Bonjour! I was born and raised in France. Several of my students have learnt and practiced French with me for 7+ years. I focus on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can recommend at least one 45 to 60-minute lesson per week; or two 30-minute lessons per week. I suggest websites and books. I provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone and various foreign language learning apps such as Babbel or Duolingo.
About Isabelle S.

I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs. Most of my students have become friends and we always look forward to our upcoming sessions. I always adapt my sessions to the centers of interest of my students. Those sessions are really fun! For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week for the first 20 lessons to gain some momentum and build strong foundations. I look for students sincerely interested in making great strides and committed. Some of my students have taken lessons with me for more than 8 years! Learning a language is like going to the gym; you need a coach that will guide you and pave the way for your success. Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome! Isabelle

Bon Jour, Isabelle is an exceptional language educator. I started French lessons with her at age 58 approaching my endeavor with little expectation. She has been creative, engaging and challenging with the loveliest approach. After 8 months with just a 30 minutes lesson weekly I can honestly say that I have made significant progress. She effortlessly navigates the vocabulary/grammar lesson with French culture, food, history as well as sharing personal experiences that leave the student with a comprehensive French education. It's been a delightful experience for me. I was just hoping to learn how to read from a French menu and I have gained so much more. Merci Beaucoup, Isabelle!

I have been providing private lessons one-on-one and to small groups (up to 3) in French and English as Second Language. I have been enjoying every single lesson and so have my students. Actually my students have become best friends! The key being that I adapt totally to their needs. My greatest reward is to see their immense progress. My Life Coaching practice is rooted in my broad experience as wife, mother of 2 very successful children and senior executive in the corporate world. I have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages and cultures in the USA and abroad. I can't wait to share my experience to help you meet your goals.
