During my student teaching experience, I developed and initiated a curriculum sequence on French reading and comprehension.
This collaborative unit involved working with the other teachers within my team.
In my work with the classes, I stressed critical thinking and the incorporation of
culture and science units into the course. The student response was very encouraging, as we had a 100% passing rate for this section. In addition, our team met state curricula guidelines and received numerous positive comments from students’ families regarding the class material.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.
Rachel G.
Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

I've been teaching foreign languages for more than 25 years. You'll build up your knowledge from speaking simple sentences at first to using your vocabulary more confidently and conjugating like a pro! I have been using different textbooks that emphasize the four major skills in language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing. I also use recorded materials, worksheets and easy and intermediate readers in class. I hope you can join me in this great adventure of world languages.

Online French Teacher

I'm a Certified Interpreter in French (along with Romanian, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese) by the Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.
Since middle school I loved foreign languages which proved to be very rewarding starting with high school when traveling around the world with shooting competitions.
Visiting France and other French speaking countries on three continents allowed me the affinity of learning different accents and slangs of the same language.

Learning any foreign language opens doors in life whether on personal or professional level, and I sincerely believe that anybody can learn anything disregarding their age; in fact, I have friends who late in life decided to learn foreign languages or various skills that they always wanted to learn, so, I encourage you to do the same.

Group students are welcome at a special rate.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

ISABELA IS A FANTASTIC INSTRUCTOR. IF YOU ARE BLESSED ENOUGH TO HAVE HER, YOU WILL LEARN SO MUCH. ISABELA IS MORE THAN ACCOMMODATING TO SCHEDULING AND I WAS MOST INTERESTED, HEARING ABOUT HER ADVENTURES. I HOPE IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING LEARNING A LANGUAGE, YOU WOULD GO WITH HER. HAPPY LEARNING.
Cathy
Thank you Isabela! My father enjoyed the conversation that you had during the lesson about Romania and Bulgaria today.
Tina
I love working with Isabela, she is so personable. I felt like I was talking to someone I knew for a long time. I wasn't sure what to expect, as far as online classes. Isabela, made this session very relaxed. Which is perfect, because on the first day of any class, I am always anxious. No matter your age I believe you would be able to mesh very well with Isabela.

I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.
Angela
Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

We've only had one lesson but Nicola is smart and great at explaining as she goes. I'm an adult and love her teaching style, and I could also see her being great with kids!

How to Conjugate French Reflexive Verbs

Need to brush up on French reflexive verbs ? In this lesson, French tutor Carol Beth  teaches how to conjugate French reflexive verbs in the present and past tenses... French (and many other romance languages) include a category of verbs, called reflexive verbs, that are treated a little differently than in English. Indeed, we have the same concept in English. We might say that we wash our face, we dress ourselves, and so on. That is, we are taking action towards ourselves. In Frenc …
