About Pascale T.

My name is Pascale. I am a native French speaker, born in Versailles. I graduated from the University of Paris with a Master’s degree in Education and now live in the United States, in Nevada. I have been teaching 20 years in a multi-faceted environment including one-on-one tuition, and in the classroom. I am capable of teaching at all levels from elementary school to university, using a palette of techniques leading to easy assimilation of the language by the student.

I am eager to share with you my knowledge not only of French language but also French culture, society and way of life. I offer a variety of courses whether you’re starting from scratch, studying at school, brushing up on your conversational skills or practicing business French for the workplace. I can also create specialized courses for those who have professional goals.
My lessons focus on the four aspects of language learning for everyday life: Listening and speaking, reading and writing.

I started to teach in France in elementary schools. When I moved in United States, I worked as a French substitute teacher in high schools. In order to enrich my professional experience, I taught at college-level and worked for foreign language institutions providing immersion programs to children, and adults. Concurrently, I have been tutoring High School students, in collaboration with their teachers, to help them improve their skills, grades and self-confidence in the language.

Excellent sessions! I was concerned about using an on-line format but this has worked perfectly. Pascale is excellent! We have been reading articles from Le monde while she manages the screen. She provides advice and corrections on pronunciation as well as explanations of grammar and complex constructions. Highly recommend her! We primarily work in French but she uses English as needed for some explanations.

Pascale was patient with me during some initial technical difficulty we had in connecting. After that she was engaging, interesting and quickly showed she was a competent, knowledge instructor. I was hesitant about takelessons.com, never having used an online tutoring service, but Pascale had me convinced of the value after the first lesson. I'm very happy with my choice!

I would highly recommend Pascale to anyone searching for a French teacher. Pascale is a very good instructor. I had different instructors and classes in the past but I was struggling and thought I will never learn French. I then decided to give myself another chance and I found Pascale. I had 4 classes already and I am very happy. Pascale is a professional teacher. She has tons of material and demos to help you understand better. She is very patient with me. Pascale is always prepared for a class. She motivates and encourages me to learn. Besides her native French she speaks very good and clear English so it really helps if you are a beginner.

I would love to recommend Pascale as a tutor for you. I have been taking lessons now with her for 8 weeks and she always amazes me by having just the perfect resources right at hand for whatever I need. She is always receptive to my suggestions and always has fun lessons organized. Our discussions help me improve my speaking, and I love her positive, helpful manner. I know you will enjoy working with her too.

Pascale is an excellent teacher! She is very welcoming, kind, and patient. Our entire family is learning French and she was very accommodating to each person during our lesson. Her teaching style is very interactive with a variety of methods to keep everyone engaged, We are very excited to be on this journey with her.

I am taking a course with Pascale through a university continuing education program. It is a perfect course for anyone who would like to visit France because Pascale is helping us to develop the practical, everyday language skills we need. For example, we learn vocabulary related to shopping for food at a market and we learn how to interact with a hotel reservation desk. Pascale is helping us to build vocabulary and create good sentence structure. The best part is the way Pascale is able to make the learning process enjoyable. I would recommend her.

Pascale has been teaching me French at UNLV for over a year. She is great at explaining the grammar in her lessons and makes her class so interesting that it made me want to learn more. When the semester is over, I go to her private classes whenever possible.

I have taken French lessons from Pascale since 2016 and intend to attend more of her classes at UNLV. I had some college French way back and as a senior, I am so appreciative of Pascale’s professional and thorough teaching skills. Her detailed instruction is fun and informative. She utilizes stories poems and songs and allows her students to speak French in class by reciting their weekly activities. I especially appreciated learning the difficult grammar to enhance understanding of sentence structure and a clear understanding of French tenses. I read short stories and LeMonde on a daily basis. Brava madame professeur.

I have been in classes françaises avec Pascale pour trois ahn. It has been a delightful time and I continue to learn. Before taking this class, I had no formal training in the French language at all. In 3 years, we have learned grammar and conversation in an easy setting. There is always more to learn. Pascale is very open to her students and engages with everyone. It is a pleasure to attend the classes.

I look forward to my weekly French lessons w Pascale! Not only I am learning so much from a native speaker, it is fun at the same time!
Pascale makes learning French fun! I love when we sing in French as well! I highly recommend taking lessons with her! Hopefully, she will still have room for us all ;-) Merci à toi, Pascale ! À bientôt !

I can definitely recommend Pascal as a wonderful teacher. Although I have wanted to learn French for many years, because of work and family demands, I didn't start until the age of 66. I have had Pascal as my teacher at UNLV continuing ed for three levels of classes. She uses many different teaching techniques and makes each class very enjoyable. That can be a real challenge when the class is from 6:30 to 8:30 on Monday evenings. She is personable, knowledgeable and really wants her students to learn.

At age 56, it is getting harder for me to remember a few things. Especially language. Even though I speak several languages(English, Spanish, Chinese), I find that French is the hardest one. I have been going to the classes offer by UNLV for several years, and I have been having the same teacher, Pascal. If you are asking me that if she is a great teacher? I think so. Otherwise, why am I still going, right?
I enjoy her class very much. She is fun to be around.

I have been taking French classes with Pascale at UNLV Extension for about a year. She’s an amazing teacher with a lot of patience. Pascale also has a sense of humor and the ability to make each topic interesting!
I’m learning a lot and becoming more fluent with each class. Merci beaucoup Pascale!
