Hi everyone! My name is Sebastien. I'm a certified French teacher. I am originally from France, but in 2014 I decided to move to Colombia where I currently live and work. I hold the DAEFLE (Diploma in Teaching French as a Foreign Language). I have a good level of English and speak Spanish fluently. I consider myself a calm, patient, attentive and flexible person. I love to travel ! In an increasingly connected world, discovering new languages and new cultures are aspects that seem fundamental to me!
Concerning my professional experience, I worked in different language institutes from 2014 to 2020. Since 2020, I have been working as a private online FLE teacher. In addition, all of this has given me the opportunity to work with different audiences, mainly adults and teenagers, with different objectives:
- study in a French-speaking country.
- work in a French-speaking country.
- take a French exam (DELF / TCF)
- go sightseeing in a French-speaking country.
- pleasure in learning a new language.
I adapt my lessons to your French level, to your experience with learning French and to your objectives. Do you want to travel, study or work in a French-speaking country? Certify your level of French? Learn a language for fun? I will prepare my lessons according to your expectations and your objectives so that your learning process is a real pleasure and not an obligation!
My methodology is based on COMMUNICATION and ACTION, and is oriented towards learning grammar, vocabulary and phonetics through authentic documents. Knowing how to conjugate the past tense is good! But knowing how to use it to tell a friend what you did last weekend is better! The objective of my courses is that you can communicate in real life situations through different comprehension and production activities (oral and written).

Very helpful lesson as Sebastien is able to notice where am missing big chunks of basic information that I haven't seen before and bring it forward very clearly.

There's a big difference between a seasoned instructor versus an amateur. Sebastien knows his craft as an educator. He is well aware the pitfalls that learners tend to fall into, as well as precise, efficient ways to address them.

Sebastian is a great tutor!! He’s very patient and nice, makes you feel comfortable, and always has a lesson plan. He picks up on your level and works on the skills you ask him to. I love practicing French with him :)
