Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for middle and high school students at all levels. I have taught over 35 French students and work with all of them to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

About me: I am originally from the Bay Area and took over 15 years of French in school. I received my BA in French and Economics from Tufts University in Massachusetts. I also spent a year in Paris taking classes at the Sorbonne (Paris III). I also have working experience at a French company located in Paris and have a certification in Business French from the French Chamber of Commerce.

French

I am a Bay Area native who has lived, studied, and even worked in France. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tufts University with a degree in French and Economics.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I have lots of experience with French grammar both as a student and teacher. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons.
