I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Lesson and teacher were great! Although only an hour in duration, I feel I have learned a weeks worth of language.

Hello,

I was born and raised in France, spent a few years in Montreal then moved here in San Francisco for studies, I am a cellist.
I studied literature for several years and taught a lot in my student years. Besides teaching you the grammar and vocabulary, I will give you tips to get a better accent and will have conversation as much as we can. Learning by speaking with and listening to a french person speak is so much faster !
Lessons can be online if you prefer.

Looking forward to meet you,

Chloé

French is my second language, but often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave private lessons.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs. My method is to provide basics for beginners, and then mix grammar,

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!
Pierce
Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!

I needed help for my international work project which involves speaking with French people eloquently. Lili helped me with grammar and syntax and I was able to write proper and eloquent letters to clients just like a French person. Thank you!
Margarita
Lili is very patient. Having a native French speaker is very important to me too. That way I can hear and learn to pronounce the language how it is naturally spoken. This will help me when I travel to France!
Debbie
I am so happy to have found Lili! She is clear and thorough and she customizes her lessons to my needs. I am now able to understand most conversations and I'm making progress each week.

French Grammar Rules: What is the Subjunctive Mood?

Confused about conjugating verbs in the subjunctive mood? Tutor Carol Beth L. shares how to conjugate them and when you need to... Le subjonctif is one of the most notorious subjects in French grammar for non-native speakers of French. It is a mood that expresses uncertainty and is often connected with feelings, emotions, wishes, or desires about a particular event. In fact, we English-speakers also have a subjunctive mood, but we don't often use it or realize when we do use it. Her …
