I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.

About Isabelle
I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.

For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week for the first 20 les
sons to gain some momentum and build strong foundations. I look for students sincerely interested in making great strides and committed.

Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome!

In preparation for a trip to France, and not knowing any French at all, I started taking French lessons from Isabelle several months ago. She has helped me a lot with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. She is an excellent teacher.

Isabelle is an absolutely marvelous teacher - anyone and everyone would benefit from taking classes with her.
I speak French well and my goal is to improve my conversational skills so that I can keep up with my monthly French book group. I am the only American in a group of French women and French is spoken the whole time.
Isabelle has been spectacular in helping me sharpen and improve my conversational skills. Our class is one long conversation - very carefully orchestrated by Isabelle so that each class is both productive and delightful.
I love to discuss the French culture and culture in general and Isabelle invariably makes that part of the conversation. But i think that Isabelle could talk with great knowledge and interest about many topics.
Each session flies by and each session makes my conversational skills sharper.
I feel very lucky that Isabelle is my teacher.

I individualize lessons and courses to meet the individual students' needs and goals. I have some authentic documents and memorabilia from when I lived in France

About Jodie
My name is Jodie. I have been teaching since 1999 and my experience includes school classrooms, university, and private lessons. I have been teaching private lessons since 2003 and am currently available to teach lessons in person and online. I teach French and ESL. I am also qualified to teach English, writing, and comprehension as well as a few crafts. One of my current students was failing his French I class at high school three months ago when his mom contacted me, but he has now raised that grade to a B.

I received my training at the University of Northern Iowa in1998 where I received a BA and an MA in French. I later studied at the University of Angers, France, where I earned an MA in Teaching French as a Foreign Language. I lived in France for six years. I also taught English to French students. As an expert in my field, I
look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. I personalize lessons and courses to meet the individual student's needs.

During my student teaching experience, I developed and initiated a curriculum sequence on French reading and comprehension.
This collaborative unit involved working with the other teachers within my team.
In my work with the classes, I stressed critical thinking and the incorporation of
culture and science units into the course. The student response was very encouraging, as we had a 100% passing rate for this section. In addition, our team met state curricula guidelines and received numerous positive comments from students’ families regarding the class material.

About Elena
My name is Elena. I am very pleased to welcome you to my French lessons! I have been teaching French for all age groups (beginning from 3 years old kids to the adult advanced level) for more than 20 years and I am really happy to provide my students with the experience and skills I have acquired for all the years.

I have worked with the kids of all the age groups creating cooperative learning, hands-on and minds-on approach. I also participated in "Write-to-Read" program in California and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills. I always try to create an individual approach to every child to develop his/her unique language skills and personal perception.

I am a professionally credentialed and certified teacher from California state and I am happy to share my
experience and my love for French with all students and their families.

Sincerely,

Elena

About Hend S.

Are you interested in learning new language? Or exploring a new culture in its own words? Look no further, I will help you discover and learn the French language in a very simple way. You will be able to start speaking French in no time by familiarizing it with your own language.

About Hend
As a person who speaks 3 languages and trying to learn a fourth one, i do know what is like to have the passion and the desire to learn new languages. I am a native Arabic speaker, I learned French and English since I was 3 years old, and currently I’m discovering a new language which is Spanish.

As a trilingual person, I know the importance of languages, as they helped me to shape my personality and open up to new cultures.

I moved to the United States of America 5 years ago. I took one year of ESL program just to refresh my memory and then I received my instructional aid certificate. I volunteered at Chaffey Adult school as an instructional aid for beginners and intermediate classes.

I look forward to meeting you, and help you discover and learn a new language.

Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for students of all ages. I have taught over 120 French students at all levels including beginners, AP students, and adult learners. I work with each student to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I use my experience both as a student and teacher to simplify difficult concepts.

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.

The first thing I want to know is what the student wants help with and then we go from there. I taught middle school French for many years, tutored French once I retired in Maryland, have lived in France for two years and love teaching a subject I'm passionate about. My students tell me that I explain things in terms they can understand and that they love how excited I am about French. "It's contagious!" They also enjoy the anecdotes I share about French culture and traveling in France. I am also a travel writer and wrote a book about my travels, "Gap Year Girl: A Baby Boomer Adventure Across 21 Countries."

About Marianne
I am passionate about French and all things French and I love helping students learn or improve their skills. I explain things clearly so that students understand, I am patient and I make learning French fun rather than a chore. It can be intimidating to learn another language and I understand that very well as I have been improving my French since I was in high school. I structure my lesson plans specifically around what a student wants to learn and how s/he wants to learn it. We will go as slow or fast through the material as you'd like,

I was a French major in college, did graduate work in France, worked for a French company and taught middle school French for many years. I loved being a teacher and I loved my students! I led several student trips to France and I treasure those experiences. One of my former French students wrote to
me when I retired: "You are the best teacher I ever had. You and your class were the only bright spots in all of middle school and I will never forget what you taught me."

I have also taught adults planning to travel to France or who are simply interested the basics of the language as well as cultural tips.

I would love to meet and help you!

I wanted to learn French for a business trip, but I was dreading it because I struggled with languages so much in high school. After working with Marianne, I was pleasantly surprised with how much easier it was than I expected. She really adapted to me and helped me figure out the best ways to learn. And she's very patient. Highly recommend!

Incroyable! Marianne has the patience of a saint! She loves French and teaching and it shows in how she worked with me. I really appreciate her creative approach in making the language come to life which makes it so much easier. And she tailors her lessons to what you want and how you best learn. If you want to learn French, I highly recommend working with Madame Bohr!

Madame Bohr is by far one of the best instructors I’ve ever had. She truly cares about her students, and does everything that she can to make sure that they fully comprehend the material. She made learning French not only simple and straight-forward, but even fun. I would most definitely recommend her to anybody interested in learning the language!

Bonjour, je m’appelle Nour. I grew up in Tunisia, it’s a country boarded by the mediterranean sea that is only 2 hours away from France (flight). Tunisia was colonized by France, therefore, we speak French as a second language. I always try to make people feel confident speaking it, because to me it’s an easy and fancy language.
I look forward to this opportunity.

About Christina
Bonjour!

My name is Christina and I am thrilled to share my passion of foreign language and culture with you! A recent graduate of Colgate University with a BA in French Langauge and Literature and Educational Studies, I have now moved to Lyon, France to combine my two passions of French and Education to work as a high school English Teaching Assistant at Lycée Professionel Barthélemy Thimonnier. Two years ago, I interned as a high school English assistant in Dijon, France (yes, like the mustard) when I studied abroad for my undergraduate studies. It was here that I realized I wanted to dedicate my life to teaching languages.

I firmly believe in inclusive education and strive to individually tailor each lesson to the level, interests, goals and needs of each student. To make lessons interesting for both you and for me, I plan in
teractive, relevant and fun exercises that naturally facilite using the target language. This is a team effort and we will work together to find the most effective way for YOU to learn French.

My availabilty reflects the time difference between the USA and France, so if it seems limited and unmanageable, don't panic! Feel free to reach out so we can find a time that is convenient for both of us.

Lastly, don't hesitate to reach out with questions! I am here to help you decide if my teaching style is a good fit for your learning needs and want you to feel comfortable with your decision!

À bientôt! (See you soon!)
