I grew up in a French speaking family and French schools - French Jesuits.
I have been teaching - privately and in public schools - to many different persons: children, students, grown up persons and diplomats.
First of all, I want my students to be successful, their success or satisfaction is my success or satisfaction.
Learning French! is is not so hard; we just have to train in speaking, pronouncing, writing and listening just like a sporting team trains again and again to really become a "team."
My starting advice: "do not be shy or afraid - go ahead - you shall do it."
Grammar, spelling, pronunciation: they will become a second nature once you get the little point and you will say: "it was simple, why didn't I think about it?" And one more point: "in France people speak French" - this is also valid for our lessons.
I live in Kirkland, I can travel but those living in closest areas shall have preference.
