ExperienceI am a French native who has always been fascinated by languages. I like to impart to others the knowledge I have. I use basic study skills to teach.
I have been tutoring French since 2011.
I teach French at all levels (beginning, intermediate and advanced) to kids, teens and adults.
I meet face-to-face in the Conejo Valley (Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, Newbury Park, Simi Valley, Camarillo, Moorpark, Woodland Hills, Porter Ranch, Calabasas, Northridge, Oak Park.) and online when elsewhere.
Prior to becoming a French tutor I have been a marketing manager and an executive secretary.
I have taught administrative skills to people at work: mainly basic organizing and proofreading.
Earlier on I taught kids to read in a matter of weeks. I taught others to swim and drive.
I'm attentive and persistent.

Brigitte is a great tutor. She tutored my 10th grade daughter in French 2. She is patient, helpful and I would highly recommend her!
I cannot adequately describe or express the PERFECT tutoring skills exhibited by Madam Brigitte. Madam built a study plan for my daughter which paralleled my daughter's high school texts. The study plan focused on my daughter's weakness areas and Madam actually pulled her higher in performance. My daughter now has an A in French. This is very important since my daughter wants to be an American journalist living in France in a few years. As I said, I cannot adequately describe how exceptional a tutor Madam is.
Brigitte was a great French tutor, and I would definitely return to her for more help in the future. I wanted a tutor so I could continue improving my own French language, and I saw a notable difference since I began working with her. I recommend her for both children and adults!
Brigitte is wonderful. She was very patient, professional and understanding. She helped my son pass a very difficult French class online. I would recommend her to anyone needing any level of help with French. I will use her whenever the need arises again. Brigitte is also very friendly and kind.
Brigitte helped our daughter for several tutor sessions before the start of school. The lessons and engagement were helpful to bring my daughter back up to speed for her French level IV class after a full summer off. The tutoring was well worth it, since it lowered our daughter's stress and helped her start the class not as rusty as she has been in previous years. Brigitte has been very diligent in her follow-up.
I really enjoyed my lesson with Brigitte. She created a pleasant mood so that I felt very relaxed trying to speak French. I plan to continue these sessions. I am so glad that I found her. We have a class this evening.
