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.

I am thrilled to have started lessons with Jean-Luc. He is very patient and welcomes any and all questions that I have for him. I love the fact that he gently corrects my pronunciation without making me feel bad. He is an excellent instructor and I cannot wait to take additional lessons with him. The hour just flew by. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to start or continue with French.

We had a great first session. Went over the basics of family especially focusing on pronunciation of the indefinite articles. The hour went by very quickly. The materials which Jean-Luc sent me were very good.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson. He made sure that I had everything I needed before it started including materials and Skype set up. I appreciated that he was actually from France so we were able to discuss culture as well as learn the language. He tailored the lesson to exactly what I needed. I can't wait to keep learning!

Have been taking classes with Jean Luc via Skype for several years and am very happy with the process and the results. Jean Luc always finds exercises, readings, and subjects for conversation to keep me moving forward with my skills in French. He is conversant and interested in a variety of topics. He tailors the lessons to my personal needs. Thank you Jean Luc
