Private French Teacher

My goal is to ensure my student will converse in French, not just claims that he or she once spoke French. The idea behind learning a language is earning the ability to practice with native speakers. My teaching goes beyond the session I spend with the student. I will provide guidance and follow-up on things the student will do between sessions, because learning should be continuous. I will also ensure that lessons offer the just right challenge. Too challenging becomes a nuisance and not challenging enough becomes a bore. You're spending hard-earned money, and I want my lessons to be worth every penny.

About Kays

My goal is for you to learn French. French can be quite tricky and it requires commitment, perseverance, and practice. Do not give up. Study hard and use everyday resources to practice. Nowadays, you can easily spend hours per week with French speakers if you take the right steps. I believe in supp

Kays made teaching a breeze and an enjoyable experience for my son who has special needs. We've had Kays teaching my son for over 3 years and my son learned so much that now he has many French friends that he speaks with them in French 80% of the time.

I like to start with teaching songs and reading books beginning with basic children’s’ books and continuing with more difficult reading material including newspapers and articles...

I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.

About Isabelle

I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment.

My 8 year old daughter absolutely loves taking lessons with Isabelle. After each lesson, she tells me how much fun it was & wishes she could just keep learning. Our family is so impressed with how much she has learned & how adorable her French accent is now. Isabelle is not just professional & knowledgeable; she is a kind & sweet person with a genuine talent for teaching French!!!
Theo
In preparation for a trip to France, and not knowing any French at all, I started taking French lessons from Isabelle several months ago. She has helped me a lot with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. She is an excellent teacher.
Pam
Isabelle is an absolutely marvelous teacher - anyone and everyone would benefit from taking classes with her.
I speak French well and my goal is to improve my conversational skills so that I can keep up with my monthly French book group. I am the only American in a group of French women and French is spoken the whole time.
Isabelle has been spectacular in helping me sharpen and improve my conversational skills. Our class is one long conversation - very carefully orchestrated by Isabelle so that each class is both productive and delightful.
I love to discuss the French culture and culture in general and Isabelle invariably makes that part of the conversation. But i think that Isabelle could talk with great knowledge and interest about many topics.
Each session flies by and each session makes my conversational skills sharper.
I feel very lucky that Isabelle is my teacher.

French is my second language, but 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 private lessons.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and ali

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!
Pierce
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.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

My teaching style is well-suited for French learners who are interested in developing a strong, well-formed foundation in the French language. Lessons are suited for quality learning over the course of time rather than a short-term, crash course in French. My priority is quality over quantity - I believe if you learn even a few basic building blocks, and you learn them well, you will go farther and feel more confident in the language. If this "tool building" approach to learning appeals to you, let's get started!

About Megan

I am an artist, cellist, and lover of creativity, especially in learning! I have a BA in both Drawing and French language, and I began tutoring French and writing in 2016. In 2017 I began to teach art as well. It is a joy and a privilege to help a student learn and feel confident in the French lang

"There three major reasons why I am so happy with the classes:
1. Every session Roman manages to make me work really hard without any stress or pressure.
2. I only pay for classes but get much more: class supporting materials, various activities that are always very fun, homework, work sheets, grammar presentation etc.
3. I spent four years in school leaning French but could never speak it. After my third class with Roman I was already interacting with him using the language!"
