Deenya ..
Not a good experience. First day we were set up for lessons she canceled and asked for a different time/day. When that lesson came time she was late and couldn't accommodate the lesson but never contacted to reschedule. A week later for the 2nd lesson, I purchased she sends a text a few hours before the appointment claiming that she talked to another teacher about my grandson and felt she couldn't help him. Way too inconsistent to be offering any lessons. What an awful experience. Time to move on (eye-roll).

Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.

I have been private French tutor since 2005. Previously, I worked for ten years as a K-12 certified French teacher. I have taught all levels of high school French, including levels 1-AP. During that time, I created over 5000 activities, lessons and assessments to fit the needs and goals of every individual student. I was awarded a Fulbright via The Classroom Teacher Exchange Program from The United States Department of State in 2011.

I have owned my own tutoring business since 2005. I have lived, worked and traveled extensively in Southern France. I have prepared a US Navy Seal for an international assignment, a prospective French teacher preparing to take her NJ Certification Test and a social worker who has since transferred to the field in Africa. Also, I have worked with students at the middle and high school levels as well as college students and adults of all proficiency levels.

Online 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.

""Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher."

She has an uncanny ability to make them feel comfortable. We believe she has the ability to connect with and engage all types of learners and she makes learning French so much fun.

"Roman tutored me in French twice a week for several months. He was teaching me the fundamentals of the language in preparation for a planned three week trip to France. I had studied French many years ago in high school so I was essentially a beginner.
Roman came to my home for two hour lessons. He was never late. He was patient and kind but persistent in pushing me to do the best I could. He always had a lesson outline with lots of excellent study material to leave with me after each lesson.
At one point he had to go back to his home for family matters. During that time he stayed in contact and send lessons via the Internet. The lessons always included homework assignments which he would correct and send back to me, there was no charge to me for these efforts. He's a fair and honest man as well as an excellent teacher.
My trip to France was a richer and more rewarding experience as a result of his efforts. In addition to the language instruction he gave me a good deal of information about regions to visit, places to see, and restaurants use.
I have no reservation in recommending Roman as a teacher as well as a fine human being to be associated with."
