I have a BA and and an MA in French and have studied abroad in both France and Québec. This is my fourth year teaching French to elementary, middle, and high school students as well as college students and adults. Within the first few lessons you'll feel yourself increasing in proficiency with an immersion French method. With my individualized lesson plans, you will feel prepared for your oral presentation, next trip to a Francophone country, or your new job.
As a PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching and current University of Arizona instructor, I bring my expertise to the field to make learning hands on and interactive for all ages, both in person and online.

About Natalie
Hello, bonjour, hola! I'm Natalie and I've been tutoring for eight years and formally teaching for five years. I've loved helping students meet their goals in French, English, and Spanish, and I look forward to helping you.

I hold a B.A. in French and Chinese and an M.A. in French Linguistics, both from University of Florida. Currently, I am a second year PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching. As such, I am truly centered on helping you achieve your language goals, whether that means traveling abroad, passing a language test, or communicating in your work or school environment. My flexibility and enthusiasm coupled with individualized lesson plans will help increase your confidence in communicating in other language(s).

I'm dedicated to help you becoming bilingual or proficient for travel needs in another language
. Bilingualism not only makes you smarter, as you have to learn to switch in between languages and inhibit one while using the other, it also makes you less likely to get Alzheimer's or dementia (New York Times, 2012). So what are you waiting for? Let's get you on your language learning journey today! Bon voyage! Buen viaje!

My most popular available services on Take Lessons include (but are not limited to):

**French**
Tutoring for junior high, high school, and college students; private lessons (French for travel, French for business, French grammar and vocabulary, and/or French for fluency)

**English Accent Reduction**
Focus on pronunciation of sounds in English, intonation, stress, and common English reductions. Achieve your goals by practicing English in business and/or academic contexts (interviewing for a job, making small talk, giving presentations at work, etc). You'll learn common idioms as well. After 10-15 classes, all of my Accent Reduction students see a strong improvement in their accent and feel confident in their English interactions (even on the phone!).

**Spanish**
Tutoring for junior high, high school, and college students; private lessons (Spanish for travel, Spanish grammar and vocabulary, and/or Spanish for fluency)

Experience first. I am a French native with native fluency in English. I have taught hundreds of hours, and I have helped many people reach their language goals. Effectiveness and enjoyment are my two favorite keywords. Since I am very good at learning languages as well as teaching them (I can communicate decently in 8) I am a great ally and mentor for anyone learning a new language. I know many techniques, tools and approaches that really speed up the process. I am also extremely flexible in my approach. Your specific learning style determines how we work together. Meeting many new people and establishing a relationship of trust and mutual appreciation with them. I also love to see people shine and reach their goals. It is always satisfying to show someone how to learn efficiently and enjoyably.

About Jean-Paul
I am a skilled professional language teacher. I teach French, Spanish, English, Italian, Mandarin and Hindi. (all levels). I am a native French speaker but I also have native fluency in English (I have lived in the U.S. since I was a teenager).

Teaching and languages have defined my life. I seek to make learning FUN as well as effective. If you need straight "bring up your grade" "pass a tough test" help, I will also be there for you.

I love to teach and I love meeting a great variety of students. I believe anyone can learn a language and that it can be fun as well. I am very committed to helping all my students reach fluency efficiently.

I always see learning a language as an exciting journey. I have a Master's degree in French from Arizona State and 25 years of teaching experience. I also worked as a language professor at Elmhurst
College, IL and at Indiana University Northwest. I have taught thousands of hours.

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
