Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for students of all ages. I have taught over 160 French students and work with all of them to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

About me: I have been a French tutor with Wyzant for three years. I am originally from the Bay Area and took over 15 years of French in school. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from...
Jacqueline was very knowledgeable on the SAT French Subject test. She came well-prepared with practice examples from old tests and a description of what type of questions and concepts to expect. She also helped me review verb tenses + moods, and we practiced translating + using different verb tenses.

My daughter is a straight A student except in French. Now in her 3rd year of French, she continued to struggle in this one subject where she is a B student even when working very hard. Most foreign language teachers in school speak no English to the students which can make it difficult to understand grammar rules and tenses. Within just a few lessons, Jacqueline's style of explaining the grammar and tenses had a huge positive impact in my Daughter's understanding. She just took her Final Exam and feels it went very well. I highly recommend Jacqueline who is not only a great tutor, but very responsive and provides detailed summaries of the lesson and what's next for future lessons.

Jacqueline helped me to prepare for my French Proficiency Exam that was required for my graduate degree. In the span of two and a half months Jacqueline was able to provide me with useful tools and translation techniques that allowed me to pass my test after almost five years without any practice prior to our lessons. Jacqueline was organized and helpful - she suggested exercises and tips that allowed me to grasp difficult elements of the French language expediently. I am very grateful for her help and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for help with their French!

Jacqueline has been helping my daughter with French 2 for about eight months now. Since we started, there has been a great improvement in my daughter's understanding, confidence, and grades. Jacqueline is always available to help, give feedback, and have extra lessons around exam time.
- Sangeeta S. from Columbia, SC
Jacqueline engaged my child immediately in her lesson. She was well prepared, quick to make educated assessments of my child's strengths and areas which need work. She was familiar with the textbook and website which helped tremendously in making the most of the lesson. I am thrilled with the results from just one session. My child's confidence in her French ability increased in the initial lesson. I highly recommend Jacqueline.

Jacqueline is very well prepared for each of the sessions. Her conduct is always professional and she is very personable.

May daughter is pleased and is looking forward to meeting with her every week this Summer on French. May daughter and Jacqueline are reviewing French I and working on conversational French. They have met once and intend to meet every week during the Summer. She enjoys working with her and thinks she will be a great resource in French II and in improving her Fluency- something tough to get in class alone.
- Nellis S. from Redwood City, CA
Jacqueline tutored me weekly for the last 4 months in preparation for a trip to France. She was extremely patient, and customized our lessons to match my progress and weaknesses. She was prompt, courteous, and kept me informed on our schedule. Very enjoyable to work with, I highly recommend.
- John A. from Nashville, TN
Jacqueline has been helping my daughter weekly for 3 weeks now and her help has been very valuable. She is super patient with Maggie and seems to explain things in a way that Maggie understands. Her demeanor is perfect for someone who is struggling or is feeling overwhelmed. She is sweet, patient and encouraging. Glad we found her!
- Kim C. from Kingwood, TX
Jacqueline is very professional. We always get a reminder of our lesson and an excellent follow up on what she and my daughter worked on. Truly helped my daughter excell in French!

Jacqueline has been tutoring my 14yr old son in French. He has a competency test coming up and Jacqueline is preparing him for it. A couple of things about Jacqueline. For starters, she has gotten my son studying; that's impressive. She took the time to understand his challenges and then using the same text book designed a curriculum that would be the most efficient for his upcoming test. She inquired about the test itself and requested as much material as we could provide. Our son is confident and is even speaking French in the house which he has never done. Jacqueline is an outstanding tutor in every aspect. She really tries to understand where the challenges are and then prescribes a path forward. Can?t say enough positive things about her methods and personality.
- Jim D. from Warwick, NY
Jacqueline was a great tutor for helping me tap back into my French language skills. I've studied French for 8 years in the past, however have not been using it in my day-to-day and sought a tutor that would be able to refresh my proficiency with French vocabulary and speaking skills. Jacqueline was very attentive and planned lessons that were challenging and fun, utilizing current events and real-life experiences to make the conversations relatable and applicable to my actual day-to-day life. I'd highly recommend Jacqueline as she is very professional and proficient in her tutoring skills.
- Jake K. from San Francisco, CA
I started lessons with Jacqueline to prepare for an upcoming trip. Jacqueline was a fantastic tutor. She was very accommodating with my hectic work schedule and we were able to find an hour to squeeze in lessons almost every week. She was well prepared for each lesson, would ask for my input for future lessons, and helped review materials with me as I didn't have that much time during the week to review. Even with the lack of practice time from my end, Jacqueline was successful in giving me a basic understanding of french and I feel comfortable with having a basic conversation with someone now. I would highly recommend Jacqueline as a tutor!
- Cynthia K. from Vienna, VA
Jacqueline stepped in three weeks before my son?s first semester, first year French final and helped him move his grade from a ?C? to a ?B?, finishing his second semester with an ?A?. Under Jacqueline?s supervision he went from incomplete and missing assignments to turning in thorough work every week. More importantly, he went from a boy with no confidence in his ability to learn a new language to a teen who likes learning French! Jacqueline?s dedication and patience is impressive, if she felt my son was struggling with a concept, she scheduled extra time to address the problem. Jacqueline even provided original worksheets targeted to the chapter. She had a good sense of the classroom teacher?s expectations thru her work with other students in the community, and I appreciated her through follow-up emails on the progress made. Signing up with Jacqueline was the Hail Mary Pass that worked.

Jacqueline is fantastic - our daughter loves working with her. Jacqueline always turned up prepared, knows her subject matter, focuses on what our daughter needs, and provides a lot of encouragement. Her post-lesson summaries are a great study aid and help ensure our daughter has a clear plan for self study and review. We highly recommend her.
- Dave C. from Atherton, CA
Jacqueline is adaptive to my young ones needs and energy levels, engaging and passionate about sharing the French language. We love working with her.
- Liz L. from Atherton, CA
I have been working with Jacqueline for a while now and she is absolutely amazing! As an undergraduate student of French studies, I find her sessions extremely valuable in helping me pinpoint my weaknesses in my writing and speaking. She is super nice and perfect for anything and everything French (pronunciation, grammar, composition, culture, etc.) - she knows it all! Jacqueline is the perfect tutor for every French level.
- Lauren R. from Palo Alto, CA
We feel so lucky to have found Jacqueline as a tutor! Right from the start she was able to zero in on my daughter's weaknesses in French and tailor the lessons to bring about the most benefit. The additional worksheets that Jacqueline provides for my daughter to do in between lessons reinforces what she is learning. Most of all my daughter really enjoys working with Jacqueline.
