If you are looking for a more individualized approach that is tailored to your needs, look no further. I will pace the sessions to suit your learning style and we will make sure to explore the concepts that you lack in greater depth. My private sessions will also involve intensive oral practice to guarantee faster progress.
I am a Native French speaker with a passion for teaching and seeing my students progress. I have over 10 years of experience teaching and tutoring this beautiful language. I currently teach French for a language school, Dojo Linguistique and I have taught the academic curriculum in Québec and British Columbia in various schools. I also teach TEFaQ, TCFQ, TFI classes. I was the French translator for the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015™ National Organising Committee in Vancouver.
The major competitive advantage that I have over other French teachers is that I am fully bilingual. This will ensure that there is absolutely no language barrier between us - this is crucial for your progress.
My sessions are fun, stimulating, engaging, and interactive, with a focus on theory but with a high priority on conversational learning. From experience, my students and I feel that the best way to learn French is simply to practice speaking it. I have experience with teaching children as young as 7 and adults from all ages and backgrounds.
I can help you whether you're preparing for the TEFaQ, TCFQ, TFI, preparing a trip to a French speaking destination, or simply want to add a language to your tongue.

He employs a variety of methods to keep things interesting and to create a very comprehensive and effective learning experience.
He has made learning French fun, I truly look forward to every lesson with him.

Jordan Guindon, 36
Planning and Development-City of Burnaby
Owner-East Van Barbell Club
"Alex has been a great tutor for my 5 year old daughter. He established a rapport with her almost immediately and he made his lessons interactive and fun and developmentally appropriate for her age. She began with basically no French and within two months, she learned basic French vocabulary, the ABCs, numbers, colours, greetings, and was even formulating sentences.
I highly recommend Alex as a French tutor!"

"Alex is an amazing french teacher, his lessons helped me ace my TCFQ exam in less than 6 weeks, he was very resourceful, patient and encouraging. The sessions were tailored to my needs, were really fun, covered a wide range of topics and went by really quickly. Alex helped me become a more confident french speaker and I would recommend his services to anyone who wants to learn french or just needs to gain more confidence when speaking the language."
Process Support R&D at Veolia
"I've had a great experience taking French classes with Alex. He has in-depth knowledge of the language, quickly adapted to my learning style, but above all exhibits a high degree of patience while teaching. Learning a new language as an adult can be daunting and slow paced, however Alex makes the classes fun and interactive. He truly exhibits a passion for teaching and cares about the progress of his students. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn French!"
