French Lessons in Phoenix, AZ

By Julie M. - Phoenix French Teacher

My name is Julie M., and I have just moved to Phoenix from Brussels, Belgium, a small country in Europe located just north of France. Before moving to Phoenix, I wanted to make sure I found local resources for French speakers. I browsed Google to try to find ways to meet people, and I came across a site called Meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/).

I love the idea behind Meetup! There are over 20 million people involved in Meetup groups in about 180 countries around the world - people who love to garden, hike, walk their dogs together…you name it!

The registration process was very straight forward, and in just minutes, I created a profile with my interests (wanting to meet fellow French speakers) and my preferred location (Phoenix). From then on, the site suggested a list of groups I might be interested in joining.

After joining a group, I have met people who are interested in learning French and want to practice what they’ve learned in their French lessons in Phoenix. The activities range from going to happy hour, having a dinner together, joining a wine tasting, watching a French movie at someone’s house…the possibilities are endless. I found out that there is a small community of French speakers in the Valley (either native speakers or people wanting to learn this beautiful language), which is pretty awesome. It’s a good way to not lose your French. You can also help people learn or improve their French practice and make great friends!

I joined The North Phoenix French Speakers Meetup and The Scottsdale French Speakers group. Other than those groups, be sure to check out The Phoenix French Language and Culture Meetup (which accepts younger students) and The Phoenix French Language Meetup group.

From a student’s perspective, I think that these groups are a great, informal type of learning experience. Don’t get me wrong: taking French lessons in Phoenix is important to get the basics right! However, by participating in these groups, you can get a hands-on practice of what you have learned in class with other native speakers, which adds a tremendous value to your learning process.

From a teacher’s viewpoint, I find it very fulfilling to help and encourage students to perfect the foreign language that they desire to speak. It gives a great insight on what newbies are striving to improve, whether it be pronunciation, sentence structuring, meanings of words within a certain context or just getting over the fear of making mistakes and just talk.

I really encourage you to get involved in these groups. You may even want to consider joining a group and making it grow! You can also create your own community in a few easy steps: you just have to commit to create a real, face-to-face community. See you soon in one of the groups in Phoenix, dear students!

Bonjour a tous!

Dear French Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons always begin with a dialogue, no matter your level. From how you are feeling, to what you did during the week, to the weather of your best friend's gossip, we warm up with a conversation I type out as we go.

The rest of the lesson is then spent reviewing previous work and introducing new material in a variety of ways, constantly setting a rule in practice. Poems, songs or texts, depending on your interest, keep the content alive and interesting.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. No matter what your reasons for learning a foreign language are, ultimately it's a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. I have taught for many years and learnt that everyone is "language talented" when they actually want to speak a new language. And if you are one of them I garantie that my method will work for you.
3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

DON'T FORGET TO GO TO MY VIDEOS AND TAKE YOUR FIRST FRENCH TEST! BONNE CHANCE!

3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

*****My Students*****

For over 6 years of professional experie
nce as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and implemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.

Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied during the learning process and that is when your classes are comprehensible, interesting and engaging.

*****Program features*****

It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.

Each session is 50 minutes.

Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.

Teacher's support 24/7.

Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.

The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.

*****Recommendations*****

More recommendations can be provided upon request.

I am originally from France. I really enjoy teaching French because kids challenge all the time, in a nice way. You've got to explain things all the time and that gives me a fresh perspective on things and keeps me questioning things myself. I enjoy taking my time to teach and improve the kids to learn the language while at the same time being very patient to explain deeply the material. It has been 3 years now that I teach french. I make sure that my students are comfortable and productive with the work we put on. I am also very fun and open to help them to speak up when they have difficulties with the pronunciation. Come learn french with me we will make the lessons fun and very productive :).

About Leila
I am very fun and open to help my future students to speak when they have difficulties with the pronunciation. When I teach, I give all my best to make sure my students understand the material and improve themselves during the lessons. I am VERY PATIENT when it comes to explaining things and to build prior knowledge. I speak clearly in ways that make the lesson clear. I am also really organized, can break things down and clarify the objectives. I never try to trick my students and my goal is that everyone experience success. It includes me also, I succeed when my students do :).

I'm a native experienced and flexible French tutor and have worked with students of all ages. My multi language learning journey has taught me to craft different methods of dissecting and teaching a foreign language while making it fun! Language learning goes beyond lessons, it is in activities and games as well.

I tutor students of all different ages and experience levels. Knowing how it's like to learn foreign languages, I provide just what is needed for you to stay motivated.
