Bienvenue. I’m Léa Tirard-Hersant and I’m a French teacher. You can practice French conversation with me via 1-1 video sessions. You can also use my published study materials. A bientôt ! Contact me here.

My Method

Famous linguists and educators inspire me everyday in my teaching. They’re the famous Michel Thomas, the visionary Rudolf Steiner and the notorious Maria Montessori. I’m also inspired by the work of popular bloggers like Olly Richards and Steve Kauffman. Last but not least, my greatest inspiration is you my students themselves.

My Mission

Ma langue est ma patrie, as we say in French. My language is my homeland. As a teacher my mission is to help students feel more at home in the French language. Do you have a particular learning objective for 2022? Are you worried that you may lose your French if you don’t practice it on a regular basis? Practice French with me! Just look at my teacher’s schedule, find a time that’s good for you, and parlons français.
