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.

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.

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.

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.

Private French Teacher

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

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

Online French Teacher

As a child, I lived in Montreal, Canada and attended a French public school. When I moved here, I continued my French education in middle school and high school, eventually pursuing it as a second degree in college.

I have experience tutoring all ages in French, and am willing to work with you through any questions you have. I have specific knowledge on differences between Quebec (French Canadian) and France French language, accents and grammar. My French experience also includes studying abroad at l'Université de Pau in Pau, France, and living in the French quarters of a language immersion program for 3 years.

I also have 2 years of experience teaching group French classes to adults in a classroom setting, ranging from beginner to intermediate levels.

Online French Teacher

Not only do I speak fluent French, having grown up with French parents,
but my lessons are tailored to teach you about French culture and tradition.

My lessons do not follow a structured class setting, often leading to boredom and minimal learning retention. Instead, you will learn how to truly hold conversations in French, talking about your interests, passions, current events etc... I want YOU to be the master of your progression, and I will be there along to guide you! I will help you build proper sentences & aid you with your pronunciation, and sooner than later you will impress your friends, family & colleagues with your abundance of knowledge!

Roxanne is very good teacher and she is so patient, allowing me to make mistakes as she aims to achieve the goals I’ve told her I would like to achieve.
Éléonore
I was a student of Roxanne while in high school and she helped me write essays and prepare for several presentations. Her classes were always fun and light-hearted and I had some good time learning French. She helped me with my French final presentation about “France and its cultures" and I got an A grade.
I highly recommend Roxanne as a private French tutor, you won't find better than her.
With Roxanne, you will definitely improve your French!
Martin
Roxanne is an extremely dedicated and caring teacher, with great energy and a very diverse background. I love the way she personalizes her lessons using her deep knowledge of multiple cultures, and which is the reason why I fell in love with her teaching style. Finally Roxanne is a very kind, punctual and dedicated educator who cares for her students and I would recommend her to any student, whether a beginner or intermediate.
