I need referrals for a French tutor, for whom French is their first language, who will come to my house on the Riviera for one hour a week (4-5 PM)(maybe 2 hours later.) A Parisien or a Parisienne would be “formidable!”

French Tutor Needed

My friend, Geri, came to Santa Barbara in the late 60's to study French linguistics at UCSB. She is an expert on French pronounciation and conversation. She has decades of experience teaching, and is personable, and engaging - formidable in her knowledge but completely approachable.
However, she is American not French, and no longer lives in SB. She teaches online on Zoom for private lessons, and has an 8 lesson course on video. I would suggest that you check out her website and scroll down to the interview video.

I know this isn't exactly what you were looking for, but she is definitely worth considering.

Hello. I just moved to Santa Barbara and I am a french native speaker, born and raised in Belgium. I live on the Lower Riviera and I would be pleased to give some tutoring classes. Do not hesitate to contact me if interested.

At The Howard School they teach French from Preschool to 8th Grade, they have a wonderful teacher who is from France and still retains her french charm and accent. They even celebrate the French holidays at the school. I am not sure what her availability is, but I would call The Howard School and ask for her. She is marvelous. Her name is Madame Griffin. Good Luck.

Bonjour!

I am a French native, have lived in SB for 16 years and have extended experience tutoring and teaching French, with a specialty in conversational skills. I have worked with children, adults and entrepreneurs. Last year I organized and hosted a monthly conversation group that was well attended and a lot of fun! My topics of choice are travels, culture and art. I love to share French music and film references- those are ideal to train the ear.
Please reach out and I'll share more info.
A bientôt!
