I teach children and adults from beginner to upper intermediate level. I studied the language for a year at a French institution and then I went to France to improve my skills. I want my students to learn a great variety of vocabulary and to feel comfortable in speaking the language.

My teaching philosophy is learning can be fun! I use didactic material to teach the language.

Really great vocal teacher. He's very patient to his students. He goes on all the topics about singing. He's really good at helping his students prepare for a song. He doesn't waste time on any unnecessary practice. He teaches his students how to practice at home. I learned a lot of singing terms from him as well. Overall, I think he's a great vocal coach.

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.

About Diane C.

San Francisco, CA

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! Hallo!

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 s
chool diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree, and I am certified to grade French exams from A1 through C1 (university level). Currently I teach after-school, coordinate a museum visit program (en français) and manage a French exam center.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years, so I am fluent and am now also teaching. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood. I love to learn, even if by adulthood, 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.

About Evelyne K.

Henrico, VA

View Full Profile

As I was born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult students. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment.
Having learnt as multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond a year ago, bringing many French books and movies for all ages, which we could use during lessons.

About Evelyne
I’m 44 years old. I moved from Geneva, Switzerland a year ago for my husband’s work. He’s a pediatric clinical and research physician at VCU (MCV). I’m the mother of two teenagers at the Steward's School. We are a native French speaking family.
I have worked since 1999 as a pediatric nurse and a nursing instructor for critical care children and neonates.
I have Swiss degrees in nursing, paediatric, critical care, lactation consultant and pedagogy/teaching.
I would love to tutor/teach to share my knowledge of French language and culture, using my pedagogical background and a good sense of humour.

Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for students of all ages. I have taught over 120 French students at all levels including beginners, AP students, and adult learners. I work with each student to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I use my experience both as a student and teacher to simplify difficult concepts.

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!!!
