About Jodie

My name is Jodie. I have been teaching since 1999 and my experience includes school classrooms, university, and private lessons. I have been teaching private lessons since 2003 and am currently available to teach lessons in person and online. I teach French and ESL. I am also qualified to teach English, writing, and comprehension as well as a few crafts. One of my current students was failing his French I class at high school three months ago when his mom contacted me, but he has now raised that grade to a B.

I received my training at the University of Northern Iowa in1998 where I received a BA and an MA in French. I later studied at the University of Angers, France, where I earned an MA in Teaching French as a Foreign Language. I lived in France for six years. I also taught English to French students. As an expert in my field, I

look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. I personalize lessons and courses to meet the individual student's needs.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

1- Are you interested in teaching total beginners?

=> Of course! Actually, a lot of my students are beginners. It's fantastic to follow their progress and it's interesting to adapt the class a bit differently for each of them according to their preferences and abilities.

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons
=> For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or more (100% conversation).
=> For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and how are their focus capabilities.

2- Is scheduling flexible? Do I have to pick a specific day/time and stick with it?

=> I'm very

About Meriem

I'm a native French speaker, but I do understand the joy & challenges of approaching a new language, as I also learned English, Italian and Tunisian (dialect of Arabic).

I moved from France to the USA in 2011 and my main job is being a costume designer specialized in opera. Through my work, I occasionally translate documents or help opera singers with their pronunciation & understanding of French lyrics.
I've also been teaching French privately and I would like to share my love for this language and culture with more students. Takelessons has been an amazing tool for this so far!

I'm looking forward to meeting you online or in my neighborhood (Andersonville in Chicago).

Merci et à bientôt!

Meriem was very friendly and positive. The time flew by. I hadn't spoken French in a while, so I was nervous at first. But she made me feel very comfortable. She was patient and always gave me plenty of time to formulate my responses. I'm looking forward to future classes.

I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities).
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school.
I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.

About Jaleh

Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school. Therefore, I grew up appreciating together this new world with that of Persian tradition. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in French at the Ohio State University where at the same time I worked as a Graduate Teaching Associate instructing French courses for 6 years. For nearly twenty years, I have taught French at various language institutions as well as to private students. I can help you with anything relating to the French language.

Finding a good French teacher is hard. I’ve had many over the years. Olivier is completely bilingual and brings a breadth of knowledge, patience, engagement, and personalization to his teaching that makes him, hands down, the best tutor I’ve ever had. Don’t be intimidated by his qualifications—he is extremely personable. If you take learning French seriously, you want Olivier.

Olivier has been tutoring me for the past year. He is always very clear in his explanations and very patient. Olivier is also knowledgeable about the French culture. I walk out of every lesson with more confidence about my French and the progress that I'm making. Definitely a 5-star tutor. I highly recommend Olivier as a French tutor.

"My first French lesson ever with Zach was great. He’s a really nice guy and was super patient with me. Definitely looking forward to continued sessions
with him."

"Isabelle tutors my three children in French, ages 9,11 and 13. I have found Isabelle to be a professional person that speaks English perfectly. She is v
ery organized and is a good communicator. It is valuable to me that Isabelle is a native French speaker. This insures that my children will be learning French from her with the proper accent and pronunciation. My children tell me that she uses a variety of methods in class to practice speaking and grammar."

r patience."

"Starting out as a complete beginner in French, Marie took the time to make sure the pace and style of tutoring was right for me. Now, I'm grasping the lan
guage quicker than I ever thought I would. Marie makes our lessons very comprehensive and fun, I would highly recommend her!!"
...
Gordana
"I have been working with Roman for 6 months now. He is totally professional, so well organized and prepared for every lesson. I had taken French courses a
t the French Institute in Toronto and the quality I am getting from these online classes is way better, I am advancing way faster.
Of course learning any new language requires work outside of the lessons, Roman ensures enough material is given to study between my weekly lessons.
Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for dedicated instructor and expecting great results."

Marilyn
"J'ai très bien appris.
Awesome teacher, I would definitely recommend her!"
Dawn
"Meriem is an absolutely excellent teacher. I am truly impressed with her high level of organization, thorough approach, and dedication to teaching. Honest
ly, she could probably publish her own text book! She will encourage you to "go for it" and make mistakes, while always paying great attention to detail. I also appreciate that her lessons take a very practical approach, often focusing on what working adults would likely require in a French-speaking environment. She also happens to be a kind, cultured, and wonderful human being. Cannot recommend her highly enough!"
