I am a native French speaker who is also fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. Over the years, I have been offering tutoring to adults to learn the French language and classical piano at beginner levels.
I specialize on teaching effective learning techniques online (using FaceTime) and on helping my students acquire a more native-sounding accent in French, an important skill to gain confidence and practice in communicating in French. In piano, I focus on getting a good sense of rhythm and playing techniques, which are essential foundations for further progress in classical piano skills. I am available to teach on weekdays and weekends.
I initially studied academic philosophy at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) and trained in classical piano at the McGill Conservatory of Music (Montreal, Canada). I completed a MRes in Speech, Language and Cognition at UCL (London, UK) with Distinction in 2015. I am currently based in Canada and working on a documentary film.
Genevieve is very enthusiastic and I have been making great progress with her in the last month. I always look forward to our weekly lessons, and she has made learning French fun and interesting.
Genevieve is a fantastic tutor and a pleasure to work with!
