Hello,

I am an RPN from the French-Swiss border. I currently live in the US with my husband and young daughter. I am looking to teach formal or informal French to a student of any fluency level (beginner and up). I am fully versed in business vernacular, as well as every day vocabulary. I am fluent in English, so I will be to translate any terms you feel are particularly relevant to your development as a French speaker.

As a nurse in Europe, I worked at a geriatric clinic in Switzerland. I translated text and/or conversations from French to German (and vice-versa) on a daily basis. I am passionate about linguistic fluency, and I will be proud to help you on your Francophone journey. I look forward to meeting you (virtually) and crafting a lesson plan that is pertinent to your goals.

Kindest regards,
Stef

I have been teaching my native language for more than 7 years and I still enjoy sharing my love and great interest in the French language.
My experience in teaching full classes or private tutoring has made me someone patient, understanding and flexible. Whatever the time it takes, I want to see my students succeed and have fun while learning.
As a teacher, I know that every student is unique and it is dear to my heart to respond and adapt to each one. That is why I first suggest one lesson to determinate together your goals and a plan to achieve them. Also, because everyone has special needs and different ways to memorize, I am used to exploit multiple course materials (videos, board games, text books, role plays, etc.) to facilitate the learning process and make it really enjoyable.

About Aurore

Aurore is a wonderful teacher. She always has a lesson plan ready but is super flexible if there is French homework that has to be done! I would highly recommend hiring her as a tutor! (— Sencha)

Bonjour!

I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

Having a teacher that doesn't only teach but also live the languages he speaks makes the learning experience with Viktor really fun and effective. Thank you so much!

"Amanda is an incredible teacher of both French and ESL. She prepares extremely well for her classes and tailors her lesson plans to you individually so that you learn in a safe environment. Her specialization is reducing language anxiety, so she helps a lot with making you feel at ease to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. Highly recommend!"

"Phillippe was a wonderful, patient instructor who clearly cares about his students and is dedicated to their learning. He found ways to make learning fun, recommending books articles, websites, tv shows, and movies that would help me learn but also that he knew I would find interesting. Phillippe was flexible and responsive if something wasn’t working and willing to try lots of different techniques to make concepts stick. On top of being naturally capable, Phillippe was just a lovely person to chat and practice speaking with; his interest in the world around him ensured our conversations and classes were never dull. I achieved my language goals after a few months of study with him, and he made the process a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher."

"I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often."

Her attention to pronunciation has given me confidence, and her helpful reminders and tips stay with me long after our lessons are over.

Not only is Marie excellent in communicating the basics of language, but she's also kind, patient, encouraging, and fun to work with. I look forward to our sessions each week!"
