Bio

Bonjour! I'm Lynni, and I have taught French at the University of Nevada - Reno for over 20 years. At UNR, I have taught all levels of Introductory and Intermediate French, plus French Conversation and French for Business. I emphasize the four aspects of language learning (speaking, reading, writing, comprehension) and I include French Culture in my lessons. I have also tutored adults, high school and college students for over 15 years and tailor my lessons to students' specific needs,...

Bonjour! I'm Lynni, and I have taught French at the University of Nevada - Reno for over 20 years. At UNR, I have taught all levels of Introductory and Intermediate French, plus French Conversation and French for Business. I emphasize the four aspects of language learning (speaking, reading, writing, comprehension) and I include French Culture in my lessons. I have also tutored adults, high school and college students for over 15 years and tailor my lessons to students' specific needs, recognizing that some students may need more emphasis on grammar and composition, while others need more oral practice. My general approach for first-time learners of French is very similar to learning a musical instrument - we start slowly then gradually increase the pace as students' proficiency improves. For other students who already have some knowledge of French, my teaching centers on identifying specific problems they may be having and getting them focused help where they need it. I have also helped students prepping for the AP and/or IB exams in high school.

Having lived in France, Switzerland and Quebec for eight years, my level of French is native and I hold multiple degrees from McGill University (B.S.) and the University of Nevada - Reno (M.B.A., B.A. French and M.A. French).

Students have consistently appreciated my teaching style in French as I am very enthusiastic about the language and culture. I also try to make grammar concepts easier for students to learn by showing them where French syntax is similar to the English language, where it is completely different, and helping them devise ways to remember.

My teaching evaluations at UNR over the course of 25 years have been uniformly excellent, and I was the recipient of the College of Liberal Arts Dean's Outstanding Teaching Award twice over the last decade.

Whether you want to begin to learn French or you want some specific help in a certain area, you can count on me to assist! I respond rapidly to all inquiries so don't hesitate to reach out.

Knowledgeable and excited tutor.

Lynni is always so excited to work with you and teach anything you may need to learn! She makes the environment a really fun one to be in and it feels like learning with a friend. I 1000% recommend Lynni!

Cate, 3 lessons with Lynni

Very Dedicated and Knowledgeable Tutor!

Ms. Lynni helped my son (in HS) prepare for his upcoming French 5 test (reading and listening). For the very first lesson, she communicated several times with him in order to be better prepared and to be more helpful to my son. We were so impressed by her professionalism as well as dedication. We are so glad and thankful to have found her amongst so many tutors. Highly recommend Lynni to anyone looking for a dedicated, kind and knowledgeable French tutor.

Sunny, 4 lessons with Lynni

Super helpful and extremely prepared tutor

Lynni had lots of resources already prepared for my daughter for their first AP French tutoring session, and my daughter came away feeling very confident and raving about Lynni. We have booked a weekly standing session!

Susan, 4 lessons with Lynni

The lesson was a lot of fun

I have to say I was nervous trying out my French with Lynni on our first lesson but she was super patient and I actually had fun getting back into it. I’m certain she would be fantastic for whatever level you are at.

Beverly, 9 lessons with Lynni

We love Lynni!

Lynni is helping my 13 year old daughter learn French. She not only shared how much fun she had learning, but how much she liked Lynni and learning from her. She’s excited to continue her weekly lessons and said her goal is to be as fluent as Lynni someday. Thank you for such a great experience and we are so happy to have found you to help. Strongly recommend Lynni!

Sarah, 31 lessons with Lynni

Knowledgable and thorough tutor

I've asked Mme. Lynni to help me review 3 levels of French to prepare for my upcoming university French course. I really appreciate her level of preparation and focus. She has gone above and beyond what any other tutor has done for me and has pulled in extra material from other textbooks to help nail down concepts. I'm really glad I stumbled upon her profile!

Tiffany, 24 lessons with Lynni

Very knowledgable. Helped me make good decisions on my french essay.

Helped me edit my AP French essay. It's much better and my confidence improved. I was able to get caught up on work in a short amount of time because of her help.

Wonderful!

We're so grateful for Lynni. She helped my daughter last-minute with French grammar for an upcoming test. In class--Beginning French--the professor teaches grammar in French. If you don't know French yet, this is really hard! When you're tested on it, it' impossible:) Lynni took the time to help my daughter understand. We will chose her for follow-up lessons because of how nice and patient she was. Thank you Lynni!
