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 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 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!

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 first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

"I can't say enough about Helen. She is an absolutely wonderful teacher, and that's saying a lot because as a college professor and lawyer, I tend to have pretty high standards. I've been meeting with Helen for over four years and continue to be impressed with her mastery of grammar, vocabulary, style, and nuance, which is rivaled only by her cultural knowledge and unyielding patience. She teaches with a delicate touch but always makes her point understood. She does not obsesses over minor mistakes and gives you the space to practice without stopping you every second to correct you. She's always willing to review old lessons and connect them to new ones to reinforce your learning. I learn something new each time we sit down and practice. If you're looking for the perfect tutor, look no further. You've found her."
