"Very prepared and great communication skills"
- Paula, San Carlos, CA on 10/27/13
Jacqueline has had a huge impact on helping my daughter become successful in her high school French class. Jacqueline always comes prepared with exercises and work sheets that help her teach various aspects of learning a foreign language. She is very calm and patient when working with my daughter and is always very positive. After the lesson she even sends me a summary of what they covered during the session. The best compliment was when my daughter's French teacher told her how much she had improved in just three weeks and asked her who her tutor was!

Having Jacqueline tutor my son in French was the best decision I ever made. She is one of those rare tutors who truly care about their student's progress. When my son was struggling in his first semester, she was willing to meet with my son's school French teacher to understand her class expectations. She then devised practice worksheets to help with exam prep. My son finally feels confident in French and his school teacher mentioned that he is now able to participate in class. Thanks to all of Jacqueline's work, my son saw his grade go up a full level. She is also the nicest person one can come across, always positive and smiling. I can't imagine what we would do without Jacqueline. I would highly recommend her for any French student.

Jacqueline is an extremely professional, intelligent, patient, and thorough tutor. Very, very impressive person. Our ten-year-old is very distracted and not easy to teach, even one-on-one. But Jacqueline was able to get him to focus, engage and work efficiently in the hour they spent together each week. I highly recommend her.
"Great teacher, very patient with young students"
- Manus, Los Altos, CA on 12/1/14
Suddenly, my 10 year-old daughter wanted to learn French in summer and I have no clue about French. I am not certain how long my daughter wants to learn French but, if possible, I want her to learn until high school. Luckily, I found Jacqueline and she is very good with my daughter. She prepares all materials and homework in just the right amount to keep my daughter interested. She connects very well with my daughter and is patient with her, as she has a soft and gentle demeanor. She would speak in French with my daughter and patiently wait for her to respond. She is punctual and professional. She always gives you weekly progress updates. My daughter enjoys the lesson and looks forward to the next one!
I highly recommend Jacqueline to anyone who is interested in learning French.

Jacqueline is committed, organized and so professional! She went to great lengths to be sure she had helpful materials for each lesson and was proactive in terms of finding out what our daughter was working on and how she might be helpful. She is patient and kind and an all around great tutor.
- Greg, Atherton, CA on 9/6/14
We have been working Jacqueline for quite a while. She is always on time, she comes prepared, connects with our children, and is generally excellent in every way. She writes appropriately detailed follow up on each lesson which are a joy to read.
She is busy, but appears to manage her time well.
"Excellent tutor, highly recommended!"
- Simon, Los Altos, CA on 8/4/14
We were very fortunate to come across a well-rounded and an enthusiastic tutor like Jacqueline. She helped my son to refine his spoken and written French fundamentals and prepare him for the high school classes. She is well-versed in French and has the patience to bring out the best in students. After each tutoring session, she gave us an elaborated session review which helped parents understand the points that my son needed to work on more. I would highly recommend Jacqueline to anyone that needs such help.
"Great tutor and responsible person"
- Yelena, Palo Alto, CA on 6/6/14
Jacqueline started to work with my son two months ago. His French has improved a lot since that time. Jacqueline helped my son with French grammar, strategies for how to learn vocabulary, and preparation for tests. She always comes to class prepared and sends summaries of what they studied during the session. My son likes how Jacqueline explains the material. I strongly recommend this tutor.
"Very Accommodating, Caring Tutor!"
- Gia, Belmont, CA on 5/7/14
Jacqueline did a double session with our daughter (in the evening!) to make sure she was prepared for her French test. We are very impressed with her!
"Professional, Patient, and a Pleasure to Work With"
- Denise, San Carlos, CA on 4/10/14
We are now on our 9th month of tutoring with Jacqueline and we are now of the humble opinion that she is a superlative tutor! We've had 9 months of consistency, professionalism, and willingness to be flexible and also being a great teacher. Jacqueline has been patient in working with our 9 year old who is not always the most enthusiastic student. All in all, we couldn't recommend her highly enough!
- Lauri, San Carlos, CA on 4/3/14
Not sure how we got so lucky, but Jacqueline is a wonderful, insightful tutor who really helps my daughter suddenly "get it"!
Update: Here we are in April, and oh my goodness. Jacqueline shows up on time and completely prepared EVERY time. She is wonderful with my daughter, and they get right on the subject matter - no dilly dallying around. She is smart, prepared, and more than competent. I really cannot recommend Jacqueline highly enough.
"Well Prepared, Patient, and Focused"
- Margaret, Palo Alto, CA on 3/25/14
Jacqueline came prepared to work with my son even when we had been vague about exactly what he needed to focus on. She was patient and kept him focused on the subject (French grammar) for the entire lesson. After this first session, I feel pretty hopeful that working with Jacqueline will greatly improve my son's comprehension of French and his performance in class.
"Excellent with High School French Student"
- Joanne, San Bruno, CA on 12/18/13
My daughter is a straight A student except in French. Now in her 3rd year of French, she continued to struggle in this one subject where she is a B student even when working very hard. Most foreign language teachers in school speak no English to the students which can make it difficult to understand grammar rules and tenses. Within just a few lessons, Jacqueline's style of explaining the grammar and tenses had a huge positive impact in my Daughter's understanding. She just took her Final Exam and feels it went very well. I highly recommend Jacqueline who is not only a great tutor, but very responsive and provides detailed summaries of the lesson and what's next for future lessons.
"Couldn't have picked a better tutor for my daughter!"
- Beth, Palo Alto, CA on 10/17/13
We've never had a tutor before, but my daughter was feeling very shaky in her French class this fall. After looking at several options and reading through the background of the tutors, we decided to try Jacqueline. She was the perfect fit for my daughter who can tend to be a little shy at first but opens up after a bit. Jacqueline was very patient and extremely well-organized. She went over what my daughter was working on and honed in very quickly on the areas that my daughter needed additional support. After the first session, my daughter said to me, "Mom, I think I am going to learn a lot working with her." When the next session came around, my daughter was very much looking forward to seeing Jacqueline again. Jacqueline is extremely organized, very responsive, punctual, polite, and easy to work with. She provided great feedback notes after each session and plans for what to work on moving forward. She is also a great role model for my daughter who is very impressionable. I would highly recommend her!
"Very patient with fine manners. "
- Maha, Sunnyvale, CA on 10/9/13
Jacqueline is a very reliable tutor, I want to thank her for saving the day, helping my daughter with unexpected assignment today was a great help especially to me. I called her and I know she is always busy, but she came right away to help my daughter. I can't thank her enough.
"Excellent French tutor."
- Cheryl, Palo Alto, CA on 7/30/13
Jacqueline is an excellent tutor. My boys promised reluctantly to try French tutoring after taking a class two years ago that they really disliked. After our first meeting with Jacqueline they were enthusiastic and excited to be learning a new language. She keeps them working but also allows them to be relaxed and have fun. She is very nice and easy to talk to and has a great accent. She is very complimentary of the boys work which keeps them encouraged. I am so happy to have found her and excited about the progress we have made in just a few lessons. The boys are already forming questions and beginning to feel comfortable speaking in sentences.
- Susan, San Carlos, CA on 5/29/13
Jacqueline is just what we needed for our daughter who wanted to improve her fluency in French. She's well prepared and she's able to adjust the session if there happens to be a test or assignment that week. We are so happy Jacqueline is able to work with our high school daughter! We wish there were six stars. Jacqueline is the best!
- Kate, Palo Alto, CA on 5/27/13
We have used Jacqueline for about six weeks to tutor our freshman daughter in French 1, and have had a terrific experience. Jacqueline is a very good teacher, is patient, clear in her instruction and feedback, and easy to work with. She is also always on time, prepared, very professional, and also just a lovely person. My daughter enjoys working with her and has learned a lot. I highly recommend her.
