As a former scientist, I have a genuine passion for understanding the world surrounding us. I have never stopped being a researcher, I just switched my field of study from Biology to the French language. Now I am dedicating my time and energy to assist people learning French - making sure it’s easy and fun!
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
We will work from concrete situations instead of computer translations - which are often unclear or incorrect - so you use your brain before your computer.
I will give you technical pronunciation tips and tell you original French stories.
I will not stuff your brain with useless grammar information, let's just speak french!

Adele is amazing - I have been working with her for almost 2 years on a weekly basis and she is remarkably adept at keeping each session highly engaging! She is also super flexible on adopting new technologies and even adopted Notion to help me remember my commonly made mistakes and new vocabulary. I would recommend her to students at all levels of fluency.

I highly recommend Adele as a French language tutor for any student at any level. She makes every class productive, interesting, and fun. She has a wonderful knack for tailoring her instruction to the level and interests of each student. Everyone learns differently, and Adele is a master at finding the best way to click with each student.

I've been Adele's student for over a year now and hope to continue for foreseeable future. The focus of our lessons has been primarily conversational French as I get most of the vocabulary and grammar from apps.
Adele's lessons are uniquely amazing because Adele is an endlessly curious, well-versed and versatile person, who is also a talented teacher. Adele is passionate about helping her students improve. It is easy these days to find a qualified native speaker to practice, yet it is hard to meet a teacher who would be invested in her students. So, if you are looking for a teacher who will have patience for whatever level of French you've got and who will challenge you to go out of your comfort zone and constantly try to do better, and if you are comfortable with not following a traditional language learning curriculum,
Adele would be a great fit.
