OUR SERVICES

One-on-One Tutoring

We offer basic, intermediate and advanced French classes, tailored to students’ needs.
If you wish to improve your speaking skills, or refresh your French for an upcoming trip to France, we will focus on vocabulary, pronunciation and accent. If your needs are more academic, emphasis will be placed on grammar, prepositions, sequence of tenses, false cognates, etc. Otherwise, we do a combination of both.

Students take home fun sentences to be translated. Special emphasis is placed on grammar points and other stumbling blocks that make French an interesting but challenging language to learn.

Immersion Programs

If you need to go to France or any French-speaking country, we offer intensive classes. We meet 3, 4 or 5 times a week, and follow a special program designed for your needs.

We offer Skype support while abroad.

THE TUTORS

PASCALE, Tutor & Owner of Seattle French Tutors

My name is Pascale; I am originally from Béziers, France and I have been living on the West Coast since 1998, and in the United States for much longer.

I have a Ph.D. in Egyptology and a Master’s degree in French literature. I am passionate about ancient Egypt, and about the history of my home area, Languedoc, the land of the troubadours, courtly love, and the Cathar heresy.

I make a point of tailoring my classes to the needs of my students, children and adults alike. Everyone is different, and I try to accommodate those differences as best I can.

CECILE, Tutor

I grew up in the Paris area, where I greatly enjoyed the cultural life. I received my Master’s degree in Spanish from the University of Paris Ouest la Défense and successfully completed the competitive test to become a certified teacher (C.A.P.E.S.). I taught middle and high school students for about ten years, and organized trips and exchanges to Madrid and Barcelona to foster language learning.

In 2014, I relocated to Seattle. I have been teaching French since 2015 to Officers of Special Operations Forces at the Department of Defense, and at Alliance Française de Seattle. I love sharing my passion for languages in order to broaden cultural awareness and create bridges between people.

When I am not working, I like to spend time with my 14-year-old daughter, cook, read, learn languages, and check out independent cinema.

AUDE, Tutor

Born and raised in Normandy, France, I studied English, Spanish, Chinese in Paris, as well as human resources and coaching in personal development. Two years ago, I crossed the ocean with my 15-year old daughter to join my husband.

I am a French instructor at Alliance Française, and I like private classes as well as collective intensive week classes. My strengths are: A positive attitude, tailoring my teaching to my students’ needs, boosting their motivation, and reinforcing their confidence in themselves to go further.

I like psychology, medicine, travel, history, art, music and cooking. I also like boating and playing ping pong.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing this magic moment that is the discovery of the French language and culture.
