Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

I do my best to figure out your learning style so you feel comfortable and make progress quickly. I lived and worked in France and had a bunch of French friends, including a French boyfriend who didn't speak English so I was constantly challenged to learn the language well. I have a good sense of humor and try to make the lessons as challenging as you need them to be while providing a relaxed supportive environment. I look forward to working with you!

About Amy

FRENCH -- I received my degree in French and started tutoring about 4-5 years after that in the late 1990s. I love tutoring and teaching. I love getting to know people and most importantly helping them fulfill their goals. I tutored for over 7 years and have worked at Dartmoor School and Sammami

French is among the most important languages in the world; over 7% of the world's population speak it and it is the third most important language in the business world. Unfortunately, French is notorious for being gratuitously difficult. On the bright side, I have over 7 years of experience with French, I speak it fluently and I teach it up until the intermediate level. I tutor French in a fun and engaging way that captivates my students and has them speaking it in a provisional amount of time. Along with the basics, I also delve into the technicalities of French grammar, spelling and reading. You've come to the right person, as you'll never have to be craven taking your next French test, impressing your French-speaking friend or visiting a francophone country after I 'fragment French'.

About Amadou

I am a distinguished graduate from Illinois Tech with a bachelor's of mechanical engineering. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math, science and engineering that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 10 years of teaching experience teaching

Online French Teacher

I believe that a love of learning and a love of teaching go hand in hand. Teaching and tutoring allow me to help others develop that same love of learning that drives me in my studies. I find joy in showing students that intelligence is not fixed, helping them prove to themselves that they can improve their performance in any class with hard work.

The best tutors are people who love both the subjects they tutor and the feeling of helping someone succeed. I have been speaking French for 14 years, and I love the language and culture so much that I lived in Paris for a summer! Part of my tutoring process is helping others to appreciate the language and culture as well. With words of encouragement and a non-judgmental attitude, I help students tackle tough grammar, improve pronunciation, and learn to love speaking about language.

I prepare in advance for every lesson, regardless of the topic, to ensure that I am refreshed on the subject and to develop any materials I might use ...

Allison is VERY sweet, patient and thorough! I really enjoyed working with her. I learned SO much in just one hour!! I was hesitant about taking the lessons as I've tried lessons at my local Michael's store but didn't get much out of it. One on one with Allison was the right decision. If you are just thinking about it - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson with Allison :)

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.

In my French lessons, Isabelle has worked with me on pronunciation, reading, vocabulary and syntax. Isabelle is always patient and shows a strong command of french and how to convey concepts. I really appreciate & enjoy my lessons with Isabelle.
Kathryn
Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"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.

I'am familiar with the French Curriculum used by the FCPS World Languages.
Tutoring Levels:

Level 1:

You only know the alphabet, and you can't write or speak a word yet. Not a problem, we can go through the basics to get you comfortable.After the first lesson, you'll already know how to have a simple conversation (introduce yourself, ask for directions or order a dish for instance.

Level 2:

You can speak the few sentences that you remember from school, but not enough to feel at ease across the pond. Key ...

Samir is dedicated, patient, reliable and fun! He provides helpful material between our online sessions, and I feel I'm learning at just the right pace. I highly recommend him.
Kahina
Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.
Lainie
For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

"Phillipe’s greatest assets as an instructor are his adaptive, tailored approach; and his business/professional vocabulary (which “typical” French professors often don’t use or understand, in my experience). As a French national and native-French speaker, Phillipe was also able to identify some pronunciation issues that were affecting my clarity in speech.

Adaptive, Responsive Approach: From the beginning of our classes, Phillipe made it clear that we would target my unique learning needs. He then proposed a process to ensure that I provided him with critical feedback (every few lessons) so that he could adjust course.

This approach ensured that we maintained a common understanding of how I learned best and what areas we would target each week.

Turbo-Charged Vocabulary: Having worked in private sector and government, I was grateful that Phillipe helped expand my vocabulary in the domains of economics, history, social science, and regulation/public policy. (I have found that other French professors often struggle with the business/professional vocabulary that I need to used on a daily basis.)

A PRO for most, Phillipe did not get bogged down in grammar drills or exercises. Instead he takes the approach that worked the best for me -- to speak, correct, and speak, speak, speak."
