Having learned French as a second language and Spanish as a third, I understand many of the challenges that come with language learning. I began studying French in 9th grade and received a score of 5 on the AP French exam in 12th grade.

I earned a BA in French and then spent a year as an English teaching assistant in Paris. In May 2008, I graduated from San Francisco State University with an MA in French.

I have been teaching French classes and giving private lessons in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2007 and have experience teaching people of all ages and levels. I have three daughters, ages 5, 3, and 1, and currently teach classes for preschoolers, K-5, and home school students. I especially enjoy working with children. I also enjoy bringing creativity and fun along with accuracy and effectiveness to all of my lessons.

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!! ...
