Basic french, beginner students will have a handle of survival French by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough French to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions.
If you want online class you must install Skype or Ovoo I don't have face time.

Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

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.

I highly recommend anyone who is either a beginner, or any level of French to use Tania as a tutor. I started to learn French at a very basic level and currently I feel very comfortable with the basics of the language. What I like the most about my lessons with Tania is that French is used throughout the duration of the lesson, which really helps one to be submerged into the language.

I believe that though textbooks and grammar are necessary, students learn best by being exposed to the language so that is why I use a lot of oral exercises as well (dialogues, conversations, questions...).
My goal is for my students to be able to communicate in French, whether for pleasure, for work, on vacation etc.
Being a language teacher, I have all the pedagogical background as well as the knowledge of the language to make your lesson worth your money and time.

About Sophie
Hi, my name is Sophie and I am originally from Belgium. French is my native language and I have over ten years of teaching experience!
I obtained my bachelor degree in education in 2004 and taught languages in a middle school until 2010-from which I got tenure. I then moved to San Diego with my husband when he was offered a job as a researcher at UCSD. My experience also includes teaching one-on-one, semi-private lessons and groups, teaching in China, volunteering in French-American schools, etc.
I love teaching French and my goal is for you to love learning it!
I believe you learn best when you have fun so I try for my lessons to be interactive (dialogues, flashcards, games...) and to make you speak as much as possible!
Depending on your level and interests we will use different texts, news articles, etc. and will progressively l
earn grammar and vocabulary in a natural and enjoyable way!
I am a happy mother of two young boys, I love hiking, yoga, traveling and playing music! I consider myself outgoing and I enjoy meeting people!
I am looking forward to start our French lessons together!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

My son loves Roselyne and he dislikes most people, seriously! She is great with kids and she did a great job keeping up with my wild child. It might help to speak slower to him to separate the words more.. Other than that, it went so great! Very happy to try and extend the lessons to be 45min or 60min long.

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.

Bonjour ! I am FRENCH !

I have a Bachelor in Family Life Science, 2011 at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. For the rest I went to school in France and got 5 diplomas in the clothing industry.

I love teaching very much, whether French, which is my native language, or sewing.

I have been a French Lab Assistant at Brigham Young University and helped my students pass their French classes.

I taught French to 4 children of different ages as well while attending BYU as I was living with an American family for about a year, just like an aupair type of situation. I mostly used board games and playing with their toys or on the trampoline to help them practice the words and sentences in real context, that's very important.

I have taught private English lessons in France, and I taught sewing too.

I lived in London for a year working as a seamstress.

If you are traveling to a French speaking country, I'd be happy to assist you via Skype, for example, while abroad.

About Rose
Hello, I am Rose from Antioch. Well, I am originally from France. I've just been imported by my sweet husband Jeff in March 2017.

I teach French and sewing and even sewing in French if you want ! That's ideal if you want to go on an internship or even work in the fashion industry in Paris !

To tell you more about my passion for sewing, I believe I must just have been born with the talent of sewing. I remember my mom running after me as she was scared that I would pock my eyes with her needles... Already at that age I was stuck to the TV obsessed with the Parisian fashion shows at each fashion seasons. But you know what ?

Interestingly enough I am not so much into fashion anymore because I have discovered the importance of wearing the right type of clothing specifically made for each of us. You know, sewing clothing stays the same
whether we are into fashion or not, it really doesn't matter. I'd be happy to share more about that with you.
I also enjoy sewing house items and I like to figure out easy and fast ways to sew these items as well as clothing for children.

I'd be happy to meet you at your house or in mine or online, as you wish.
If you are looking to gain basic sewing skills fast then you found the right person because I have created a course that is specifically designed for that. First we'll learn everything about your sewing machine. Then you will be able to learn how to draw a pattern to cover a book of your choice, sew a zip, buttons, a sewing bag, a simple pin cushion and a little dress that includes pockets as well as bias binding on the armholes. At the end of this few weeks course together you will receive videos of the whole course that you will be able to watch over and over for free as you keep perfecting your new skill. The only thing is that these videos are still in French ;-) My French students have shared with me how happy they were with the details of that course.

And just with these basics you will be able to sew hundreds of items ! Isn't that cool !? Plus, to make it easier for you, I have prepared all the supplies for you in a kit for an extra cost. Ask me about it.

If we meet in person, a minimum of 2 hours per session usually works best.
As for online teaching I have a very good webcam that shows great close up details.
