My 40-years of extensive experience in language education has helped students of all ages achieve their language goals, cultivate a love of language and explore the world through group travel.

From coaching successful stylists preparing for Paris Fashion Week to elementary school students, I am adept at crafting a personalized curriculum for each client’s specific needs.

I live for those “lightbulb” moments, when I find the perfect explanation that helps them understand a challenging concept.

I am also certified in English grammar. I can help you understand and use the basics and avoid common misuses such as their/there/they’re. Since you never have a second chance to make a first impression, let me work with you to make sure everything looks great. Are you working on a paper? We can review your document together to make sure that every words counts and is perfect.

I look forward to our first session, and I am pet friendly!

Excellent, patient French tutor!

Jacki is an excellent resource to supplement my son’s 6th grade French class. He looks forward to his lessons with her whereas he sees his school lessons as drugery.

Yolonda, 24 lessons with Jacki

Perfect Tutor

Jacki worked with a student I tutor full time. Over two hours she helped prepare her for her French final. My student is very hard to please, and I am so happy that she loved Jacki! She raved about her and told me that she was a fantastic teacher. It also just so happened to work out that Jacki taught French at my student's high school. The familiarity with the rigor was a plus. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jacki to anyone!

Lianna, 1 lesson with Jacki

Phenomenal Teacher

I met with Jacki this passed weekend and our tutoring session took me by surprise. As someone who has not written an essay since 2009, Jacki uplifted my spirit and helped me start my essay off fresh. I felt comfortable explaining my weaknesses without feeling judged and now she’s helping me build a stronger foundation for my Paralegal candidate application.

Nalina, 1 lesson with Jacki

Wonderful tutor

It's always great when a tutor can convey material to a student better than the class teacher (but makes me disappointed in the latter). Also, grateful for Jacki's availability and flexibility.

Rebecca, 1 lesson with Jacki

Enjoyed the lesson

Great first lesson, looking forward to continuing!! Very prepared and knowledgeable. Put my son at ease right away. Good start to a tutoring relationship!!

Sharona, 18 lessons with Jacki

Knowledgeable and patient with good resources

Jackie was excellent at quickly assessing my son's gaps in learning and helping feel comfortable speaking and pronouncing French. My son was actually smiling and enjoying learning a language he was struggling in. She was also very resourceful by giving him ideas to study in between their sessions. Highly recommend!

Desiree, 2 lessons with Jacki

Great

We had a nice session. Going through conversing about foods and meals and how to conjugate proper sentences, which is my weakness. She's great.

Jennifer, 3 lessons with Jacki

Great start!

We started with some basics, but I was mostly impressed with how Jacki took the time to learn about what I needed to get out of this so she could tailor the lessons to my needs and goals. I am really looking forward to learning more!

Molly, 20 lessons with Jacki

Knowledgable, Experienced, Patient

My daughter loves Jacki! She's such a kind and patient teacher and she knows great tricks to remember all the rules in French. Because of Jacki's help, my daughter went from a barely C student to being placed in Honors class this year! We highly recommend Jacki!!
