When it comes to speaking another language, improving one's self-confidence is paramount. That's why we'll chat about your goals and what you would like to achieve first. I also put a strong emphasis on oral communication and pronunciation as well as interactivity.
From teaching the basics to a 5 year-old Australian girl through to practising oral communication with a group of retired ladies, I have mentored several people with different goals. As a communication professional with a degree in journalism in another language (English) I understand the importance of being supported throughout the learning process.
- 2017-19 / Worked full-time as a Journalist for Sunraysia Daily, Mildura (Victoria).
--> During my time in Mildura, I attended regular 'café conversations' with a local lady who wanted to improve her oral skills.
--> I also did a 'language exchange' with a Mexican student who wanted to learn French. In return, she taught me Spanish.
- 2018 / I attended regular group meeting with Australians wanting to practice their conversational skills over a coffee.
- 2017 / Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Journalism.
- 2015 / Taught a 5 year-old Australian girl the basics of French through fun and interactive games as well as songs.
- 2014 / Moved to Australia from Lyon (France).
Perfect! Marina is an excellent teacher and I am really enjoying learning with her. She adapts the lessons to whatever you are seeking, and provides really helpful tips. I seem to be an aural learner so Marina kindly reads words/phrases into my phone so I can listen to them later and let them sink into my brain (as well as to read them). She also provides little challenges every week to see if I can recall previous lessons - we are both stoked when I get it right! (nearly always thanks to her good teaching), and it's a good reinforcement. Marina charges less than many other tutors, but this does not mean that she isn't just as good. She is probably better! I highly recommend her.
Learning French from (almost) scratch is not easy and Karen has taken up the challenge with determination and a good dose of humour. It's been a pleasure seeing improvement during the past few lessons!
Marina est ma fille ainée. Elle est très à l'écoute et pédagogue.Elle a un très bon contact avec les enfants mais aussi les adultes!
Elle a déjà donné des cours de français à une petite fille de 5 ans en lui apprenant de manière ludique l'alphabet, les lettres et les mots.
Marina est digne de confiance et respectueuse dans ses engagements.
Je la recommande vivement car elle adore sa langue natale (le français) et saura transmettre ses connaissances à l'oral comme à l'écrit!
