Introduction: "Just Say Oui" Mission Statement: To make learning French engaging and challenging through personally designed lessons building upon each other, to help you advance quickly and efficiently to the next level - while having FUN! Are you looking to attain a particular level of mastery in French as described in the Common European Framework (CEFR) descriptors or The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) guidelines? Are you preparing to take the DELF or Advanced Placement exams? Or, are you wanting to maintain your current mastery of French? With 15 years teaching experience, we can work together to achieve your goal. My lessons integrate American and European methodologies and supplemental activities targeting listening, reading, speaking and writing skills. Additional independent practice is provided through auto-scored online activities. Progress is monitored and assessed during each lesson. Finally, I received a Fulbright Grant from The US Department of State in 2011 via The Classroom Teacher Exchange Program.

French Lessons

My son, taking High School French 2, wanted extra help understanding French. He also wanted to practice speaking French to know if he was pronouncing words correctly. Guy was the perfect fit. He's easygoing so they could work their way through a lesson at my son's pace. And Guy helped with pronunciation so that my son felt more confident speaking in class. Guy also had worksheets my son could access via google docs for extra work on specific topics. He works well with teenagers, encourages the student, and he knows how to teach someone to speak French at their pace. I'd recommend Guy to anyone looking for help learning French.

Monsieur Guy was just exceptional. My daughter was trying to learn a half year of French in 6 weeks to get caught with her grade in a new school, and Guy made the entire process not just easy but fun. He even bought her the textbook she would be using at school and mailed it to her. His lesson plans and prepared materials were wonderful. He’s such a caring, authentic teacher and I could not recommend him more!

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

    With new students, I ask about previous experiences they have had with the French language. I ask students to speak about their preferred leaning styles and state their language goals. In response, I prepare a variety of activities which are thorough and rigorous and that relate directly to what my students are studying. These carefully selected activities are intended to reinforce what students are currently learning and to globally enhance their language skills.

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

    I have a BA in French and Psychology with a minor in Sociology and an ESL Certification. I studied French language, culture and literature. I have lived, worked and traveled extensively in Southern France. I received a Fulbright Grant from The US Department of State in 2011 via The Classroom Teacher Exchange Program. You can read a published article about it by clicking on the "website" section above. Additionally, I regularly participate in the New Jersey World Language Summer Technology Institute, The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Workshops as well as the American Teachers of Foreign Languages(AATF) professional development workshops and the Foreign Language Educators of New Jersey (FLENJ) professional development seminars.
