French Tutor to the Rescue! Reasonable Rates

offered in person
offered virtually
I'm an experienced tutor of over 15 years, have lived and studied in France and can understand how you, as an English speaker, approach learning the language.

I can help you with:

Travel preparation
Improving grades
Listening comprehension
Pronunciation and accent
A specialized focus for your profession

I can also start you from zero if you haven't had French before. You'll learn a lot, gain confidence and have fun, too!

References available.

Free, no-obligation, 20-minute consultation and level assessment, by phone or video call.

$35 an hour; $50 for 90 minutes.

Buy a block of ten lessons and get 10% off.

Add a second or third person for an additional $20 each per session.

I accept students aged 12 through 100+.

I have been conducting virtual lessons since the beginning of the pandemic and they have been every bit as effective as in-person ones. I would consider meeting in person, though, for a nominal additional amount.

A bit of feedback:

"I started working with Mary upon taking on some work that included travel to Francophone Africa. She really helped me improve my beginner French skills and maintain them between trips. I then later worked intensively with her to prepare for a job interview that required French speaking skills. My interviewers complimented me on my French, even calling it "elegant" and I got the job! Mary does a great job of flexibly working with you on the things you want to focus on in your French-learning process. She's patient and accommodating, which was key for me!"

"Thank you so much for tutoring our daughter during the past academic year. I have seen her confidence level in the mechanics of the language go from non-existent to high and I know this is the direct result of the training she has had with you.
The first semester's work resulted in such improvement and growth, she has come to expect that she can do better and, as a result of the increased expectation and the preparedness you have developed, her work has continued to be remarkable. [T]his semester, she has brought home grades in her French class from 16 to 20 consistently, on a scale of 0 - 20. This is highly impressive since, before her work with you, the average grade was 4 - 7.
Thank you again for your persistence...your kindness and concern, and for your availability. I hope to see you again next semester ... if you are still in the tutoring business, or should I say the miracle business!"
