About Jeanette

Dear friends,

I was born in France and later grew up in the USA, speaking both French and English at home. When I was a teenager, I was in love with French music, constantly bringing home the latest record albums from France, much to the delight of my mother. I had my first class of grade school French students when I was seventeen and majoring in French Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I turned our home into a classroom, and my students gathered around the dining room table to learn French. I tried to make lessons fun, and the idea that learning a language should be fun has remained my philosophy to this day. Although I have helped people with French pretty much all my life, I decided to focus on tutoring more intensely after a cab driver in Paris told me I should move there to teach French in 2006. It is my way of 'giving back' to the country I so love by helping to promote the language and culture.

I have a genuine passion for helping people to learn the French language, and I believe that my approach is unique because I incorporate music videos (when appropriate), to provide insight into correct pronunciation and useful vocabulary. Students who study with me learn the language as it is actually spoken in France ! I have created handouts with shortcuts to learning grammar with detailed explanations. I also utilize a textbook from France with additional grammar exercises, if necessary. I guess you could say that my goal is simply to make French easier for students to grasp by focusing on individual strengths and weaknesses. Although I have tutored students at all learning and age levels, I prefer the high school or college levels. My greatest reward is the success of my students by helping them to improve their grades in French!
