About Jim

I have been teaching French in as many different settings as possible for the past four years. I lived in France from 2009-2011, which is where I learned the language, and I went on to major in French and I'm currently pursuing a PhD in French from the University of Texas. I have one-on-one tutoring experience, primarily with younger children but also with adults. I love how the nature of individualized tutoring allows me to tailor a customized experience for each student according to their needs.
I have also worked as a student instructor, teaching assistant, curriculum developer, and counselor for a high school French summer camp. These experiences gave me opportunities to develop my teaching skills in various domains, from the front of a classroom, to behind the scenes of testing, to cultural education outside of school. I've been able to gain experience working with language learners of all ages, attitudes, and ability levels. My training is in communicative language teaching methods, and I am a firm believer that the key to successful language learning is using the language as much as possible. I find learning a new language to be the funnest and most rewarding thing you can learn, and I transfer that enthusiasm to my teaching.

I have a BA in French Studies from Brigham Young University, with a minor in Linguistics.

I'm currently enrolled as a graduate student in French Linguistics.

I have near-native fluency in French, and 4 years of French teaching experience.

I'd love to help you improve your French skills! Contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Trombone

I have played the trombone for 13 years, including two years of private lessons. I played in band for six years, including a year as drum major (essentially an assistant band director). I also played in a jazz band for two years. I was first chair of the trombone section for most of that time.

Violin

I have played the violin for 21 years, including 11 years of private lessons. I also played in a youth orchestra throughout my years in school. I have four years of experience teaching violin lessons using the Suzuki method.
