Private French Teacher

Parlez-vous français? French was the first foreign language I learned, and it was definitely a gateway language. I loved learning every detail of the grammar, every rule, every inevitable exception. I took advanced courses at UCI as well as studied in a French university for a semester, so I have lots of materials for us to work with.

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.

Hello, my name is Max, and I would love to teach you French. I have a great passion for romance languages, and I have devoted a large percentage of that time studying French. I took many French classes during my time at university and I have studied French 1-4 and some upper level French classes. I know the language and grammar well, and I would love to teach you. I have taught French in a middle school, elementary school, and privately at all levels so I know how to teach according to your level. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I wish you luck with your studies in the future!

Max has been a stellar double bass tutor for my son. He caught on right away how to work with him and improve his playing, technique and music theory. You can really tell he has a passion for music (especially the double bass) and teaching. Will continue to have my son study under him :)

Max was very helpful as a teacher. He gave me a lot of good insight into picking the bass for bluegrass music. I've been primarily playing bowed music. I plan to continue my lessons with him.

"My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra."
