Bonjour à tous !
In my sixties, not yet retired, I have more than 30 years of Teaching French as a foreign language (FLE= français langue étrangère) and have studied in Nice, Paris and Strasbourg. Former French Instructor at "Alliance Française" (French Cultural Institute): in Europe and USA. Patient, well-organized, diligent, understanding, assiduous, attentive, heedful. Now I am just a self-employed Professional French Teacher providing French Private lessons, also on Skype and by phone. I like my job and I like to help people; this is my life and with all of my learners we establish friendly communication. This could be also a good positive Language Therapy for the people struggling to communicate in French. I was happy when one of my learners said that she was feeling so good after our lessons, which increase the confidence in using French to express one's thoughts, to comprehend those of French speakers from all the Francophone world, and to communicate in both speaking and writing in a wide variety of situations.
My lessons will provide extensive practice to ensure mastery of all the grammar topics and sentence patterns that learners of French should know and will enhance your ability to express yourself on everyday language use and touch on all areas of modern life. I focus on correct pronunciation, conversational skills, vocabulary and reading, French for traveling, writing, irregular verbs, exceptions, idioms and proverbs, poems and songs, French literature, history and culture, other details, etc. Among many other materials I am using study projects, CDs and videos from the magazine "Bien-Dire" and from TV5 and Radio France Internationale; French methods "Tout Va Bien"-1-2-3-4; "Forum"-1-2-3-4; McGraw-Hill books; etc.
A poem for my future learners:
"Je vous remercie toujours-
Bon Travail pendant les cours!
Vive le monde francophone,
Mon talent, je vous le donne" !
I hope to see you soon !
Bonne Chance à vous !
Au Revoir avec le sourire !
Organized and Tailored Approach from an Experienced Teacher!
I've had 3 lessons so far with Monsieur Pierre and he's been wonderful. Organized, thorough, patient, and incredibly helpful in improving my speaking skills. I would highly recommend him for any level of French.Toni, 108 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
Few people will fall into this category. But this gentlemen easily makes the cut. He is prompt to answer and my son loves working with him. A teacher that a student loves thrives and my son has thrived with Pierre.Lori, 11 lessons with Monsieur Pierre

Fantastic French tutor
I very much look forward to my sessions with Monsieur Pierre! He was able to judge my level of French very precisely in our first session, and I already feel that I have improved my comprehension and pronunciation a great deal. Monsieur Pierre utilizes different books and exercises in our sessions, and I greatly appreciate his attention to detail. I highly recommend him!Patrick, 12 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
