Kevin CorcyMS French Teacher
At WES Since: 2019
What motivated you to become a teacher?
I always knew I liked languages and teaching. When I realized that it makes me feel proud when someone is speaking my language, it was a natural choice to teach French to foreigners.
What is the best book you have ever read?
I have never been a big reader, but when I read Candide (by Voltaire) in high school, I loved the book. It was interesting, about travelling, meeting different people, and already discussing about differences and prejudices society has (or had at that time). Everything is written with a satirical touch which made it even more enjoyable.
I am a native Parisian who has been in the DC area for the past 5 years. I have over 8 years of experience teaching French to students of all ages and levels. I have a Master’s Degree in Teaching French as a Foreign Language (FLE) from La Sorbonne Université in Paris. I am passionate about sharing my culture and getting students excited about learning French. My teaching style involves creating a dynamic, interactive environment in which students feel engaged and confident. I love sports, especially American football (go Ravens!) and soccer, and I have experience playing and coaching both. I enjoy travelling, experiencing new cultures, and cooking (mostly eating). I am so happy to be part of the WES community!
