Tania is superb! I was very skeptical about online learning, but considering current circumstances we had no other choice. I wanted someone easy going, fluent, sufficient , knowledgeable and patient for my daughter. Tania has all the qualities mentioned above.

Private French Teacher

I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities).
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school.
I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.

Private French Teacher

My name is Sophie, I am a native French speaker from Belgium and have over fifteen years of teaching experience. After being a middle school language teacher for years I realized that my passion was for tutoring adults and teenagers one on one or in small groups. I love to build on whatever foundations (if any) my students already have and my approach is fun and interactive, the goal being to communicate as much as possible. I like to think that I make my students confortable enough to actually speak French when in real life situations. That is done by using a lot of open-ended activities such as dialogues, improvisations, Flashcards, games etc.

About Sophie

*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

Online French Teacher

I have studied French since I was a child, and continued studies throughout my undergraduate years. After finishing my music graduate degrees, I pursued continuing education via private study with a native French citizen and language professor.

While I didn't pursue a language degree, many European and native French speakers and teachers have verified the authenticity of my accent and command of the language. While I continue my pursuit of ever increasing skills and fluency, at this point in time I would be most helpful as a tutor or instructor for beginner and intermediate levels of French language learners.

About Jami

I've always had many interests and passions throughout my life and enjoy helping a student explore and develop theirs! Private instruction gives a student the opportunity to have direct interaction with another human being, receive a 'game plan' tailored to their unique learning style and needs, an

Jamie is one of those stellar people who is good at everything she does. She is a first rate teacher, performing violinist, Flutist and scholar. I recommend her without any hesitation.
Diana
I was in my mid 50s at the time I began violin lesson with Jami. As an adult beginner, I was apprehensive about learning the violin. I had no familiarity with the violin or string instruments and I also had concerns regarding scheduling lessons due to an often erratic work schedule and a busy family life. Several violin teachers I had contacted prior to Jami were unwilling to teach an adult beginner.

Jami was an amazing teacher! She was personable, encouraging and alleviated all my fears and concerns. She understood my busy schedule and was very accommodating. The lessons were more relaxed than I had initially anticipated. It did not take long before I began feeling comfortable handling the violin and bow. Through Jami, I also learned a great deal about the history and construction of the violin, music for the violin and music theory.

Jami taught a mix of Suzuki, scales and multiple technique and method books; all complementing each other on my path to progressing as a violinist. As an adult, it was nice to gradually incorporate more tunes a mature adult would appreciate playing while continuing to build on the basics. After the first few months, I particularly enjoyed learning how to play violin duets with Jami or having Jami accompany me on the piano. I always left my lessons with a feeling of accomplishment.

I only ceased lessons due to Jami relocating, but I am looking forward to online lessons once I am more technologically capable of doing so. You will not be disappointed if choosing Jami as a teacher!
Katya
I have worked with Jami Bale for over ten years. She has deep knowledge of both violin and flute, and has profound skills in chamber music. Ms. Bale is demanding yet very compassionate teacher, her students excel at a fast pace and make wonderful professional and amateur musicians.
Ms. Bale was an irreplaceable member of the Chamber Music Seminar faculty and Pittsburgh Youth Concert Orchestra.
Whether the student needs to only keep up with the school curriculum or place a top chair in a youth orchestra, Ms. Bale will be there for you every inch of the way.

"Isabelle tutors my three children in French, ages 9,11 and 13. I have found Isabelle to be a professional person that speaks English perfectly. She is very organized and is a good communicator. It is valuable to me that Isabelle is a native French speaker. This insures that my children will be learning French from her with the proper accent and pronunciation. My children tell me that she uses a variety of methods in class to practice speaking and grammar."

French Verbs and Grammar: Le Passé Antérieur

How do you talk about the past of the past? French tutor Carol Beth L. shares this lesson on conjugating French verbs in le passé antérieur... If you've studied French verbs for long enough, you've probably studied the passé composé and the imparfait to discuss events that took place in the past. But what do you do when you want to discuss events that happened before other past events? Use the passé antérieur. In English, this tense corresponds pretty closely to the past p …
