Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

So, you want to speak French? I love this language! I earned my minor in French at the University of Michigan, during which time I tutored the subject and helped frustrated students to actually enjoy the class and bring up their grades! Let's get together and start speaking this beautiful language in a fun, enthusiastic way.

About Stacey
I am a lifelong student of many subjects. My approach to teaching is one of patience and enthusiasm. I do my best to understand the student's learning style and teach accordingly.
I have been a professional actor, model, and singer for 10 years. I specialize in on-camera acting for TV commercials, industrial video, and host. Most of the modeling I've done is commercial print and live promotional modeling. I've taught group acting classes to kids ages 6-17, including on-camera auditioning, stage directions, script analysis, and business skills (headshot/resume, finding an agent, industry terms, etc.).
My singing experience includes pop, musical theatre, and jazz. I've coached students who believed they were hopeless, and they were pleased to discover their gifts and see growth!
I am a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and have taught
for 3 years, both group classes and privately.
I minored in French in college and tutored beginning French.
My motto: Never stop learning!

Trying to sing in front of someone is very intimidating for me but Stacey made me feel comfortable from the start. She was very professional and the lesson took a very logical sequence that I could understand. In the past I took lessons from another teacher and my experience with Stacey far exceeded my previous experience and exceeded my expectations...with her help I may actually be able carry a tune!

About Monique A.

Close

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet you!

About Monique

Hello !!! Bonjour !!!

I am 27 and originally from Belgium. Currently, I teach French to students mostly in southern california but I also teach English to students in Paris through Skype. I love it !!! My youngest student is 5 and she is learning so quickly. During the day, I am a translator for both French and Spanish for a company in Commerce, CA. What are you waiting for set up your lesson today ! A Bientôt j’espère ?

About Amandine
I currently work as a proofreader and translator for French, Spanish and English. I proofread and translate packaging, marketing features and benefits, while also interpretting when necessary. I love to teach, I enjoy taking different approaches and always assign of bit of "fun" homework so we can discuss it in the language you are studying in our next lesson. I try to make an attempt in only speaking that language especially with the older students, immersion is a very BIG step in establishing the phonetics and comprehensive skills of any language. I visit Belgium and France about once a year but I refuse to leave California :) I can travel to you or we can meet at a Starbucks, library or other venue of your choice. I can also teach online, looking forward to meeting you...

During my student teaching experience, I developed and initiated a curriculum sequence on French reading and comprehension.
This collaborative unit involved working with the other teachers within my team.
In my work with the classes, I stressed critical thinking and the incorporation of
culture and science units into the course. The student response was very encouraging, as we had a 100% passing rate for this section. In addition, our team met state curricula guidelines and received numerous positive comments from students’ families regarding the class material.

About Elena
My name is Elena. I am very pleased to welcome you to my French lessons! I have been teaching French for all age groups (beginning from 3 years old kids to the adult advanced level) for more than 20 years and I am really happy to provide my students with the experience and skills I have acquired for all the years.

I have worked with the kids of all the age groups creating cooperative learning, hands-on and minds-on approach. I also participated in "Write-to-Read" program in California and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills. I always try to create an individual approach to every child to develop his/her unique language skills and personal perception.

I am a professionally credentialed and certified teacher from California state and I am happy to share my
experience and my love for French with all students and their families.

Sincerely,

Elena

Bonjour, tout le monde! Je m'appelle Gabrielle!

The way that foreign languages are taught in the United States is unnatural and boring. This leads many to believe that learning another language is a waste of time or too difficult. My lessons will challenge the status quo from "sitting and getting" to "learning and living" (your best life, of course). I will do this by incorporating culture into the lessons. Each language is heavily influenced by culture (or way of living) therefore leaving it out does everyone in the situation an injustice. We will be reading books/articles in French, listening to French music, trying out French cuisine in the area, and learning French history. I will also address perks to learning French in particular. In addition, I will show how complex grammatical concepts can be reduced to simple equations such as 1+1=2. I will also make lessons interactive. For example, using games or having impromptu converations to develop oral skills. This experience ...

About Gabrielle
Bonjour tout le monde! Je m'appelle Gabrielle

If you want to learn French, you're reading the right bio! My name is Gabrielle and I've been studying French since I was 12 years old. I am now 22 years old. I also have a bachelors degree in French from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I studied abroad in France for three months at the Université de Lyon 2 and I will be teaching in France this September.

Enough about me, let me ask you a question? Do you disagree with the approach of "sit and get" when it comes to learning? Do you want to learn and live (your best life)? Well, look no further! My lessons aim to make the process enjoyable by learning more than just the grammatical structure of the language. We will take a look at French culture, music, cuisine, history etc. This experience will be interactive. For example, playing g
ames to strengthen vocabulary or watching a video and then discussing in an impromptu manner about the topic. The goal is for you to learn French, but who says it can't be fun along the way.

My judgment-free learning environment makes learning a foreign language easy. I have helped various students achieve their goals! Whether a struggling student thinks this isn’t their strength, or an adult preparing for a trip simply wants to show up fluent in the basics - I can get you there! There is no better feeling than completing a conversation in a different language with friendly partner.

About Kate
Ciao and bonjour! My name is Kate. I’m so passionate about foreign language that is has made its way into each of my day jobs. I currently work as assistant director for a youth orchestra in Austria (where I learned German by immersion) and in Denver as an event planner. During my university days, I took French classes and tutored levels I-II. My students were often the LEAST confident, but I made them feel comfortable. And they all passed, if not aced, their exams! When preparing students for their trip to Austria for the orchestra, I emphasize practical phrases as well as tools to help them build their own communicative needs. My environment is friendly for practice at your pace and in your learning style. Whether for school, travel prep, or your personal bucket list, there’s no better use of money than learning a new language. Unless i
t’s for travel...but we can get there eventually! My warmest wishes - liebe Grüße - amicalement - Kate

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I use my experience both as a student and teacher to simplify difficult concepts.
