I have had four classes with Jean-Luc and am enjoying it very much. I have "homework" for the first time in decades. I am also doing a few other online studies, and find that my lessons with Jean-Luc really complement that. In particular, I am learning correct pronunciation and when it is correct to use certain phrases.

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
Hello!
I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis. I have 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, through news, stories, and songs.
My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance.
My native language is English; I learned French when I was nine years old and attended my first French school. Until my MBA, my degrees were all French: the high school diploma (Baccalauréat) and my architecture degree. I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years.
As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader for an English language magazine wh
en I was a university student.
I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

About Mo
If one were to ask my friends to describe me, they would describe me as a driven, passionate and inquisitive person. I think one of my most distinguishing characteristics is the diversity of experience that I have had.

I'm currently living in Pittsburgh as a grad student at The Carnegie Mellon University under the Computer Science Departement. I lived in France (Paris) for 3 years where I graduated with an MBA in Marketing from the Ecole Superieure de Gestion. I moved to San Francisco 2 years ago seeking better opportunities in the field of technology, a field that I'm passionate about since my childhood.

I had been offered a part-time job as a college student tutor at The City College of San Francisco. As a French tutor, I had to take proactive approaches to adapt to different teaching styles and play a leadership role in motivating
students in their learning process.

I use a conversational and communicative method that places strong emphasis on the communication features of learning a foreign language- that is speaking, listening and practicing real-life situations in a fun and natural way.

All lessons are tailored to meet your specific language learning needs. You will receive assignment after each lesson to make sure you understand the covered material before we move on to the next. You will use a workbook and various multi-media support.

I believe that a love of learning and a love of teaching go hand in hand. Teaching and tutoring allow me to help others develop that same love of learning that drives me in my studies. I find joy in showing students that intelligence is not fixed, helping them prove to themselves that they can improve their performance in any class with hard work.

The best tutors are people who love both the subjects they tutor and the feeling of helping someone succeed. I have been speaking French for 11 years, and I love the language and culture so much that I lived in Paris for a summer! Part of my tutoring process is helping others to appreciate the language and culture as well. With words of encouragement and a non-judgmental attitude, I help students tackle tough grammar, improve pronunciation, and learn to love speaking about language.

I prepare in advance for every lesson, regardless of the topic, to ensure that I am refreshed on the subject and to develop any materials I might use during ...

About Allison
Hello! I have been tutoring for nine years, and I have a Master's degree in Astronomy & Astrophysics. I love teaching, and I make sure to incorporate real-life examples into my math and science problems to help people develop an appreciation of the subjects. When tutoring French, I add elements of culture that I have learned from my multiple trips to France (including an entire summer in Paris!) to make the language come alive. Book a lesson with me and see how I can help you achieve today!
