Austin, TX

View Full Profile

I took four years of French, including one AP credit, in high school. I earned As in all four years. I have been abroad several times in my life, one summer I even took a trip to France where I stayed exclusively with a French family.
I am familiar with all the regular verb conjugations and many of the irregular ones as well. My vocabulary is fairly extensive and my strength is conversational language.

About David
My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I l
ike to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

I believe that though textbooks and grammar are necessary, students learn best by being exposed to the language so that is why I use a lot of oral exercises as well (dialogues, conversations, questions...).
My goal is for my students to be able to communicate in French, whether for pleasure, for work, on vacation etc.
Being a language teacher, I have all the pedagogical background as well as the knowledge of the language to make your lesson worth your money and time.

About Sophie
Hi, my name is Sophie and I am originally from Belgium. French is my native language and I have over ten years of teaching experience!
I obtained my bachelor degree in education in 2004 and taught languages in a middle school until 2010-from which I got tenure. I then moved to San Diego with my husband when he was offered a job as a researcher at UCSD. My experience also includes teaching one-on-one, semi-private lessons and groups, teaching in China, volunteering in French-American schools, etc.
I love teaching French and my goal is for you to love learning it!
I believe you learn best when you have fun so I try for my lessons to be interactive (dialogues, flashcards, games...) and to make you speak as much as possible!
Depending on your level and interests we will use different texts, news articles, etc. and will progressively l
earn grammar and vocabulary in a natural and enjoyable way!
I am a happy mother of two young boys, I love hiking, yoga, traveling and playing music! I consider myself outgoing and I enjoy meeting people!
I am looking forward to start our French lessons together!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

· Singing · In studio
Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

I believe French is a great language for people to learn. Recently, I spent a semester studying abroad at a university in Toulouse, France. For a majority of the time, I was immersed in the local culture and language, and I hope to use my experience to impart some of what I learned to others.

About Lena
I am a graduate student majoring in Music Performance for the Flute. Recently, I graduated from Mansfield University of Pennsylvania with degrees in both Music Education and Music Performance. During my time there, I participated in various ensembles, including their wind ensemble, orchestra, and their opera pit.

I am also proficient in piano, as I studied it from childhood for about twelve years to accompany my flute studies.

One of my greatest accomplishments so far was when I completed a study abroad experience in Toulouse, France. While I was there, I was permitted by the local conservatory to sit in and observe lessons taught by their flute professor, and at the end of the semester, I was able to have a lesson with him.

As a teacher, I hope to help my students grow as musicians using the techniques I've learned and experiences I'v
e gained as tools I can draw upon. I'm looking forward to meeting with you.
