I've been teaching French since 2014 and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral production. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Elsa is awesome. She is a native speaker and shares the nuances of French as it is actually spoken and not just as it is taught. She is friendly and upbeat and an absolute pleasure to spend time with. I can't recommend her enough!
Inna
Elsa has been great with teaching both of my daughters. She is very energetic and has a lot of positive approaches with both a 5 and a 8 year old. She caters the lessons to each level and skill set. My kids always look forward to her classes.
Erika
I can say without hesitation that Elsa is the most professional and pleasant teacher that I have ever worked with. She is very customer service oriented, efficient, and flexible if you have a specific goal in mind.

My teenage daughter looks forward to the class and always ends the session with a smile on her face. She has fun with Elsa while she is learning. Win win!

I highly recommend French Encore!

I am a seasoned language teacher, of both adults and children. Making languages come alive through interesting anecdotes, songs, and stories, is my specialty. My schooling, from age four to 14, was 100% in French. Boy, did those nuns drill us in grammar! I understand that learning French can feel intimidating, especially for English speakers. That's why I am very patient, and very willing to explain and teach things in many different ways.

About Bettina

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition proces

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 can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent French tutor and teacher. Being born and raised in Belgium it was not optional in my Flemish or English-speaking schools to not learn French from 5-10th grade. French was the most difficult for me to learn how to write but I am grateful for the French tutor I had growing up. Therefore, I want to do the same for others. I truly believe in the power of believing in others because eventually, they could excel in a subject they never thought they could which has a big impact on one's self-esteem and opportunities. It would be my honor to help you grow and learn French!

Jacqueline is helping my daughter prep for Le Grand Concours. Jacqueline has an excellent methodical approach and we look forward to her help beyond the exam as my daughter works to improve her French reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.
david
I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

If you've been studying French grammar long enough, you may know that French has two different forms of the past tense: the passé composé (composed past) and the imparfait (imperfect). It is sometimes difficult for those who have just learned them to distinguish between situations that require the passé composé and situations that wa …
