate clients to learn Spanish in order to communicate with other Spanish speaking employees and create camaraderie within the corporate structure. I have taught history and geography to middle school and high school students in Paris. I also taught at the Lycée Français in Bogota. Upon landing in the United States, I obtained my Professional Teaching License at National Louis University in 2013
