When I met Jen in 2013, my French was very rusty after studying it passionately in high school then letting a decade pass before picking it up again.
My dream of living in France had just ended after a long summer in Paris, and while my love for French culture was evident, my confidence in the language was very poor. Jen was my life raft back to the country and culture I loved so very much. Being the dedicated teacher that she is, she began to cater all my lessons to my interests in fashion, film, food and travel, so that I could use what I was learning in day to day conversation. We met every week for two years, whether I was working in New York or Skyping her from LA. My weekly dose of Français with Jen was life changing as my confidence in conversation grew, I found I was able to communicate with ease. Jen went from being my very cool tutor to a dear friend who inspires me to follow my dreams every day. I can say without question, I would not be where I am today without the influence of this magnificent woman.

She is truly a teacher at heart and she does not let you speak with any accent.

Jennifer is the best you will find to work with you on perfecting your French. She is truly a teacher at heart and she does not let you speak with any accent. She is kind, prompt, professional, and will get you to the French proficiency you are attempting. Hire her. Don't think about it. She really is the best in NYC.

Jennifer has pushed me beyond my comfort zone. Following years of French in a classroom setting, I was stuck to see what was next for me to move forward towards my dream of fluency. 

Jennifer has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I look forward to our sessions and catching up on each others lives, all the while practicing French -- from bonding over food and a love for the beach + adventure, chatting about life and growing up in a fun and engaging manner, Jennifer has pushed me beyond my comfort zone. Following years of French in a classroom setting, I was stuck to see what was next for me to move forward towards my dream of fluency. She has already helped me enormously in the span of a few months and I look forward to continuing to practice conversational French with her in months + years to come.

Jennifer is our 8th grader's French tutor. She meets with our daughter for an hour most weeks. She is always cheerful and engaging and our daughter seems to like her very much. Our daughter's French is steadily improving and she is getting very good grades in her middle school French class.

She is honestly the best tutor I have ever had.

She is honestly the best tutor I have ever had. Not only do we practice grammar, spelling, and vocabulary, but we also work on conversational French and go over phrases that are commonly used today. Jen is also an incredibly kind person and I always look forward to our sessions. I definitely recommend her!!

I have been taking classes with Jennifer for 7 years and she is a delight to work with. First, she understands how to teach French. Second, she has a lovely personality so that you look forward to seeing her each week. Third, she is extremely intelligent, so discussions (always in French) are interesting. I recommend her very, very highly.

If I could chose ten stars, instead of five, I would give her ten!

Jennifer has been my French tutor, once a week for two hours, for six years! I began with a college-level French (of many years ago), so I have always loved the language, but with Jennifer I have grown to love it even more. Everything has improved, my pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, reading, and conversation. Jennifer is always patient, helpful, encouraging and kind. She constantly varies the lessons and approaches, so nothing grows stale, and she always strives for lessons that address my interests as well as my difficulties. If I could chose ten stars, instead of five, I would give her ten!

Very focused on teaching how french is spoken, rather than simply translating English into French.

Jennifer is a wonderful person to use to learn French. She is very personable and enthusiastic, very knowledgeable about the basics of french grammar and very focused on teaching how french is spoken, rather than simply translating English into French. I look forward to our lessons. She is the best!!!!

Jennifer is the absolute best teacher! I would give ten stars is I could!! I followed her Instagram and after taking french in high school decided I wanted to pick it back up. She is SO sweet and is more than willing to teach via skype if you don't live in NYC. My vocabulary, pronunciation, and confidence in speaking has grown so much in just the 4 shorts months even my family is impressed! I would recommend Be Fluent in French with Jennifer to anyone!

Jennifer has been my amazing French tutor for over 4 years when I married a Frenchman and committed to mastering the language. Unlike traditional classes, she customizes our weekly sessions to fit my specific needs, improving my grammar and colloquial vocabulary in a targeted and relevant way. I am constantly impressed by how much thought she puts into preparing for our classes with print-outs and specific exercises to strengthen my weak points. My son adores "Jenny" and since he turned 2 she has been doing weekly sessions with him as well. It is honestly thanks to her that we are both bilingual!!

Jennifer is the most gifted language teacher I've ever studied with!!! Jen's energy and charm make every session incredibly engaging. She customizes lessons for her students and each week is new and different. She never makes you feel silly for speaking French poorly; she is adept at gently correcting you and keeping the momentum of the conversation going. She is a truly wonderful teacher!!

Jennifer has an incredible ability to curate the class around you as an individual, allowing your interest and growth of learning another language to excel.

I have been taking French classes with Jennifer for over 2 years. In that time frame I went from a true beginner to intermediate. Jennifer has an incredible ability to curate the class around you as an individual, allowing your interest and growth of learning another language to excel. Jennifer is professional as an educator and flexible with the schedules of people learning in NY. I have recommended her to many contacts and will do so in future always.
