Private French Teacher

French is my second language, but it 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 both private and group lessons.

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.

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 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.

Susan is a fantastic and committed teacher.
Rachel
I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

She is very kind,knowledgeable teacher and she is very good with kids.

"I am extremely glad that I signed up for online lessons with Roman. After studying 5 sessions with Roman, I feel confident that I am on my way to learning French. I can speak a little French and also form basic sentences with the correct grammar. The pace of the class is also good. Learning a language as an adult has its own challenges. Roman is patient and as an excellent instructor does not make you feel uncomfortable during the learning process. If you have doubts whether you can learn French online with Roman , I hope this review helps you in making a better decision."

She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well."

"I have studied French for more than a year and I have completed a second series of lessons with Isabelle in which we focused on pronunciation. I think that having a teacher, especially a native speaker like Isabelle, to help with the pronunciation is essential when learning French. She answered all of my grammar questions as well and she taught me a lot about France and French culture. I found all the lessons very enjoyable and informative."

"Myriam is an amazing teacher. She is professional, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to helping me learn as much as possible. She makes sure I have the opportunity to see, hear and speak with each linguistic idea we are learning about. She also tests my knowledge to figure out where I need help which means that after every lesson, I feel that I am learning more than I knew before we started. She is a gem and the lessons are the highlight of my week."

"Meriem is great! I'm working with her to get better at conversational French and she has great advice for how to improve outside of class (recommending some specific French shows, trying to watch them with French subtitles), along with doing an amazing job in class! She is great at challenging me - we'll start talking on a specific topic but she doesn't "let go" after just 1-2 sentences, she really tries to go deep. She's also always punctual and reliable for our lessons."
