Tania is a very easy going teacher. This helps the student remain relaxed during those difficult parts of the lesson. When it gets challenging for the student, it is important that no judgement be conveyed by the instructor. Only praise. I really appreciate this because learning a new language can be trying. Enjoying my progress so far. Thanks Tania!

Tania is being a great tutor. My interest is to brush up my French after 10 years w/o any practice - focused on conversation. I am really appreciating the classes with her. She brings the right balance correcting what is needed but with encouragement and positiveness to keep you confident and engaged.

About Kokou
I was a French teacher since 2008 in Togo, west Africa. I graduated from from University of Lome in 2007 with a sociology bachelors degree.
My country Togo is a French speaking place and I started my primary’s school academy, I realized that French is a very easy to learn if you pay attention to your teacher . But very difficult when it comes to vocabulary, grammar and verbs .
So , in 2004 , I started organizing vacation classes in my village to help fresh students to have an idea about how to learn and speak French . After 2 years of vaacation classes, students parents started thank me for the improvement I did for their kids . And since then , I started getting motivation of teaching French as a part time job.
I love teaching!!!

About Eric B.

I was born and raised in the Loire Valley of France (the "Valley of the Kings"), where the purest form of French is spoken. Contrary to what you may have been told by other teachers, the accent learned in Paris is harsh and jarring to most people, much like the New York City accent sounds rough to most Americans. But, having also lived in Paris for 22 years, I can teach that accent, too, if that is what you prefer.

In my numerous years of teaching French I have brought many students to complete fluency using the unique, proprietary teaching method I developed.

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled. I also touch on the etymology of words and how English and French are frequently interrelated. This is a great way for ...

About Jorge
I’m a French Graduate Teaching Associate and a Portuguese Graduate Assistant at SDSU. I will obtain my MA in French spring 2020. Then, I plan to continue my studies at UC Berkley where I want to obtain a PhD in Romance Languages and Linguistics. I obtained a BA in French, a BA in Linguistics, a minor in Italian Studies and a TESL certificate from SDSD back in spring of 2018.

I have learned several languages that I would consider myself a language aficionado. I understand the time and dedication that it takes to learn a foreign language specially when you don’t get the daily exposure to the language and culture. Therefore I consider myself a patient person that wants the best for his students regardless of the language they are learning. What matters is the satisfaction of the student in obtaining their language goal.

My goal is t
o obtain my PhD and teach French, and Italian language and linguistics.
