Teaching since:

I am a personal French teacher and tutor for students ranging in age currently from 4-47. My method is to make it as fun and relaxing as possible so students can learn with ease.

I love to travel and learn about other cultures. I've led student trips to France, Quebec, England and have visited Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. My travel bucket list is long and I hope I get to see all of them.

I graduated from the University of Dayton in 2002 with a BA in French and continued on to graduate school for International relations. I started teaching at a public school after graduating and stayed there for 5 years. I then had the opportunity to manage a foreign language school that taught French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Mandarin. After 6 years there I branched out on my own to have more personalized lessons.

Students can expect to practice age appropriate French conversation and grammar structures from the first day of lessons.

I hope to work with you soon!

My child enjoys taking the West Suburban French Tutor’s engaging one-hour group class sessions and is rapidly achieving impressive conversation skills. The strategy and resources used create an enthusiastic and respectful environment.

Professeur Kaylene Costello is a fun and engaging teacher. My daughter and I are taking her 6-week French class and we are having a blast! We have played Twister and Simon Says in French. We have sung fun catchy songs in French and have had a lot of encouragement in speaking this beautiful language with the correct pronunciation. I feel like I have hit a gold mine of valuable French instruction with a patient and caring teacher. Thank you Professeur Kaylene!!
