About Isabelle

I am a French native and have been living in the Pittsburgh area for 22 years with my husband and two sons.
In 2000, I started teaching French as a volunteer in various grades at my sons’ school. When I lost my job in 2002 as a software engineer, I decided to concentrate my work on the Education field. I began with private tutoring and later that year I was hired as a High School teacher.
I currently teach French at a high school in Natrona Heights, north-east of Pittsburgh.
As a private tutor, I give lessons to students whose ages range from thirteen to adult, and whose level varies from beginner to advanced. I usually give 1-hour lessons, depending on age and availability. I do mostly conversational, and as we progress, I introduce basic grammar. Since French grammar is rather complicated, everyone does much better with conversational, and it is much more fun to be able to say short sentences early in the process.
Those who are already taking French in school or are in college and need to come up to speed on their current curriculum can also benefit from my tutoring. I work with the textbook and help with the understanding of the lessons through various exercises.
I prefer giving lessons outside my house. I can meet you either at your own home or at a friendly neighborhood café conveniently located for all parties.
