About Diza
My passions are teaching, helping people and Architectural Technology. I have wanted to teach new skills to willing students since I was in high school, which is why I have been doing my best to get work which exercises that desire. I moved to new york in 2006 to study Architectural Technology, and before that I studied and graduated from kindergarten to high school in french, which is why I love teaching french. Even though french is my favorite subject I will be equally as happy teaching any other subject on my list.

I have an Associate in Graphic Design and Architectural Technology, I am going to be receiving a Bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology in June 2015 from CUNY'S NYC College of Technology, so I can continue towards seeking a Master's degree in the same field.

I try to make learning and teaching fun and interest
ing to keep my students interested, I hope you choose me for a fun learning adventure.

Thank you for reading,

Hadiza

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational French practice (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

** Discounts will be made available for students wishing to take more than 1 Lesson per week. Please send me a message to make this arrangement.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!). I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France! I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

French is my second language, but 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 private lessons.

About Diane
Bonjour! Hello!

I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.

My method is to provide grammar (very important in French), vocabulary, conversation, reading, and translation in every lesson, and show how important each component is to the whole. I am overjoyed when my students start conversing without need for translation - even if there are errors!

My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high school
diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood, and I love learning, even if by now it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.

As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.
