Bonjour ? tous !

I am a native speaker of French with thirteen years of teaching experience.

Currently, I am teaching at San Francisco?s University High School. I teach

literature in French and contemporary France. 

In my career, I have taught adults and college students (at UC Berkeley, San 
Francisco State University and Sonoma State University) as well as Elementary, 
Middle and High School students.

You are learning French in middle school or high school? You would like to jump 
into the next school year better prepared? 

We can work on grammar, pronunciation, or vocabulary over the summer. If you 
already enjoy learning a second language, I can help you become bilingual 
sooner than you thought you could. If you are struggling and not really enjoying 
your language classes in school? I?ll make it fun and interesting, and help you 
raise your confidence and your grades. A bient?t !

I will be a French transferring Grad Student at UC Berkeley this year (Department 
of Geography), and I have a training in teaching (Master's Degree). I have a good 
experience in tutoring kids, high school students, and adults.

I want the lessons I give to be creative and well-suited for each student : 
therefore, we should arrange a first interview, casual and fun way, so that I can 
discuss what parts of the amazing French culture you want to explore : from 
gourmet cuisine to New Wave cinema, from Edith Piaf songs to Tintin cartoons, 
you will soon fall for grammar rules and vocabulary tricks !

Salut ! 

I'm Matthew, a French teacher and Phd candidate at UC Berkeley, and I would 
love to help out with your French! 

I'm an experienced teacher of French grammar, reading/writing, and culture 
and will gladly offer grammar instruction for all levels and ages, conversation, 
pronunciation, and tips for travel in the Francophone world. 

I have a BA in Art History and French from Bard College and a Masters in 
French from Berkeley. I have two years of pedagogical training in the 
communicative method, so I'm a strong believer that languages are best 
learned through integrating grammatical training into cultural and 
interpretative exploration. One-on-one tutoring is a great opportunity to 
tailor your language study to your own passions and interests, be they in 
sports, politics, music, your poison! 
My rate is $40/hr for at-home lessons, or $30 if you can meet me on the 
Berkeley campus.

Salut !  Experienced and flexible French tutor available through the 
summer and the beginning of the fall.  I am currently studying for a BA 
in Languages at Oxford University and I am bilingual in French and

individual needs.  Please contact me at
