  • Marine Vanlandeghem Gillespie


              Based in Fairbanks, Alaska - possibility to give tutor via Zoom,  "I have had the pleasure of giving French lessons for years, in France and here in Alaska. I have worked with adults, students (undergraduate and graduate), and children. My goal is to share my language and my culture with someone interested in learning it. I love teaching in a fun and educational way, I have a lot of resources to help you out and it's definitely easier to learn with a native speaker.  I want you to know something very important: in my class, there is no judgment and no pressure, it's all about learning while having fun, loving the language and improving your skills. I will be available to follow you all and adjust to your progress."

  • Joëlle-Audrey Zollen


             "28 years general practitioner, Cameroonian we have two national languages French and English. I studied in French and have a solid foundation in English. I teach French courses for all levels regardless of age (children and adults) according to your objectives. Newly installed in Anchorage, I am available for your needs."
