One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in advanced conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

About Loren

I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!).

I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France!

I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

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.

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.

Danielle K.
The first lesson with Meriem was great. I’ve been teaching myself French, and I have some pretty big gaps in basic knowledge. She did a great job helping me figure out what I need to work on. I look forward to more lessons.
Justin
I spent a couple of months having lessons with Meriem and I definitely enjoyed my time. I had some previous knowledge of French words and phrases from various online tools but I lacked the insight that an actual instructor could bring. It was extremely beneficial to talk to someone who could correct me and help me learn. I hope that I can start my lessons again soon.
Rocio S.
I loved my first lesson. Meriem encouraged me to use my French and I felt little by little more confident in the conversation. Looking forward to our next lesson.

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

"Other students have already highlighted Philippe's wonderful assets as a French teacher, but I'd like to chime in to add my own compliments:
Philippe is attentive, encouraging, systematic, and attuned to your specific needs. Class was always productive, but also always enjoyable. I appreciated that he understands my specific language goals, and was serious about getting me there. There were days when we focused on a specific grammatical construct, and others when we just chatted to help me build speaking confidence. I also appreciate that he sends occasional emails with additional resources, websites, or articles in French about topics I am interested in, to encourage me to stretch my language skills beyond the classroom. I am sorry our classes are over for now, but will definitely call on him when I'm ready to hit the next level. Merci pour tout, professeur!"

a teacher who is not only good at teaching
his/her subject, but whose positive attitude
toward the students makes them love learning
from him/her. Elsa is that kind of teacher. She is patient and caring...attentive and demanding. These are important characteristics for a language teacher, and in Elsa’s case her subject is French. As a student of Elsa, I felt very comfortable learning with her guidance. Sincerely, Peggy"

"Philippe is an exceptional teacher. He has really helped me advance in my French, both verbal and written. I have gained confidence with conversation - both speaking and understanding others. He employs a variety of teaching tools. I appreciate the in addition to grammar videos, he has made the effort to suggest podcasts, newscasts and articles to help support the understanding of French in "real life" situations. Assignments are all meant to increase our learning and challenge us in a positive, fun manner;. I enjoy writing stories in French, reading them aloud & answering questions verbally. This has been a great learning method. Philippe is very motivational in his teaching style! Classes are always fun and I've really moved forward in my French. I recommend highly!"

French Grammar Rules: How to Conjugate Common Irregular Verbs

Last week, French tutor Carol Beth L. treated us to a great lesson on conjugating regular verbs. This week, we look at conjugating common irregular French verbs... French grammar is full of irregularities and exceptions. They make sense when you understand the phonetic and grammatical in's and out's of the language, but can still be difficult to navigate – especially at the beginning. Covering every single irregular French verb out there, therefore, is a difficult task to tackle in just one …
