- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Fees can be negotiated according to student needs and duration of time spent. i.e. weekly lessons, individual, group, Skype/FaceTime.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I first talk with the prospective student about his/her language background, his /her goals., his/her learning style and interests. I also have him/her take an evaluation that gives me a first idea. Ultimately , during the two first lessons or so, we do speaking, listening , reading and writing activities that really determine the level of my new student. I then can design a curriculum , with the student's goals in mind.
- 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, 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 to communicate with other Spanish speaking employees to create camaraderie within the corporate structure.
