John est Fantastique! John is extremely professional and fun to work with. Every week he sends pre prepared lessons that you will review together. He makes you feel comfortable and really wants you to succeed. I am so excited to be working with him and know that he will be key on my journey to learning French!

French Lessons

John is a very friendly and funny French tutor! He goes through many different exercises during each lesson and really helps you learn the things you aren't familiar with. I highly recommend him as a tutor if you are a beginner or would like a refresher in the French language!

French Lessons

John has been very enjoyable to learn from and work with! I took French in high school and remembered a few basics, but we didn’t really practice speaking. John has been helping me improve my French speaking and listening skills with patience and awareness of my capabilities with the language. He packs a lot into lessons so none of the instructional time is wasted, but it’s still very friendly and fun. I would recommend John as a tutor to anyone — he’s a great teacher!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Language classes should be affordable because they require several sessions to learn the many tips and tools needed to learn a language properly. My pricing is very affordable and the teaching quality is top-notch. My lessons are a real value for the money. You may choose to enjoy the convenience of taking classes over the phone for just $25 per hour, or I also offer one-on-one 'In-Person' classes starting at $35 per hour in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. Each location is always quoted seperately depending on the distance and the time required to drive to your location.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I typically invite all new students to take advantage of a free introductory assessment phone call to discuss their needs and goals prior to starting a regular teaching session. It is helpful to me to tailor-make the proper learning program for each student. The phone call takes about 10 - 15 minutes, and it reassures the student that he or she is in good hands.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have extensive training in Linguistics, which means that I have experience in understanding the differences and histories of many languages and cultures. My mother was born in France, so I have been speaking French all of my life. My father was born in Mexico, so I have been speaking Spanish all of my life as well. However, I have studied both French and Spanish extensively at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, when I lived in Mexico City, as well as various French schools in Paris and here in the United States. I have also lived in Japan while attending several well-known language schools in Tokyo, Kanazawa, and Fukuoka. (Japanese Learning Certificates are available upon request).
