Bonjour et Enchanté

My name is Fabrice and I am excited that you are considering French lessons with me.

French is not just a beautiful language, it is a culture and people rich in Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. With all of my students, we not only explore the richness of the language but also the expansiveness and depth of the culture, people, and of course the country.

I am confident in my ability to help you learn French in easy and fun lessons. I have helped students of all ages, most of whom have little to no experience with the language. Today, many of these, same, students are well versed in conversational French and able to read, write, speak, and explore the language and culture in ways they didn’t imagine. I have also worked with students who have a good understanding of the language and wish to brush-up on their skills or work to perfect the language as a native speaker.

I apply numerous strategies that will depend on how you like to learn, however, I ...

Fabrice is an excellent tutor for my two young boys, very patient, playful and with a clear plan for each lesson. He is super accommodating as far as schedule goes and did I mention patient.. oh I did. :) It is worth repeating! We will definitely be continuing and are grateful to have found him! Merci Fabrice !
Michelle
Fabrice is the ultimate French teacher. He’s a native speaker who brings, not only language, but wonderful tidbits of French culture to learning experience. He has geared tutoring sessions to meet my needs and interests. He is knowledgeable, interesting and funny. You won’t be disappointed!
Jon
I started taking French lessons with Fabrice three years ago when I was planning a trip to France to visit my in-law’s. After about three weeks, I had the confidence and basic language skills to feel comfortable speaking to native French speakers. About one month before my trip, I was speaking French pretty much fluently. Fabrice is personable, kind and very passionate about teaching French. His strategies, weekly challenges and attention to detail really have made this an enjoyable experience that I have continued with him for the past 3 years. Merci beaucoup Fabrice for being an awesome, qualified and competent French teacher. I recommend Fabrice without hesitation.

Private French Teacher

I been teaching English and French for 10 years now. I began learning in high school so I understand the challenges English speakers and others face learning the language. I studied English and French at Vanderbilt University in the USA. I have lived and worked in France for a total of 2.5 years. My students have ranged from 5 to 60 years of age. I have been able to learn what techniques help with pronunciation and as memory aids for those learning later in life. I still speak French on a daily basis. I have also visited other French speaking countries and can help learners embrace their aspirations and navigate new places.

"Elsa is an amazingly thoughtful, personable, and patient instructor. During our weekly lessons, Elsa came up with interesting discussion topics to help with the advancement of my French conversational skills. Further, Elsa also thoroughly explained French grammatical structure when correcting/pointing out my errors.

I have truly made significant progress during my lessons with Elsa and highly recommend her."

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."
