Living in France for 8 years now and having completed my Master's in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly.

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

Jacqueline is helping my daughter prep for Le Grand Concours. Jacqueline has an excellent methodical approach and we look forward to her help beyond the exam as my daughter works to improve her French reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.

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.

Private French Teacher

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I just received my doctorate from the University of Miami.

I have taught French to foreign people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students. I was also a French tutor during my Bachelor, Master and Doctorate programs.

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. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

Private French Teacher

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

About Robert

My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from Curacao, a beautiful island that once was part of The Netherlands and I started teaching in 1973. So far I have been teaching Spanish for 12 years. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute

"I cannot recommend Zach highly enough. He's extremely positive, encouraging and fun in his lessons. I started learning French with almost zero knowledge of the language. After only a few weeks, I already felt comfortable expressing myself in basic French conversation. He challenged me to stretch my abilities as a student and helped me create my own system(s) for understanding the structure of speaking - this philosophy helped me build a foundation that is self-sufficient, a basic understanding of how the language works so that I can experiment, speak, learn, grow beyond what we learn in class. If you're looking for a teacher that is fun to learn with and someone who will challenge you to truly learn the nuances of the language, Zach is your teacher. I still have much to learn, but I have full confidence in Zach as an instructor."

"Zach is awesome! After studying French in high school and college, working with Zach made me realize how many things I either learned wrong, remembered incorrectly or just never knew. He has made me much more conscious about verbal language production, and I find myself much better equipped to say more things correctly or course correct as I'm speaking. The variety of activities is excellent. All are practical and contemporary. The ability to learn and take chances in a non-judgmental environment has been wonderful."
