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.

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.

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

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 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.

I have been teaching French for 20 years and also have both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the language, so my French level is that of a native speaker. I've also lived in France for extended periods of time, as well as having taught the languange in the Switzerland and the United States.

I teach to each students strengths and break down the grammar into easy to comprehend portions, as well focusing on the spoken aspect of the language; since it is the most important aspect of being able to communicate in the language. I utilise pictures, word association, songs, and a variety of techniques to reinforce and remember vocabulary.

In addition, I like to break lessons into 2-3 parts to avoid boredom on the part of the student. This can also include games specifically tailored to French-language learners.

I am a teacher with over 20 years experience in Spanish, French, ESL, Social Studies, Cultural Anthropology, and Sociology. My philosophy of learning is that it should be fun, not just memorization. I incorporate a variety of different teaching methods to keep class interesting, such as songs,
