About Jacques

I am currently an Assistant Professor of German and French at Hampton University, VA. I am a French native speaker. I enjoy teaching German and French. I hold a Masters Degree and a Ph.D in German from the prestigious University of Bordeaux III, France. As a graduate student and also as a language teacher, I spent a long time in Germany improving my language skills. While living in Germany,I attended the University of Wuerzburg where I received the conversation German degree(PNDS = Pruefung zum Nachweis Deutscher Sprachkenntnisse) and the written German degree(PDS = Pruefung der Deutschen Sprache). I have 15 years of experience teaching German and French at Elementary, Middle, High school and college levels in France as well as in the US. In 2000, I was one of a few French teachers selected by the CODOFIL (Consortium for the Development of French in Louisiana) to teach French in the US. Teaching is a way to communicate with students; therefore a student-centered approach to learning has to be always the optimum philosophy. Communicative skills are highly used in my teaching. If you are willing to learn German and French, you are at the right place. I will do anything I can to help you improve your writing, speaking and reading skills while learning about French and German cultures.

Very Talented, Effective and Patient Tutor - Awesome. — I worked with Dr. Jacques for two full semesters and can tell you that he is an extremely capable and talented language tutor. If not for his tutoring I can say without reservation that with out his help I would not have graduated at least for another year. He was literally a lifesaver. I was to say the least lost when I called Dr. Jacques and in just a few short weeks I was having vastly increa ...
