Private French Teacher

Living in France for 5 years now and completing my masters in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 3 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 like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

About Mikayla

Bonjour tout le monde ! (Hello everyone!)

My name is Mikayla and I cannot wait to meet and teach you my favorite language and life's passion. I have been speaking French for half my life now and I have loved it since day one. I earned my Bachelors in French and Francophone Studies with a minor in European History from San Diego State University in 2014, lived and worked as and English and French teacher in Nîmes (south of France) and I now live in Lyon where I just completed my Masters-FLES (teaching French as a second and foreign language).

I tailor my lessons to fit my students. I look at your level, background, age and goals to find the best course of action for us to take. We work on grammar and vocabulary of course, but also phonetics and French and Francophone culture !

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I p

ull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using for instruction are: Latitudes, Adomania, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and SuperMax. I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

Because I live in France, it may appear that my availability isn't all that great -- please note that I am very flexible and I am certain that we can find a time that works for both of us. If this is the case please contact me with times you were hoping to do.

Don't hesitate with any questions !
À bientôt ! (see you soon)

My first lesson with Mikayla was great! She was very easy to talk to and gave me some good ideas and the encouragement I needed to begin my lessons in French. I am very excited for my next lesson.

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities).
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school.
I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.

About Jaleh

Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school. Therefore, I grew up appreciating together this new world with that of Persian tradition. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in French at the Ohio State University where at the same time I worked as a Graduate Teaching Associate instructing French courses for 6 years. For nearly twenty years, I have taught French at various language institutions as well as to private students. I can help you with anything relating to the French language.

I grew up in a French school leaning the history and ins and out of the French language. I have experienced the culture first hand through my several travels to France. I have also taken Latin classes which enabled me to learn more about the history pf the language. With me you will not only discover a new language, but will also uncover the beautiful history behind it.

About Mirchaye

My name is Mirchaye pronounced "Mer-Shy." I was born in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where I was raised and completed my high school education. I attended a Lycee Francais, which is where I learned French. Fan Fact: It was the first language I learned how to read and write in even before my native language: Amharic.

At 17, I moved to the U.S., where I currently reside pursuing a career in Communications/Media.

For as long as I can remember, I loved to write and teach. My love for writing began when I got my first journal in the 8th grade. I loved it and wrote in it literally everyday. And, I first started teaching as an English Teaching Assistant volunteer at an orphanage in Ethiopia. I then also started teaching French.

Once I moved to the US and was attending college, I saw the need for language tutors so I applied

for a job as French Tutor. I worked there till I graduated college. Another fun fact: My first paid job was as a French Tutor. After college, I taught private French classes to high school and college students.

I now speak about 4 languages fluently. I will make learning fun & exciting. And, coming from a background of speaking different languages I know hoe best to teach someone a totally different language. I understand the learning curve in other words. I am currently teaching my husband, who's American, Amharic and it's been fun.

I look forward to working with you.

Mirchaye was extremely friendly and kind. She is quick to respond regarding appointments and scheduling. She provides me with feedback regularly on how I'm progressing, which I think is vital. She is always punctual and professional. I would highly recommend her tutoring service!

I have a B.A. in French from Texas A&M University, I studied abroad in Switzerland. I have experience as a high school French tutor.

I specialize in beginners and people who want to work on minimizing their American accents when learning French.

About Kathren

I'm a grad student at George Washington University who just moved to the DC area from Chicago, and I'm originally from Texas.

I'm a maker who specializes in sewing but I dabble in many other media. I learned everything I know by choosing a project and learning what I needed to to complete that project in a way that I was satisfied with. I have very high expectations of myself so I'd say I am pretty good at what I do and proud of the work I have done. I've also made a lot of mistakes so I know how to help people work through problems.

I'm a massive nerd who loves helping other nerds realize their nerdy dreams so let me help you!

Krista
"Elsa was an amazing French instructor for my daughters. She is patient (so so patient!!) and always positive and happy. She was always perfectly on time
and prepared completely for each and every lesson. Above all, she really engaged my girls with the French curriculum each week and they never complained about having their lessons. Elsa used a combination of books, songs, and online material to keep the lessons moving at pace and was brilliant at gauging when my girls needed to switch things up. She really made every lesson fun! I strongly recommend her to anyone."

"I am taking a course with Pascale through a university continuing education program. It is a perfect course for anyone who would like to visit France beca
use Pascale is helping us to develop the practical, everyday language skills we need. For example, we learn vocabulary related to shopping for food at a market and we learn how to interact with a hotel reservation desk. Pascale is helping us to build vocabulary and create good sentence structure. The best part is the way Pascale is able to make the learning process enjoyable. I would recommend her."

"I have taken French lessons from Pascale since 2016 and intend to attend more of her classes at UNLV. I had some college French way back and as a senior,
I am so appreciative of Pascale’s professional and thorough teaching skills. Her detailed instruction is fun and informative. She utilizes stories poems and songs and allows her students to speak French in class by reciting their weekly activities. I especially appreciated learning the difficult grammar to enhance understanding of sentence structure and a clear understanding of French tenses. I read short stories and LeMonde on a daily basis. Brava madame professeur."
