Private French Teacher

French is my second language, but it 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 both private and group lessons.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.

Hello,

I was born and raised in France, spent a few years in Montreal then moved here in San Francisco for studies, I am a cellist.
I studied literature for several years and taught a lot in my student years. Besides teaching you the grammar and vocabulary, I will give you tips to get a better accent and will have conversation as much as we can. Learning by speaking with and listening to a french person speak is so much faster !
Lessons can be online if you prefer.

Looking forward to meet you,

Chloé

I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Lesson and teacher were great! Although only an hour in duration, I feel I have learned a weeks worth of language.

Basic french, beginner students will have a handle of survival French by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough French to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions.
If you want online class you must install Skype or Ovoo I don't have face time.

Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all"

I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

you could tell that he not only was a good and patient teacher but that he was interested in well being and was exceptional in his creative approach to teaching! most definitely a 5 star teacher.

There is an art to instruction where you are helping to light the way without causing frustration or embarrassment. Roselyne does a great job."

"I highly recommend Isabelle as an expert in teaching French. She has great fluency in both French and English. Isabelle is from France and she regularly visits family there. Here in the United States, she and her husband have raised a family while she worked as an executive for an international company. These skills come forth beautifully in her style of teaching. For me, after one month of French lessons with Isabelle, I am much more comfortable with daily conversation, pronunciation, and verb conjugation. I enjoy our rapport and look forward to deepening my conversation skills with her."
