I have extensive experience in teaching and tutoring French. I have worked with all levels and ages. I'm fully fluent in English and French, and worked for a French company for many years.
For adults, we can work on a particular area of conversation, vocabulary, fluency, pronunciation and accent as well as foundation grammar. I use a range of resources from podcasts to text books to handouts. Depending on your level we can also work on these topics: (a) alphabet, (b) phonetic transcription, (c) capitals, (d) punctuation, (e) division into syllables, (f) hyphens, (g) accents and the cedilla, (h) the noun phrase, (g) different types of verbs (avoir, etre, -er, -ir, -re verbs, irregular verbs), (h) the passive, negative and interrogative conjugations, (i) imperfect, pluperfect, future, conditional, infinitive, present participle, past participle, (j) the subjunctive, use of que with verbs).
I am also happy to schedule classes to help with regular conversations to maintain your language skills and level.
If your children want to start learning a second language or want to continue working on their French either from school, an immersion program or from living abroad in a French-speaking country, I am available to tutor online. Happy to work with their curriculum or tailor-make a curriculum for them based on their level and goals. For children and young adults I combine fun activities, such as French songs, video, interactive games so that this can activate the different mind language learning centers. With this new stay-at-home context, language skills will likely suffer more as the summer learning loss increases, so it's a good idea to keep them practicing their language skills.
Although Dupont Circle has been home, I conduct my classes online now. I'm flexible to work with different video and audio platforms for class (Skype, Zoom, and others too).
The cost is $45 / hour. Payment can be by Venmo, Paypal or Zelle.
