About Manon Bellet

I am a native French speaker and have a broad background in teaching French. I recently moved to New Orleans and have worked in both classroom settings (l’Union Francaise) and as a private tutor since moving here. I have a background in art and art history and have lead workshops in various schools and arts academies in Europe as well as working with young adults. Over the last ten years, I have lived between France, Germany, and Switzerland. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of French language and culture, especially here in New Orleans and more broadly in Louisiana as a center of Francophone and Caribbean culture.

Manon Bellet taught our Saturday morning French class in Spring 2016 at L'Union Française. She was a talented teacher and I felt I was learning a lot from her. She was well-prepared and her assignments were interesting as well as instructional. I still consult our classwork to reinforce what she prepared for us.

I've been a student of Manon Bellet in a class setting and a private-tutor session. I appreciate that she is talented and creative, and that she comes to class prepared.  She takes pride in her work and she cares about the success of her students.  I've enjoyed learning from Manon in general, more than just the french language but also the connection to a person with a genuine persona.

Based on my experience with Manon, I can say without the shadow of a doubt that she was one of the most naturally talented teacher with whom I have had the opportunity to work as a school’s academic director. Her background in the creative arts contributes immensely to a broader communication of sophisticated concepts in language and culture.
