Oxnard, CA

Dear guys,

I have been teaching French language at all levels to adults and children for over 10 years, creating my own classes uniquely tailored to each student's goals and dreams. I graduated from UCLA with a specialty in French language, culture and literature. I created and taught the first French classes in Oxnard elementary schools and created and taught French language and culture classes in the Ventura College Community Education.

As a longtime translator, I have worked on significant literary and travel projects from French-English.

I’m thrilled and dedicated to diving into our language classes, with goals and dreams unique to each of you. I’d love to share with you the incredible, simple, awesome tools to enliven your learning journey!

About Jane (Zhenya)
I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and have always had an immense love for languages and cultures of the world. I found that diving into a new language and culture is one of the most incredible, joyful, compassionate and meaningful paths to discovering the world. All the while, rediscovering one’s own unique interests and curiosities. It’s always surprising and rewarding in ways we can’t foresee.

As a longtime, professional independent instructor, I never imagined where my languages and creative work would lead me and the wonderful folks I encountered along the way.

It’s been a journey of incredible variety.

I had the amazing opportunity to create and teach the first Russian, French and Italian classes to children in public elementary schools all around Oxnard. I was invited to teach French and Italian classes i
n the Ventura College Community Education, Russian immersion program for the U.S. Government and English to a team of international entrepreneurs and their families.

This work and my students inspired a joyful dedication to creating live video classes. I discovered that it’s a special, interactive and awesome platform into the world and I love seeing it grow.

I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your language journey.

Till then,

Zhenya

Few years ago, when I was attending LACC and taking grammar classes I thought that my knowledge of Verb Tenses was good enough . I used to write huge essays included a lot of pages. Moreover, I was getting straight As for all the essays that inspired me. Maybe my grammar was really correct, but I’m not sure that I expressed meaning correctly because I didn’t feel and recognize many nuances of Verb Tenses. Since , I started to take your classes I have understood how Verb Tenses are diverse , how flexible meaning they have in order to show our emotions.
Some people say it”s not necessary to use all V.T. Simple Past , Present and Future it”s enough for communication with each other, but I’m not agree with them. Using all V.T. we have made English more rich , natural and beautiful for that reason our life become jucier.
I never had been so fascinated by studying English grammar before I met you 
I have appreciated your teaching full love . You’re always ready to share your skills with the people who want to improve their knowledge. I’m happy that I found you!
THANK YOU MY DEAR Zhenya !!!!!!!! 

About Diane C.

French is my second language, but often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave private lessons.

About Diane
Bonjour! Hello! Hallo!

I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.

My method is to provide grammar (very important in French), vocabulary, conversation, reading, and translation in every lesson, and show how important each component is to the whole. I am overjoyed when my students start conversing without need for translation - even if there are errors!

My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high s
chool diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree, and I am certified to grade French exams from A1 through C1 (university level). Currently I teach after-school, coordinate a museum visit program (en français) and manage a French exam center.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years, so I am fluent and am now also teaching. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood. I love to learn, even if by adulthood, it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.

As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

I am a native French speaker with a several years of experience in teaching French. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Nice, France. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to NYC. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored French to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and French subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker, I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, ...

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting.

I will make my students equally confident into reading or listening french as they do speaking or writing it. My goal is to make my student not only understand conversations but participate and express themselves. I will have games, songs, books and movies to share with my students.

I’m a highly motivated and organized professional with experience as a French tutor for adults and children. I’ve taught in different structures in New York and I have gained experience over the years with the method I use. I’m focusing on oral practise as it is the best way to get immersed and also because beginners tend to imitate what they hear. I also think learning French can’t be achieved properly without a strong understanding of the grammar. Therefore, focusing on exercises is very important and help students understand the structure of the language. I think learning a new language is a rich experience as it gives you new paradigmes and visions carried by the language. As much as learning a new language is hard and could be painful and seen after a few classes as pointless by new beginners, the playful dimension is very important to keep the students motivated.
Over the years, I’ve also noticed that students want to focus on French culture and not only exercises from books and
