Have you always yearned to speak another language?

Has the beauty of the French dialect driven you to learn to speak a Romance language in order to woo loved ones?

Are you simply interested in French culture, cuisine, or life in general?

Allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Madeleine Bien, and I'm offering beginner-intermediate French lessons for 2011.

I am a recent graduate of Western Michigan University with a Bachelors degree in French.

My rates are as follows: $35/1.5 hours, $25/hour, and $15/half hour for tutoring at local libraries in the Detroit area. Group rates may vary.

I have lived in France for a year both as a student and as an English Teaching Assistant in two different regions of France. I will tutor high school level French and under, but can adjust accordingly.

Since 2009, I have taught French to students whose ages range from 7 to 70 years old. I have taught individuals, pairs, classes, and small groups. I enjoy teaching because I am able to share my passion with those around me who are eager to learn. Growing up, I was a self-learner. I purchased books, watched films, and did just about all I could in French in order to keep my level up. I use these methods in my teaching and encourage all my students to spend time at home doing the same things!

Check out the helpful links along the left side of the website to see some of the resources I use on a daily basis, both in and out of lessons. These include online resources, books on, and more.
