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.

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.
Highly recommend.

Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

Danielle K.
The first lesson with Meriem was great. I’ve been teaching myself French, and I have some pretty big gaps in basic knowledge. She did a great job helping me figure out what I need to work on. I look forward to more lessons.
Justin
I spent a couple of months having lessons with Meriem and I definitely enjoyed my time. I had some previous knowledge of French words and phrases from various online tools but I lacked the insight that an actual instructor could bring. It was extremely beneficial to talk to someone who could correct me and help me learn. I hope that I can start my lessons again soon.
Rocio S.
I loved my first lesson. Meriem encouraged me to use my French and I felt little by little more confident in the conversation. Looking forward to our next lesson.

"Lessons with Philippe are a true pleasure. He is well-read, articulate, and funny. He takes the time to get to know his students and focuses the lessons around conversations and areas of interest. I have experienced immense improvement to my vocabulary and grammar, as well as in my confidence to speak and "think in French." I most appreciate that Philippe is not shy about providing useful feedback or recognizing hard work and improvement. Would highly recommend."

"Isabelle tutors my three children in French, ages 9,11 and 13. I have found Isabelle to be a professional person that speaks English perfectly. She is very organized and is a good communicator. It is valuable to me that Isabelle is a native French speaker. This insures that my children will be learning French from her with the proper accent and pronunciation. My children tell me that she uses a variety of methods in class to practice speaking and grammar."

"Allan was a lovely surprise. My first lesson was stress-free and FUN! He was so kind, patient, and encouraging. He has inspired me to look at my language learning in a different, more positive way that will help me grow. Just one lesson with him and my confidence has increased substantially. After more than 30 years away from the language, I was so unsure of myself and my ability with French. However, with Allan, I feel as if I've hit the jackpot - gaining a tutor who not only understands what I'm going through but who will help me achieve my goals more enthusiastically."

"I can definitely recommend Pascal as a wonderful teacher. Although I have wanted to learn French for many years, because of work and family demands, I didn't start until the age of 66. I have had Pascal as my teacher at UNLV continuing ed for three levels of classes. She uses many different teaching techniques and makes each class very enjoyable. That can be a real challenge when the class is from 6:30 to 8:30 on Monday evenings. She is personable, knowledgeable and really wants her students to learn."
