Private French Teacher

Living in France for 8 years now and having completed my Master's in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly.

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

SPECIAL AREAS: IB study and exams, comprehensible input

GROUPS: Small groups are possible, please let me know how many you wish to have in your group and I can make the appropriate arrangements.

I am a professional public school teacher, and have been tutoring and teaching since 2013. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure.

I'm happy to say that I am a very flexible teacher. Together we will find the best way for you to learn and feel successful in French. Specifically, I speak of two main options: traditional school learning and a method called comprehensible input.

*Traditional learning is something you're probably familiar with and may have experienced in learning a lesson. This is the textbook, worksheet, grammar repetition version of learning. For some people, this works for them. This is how I learned French, and some find success with it. However, if you've ever felt this wasn't the best method for you (or ...

Private French Teacher

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

About Robert

My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from Curacao, a beautiful island that once was part of The Netherlands and I started teaching in 1973. So far I have been teaching Spanish for 12 years. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute

"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."

He tailors it to the student's interests and is easily able to identify areas that require improvement and focus on that. He has helped me with grammar, reading, and listing. I would highly recommend end him for anyone serious about improving french."

"I first met Philppe while I was a French student taking one on one classes at DLS during a 6 month period. He was not my instructor but we crossed paths daily, as his office was next door to the classroom I used. He was always testing my skills and offering assistance where he saw necessary. At the end of my 6 month course, I continued on with more job training that allowed me an additional 40 hours of French so that it was fresh on the mind prior to arriving at my next post. Philippe was my instructor during that period, which is something I will always be grateful for. Due to my foundation in French, we did not need to cover many basics but instead created a lesson plan that involved widening my knowledge of the local culture and politics in the country of my future assignment. He taught me how to express my opinions while casually conversing in French (which has proven to be invaluable in my line of work). He challenged me to expand my vocabulary in numerous areas while incorporating more advanced, sophisticated grammar when appropriate. Philippe was a great instructor and mentor. I am grateful for the time I was able to learn from him and look forward to refreshing my skills with him in the future."

French Grammar Rules: Distinguishing Between Imparfait and Passé Composé

French grammar guru Carol Beth L. is back on the blog with this guide to the passé composé, the imparfait, and when you should use each of them... If you've been studying French grammar long enough, you may know that French has two different forms of the past tense: the passé composé (composed past) and the imparfait (imperfect).
