French with Jes
I’m a French Language Coach, and a Creative Director residing in Quebec since 2001, now sharing my time between Montreal, Vancouver, New York, and Mexico. I grew up in the French Caribbean islands (Haïti), and lived between the Americas. With over 10 years I experience teaching French, I supported individuals working with organizations such as The Montreal Chamber of Commerce, a global design experience and production agency, literacy centers, and privately.My specialization is to help leaders, academics, professionals, and creative minds to thrive at work and in life.
As a French Coach, I bring my cross-cultural, professional, and personal experience to the craft of teaching. I’ve acquired coaching and mentoring in business, in the arts, and in sports. As a teen, I explored Southern Ontario attending an arts camp, and travelled playing competitive tennis before establishing in Montreal to study. I hold a Teaching Certificate, a Professional MA in Project Management, and a BA in Fine Arts. In my role as a Creative Director, I like partnering with businesses and creative entrepreneurs to offer consulting, artwork, and strategies designed to build, ignite and add value to their brand, and innovate.
Why COLOURS & SOUND?
To me, COLOURS sums up the varied experiences that a person accumulates and develops in relation to cultural, personal, and professional journeys. SOUND is the unique expression through which a person chooses to present themselves in the world. Deciding to learn a new language broadens our view of the world, and of others. It makes us more knowledgeable, which makes us feel sound, and that can create new opportunities for ourselves. Learning French with me will not only allow you to implement this mindset, but also help you develop intentional interactions in French. For you, I hope that confidence, and ease shine through when you connect with others in French.
