Private French Teacher

Parlez-vous français? French was the first foreign language I learned, and it was definitely a gateway language. I loved learning every detail of the grammar, every rule, every inevitable exception. I took advanced courses at UCI as well as studied in a French university for a semester, so I have lots of materials for us to work with.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. Let's share about French culture!

Online French Teacher

My strong interest for languages oriented me towards a "Literature Baccalaureate" for which I studied - among other fields - German, English, Ancient Greek and Latin, and graduated Summa cum Laude in 2010. After high school, I went on to study for five years at Sciences Po Paris, France's elite school for social and political sciences.

Learning about the hidden history of words and the construction of sentences has always fascinated me, and I strongly believe that this is what makes the difference between a regular native speaker, and one who can actually transmit his knowledge of the language. Writing and speaking a proper french is not enough. When it comes to teaching, one has to be able to explain the "why" behind each word, idiom and grammatical rule, because that is how we remember best. Combined with a burning desire to understand movies, songs and books in their original version, this method makes wonders. Because as my best teacher once told me : “ We get into a culture ...

Soleine is very attentive when I tell her what I have issues with when it comes to french grammar. She gives me many exercises to help explain how sentence structure works and is very patient when I have issues understanding.
John
I am an intermediate level student, mostly self-taught looking to fill in the gaps of my learning and improve both my written and oral expression. I have very much appreciated Soleine's flexibility, and her ability to diagnose and prescribe exercises for my weaknesses.

As a native speaker, I also enjoy collateral cultural learnings, as well as her ability to serve as a reality check on the utility of expressions I have learned elsewhere.
Michael
Soleine has been extremely helpful and instrumental in learning French. I’ve seen progress and have overcome (mostly) the fear of making mistakes when speaking the language.

Languages are best learned by using them - we don't learn to talk in our native tongue by reading a book! From beginning vocabulary to sentence construction, use your language as much as you can! Whatever your use for French, or if you're learning it for school requirements, let me know how I can help!

"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."

"I’ve had seven or eight formal French instructors at various points in my life, and I have to say Philippe was by far the best. I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further."
