What makes French lesson unique is because it is a beautiful and complex language. Its pronunciation and sound are amazing. My students will learn the vocabulary, verbs, adjectif, adverb, and grammar combined together to help them understand and build their own French sentences with confidence. I learned French from High School for more than 12 years. I can speak it, read it and write it. I will teach with empathy meaning that I will use my strategies into my students shoes to help them understand and succeed.

I help intermediate and advanced English speakers go from fluent to nearly native.

I am a writer, educator, curriculum developer, and English coach who has over 8 years of teaching experience. Therefore, I understand the importance of being an effective and efficient communicator.

I help my students reach their highest potential by focusing on their individual needs. For example, many students are concerned with sounding as natural and fluent as possible. I can help with that.

There are also students who want to learn specialized vocabulary or idioms. I can help get you up to speed with that as well.

Often times there comes a point when an advanced speaker wants to refine their skills in order to pursue business or career opportunities; or reach a lifelong personal goal. My goal is to help my students go from advanced to nearly native. My approach is based on the individual.

About Jennifer

Words create worlds and that is why communication is so important. After all, it's how we relate to one another, and it’s how we accomplish our goals. I bring forth my gifts into the world with my work as a writer, English language coach, curriculum developer, and reading tutor. I like to incorpo

"With Masshy as my tutor, I practiced writing and speaking Japanese within the space of one month and a half. I’m one of those people who feel more confident writing than speaking, especially in a language as different from English as Japanese, but Masshy was eagerly helpful, supportive, polite, patient and kind (the list could go on), and we had fun during our casual conversations, conversation games (‘The three-second game’ particularly stood out to me due to all the fun and excitement of getting to its end with as many questions as possible answered in less than three seconds), and even made up a story together. Feel free to ask him any questions, be straightforward about your needs, and he’ll cater to them to the best of his abilities!
素晴らしい先生で、人柄もよく、話しやすいです。あなたたちはぜひまた受講したいです!"
