As a current resident of France and with my studies focused on teaching French as a second language, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 2 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly. I also have the following tools available for your lessons: worksheets, textbooks, videos and more.

Bonjour! As a language lover, I have enjoyed learning various languages and am thus able to anticipate the language questions that you may have. In my four years of teaching French, I've enjoyed using authentic resources like songs and news articles to help my students interact with the language in real contexts. I obtained my B.A. in French and Chinese and M.A. in French Linguistics from the University of Florida, and am currently a doctoral student in the Second Language Acquisition and Teaching PhD at the University of Arizona, where I also teach French. My passion and research interests are language teaching and language learning, so I enjoy creating materials for lessons, homework, and extra practice in order to help you learn to communicate most effectively in French and connect with French and Francophone cultures!

Bonjour! I was born and raised in a small town in West of France where the speciality is... a handkerchief! I have since lived in Belgium, Norway, Israel, Romania and now Texas following my husband who is a scientist. In every country, I taught French to several students and developed great tutoring skills from it. Beside teaching and science, my passion in life is cooking! I will be more than happy to share French recipes with you so you can feel and taste some of the French culture.

Yaelle makes me feel really comfortable whenever we meet. At first, I was kind of embarrassed to try and speak in another language, but she was able to get me to do it. When she corrected me, she was really nice about it. I think I've made a lot of progress with her; she's a really good teacher!
