I live in Alameda with my husband, daughters, and two cats. I began studying French in 9th grade and did well in French throughout high school. I also received a score of 5 on the AP French exam in my final year of high school.

After obtaining a BA in French from Sonoma State University, I spent a year in Paris as an English teaching assistant. In May 2008, I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Master of Arts in French.

I have been teaching and giving private lessons in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2007 and have experience teaching people of all ages and levels.

I look forward to working with you!

Excellent French Tutor My son was struggling in French. Jana created a safe, friendly, warm environment where he could ask questions, feel okay about the things he did not understand, accept suggestions on how to improve his study habits and actually decide that French is "not so bad." He may even continue studying it. I will use Jana for sure if he does -- but not wait so long to start!! ...
