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.
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.
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.
My name is Esther Le Grézause, I come from Brittany, and I moved to the US in 2012.
I have a PhD from the University of Washington and from the University Paris Diderot – Sorbonne Cité. I taught French at UW for 4 years and I have been a French tutor for almost 10 years! My specializations are phonetics and speech disfluencies. I also studied computational linguistics, second language acquisition and pronunciation, as well as second language pedagogy. During my spare time I love to travel, go climbing, spend time in the mountains, and dance the Lindy Hop!
When I teach French I like to help people understand the linguistic mechanisms at work in the French language, especially with respect to pronunciation. I also enjoy helping people achieve a global understanding of the world-wide Francophone culture.
