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 !
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
He was very easy to work with and knowledgeable. He helped me with my French class lessons and my speaking. He has taught French for several years. Have had my first and it was very helpful.Kathy, 50 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
Professional and knowledgeable.
We practiced pronunciation, translation and verb conjugations. Working with a YouTube French song I practiced pronunciation which I can review on my own until perfected. I submitted problem sentences from my readings which he translated while highlighting difficult phrases. He drilled me on conjugation. A very productive session. I have done much less in much more time with local tutors.Edgar, 7 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
Delivery of Lessons
I like that Pierre always uses French only in my house (even though my French is poor). Please keep doing so! I do not want Lucas to switch to English ever! Pierre is also very good at asking for feedback and guidance on how he would design the class for Lucas. This is much appreciated. I would like to suggest that Pierre tracks the work and improvement, so I can get a report eventually, and we can decide how to continue to plan the classes.Carola, 4 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
I just had my first lesson with Monsieur Pierre and he was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I appreciate that he was interested in hearing my specific goals and gave me some homework to keep me engaged throughout the week. I'm looking forward to learning more.Sarah, 5 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
No pressure, just fun learning
My goal is to be able to read French children's books to my baby when she's born, and Monsieur Pierre is helping me accomplish that. Our lessons are fun and focused.Lindsey, 7 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
He's really helping me with spoken French. I had previously learned a lot of French words and phrases but hadn't spoken to anyone. He's very patient with my stumbling pronunciation.Linda, 8 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
Pierre is the end of your search
If you're looking for a professional tutor who will bring you to the next level in all facets of language learning, then look no further. Pierre weaves natural conversation with grammatical exercises. You cannot find better. I could not recommend more.Pierre, 10 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
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, 20 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
Very professional and knowledgeable
Pierre was great to learn from. He showed up early and brought resources to help us learn. I will work with Pierre again.Jordan, 3 lessons with Monsieur Pierre
Fantastic French Tutor
I sought out a French tutor to help supplement my weekly French immersion classes, so I could get more 1x1 instruction than the classroom would allow. I also needed a tutor who would push me in French while also allowing me to ask clarifying questions in English. Monsieur Pierre has been a wonderful tutor! He is very patient, knowledgeable, and tailors our French sessions to meet my needs. In addition, he works with me on pronunciation and my French accent until it's correct. Following our lessons, I feel more confident in my abilities and where I am as far as level, which is vital. Learning a new language can be intimidating and getting real-time coaching and feedback has been a tremendous help! I recommend Monsieur Pierre to any French student, regardless of level, and the sessions will be a worthwhile investment in meeting your French goals.Sarah, 1 lesson with Monsieur Pierre
