I come from Paris. I studied English, French literature, history and marketing. When I arrived in San Diego in 2001, it struck my mind that there was no good school teaching French as a second language to adults, so I decided to create From English to French in 2002 and it has been a success!
Besides teaching French, I manage the school, make sure that every one is full satisfied with their experience here. We teach about 150 students per week so you can imagine that it is a lot of work and also a lot of fun.
Like any French woman, I love cooking and my quiches and tarts that I make for our annual Christmas party are always popular! I also love gardening and playing the piano.
Come and learn French with us, you will see it is a real blast!
I come from Paris where I was born. I studied law and French literature, served my country in the Navy then worked in an Insurance Firm before moving to Dan Diego for love.
French is really part of my DNA as there have been famous writers and journalists in my family for several generations. I am a real history buff so please challenge me on the French Revolution, Napoleon or WWII! I love reading books even in English and cooking. As a main hobby, I have been making models since I was a kid. I love my native country and I am eager to share with you the magic of its mysteries and beauty. I love teaching the level 1 students and I am the only one here teaching the Pronunciation class!
Bonjour ! I was born in Deauville, in the beautiful French region of Normandie. I was also fortunate to live in Lyon, Nice and Paris.
I first came to San Diego in 2009 as an exchange student. I completed training in Translation & Interpretation, Communications and Education. I first joined From English To French in 2014. I love teaching because I get to meet students from all ages, levels and backgrounds. I am also the school's Marketing Director, which is a role I really enjoy because it allows me to share my passion for my native language and culture through our newsletter, Facebook page and more.On my days off, I like to practice yoga, cook and spend time outdoors with my husband and my dog.
I cannot wait to help you achieve your French goals .... A bientôt !
My name is Anne and I am from Brittany, from a small town between Saint-Malo and Rennes. I went to university in Paris where I studied Chinese and French as a Second Language. After I graduated, I went to China to teach French. I lived and worked in Tianjin, where I met my husband, who was born in San Diego. After 4 years, we decided to move here.
I started working for From English to French back in 2011, and then took a break to raise my daughter and son. While away, I loved being home with my kids, but I missed teaching my students. So I'm very excited to be part of the team again and look forward to sharing my experiences and knowledge with you!
I was born and raised in Orleans, on the Loire River, South of Paris. I then lived in the beautiful French island of La Reunion (in the Indian Ocean), in Clermont-Ferrand (that’s in the Auvergne Region, in the center of France), and I have always spent my summer vacations in a small Burgundy village near Cluny and Lyon, where my family is originally from. I worked overseas for a long time, mostly in East Africa, and this is how I met my husband (who is from Denver, Colorado) in Somalia. Last year, we decided it was time for a change, and we moved to San Diego! It has been a great pleasure to teach French at From English to French: the students are fun and friendly, and I am learning a lot about San Diego and all kinds of other topics through our animated conversations… in French! I love that I get to spend time helping people discover the beautiful French language, speaking about France, history, culture and of course food!
My name is Jean-Baptiste, I was born in France near the city of Lyon, which is the second biggest city in France. I have a Masters Degree in History. I've been working for the past two years as a French and History teacher in high school in France. I 've been here, in San Diego, for 10 months. My wife and I came here because of the teaching opportunities at the San Diego French American School. We each have positions- my wife as a History teacher and myself as a part time French teacher. This is a rewarding experience for me, and I really enjoy working with people with very diverse backgrounds and culture. I'm so glad to start a similar adventure in Sophie's school with motivated students ! Travelling is one of my hobbie, I also enjoy surfing and hiking around SD on my spare time.
