In middle school, I began taking French instead of Spanish because I wanted to be different. By the time I reached college, I knew I wanted to be proficient in at least one foreign language - so I ended up majoring in it, and spending two years in Paris during graduate school. Languages are fun, and I hope to help my students discover this, too! Look out also for my blog articles in French on the TakeLessons blog.

About Beth
I earned my BA in French with a minor in math from Pomona College, followed by my Masters in French Language Education from the Sorbonne University in Paris. I have six years of experience teaching English and English as a foreign language to middle and high school students.

I have taught private violin and viola lessons since the beginning of 2012. As a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, I have completed their violin pedagogy courses for Suzuki books one through four. I have played in various local orchestras since high school, including the San Diego Youth Symphony, the Pomona College Orchestra, the San Francisco Civic Symphony, San Francisco Civic Strings, the West Sacramento Community Orchestra, and the Rancho Cordova Civic Light Orchestra. I also play handbells, and currently play with RiverBells Sacramento.

Mrs. Jen has been a violin teacher for our daughter for 3.5 years. She is an extremely qualified and talented musician who deeply cares about her students and is committed to teaching. She is kind and patient, but also effective and motivating. When our 8 year old daughter learned Mrs. Jen was moving she said, "I probably will never have as neat or special of a violin teacher as Mrs. Jen"- and she's right!

First lesson was fine. We took a few minutes to find each other in a cafe setting but as it was also a meet and greet session I wasn't too concerned about time. As it turns out Beth more than made up the time. She's very pleasant and easy to speak with. We went over my goals, simple traveler type words, phrases and questions, and a work schedule to cover the next several weeks. Beth told me how she was going to approach teaching me after listening to my goals. I'm looking forward to the next session where we can focus on learning the language.

*****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.

Every student has his/her personal needs. I first make sure I understand what the student/learner is looking for and I adapt to him, her with personal attention and content. I have been a coach on Rosetta Stone (conversational French) and a French tutor ( middle and high school) for more than 7 years, making sure my students progress. A language is something "alive". I mean by this that I focus on practical and useful expressions when my student wants conversational lessons. If my student struggles at school with grammar, I reassure him or her and make him or her confident and together we progress to B and A grades.

About Martine

Austin, TX

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.

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!

Allez-viens! I have been speaking and studying French for over 10 years. It was my first foreign language and I am passionate about facilitating that language learning process for others. I have a BA in French Comparative Literature and I have actually lived in France in a small and culturally rich town where learning the language was the only option. While there, I attended a French Université. My MA in education enables me to proactively tailor lessons to student needs, goals and strengths to ensure the most constructive and effective learning environment.

About Clarissa
Focus on the student is paramount for my lesson planning. Each student will learn differently through varied interests, pacing needs, and goals for their language development. Thus, my approach and materials will vary depending on the needs and experience of the student. I want her or him to want to learn.

I teach a range of student types from young children looking to learn conversational French in an engaging format, to teens looking to polish their writing style in both English and French, to adults pursuing fluency for wok or leisure. I know my own hobbies (which include backpacking, hiking, travel, reading, and language learning) have influenced my linguistic journey, and my students' interests drive their own journey similarly.

I currently hold three degrees in French and Learning theory: a Masters in Secondary English& Learn
ing Theory, a Bachelor's in French & Comparative Literature, and an Associates in Early Childhood Learning & Development. This, combined with my extensive experience with the AP system and the time that I lived in and attended l'université in France saturate my pedagogical choices and methods in teaching both these subjects and the satellite subject areas such as diction, study skills, reading and writing.

In addition to over ten years of experience teaching, I also have firsthand experience learning four foreign languages, giving me a real-world glimpse into the challenges and the joys of a new language. It is my love of the learning process, patience and passion for these subjects that are most efficacious in the tutoring process.

bonne chance et à bientôt!
