I really enjoy teaching everything about the French and English languages. If you're looking to brush up on your French, looking for an after-school tutor for help in a French course or would like to start learning this lovely language, I am happy to personalize tutoring sessions to your goals!

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's of Arts in French, French Literature and Psychology. I have over 8 years of teaching experience.

I have a BA and and an MA in French and have studied abroad in both France and Québec. This is my fourth year teaching French to elementary, middle, and high school students as well as college students and adults. Within the first few lessons you'll feel yourself increasing in proficiency with an immersion French method. With my individualized lesson plans, you will feel prepared for your oral presentation, next trip to a Francophone country, or your new job.
As a PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching and current University of Arizona instructor, I bring my expertise to the field to make learning hands on and interactive for all ages, both in person and online.

About Natalie
Hello, bonjour, hola! I'm Natalie and I've been tutoring for eight years and formally teaching for five years. I've loved helping students meet their goals in French, English, and Spanish, and I look forward to helping you.

I hold a B.A. in French and Chinese and an M.A. in French Linguistics, both from University of Florida. Currently, I am a second year PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching. As such, I am truly centered on helping you achieve your language goals, whether that means traveling abroad, passing a language test, or communicating in your work or school environment. My flexibility and enthusiasm coupled with individualized lesson plans will help increase your confidence in communicating in other language(s).

I'm dedicated to help you becoming bilingual or proficient for travel needs in another language
. Bilingualism not only makes you smarter, as you have to learn to switch in between languages and inhibit one while using the other, it also makes you less likely to get Alzheimer's or dementia (New York Times, 2012). So what are you waiting for? Let's get you on your language learning journey today! Bon voyage! Buen viaje!

My most popular available services on Take Lessons include (but are not limited to):

**French**
Tutoring for junior high, high school, and college students; private lessons (French for travel, French for business, French grammar and vocabulary, and/or French for fluency)

**English Accent Reduction**
Focus on pronunciation of sounds in English, intonation, stress, and common English reductions. Achieve your goals by practicing English in business and/or academic contexts (interviewing for a job, making small talk, giving presentations at work, etc). You'll learn common idioms as well. After 10-15 classes, all of my Accent Reduction students see a strong improvement in their accent and feel confident in their English interactions (even on the phone!).

**Spanish**
Tutoring for junior high, high school, and college students; private lessons (Spanish for travel, Spanish grammar and vocabulary, and/or Spanish for fluency)

Natalie is truly a gifted teacher. My son (13) was struggling in French, and is now among the top in his class. Natalie always has a lesson planned and her materials are great resources for my son to review. Having this one-on-one lesson has made a tremendous difference for my son, and he has gained so much confidence in his French studies. Natalie also lets me know how the lesson went. I'm very grateful we found Natalie!

French is my second language, but often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave private lessons.

About Diane
Bonjour! Hello!

I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.

My method is to provide grammar (very important in French), vocabulary, conversation, reading, and translation in every lesson, and show how important each component is to the whole. I am overjoyed when my students start conversing without need for translation - even if there are errors!

My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high school
diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood, and I love learning, even if by now it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.

As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

Do you want to be immersed in French culture ? I am a native French speaker and I have experience in teaching various skills : high-school level French, Maths, Biology and college-level Geomorphology and Hydrogeology.

I am thrilled to share my French culture and teach my mother tongue to any student, whatever your level and expectations are. I adapt my teaching methods to you. For beginners, I focus on a way to teach fast simple everyday sentences and basics (and when you are an English speaker it is easier than you would think !). For more advanced levels I include various course materials, such as newspapers, videos, TV shows, songs and so on.

I am curious to know what brings you to learn French ! I am available to any request on my teaching methods or to talk about your goals ! See you soon.

About Rejanne
I am a French citizen and I moved to the US in 2017 for a postdoctoral position in my original field : I have a Ph.D in Geology. During my studies I had the opportunity to teach very various skills such as French grammar, High-school Maths and Biology, or College-level Geomorphology and Hydrogeology. I also volunteered a couple of years to teach French as a foreign language to non-French adults, in France.

I love the challenge that teaching is, adapting to every student and their goals. While teaching French to my American husband I got really interested in the mechanisms of learning French as a native American English speaker. I can cover all the specificities of French : grammar, vocabulary and of course pronunciation.

Learning a language is not only about grammar and pronunciation, so if you are interested to know more about Fre
