I teach children and adults from beginner to upper intermediate level. I studied the language for a year at a French institution and then I went to France to improve my skills. I want my students to learn a great variety of vocabulary and to feel comfortable in speaking the language.

My teaching philosophy is learning can be fun! I use didactic material to teach the language.

French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have been speaking it for so many years on an everyday, educational, and professional basis. I have official native-level proficiency. 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). Culture is also a big part of learning a language, and I am well versed in French literature, pop culture, idioms, and more.
Recently, one of my first TakeLessons students passed her B2 exam, which allows her to apply to French universities. It's not an easy exam, the culmination of several years of classes and several months of test-prepping.
I edited a 240-page scholarly book in French, "De La Case A La Villa" (published 2014), and have spoken on French-language television and at professional conferences.
I give both private and group lessons.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! Yay! We can start in-person lessons again, as long as basic distancing is kept. I have been vaccinated and I would prefer my students to be vaccinated, too, but it's not a deal breaker. I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speaker

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

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.

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!

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 have been studying at my local Alliance Française for a little over a year. The classes at the Alliance move very quickly.

As a result, I have had trouble grasping some of the concepts. Therefore, I decided to hire a tutor.

Over the past 6 months, I have been looking for a tutor online and I kept going back to Pascale’s reviews and profile.

I was reluctant to hire an online tutor because I did not think that I could work with or learn French from an online tutor.

After the COVID-19 pandemic, everything including my courses at the Alliance went online. So, I decided to give online tutoring a chance and I am so happy that I did.

After studying with Pascale for the past month, I feel more confident in my ability to learn French.

Pascale’s ability to teach online is superb. Her techniques for online learning make you feel that you are actually meeting with her in person.

So, if you are thinking about hiring a tutor for French, look no further than Pascale. I highly recommend her. You will not regret it."

"Philiippe was a great French instructor. I enjoyed that he focused the class on learning the fundamentals of conjugating verbs and using the appropriate tenses. The format of the class encouraged a lot of interaction with other students which allowed us to practice what we learned. The most important part was that Philippe made learning fun. I enjoyed the class."

What Are the Differences Between Quebecois and French?

French is a language that has reached over 25 countries and touched many cultures over the centuries. It was the lingua franca before English overtook it, and still remains a formidable language in the international community. Perhaps one of the places on which it maintains a significant stronghold is in Quebec, Canada, and certainly Quebecois is the most well known French-speaking former colony. French settlers established communities there in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the language i …
