I am from France, and I enjoy foreign languages so much that I chose to obtain my bachelor’s degree in international interpreting and translating with French, English, and Spanish. I understand exactly what it takes to learn a foreign language, and I’m committed to make it an exciting and successful experience for you.
I have been a private one-on-one tutor in Los Angeles for the past five years working both with adults and younger students, from beginner to advanced level. Nothing makes me happier than to share my native culture and weave that into the contents of our session together, so as to make it a fun experience.
I offer tailor-made sessions depending on the level of the students, whether or not they are enrolled in school or corporate education and already following a specific program and of course, depending on their personality and their capacity to learn.
If you’re looking for conversational-only lessons, we can focus on specific themes that are of interest to you. An American producer student of mine made outstanding progress by learning how to talk about her business in French and with the correct pronunciation. I’m committed to help all my students maximize their potential by being a creative tutor.
If you’re preparing for your SAT and AP tests, I’ll team up with you and do my very best to set you up for success. I am very patient and also demanding because I know first-hand of the discipline required for language learning, and I take it seriously. But rest assured: I have a great sense of humor, which I think is an essential ingredient of the learning process.
Being a people person, I naturally make people feel at ease, and I use my communication skills to ensure constant clarity in the teaching process.
On a personal note, becoming a tutor has been a very rewarding experience and has offered me the flexibility of pursuing a professional trilingual acting career.
One last thing: whatever level of French you’re at: don’t be discouraged by setbacks. Regular practice and getting support from a qualified and experienced French native will take you to the next level.
Please get in touch with me, let’s have a first evaluation session and let’s talk about your goals. It’s never too late to begin!
Linda is an amazing and patient French tutor. She understands and utilizes the best approach to introducing a student to a new language. She addresses each lesson with direct tactics, and makes it fun to learn and enjoy. I highly recommend her for anyone needing help in learning French, as well as having a good source to listen from a native speaker how the language is pronounced and used. She is a remarkable asset to learning French.Rosy, 21 lessons with Linda
GREAT French tutor!
Our son (and my husband and I) couldn't be more thrilled with Linda! His comprehension and fluency in French could never have reached this level if he was only experiencing French in his high school classroom. He loves their meetings at a diner, they have coffee and pie and speak French. She even gives him assignments like following a recipe at home - all in french (he made potato salad) We would highly recommend Linda!Christine, 65 lessons with Linda
Linda is really friendly and helpful. It's my first time meeting up with a tutor from WyzAnt and the experience was wonderful. Linda gave me many valuable suggestions on what textbook to use and what listening tool to try. I would recommend Linda to my friends.Ssuchi, 2 lessons with Linda
First, a little about me to put this review into context: I am an adult man who took French in high school over 25 years ago. I have done very little speaking since then. Nevertheless, I believe my memory of French is good, and outside of being tutored, I am studying grammar and vocabulary on my own at home to fill in any gaps. I sought out Linda primarily to regain my proficiency (and hopefully) fluency in conversational French. As of writing this review, I have seen Linda for approximately four times now, and I find her to be very patient and pleasant. She corrects me when necessary (sometimes my pronunciation, sometimes my grammar), which I greatly appreciate. Apart from having conversations in our sessions, she also incorporates her own lesson plans - which up to now have focused primarily on developing my listening skills, - as well as suggests homework exercises and outside resources for extra practice. I currently intend to continue to use her services at least once per week, and based on my own experiences, I would recommend Linda.Guy, 4 lessons with Linda
Loving my lessons
I've been working with Linda for over a month and loving the experience. She is very patient and reassuring. I am learning things I hadn't learned in high school/college classes. Our lessons are challenging and fun.Marybeth, 20 lessons with Linda
Extremely Helpful with Conversational French
After having about a month of lessons with Linda, my spoken French skills have already greatly improved and I feel much more confident when I need to do spoken assessments in school. She's very kind and patient when I don't understand a concept, and is even available on Saturdays. Would highly recommend!Allie, 9 lessons with Linda
