Our Team

Our French Mentors

We carefully select and train each mentor at My French Club and ensure that everyone adheres to the same philosophy.

The interview and selection process is very rigorous, as we only hire the best French mentors. Our mentors feel that they are part of a big family because each one is continuously supported and encouraged to succeed. My French Club provides tremendous French resources at their disposal so that they are equipped with the latest curriculum and best teaching methods.

My French Club is privileged to have a team of 10 French mentors on board.  Their French language skills are excellent and they are experienced in bringing out the best in their students. All of us love to share our passion for the French language when teaching you or your child.

 

Founder’s Story

Bonjour friends! I’m Asma, the founder of My French Club. I’m a social butterfly who loves to help people and share great ideas. People who know me describe me as a friendly, energetic and independent person who loves a good challenge. I’ve been on many adventures, but I can easily say that My French Club is one of my greatest adventures to date.

I was raised in Paris, France and moved to Canada over 15 years ago. It was one of the best decisions I made because I simply adore Canada. I love the atmosphere, the diversity and more importantly, the opportunities we are given to be whoever we want to be!

I grew up in a multilingual family, with my father who speaks 9 languages! It was ordinary for me to hear various dialects and interact with various cultures, which is something that I fully embraced. As you can see, learning new languages is a skill that comes easy to me. One of the best ways to learn a new language is through singing, a technique that my father used in our home. I still remember his old songs he used to sing to us!

I’m mother to 2 wonderful kids –without them, this club would not have manifested. It’s thanks to them that I have become a passionate teacher who collected vast resources about effectively teaching French. My kids inspire me to be a better person and I’m very grateful for them. I feel very blessed to have my family support and encourage me to manage My French Club.

 

Why start My French Club?

Aside from my pure love of the French language, I am very passionate about education and teaching. I have taught French to children and adults since 2001. Before the start of My French Club, I tutored students in various settings, including from my home and community centres. I’m experienced in teaching students on a one-on-one basis and as a group study. I get so much joy out of teaching and helping students reach their goals, and it helps that people constantly tell me how good I am at it!

Initially, I was trained to be a project manager and worked many years in that position. This job taught me how to become a great public speaker and how to be effectively organized. Though I liked being a project manager, teaching French is a strong passion of mine that inevitably led me to start My French Club. At My French Club, we provide a positive learning environment for our students to help them achieve an excellent level of French. I absolutely love helping students learn a new language and reach their full potential, it’s like a new, thrilling adventure each time!
