Mélody is an excellent teacher. She is flexible and works according to my needs and is great at explaining grammar rules and pronunciation in a way that I can understand. She is knowledgeable about grammar and how to learn languages and has innovative ideas about how to make learning fun. I highly recommend her as a language tutor! I have been studying with her for the past two years and have seen significant growth as a result of our lessons. She is excellent.

Melody is an energetic, gifted tutor. The conversation is lively and precise. She is careful to explain the subtle meaning of works and phrases. I got to the level I desired with her. Will come back for periodic refreshers.

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

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.

Bonjour! I was born and raised in France. Several of my students have learnt and practiced French with me for 5+ years. I focus on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can recommend at least one 45 to 60-minute lesson per week; or two 30-minute lessons per week. I suggest websites and books. I provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone and various foreign language learning apps such as Babbel or Duolingo.

About Isabelle

I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment.

In my French lessons, Isabelle has worked with me on pronunciation, reading, vocabulary and syntax. Isabelle is always patient and shows a strong command of french and how to convey concepts. I really appreciate & enjoy my lessons with Isabelle.
Kathryn
Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

"Hi - I have been taking French classes for a long time and Philippe by far has been my favorite instructor - so much so that I now request him where I am currently taking courses. He builds his classes around his students learning requests and this approach has helped me move further and faster than if I were going chapter by chapter through a text book. Classes are always fun and lively and the time passes quickly. I am much more confident reading, speaking, and listening to French. :-)"

"I’ve had seven or eight formal French instructors at various points in my life, and I have to say Philippe was by far the best. I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further."

How to Conjugate French Reflexive Verbs

Need to brush up on French reflexive verbs ? In this lesson, French tutor Carol Beth  teaches how to conjugate French reflexive verbs in the present and past tenses... French (and many other romance languages) include a category of verbs, called reflexive verbs, that are treated a little differently than in English. Indeed, we have the same concept in English. We might say that we wash our face, we dress ourselves, and so on. That is, we are taking action towards ourselves. In Frenc …
