*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

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

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 ...

About Fabrice

Bonjour! Native to Le Mans, France, the rillettes region, I began my teaching career in 2014, using both the online and in-person platforms. I have also worked in an independent private school and in a liberal arts college as an advanced French teacher in New York State. Before my teaching caree

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.

Laura
I have been taught French by Fabrice for over a year. After trying several different ways and programs to learn French over the past 4 years, I now know how valuable a good teacher in a foreign language is. I chose Fabrice on purpose because he is French and has a French accent that is easy to understand. He is awesome! Fabrice is always meeting my need where it is with written, spoken, and visual aids along with tips and shortcuts where appropriate. He is very astute at assessing my weaknesses and building on my strengths and always patient. I am not only learning the language, I am learning the culture. Fabrice is highly recommended!

SPECIAL AREAS: IB study and exams, comprehensible input

I am a professional public school teacher, and have been tutoring and teaching since 2013. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure.

I'm happy to say that I am a very flexible teacher. Together we will find the best way for you to learn and feel successful in French. Specifically, I speak of two main options: traditional school learning and a method called comprehensible input.

*Traditional learning is something you're probably familiar with and may have experienced in learning a lesson. This is the textbook, worksheet, grammar repetition version of learning. For some people, this works for them. This is how I learned French, and some find success with it. However, if you've ever felt this wasn't the best method for you (or you'd like to try something new anyway), please keep reading.

*Comprehensible input is an approach that allows us to dive right ...
