Overview

Dear Learners
My name is Jean-Luc, I am from the Loire Valley in France and have broad experience in teaching French at various levels (beginners to AP French, DELF and DALF) for numerous years. Based on the belief that a better world for all can be achieved through better communication, my mission has sought to improve language skills and cultural understanding for people of all ages and professions. If you want to learn or improve your French, I can help you with my French Language Training. I customize my classes and offer tutoring options to suit individual needs. My experience and skills combined with the Tutoring Live online enables my students to start speaking French from the very first session. I adapt the lesson to my student, even if sometimes it requires re-examining what was initially planned. I will be very happy helping you with yours needs.

Jean-Luc is fabulous! He is patient and funny. I desperately need both. French is extremely hard for me. Jean-Luc is helping me believe I will get there eventually.
Thanks Jean-Luc!!
