About Jessica

I have been an active performer in both the operatic and concert repertory. In the past few years, I have been a soloist at Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Theater, in the Toledo Orchestra’s Christmas concert, and at Chicago’s Ravinia Festival. I originated the role of Dari in Lookinglass Theater at Ravinia’s production of SitaRam. Recent opera credits include Dorabella in Così Fan Tutte and Mme Lidoine in Dialogues des Carmélites, as well as Beppe (L'Amico Fritz) in 2005 in Italy. She has also performed scenes from L’Elisir D’Amore (Adina), The Rape of Lucretia (Female Chorus), Der Freischütz (Agathe), Die Fledermaus (Rosalinde), Madama Butterfly (title role), Arabella (title role), Suor Angelica (title role), Don Giovanni (Donna Anna, Donna Elvira), and Medea (Glauce). I received her ...

The Best Singing Teacher!

I love going to singing lessons with Jessica. She makes me feel at home and comfortable. So far I have learned a lot and my voice has improved over a short time already. I loved my lessons so much that I've made them longer now. She is a great teacher!

She is a great instructor.
Rory B. Pittsburgh, PA

Very proficient conversationally. Would be most helpful to someone who wants to improve their speaking skills. Learned to speak both in middle and high school and also living in France for a few months a a few years ago. In college I took a year of Russian. Languages come naturally to me and I love them so would really enjoy helping someone improve their oral skills. I would say I am between intermediate and advanced speaking wise but that is not an option.

About Rory

Have helped students with their college and graduate school applications (creating a powerful narrative, editing personal statements), tutored the SAT and LSAT. Given this experience and my varied educational background, I am confident that I can teach students in a variety of different subjects.

I have taught beginning French to college French

About jennifer

I adhere to the John Rassias (Dartmouth College Prof.) motto: Please and instruct… entertain with a purpose. Like Rassias, I believe in the power of Drama, of movement, rapid engagement, rhythm and emotion. I have tried to rid myself of any inhibitions, so the students in turn can do so too… so they can gain confidence and inner pride. Using this artistic expression of empathy, any teacher will become closer in his/her relationship to the students; the students can see, feel and hear just how much the teacher believes in them, believes that anyone can learn a language. I like to offer a full immersion experience, a fast-paced, active class where students find themselves on the edge of their seats excited and ready to participate. Ideally I try to allow little breathing room ...

Austin R. Murrysville, PA

I have been learning the French language for the past 13 years. I have been a witness to many different styles of teaching. Some styles more boring although useful, while some more colorful, focusing on culture, that fall flat when it comes to test day. My goal is to provide a well balanced workshop style environment in which I will allow for you to discover the French language.

About Austin

My name is Austin Ramsey. I got my BA in Psychology with a minor in Biology from Duquesne University with honors. I was a part of the Irene and Eric Simon Brain Research Foundation for a summer, and worked in a chronic pain research laboratory as well as a neurocognitive laboratory during my time at Duquesne University. I have traveled all across the world. I attended grade school in Collingwood, Ontario, where I began learning the French language and continued to study the language for the next 13 years. I know how hard it can be to learn on your own sometimes, and I will sit down with you and help you figure it out.

Ryan P. Pittsburgh, PA

I am eager to help you learn French, and eager to make what can sometimes be the hard, frustrating process of language learning more fun, engaging, and even exciting for you. I stress oral communication and reading of French texts, all while keeping a sharp eye on correct grammar, pronunciation, and sense of idiom.

About Ryan

Ryan P. was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and so remains a major Pittsburgh sports fan, even as he’s lived and worked in other places. In 2013, he graduated with a B.A., magna cum laude, in English Language and Literature from Yale University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Having also studied French and Ancient Greek at Yale, but with travel fare to Ancient Greece being beyond his means, he spent the last year as an English tutor to middle school, high school, and associate’s degree students in Saintes, perhaps the quaintest town in southwest France. Ryan loves to teach. In advance of pursuing a PhD in English literature, he is eager to help students with standardized test preparation and academic coursework.
