FRENCH IMMERSION COURSE (one-on-one or family groups) with film clips, photos, games, and classic French songs. Learn the culture along with the language! NO ENGLISH SPOKEN AT ALL. And yes, you WILL understand! I am a French native speaker and teacher trained in immersion techniques.

A typical session lasts 2 hours. All-day sessions (5 to 8 hours) also available. This includes French-cuisine, home-cooked meals.
No numbing word lists or giant piles of flashcards. The drill-and-kill approach we used 20 years ago doesn't work. In 2013, Rosetta Stone lost one of its biggest contracts: the U.S. Army.
I use a method of selective learning and spaced repetition which moves the words from your short-term memory into long-term memory and maximizes the number of words you can learn effectively in a limited period of time. I am familiar with the methods of the Defense Language Institute and Middlebury College as well as research from the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language and other institutions.
I work at your pace. From the minute you walk in the door, you will be listening to and speaking (or singing) French. Clear grammar charts and diagrams illustrate grammar rules. After the first lesson, you will have settled the date, time, and duration of the next lesson without using a word of English.
Learning a language is a commitment. This is a challenging course - not for quitters or whiners. And you get homework. But you will learn to speak French.
My rate is $45 per hour - more than the average Craigslist tutor's rate, but reasonable for a professional, native teacher. This course has taken me years of trial and error, and it works. You will speak French. Very few teachers are able to use total language immersion together with cultural immersion. I am one of them. I offer a streamlined, cost-effective approach. My price is not negotiable.
