A little about me

You might know me from my Instagram account, where I have over 22K followers.

I grew up in a French-speaking part of Quebec.

At the age of 12, I discovered that I could learn a language on my own, and I did so with English and Italian.

From the age of 20, I learned Spanish, German and Portuguese.

I then pursued a career in web marketing.

But in my late thirties, that passion returned.

I went back to university to study modern languages.

For a few years, I gave over 3000 private lessons on Italki to hundreds students, with a five-star rating. Here’s what some of my clients have said about my courses

My passion is to teach Quebec French the same way I learned languages

That is, through reading and active listening.

I base my methods on Stephen Krashen’s Comprehensible Input theory.  I am a firm believer that the human brain is wired to learn languages through comprehension— not through memorization and the study of grammar rules (although those have a place!).
