Our Team

You will be surrounded by experienced teachers specialized in teaching French as a foreign language (FLE) and with all the necessary qualifications to guarantee high quality teaching. They will help you improve your oral and written communication skills and introduce you to French culture and civilization.


The French Academy was founded by two passionate and experienced native teachers who wanted to provide the highest caliber of French Language instruction. They realized that a school was needed in the DC metro area to answer the specific needs of different individuals: adults seeking a tailor-made course, families with children of different ages and bilingual families who are looking for a qualitative French education, and also professionals and businesses, for whom flexibility, individualized curriculum and specific goals are important. In 2015 the French Academy expanded to Baltimore.

We are a small team of about 8 teachers in DC and 3 in Baltimore, striving to provide you a personalized service. We are offering French group classes for adults or children, or flexible one-on-one lessons in person or on Skype.


Our passionate native teachers are highly educated, with years of experience in pedagogic methodology but they also have special expertise in:

  • NGO project development
  • Business, marketing, communication
  • Youth language programs (courses and youth camps)
  • Teaching in public schools
  • French for French Speakers
  • Teaching French to immigrants and refugees
