native tutor






trial lesson with me



I am a native French teacher online from Normandy, France.

I can help you improve your pronunciation, reading and listening skills. And, of course, you will be well prepared for the oral part of the exam – speaking so much French, and quickly, that you will annoy your parents with the new, ‘secret’ language!

You will also learn the French that is used in everyday life as well as popular expressions or idioms, so you don’t sound only like a classroom robot !!

Even though the AP French exam doesn’t have directly grammatical questions, I can drill grammar points if needed, in a fun and positive way, to help you feel confident in all tenses. We will conquer the subjunctive with jokes !!

To pass the AP French exam, you need to know about French culture. France is my country, and I will help you to understand the French customs, traditions and way of life.

I offer a unique perspective as a French teacher and student myself of culture and languages, as my passion lies in always learning how to best continue teaching. I study online myself with native teachers of English and Bulgarian – so I know that it works !

With me, you will be sure of your abilities in French and you will be ready to not only pass the exam, but score highly so you can get the most out of university. Save your parents money, please !!

I teach French via Skype, Zoom with humor, so you will progress quickly while having fun, besides I will be happy to familiarize you with French jokes!

My style of tutoring, for this exam as well as for the French exam DELF, is full of positive encouragement.

The AP test is timed, and this is one of the greatest challenges for most students, but after classes with me, you will be relaxed and confident, and likely beating the clock with much time to spare !

Your first assignment now is to contact me, in French of course!


I teach via Skype, WhatsApp, Messenger, Zoom, and through other communication methods.

Thanks to Skype, you can prepare for the AP French exam anywhere and anytime, saving time.

Additionally, screen sharing is possible, and you’ll have access to all the necessary documents for the test.

You can also record the lesson, which is very convenient for further independent work after the session.

My son (a teenager) has been training with Gurvan since February of this year. He moved to a new school where the second foreign language is French. My son (almost from scratch) needs to catch up this year with his classmates who have been learning the language for four years now. And he does very well with Gurvan. And most importantly, my son is interested in studying with Gurvan, who knows how to approach children. We are very glad that we found such a wonderful teacher :)

Je voudrais recommander 5* Gurvan comme le professeur de français! J'aime beaucoup son enthousiasme et ses activités durant ses leçons :)) I highly recommend Gurvan as a French Teacher! If you want increase your language fast and with humour --> 100% Gurvan :)) Очень рекомендую занятия! Гурман с легкостью и юмором проводит каждое занятия по французскому. Это всегда большое удовольствие общаться с Гурваном на разные темы! С уверенностью могу сказать, что уровень разговорного языка существенно растет при таком подходе обучения! Спасибо, Гурван!

I highly recommend French Teachers' lessons! It was a great pleasure to start learning French language with teacher Gurvan! He is patient, explains things in an easy to understand manner. J'ai vraiment aimé les cours de français avec le professeur Gurvan. C'est le meilleur professeur! Шетел тілді меңгеру қаншалықты жеңіл бола алатынын Гурван сабақтарында түсінуге болады. Гурван өзі де жан-жақты болуға, жаңа шетел тілдерін үйренуге өте ынталы. Уроки преподавателя Гурвана проходили по интересной методике с погружением в общение на французском языке. При этом, нюансы по грамматике и лексике разъяснялись преподавателем сразу. Большой плюс был в том, что фразы и слова, которые сложно было понять на французском и английском языках, преподаватель Гурван объяснял и на русском языке, так как знает его в совершенстве. Желаю удачи Гурвану и его школе французского языка!

J'ai le privilège de travailler avec Gurvan depuis plusieurs années, notamment dans l'édition de ses vidéos, ses cartes cadeaux (dont je fournis quelques photos) et de son livre exceptionnel. Ayant assisté à plusieurs de ses cours, je peux attester de son approche innovante, de son enthousiasme et de la qualité irréprochable de ses leçons, particulièrement adaptées aux enfants. Il a une singularité amusante : c'est le prof qui porte toujours un chapeau ! Je recommande vivement ses cours de français, que vous soyez russophone, anglophone ou bulgarophone (en attendant qu'il apprenne lui-même encore d'autres langues !)

Нашему 9 летнему сыну​ нужно было​ за лето изучить французский язык с нуля, чтоб он​ мог осенью чувствовать себя достаточно свободно во французском колледже. Мы обратились к Гурвану. Занятия длились 3 месяца. В настоящее время начались уроки в школе и ребёнок может уверенно объясниться на французском и понимает очень многое из того, что говорят учителя и другие дети. Ему очень помогли занятия с Гурваном, благодаря которым он увлёкся языком и достиг хороших результатов за короткий период. Спасибо за интересные и весёлые уроки.

Синът ми учи френски с Гурван една година. Гурван съобразява уроците на децата с техните интереси и прави уроците забавни. Целта ми беше синът ми да се престраши да използва езика, да разбира хора, на които езикът им е роден, и да води елементарни разговори с тях. Благодарение на уроците, синът ми се отпусна, получи увереност и започна да използва френския.

Мой сын, подросток, занимался с Гурваном почти два года. Сын стал свободно говорить по-французски, на любые темы, а не только школьные))) без ошибок. Занятия дали ему уверенность в разговоре и своих знаниях. Гурван - грамотный преподаватель, прекрасный человек и находит к ученикам индивидуальный подход!


A French lesson for AP French lasts 30 or 60 minutes.

AP French exam

Advanced Placement French Language and Culture, also known as AP French, is a class that lets US high school students earn credit for a college-level French class.

The exam is 3 hours long, of multiple choice and free response questions. 

In the multiple choice section, your passive French is examined, including listening and reading.

First, the questions are about newspaper articles or train schedules. Next, the questions are based on audio clips perhaps with accompanying texts. You will hear the audio is played two times.

Free response part of the exam is where your more active French is tested, speaking and writing. Responding to an email comes first.

After, the next task is a formal essay about an article, graph or table and audio clip. You are given 40 minutes to complete the essay, all while jotting down notes and examining the given media.

Finally, the exam tests your spoken French – the most important part! You will be given a simulated conversation, and you have to respond to consecutive questions.

For the second portion, you will be delivering a presentation that shows your understanding of French and Francophone culture. 

Individual / group

I offer individual or group French lessons.


The prices for AP French preparation online with me are listed here.
