Jacqueline is helping my daughter prep for Le Grand Concours. Jacqueline has an excellent methodical approach and we look forward to her help beyond the exam as my daughter works to improve her French reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.

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.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French for 14 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

Private French Teacher

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.

Philippe is an amazing teacher - he motivates his students and makes his classes very interesting! He uses several resources for us to learn and practice French, which is great as it trains your ear for different types of French accents and conversations/level of difficulty.
I have improved tremendously since having classes with Philippe and really look forward to them.
Very much recommended for French learners at all levels!
Brad
I have been working with Prof Fadi for the better part of this year. While being a complete beginner, he always tries to meet me where my goals are and pushes me through tough lessons. He brings a variety of approaches in an online environment to reinforce concepts, approaches, and cultural references. It is a part of my week I always look forward to knowing I am being challenged to be a better French language learner after each lesson.

I have taken French and Italian with Philippe and it has been a great experience. He provides helpful resources and focuses on functional, realistic conversations. He has helped me improve my language skills in a non-stressful manner.

She is very reliable and was always patient with the kids. Her love of children was clearly visible at all times. Perhaps more importantly, the children adored her too. Her intelligence, caring nature, sense of humour and her ability to adapt very quickly to the children’s needs makes it easy to highly recommend her for tutoring."

The Benefits of Learning French

There are countless reasons why it’s a good idea to learn French! For starters, taking French language lessons can help you better understand French culture. Knowing how to read, write, and speak in this language opens so many doors, as you can further explore everything from French literature to French pop music. And of course, when you know how to speak the language, you can communicate with other French speakers and make friends along the way. What’s more, if you plan on traveling in a French-speaking country, understanding the language can make it much easier to get around, whether you need to ask for directions or order a meal in a restaurant.

Why Take French Lessons?
