Salut! I'm a Congo native; French was my language of instruction for 19 years prior to relocating to an English-speaking country. Lingala is my native tongue, and I speak and teach Swahili as well. I enjoy holding virtual coffee chats in French for advanced level students (have been doing this for about 3 years now). I also teach private (one-on-one) beginners and intermediate French, Swahili, and Lingala classes. Though I'm somewhat of an introvert, I love the outdoors and meeting new people from all over the world. Don't hesitate to reach out to me for more information!
We hear you...
On y va! Let's go!
Thank you for your interest in my tutoring services. I take pride in working to guide my students through the discovery and exploration of the French language and culture. For my virtual learning sessions, I typically offer three types of learning packages for advanced, intermediate, and upper-intermediate:
All of my advanced level courses focus on conversational French. We focus on perfecting the use of passé simple, the passive and active forms and how to use direct and indirect speech through reading exercises. We also will watch videos, listen to French radio, TV, and music!
If you are a beginner's student, then you don't need to take the proficiency test. Please proceed to take the placement test prior to reaching out. A member of our team will follow up with you upon receipt of your submission.
I look forward to working with you!

“I have been taking French for the last 8 years now and I've even lived in about 2 Francophone countries now. I really wanted to advance my French reading, writing, and speaking skills to a level where I would be more qualified for certain jobs in International Development. My constant virtual chats with Stella helps me to be consistent and my French has definitely improved immensely.”
