Private French Teacher

I am a seasoned language teacher, of both adults and children. Making languages come alive through interesting anecdotes, songs, and stories, is my specialty. My schooling, from age four to 14, was 100% in French. Boy, did those nuns drill us in grammar! I understand that learning French can feel intimidating, especially for English speakers. That's why I am very patient, and very willing to explain and teach things in many different ways.

About Bettina

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition proces

Hello! Have you ever wanted to learn French? Take it from me, it is hard work but we can do it together! How do I know that? Well, because I did it! I started learning French by walking into a school knowing how to say hello and where's the bathroom. From there, I worked hard to learn French and now I speak it fluently and teach as a full time French Immersion teacher. What better way to learn a language from someone who has also done it! I am excited to work with you on all aspects of the French language.

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

Thanks to Philippe, I was able speak & (importantly) understand French during a recent trip to Paris! That is the ultimate "success story" for me (and anyone who wants to learn to confidently use French in day to day life). I took very helpful group lessons with him for beg/int levels, and then started private lessons to enable me to focus on areas of particular need & interest. Philippe has enabled me to comfortably speak, understand, read & write in French - no easy task! I appreciate that he hones in on exactly what each individual needs and wants to learn. He is also very kind, genial, and patient always! In addition to the time spent in class, he sends various types of information - grammar pointers, news stories (written & audio), French TV, etc - all of which allow the student to learn both in & out of class -- and in a very engaging, pleasant way. I am continuing on with the lessons to truly master the language and my ability to interact using all forms of communication. Philippe listens carefully and tailors lessons (& supplemental info) to make sure the student reaches his/her goals. Above all, it is a worthwhile and fun journey to having confidence & competency in French language and culture. I recommend Philippe's lessons most highly!
Grace
Philippe is a wonderful French teacher. We've been doing French for several months and my language abilities have noticeably improved. He knows your limits and when to push past them. Not only is he a great teacher, he's also hilarious, which makes making mistakes more funny than embarrassing.
Joy
Philippe is a great teacher. I am trying to regain my French and get to the point of conversation. He is always looking for ways that fit the way I learn and is always encouraging and enthusiastic.

Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

"Highly recommend. The files share before class helped me get a preview of what we would do and also helped having something to write on and see during class. Very well prepared and taught."

"Professor Jean-Luc is phenomenal. I think the material he has chosen to give lessons with is very clear and has helped me improve a lot. Before every lesson he makes sure to send you the material for the next class, which helps a lot specially when you are learning online. The main reason why I chose him is because he is a french native speaker, which was extremely important to me because all my life I had french teachers that weren't french, so my pronunciation was a little bit weird-- I feel that I have improved a lot these 4 months :). I started learning French when I was 11 years old and Professor Jean-Luc helped me refresh my mind--it is interesting how he helped me remember many small grammar and writing details. I am very satisfied! Thank you Professor."

"Roman is a wonderful French teacher. I am an absolute beginner with minimal understanding of the French language. During each lesson, Roman is quickly able to identify my weaknesses and hone in on how to improve them. He also follows up with homework and materials after each class that is customized to my level. In just 7 or 8 hours of lessons, I feel comfortable putting basic sentences together and have grown immensely in understanding others speak Francaise. Thank you Roman!"

French Grammar Rules: How to Conjugate Common Irregular Verbs

Last week, French tutor Carol Beth L. treated us to a great lesson on conjugating regular verbs. This week, we look at conjugating common irregular French verbs... French grammar is full of irregularities and exceptions. They make sense when you understand the phonetic and grammatical in's and out's of the language, but can still be difficult to navigate – especially at the beginning. Covering every single irregular French verb out there, therefore, is a difficult task to tackle in just one …
