I base my classes on the needs of the learners (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, writing, proofreading, etc.) and adapt my approach to their wishes. I ask the learners what kind of feedback (mistakes correction) they would like. I build on what the learners already know to implement further knowledge.
I'm Jessica. Passionate about languages (German, English, Italian, Romansh, …, and of course French :)) and enjoying teaching, I'd be glad to help you improve your language skills in French (and German, and Italian if you are a beginner) through Skype classes as I'm living in Switzerland.
I've just finished my Master's Degree in German and English Literatures with honours. I've a Bachelor's Degree in German, English and French languages and literatures. I successfully finished the first year at the pedagogical school in Biel/Bienne (Switzerland).
I've been teaching at three schools for about three years (German, English, French) and have been a homework tutor and an au pair in Germany, Ireland and England. Therefore, I'm used to working with a diverse public.
I hope that my profile aroused your interest and I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you :)

I met Jessica in a period when I was searching for a French teacher to learn it for my university studies, and I has been very lucky! She is a wonderful teacher, she is very patient and she explains with an easy approach grammar and phonetic problems. She prepared me to B1 level in a quick time whenI was only a novice. I highly recommend her for everybody that wants to start learning French and also to anybody that wants to improve it to an higher level! (5*)
