French Reflections

"Enseigner une langue c'est proposer un voyage, l'apprendre c'est partir." Kalfon

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that a mutually caring, trusting, and respectful relationship between student and teacher is the key to success. As a teacher, my role is first to help and encourage my students to reach their full potential by integrating different teaching models and strategies and second, to give them the opportunity to express their creativity, develop their self-confidence, sense of pride and nurture their love and interest of the French language.
