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. I recommend at least one 45 to 60-minutes lesson per week; or two 30-minutes lessons per week.

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 first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

I been teaching English and French for 10 years now. I began learning in high school so I understand the challenges English speakers and others face learning the language. I studied English and French at Vanderbilt University in the USA. I have lived and worked in France for a total of 2.5 years. My students have ranged from 5 to 60 years of age. I have been able to learn what techniques help with pronunciation and as memory aids for those learning later in life. I still speak French on a daily basis. I have also visited other French speaking countries and can help learners embrace their aspirations and navigate new places.

Online French Teacher

I am a native french speaker who's been studying and working in french for over 30 years. Not only I have a good exposure to the french language through my professional experience but I am also familiar with french in a school setting. I helped my three kids with their homework throughout middle school and high school. I also volunteered to teach french classes to kids who needed help but couldn't afford it. I enjoy preparing lessons which I customize based on what each student needs focusing on perfecting strengths and improving weaknesses. My teaching method mainly involves patience and encouragement. I will make sure to go over the concepts as many time as needed as well as push you to expand your learning.

About Hanane

I have been working in the travel business for over than 30 years, traveled around the world and met lots of nice people with great stories that I can share with you. French is the most romantic language with poetry, fashion, cooking and much more. I cook French and speak French with my kids. Frenc

What Are the Differences Between Quebecois and French?

French is a language that has reached over 25 countries and touched many cultures over the centuries. It was the lingua franca before English overtook it, and still remains a formidable language in the international community. Perhaps one of the places on which it maintains a significant stronghold is in Quebec, Canada, and certainly Quebecois is the most well known French-speaking former colony. French settlers established communities there in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the language i …
