Mr. Jean-Luc B. was a great teacher and my son really learned a lot from him during the summer. This learning has helped him to do well during the school year.

Private French Teacher

Being born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult learners. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment to high schoolers and adults.
Having learnt multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond four years ago, bringing many French books and ressources that could be used during lessons.

French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have been speaking it for so many years on an everyday, educational, and professional basis. I have official native-level proficiency. 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). Culture is also a big part of learning a language, and I am well versed in French literature, pop culture, idioms, and more.
Recently, one of my first TakeLessons students passed her B2 exam, which allows her to apply to French universities. It's not an easy exam, the culmination of several years of classes and several months of test-prepping.
I edited a 240-page scholarly book in French, "De La Case A La Villa" (published 2014), and have spoken on French-language television and at professional conferences.
I give both private and group lessons.

About Diane

We had a wonderful experience doing online lessons with Ms Diane. My son was engaged and interested in the lesson times and he looked forward to seeing Ms Diane every week. We intend to resume lessons once the summer is over.

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

I was a high-school teacher at the French "Education Nationale" for 10 years during the first part of my career and then shifted to being a copywriter and a tutor in written communication for professionals (still in French). I am now an author but never stopped tutoring students of all ages.

I focus on learning methods and on practical exercises, for which private lessons are a privileged opportunity. The didactics of teaching are a passion of mine. They help in my own writing and encourage the rigor and open-mindedness that are necessary for all learning fields.

Having had a teaching experience both in-class and one-to-one, I genuinely appreciate the trust, confidence, and fun that the latter allows.

About Philippe

I am a French teacher with 10 years of experience in high school, 4 in individual tutoring, and 3 in training professional publics in written communication. Having the privilege of dual citizenship, I now enjoy living in the U.S and have become an author in my own right. I am indeed passionate about

I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent French tutor and teacher. Being born and raised in Belgium it was not optional in my Flemish or English-speaking schools to not learn French from 5-10th grade. French was the most difficult for me to learn how to write but I am grateful for the French tutor I had growing up. Therefore, I want to do the same for others. I truly believe in the power of believing in others because eventually, they could excel in a subject they never thought they could which has a big impact on one's self-esteem and opportunities. It would be my honor to help you grow and learn French!

Elise is an encouraging, enthusiastic and real person with a massive heart for the people she teach. Every time I have been around her I have walked away more empowered and inspired to keep moving forward. I can highly recommend her.
Stephen
Elise is a knowledgeable, professional, ethical, engaged, and helpful tutor. She has been especially helpful in the complexities of learning a new language and made sure I really understood complex grammatical rules and how to apply them. She is also personable, warm, kind, inviting, and really cares about her student's progress.

She was on time, well prepared and engaged in all our meetings. I learned a lot. So far she has been the best German tutor I have had. Cannot recommend Elise enough for language lessons!

Not only is she a native speaker (which is great), she also understands the grammatical structure of the language very well and knows how to present new material in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. She followed up every lesson with an email which made it easier for me to memorize new vocabulary. Overall, it's been a great experience and I highly recommend her."

Introduction to French Grammar: How to Ask a Question

In French, like in English, you can often make a statement into a question just by raising your voice at the end. However, that's not the only way the French might pose a question, and as you learn French you're likely to come across many other variations. It's a good idea to get all the other forms of interrogative sentence under your belt as well. 1. Question words. Just like English, French question words can be used to start off a sentence you want to turn into a question. These words take …
